Climbing Rainbows

"Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all the living creatures of every kind on the earth." -Genesis 9:16

#8 - Silhouette

I'm always amazed to see that Father chooses to use me in his plans in spite of my weaknesses and failures. He actually uses my weaknesses to display his strength and wisdom! This poem is fairly old (2004), but still is a great reminder of this inspiring truth.


A hint of something better,
A shape without its core,
A form without its color
Which speaks of something more!

The darkness points to light,
The phantom to its frame,
The imperfections daze us,
But guide us all the same—

I’m faulty and I’m frail,
I’m flawed and warped, and yet
God chooses still to use me,
His lifeless silhouette…


“To keep me from becoming conceited because of these surpassingly great revelations, there was given me a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” —2 Corinthians 12:7-10
