Reminders

Although it is unlikely that I will forget that I am married to Cameron, my wedding ring is a reminder of the commitment we made on that day.

Genesis 9:1-29

Reference:  v.13  I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. (NIV Bible)

Explore:  My husband and I got married nearly seven years ago.  On our wedding day we exchanged rings as a symbol of our commitment to each other.  We decided that seeing our commitment was to be to each other that we would have the same style wedding band.  Sure enough, mine is a little smaller than Cam's but they are the same design, colour and style.  (Luckily for Cam I didn't want anything too flowery and pretty!)  On the inside of our rings we both have the inscription 'Come What May' engraved as this was the song we walked down the aisle to.  Although it is unlikely that I will forget that I am married to Cameron, my wedding ring is a reminder of the commitment we made on that day.

Application:  God has given us reminders of His love and commitment too.  The rainbow is a reminder that He will never flood the earth again, and thus he sent Jesus to redeem us instead of wiping us out again.  While this reminder looks beautiful in the sky after rain, it is made all the more beautiful when we know of the promise behind it.  

Prayer:  Lord, we could never thank you enough for your promises and your commitment to us.  We are truly humbled by your mercy and grace.  Amen.

What are important reminders for you?  What reminders can we put in our lives to reflect daily on God's love?
