Behold, All Things Are Become New

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 2 Corinthians 5:17

I was thinking the other day about this girl who I went to school with. Now for people who don't know me let me give you a little history about myself. I did not go to a Christian school, but a public school. There was only one Christian school but it would have been a drive to get there. Even if I didn't go to a Christian school I still was surrounded by good teachers. Teachers who would quote verses from the Bible and tell Bible stories to us. I was raised in the country and I wouldn't have it any other way. My mom would have loved for me to go to a Christian school, so I could have had classes that revolved around the Bible, because I love the Bible so much.

So anyways back to this story about the girl from my school. I had never met her until I went to junior high (that's when the four elementary schools in the county would go together). She would have her good days and she would have her bad days. Sometimes she was really nice and other times she was really mean! Something changed when we went on to high school though. She asked Jesus to come into her heart and she had really CHANGED! She was so nice and in the mornings some of the kids would go to the library to have prayer before school started. If it wasn't me leading the prayer she would lead the prayer. She was really a testament to the verse in 2 Corinthians 5:17!!!

Note: My senior year of high school there was a Christian school that opened up not to far from my house, but it was my senior year and I decided I needed to finish my schooling with my friends.

Kristi over at Thimble Thoughts was talking about that rainbow today in her blog. A couple of weeks ago when we had a bad storm, after the storm was over there appeared a rainbow in the sky. Not only one rainbow but two! Every time I see a rainbow, I'm in awe of the beauty of it. Also I always think of the promise God made never to destroy the whole world with water again as in Noah's day.

Genesis 9:13 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.

Genesis 9:14 And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:

Genesis 9:15 And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.

The photos are from my friend. These were taken after the storm. In the first one if you look to the left of the rainbow, you can see a rainbow that is not very bright. If I hadn't been so crazy I would had a better photo to share with you that I had taken with my phone, but I accidentally discarded the photo. The photo I had taken you could see both rainbows really well.
