Book Review: The Rainbow Moment (Win a Free Copy)

Do You Know What a Rainbow Moment and Have You Ever Had One?

Do you remember a time in your life when all seemed lost…the situation was too difficult and there was no way out? Giving up looked like the only option, but then hope appeared.  A little ray of light…just enough to encourage you to keep going.  God’s love touched your heart.  His grace and mercy and the hope of eternal life revived your weary soul. According to the author Meg Lynch, this is a Rainbow Moment.

“The rainbow itself is a promise of God’s continuing goodness throughout the ages.” Meg Lynch

The Rainbow is a Symbol of Hope

In Genesis 9:8-17 God made a covenant with Noah and mankind that He would never again flood the earth. Each time clouds cover the sky, rainfalls, and a rainbow appears it is a reminder of God’s promise to us.  It is also a reminder of His faithfulness and that God keeps His promises.  Just like in life’s challenging, scary and unfathomable situations the hope of God lives in our hearts.  The promise of His love, strength, purpose and plan helps us to weather the storms of life. With each rainstorm, the rainbow brings hope.

“People will continue to cling to the goodness of the rainbow promise, allowing its hope to bring them out of their circumstances.  This is what the rainbow truly means.  This is what this book is aiming to cultivate in the hearts of those who read it.”  Meg Lynch 

The Rainbow Moment is a Collection of Poetry

Meg Lynch’s artistry is deep and thought provoking.  She writes from personal experience and shares the hope God has given her in her Rainbow Moments. The book can be read in or out of order. It can be used in a personal devotional time or shared with a group.

A Few of My Favorite Poems

I really enjoyed these poems.  They bring comfort.  But what I really like is Meg’s ability to be humble and share the truth of life. We all have discouragement, sadness, and brokenness in our lives. She is able to use her poems to normalize what we go through and then to restore hope by pointing us to God.  On page 47, the poem “There Will Be Days” is one of my favorites.  I quote the last passage:

“There will be days when you want to give-up, 

But you keep fighting 

You try to breathe, and you make it through

Because you’re a survivor, and that’s what you do.” 

Another favorite is on pages 76-77, “Terror and Truth”.  Again, quoting the last phrase- this one makes me want to jump up and dance!

“No matter the circumstance

No matter how great the fear monster is

Truth wins.”

This Book Could Be for You If….

If you love poetry and Christ it is a must! If you love poetry but don’t know Christ…click here to learn more, then get the book to help deepen your relationship with Him. And if you are not into poetry but love Christ…take chance and see if God will speak to you in a new way.  This would also make a nice gift to a friend or beloved family member.

  2. Katie | 29th Dec 17

    I love God’s promise to us through the rainbow! Such a symbol of hope in our sometimes dreary circumstances. I enjoy poetry, so thank you for this recommendation!

    • JJ | 29th Dec 17

      So true! I am glad you like poetry. It is a great way to communicated and/or express life/emotions.

  3. Sarah | 29th Dec 17

    I like this, “There will be days when you want to give up,

    But you keep fighting

    You try to breathe, and you make it through

    Because you’re a survivor, and that’s what you do”. It is encouraging.

    • JJ | 30th Dec 17

      You got it! So real and encouraging :).

  4. Julie | 29th Dec 17

    Looks like a great book! Yes, I’ve had a rainbow moment in my life!

      Awesome!! God is good :).

  5. Karla | 31st Dec 17

    These words are incredible. Thank you for the recommendation.

    • JJ | 31st Dec 17

      I agree…I love the title!

  6. Stephanie Jeannot | 31st Dec 17

    You don’t know how much I needed this. Thank you for inspiring that sense of hope in me. God bless!

    • JJ | 31st Dec 17

      Praise God! He loves you…no matter what you are going through today…there is hope.

  7. Kayleigh | 1st Jan 18

    I love that term! ‘A rainbow moment’! I have had lots of rainbow moments when i’m struggling, they are the best feeling ever.

    • JJ | 2nd Jan 18

      Awesome! Yes, it is a great way to explain those inspiring and hopeful moments!

  8. Alaina-Lee Monster | 1st Jan 18

    I’ve defiantly had some rainbow moments in my life. Our God is an awesome God <3

    • JJ | 2nd Jan 18

      I totally agree 🙂

  9. Ellie plummer | 1st Jan 18

    Rainbows are beautiful and have such a great meaning behind them.

  10. Kesha | 1st Jan 18

    God never promised that every day would be easy. I was having a conversation with someone the other day and he was talking about the trials of life. I told him that I consider them “light afflictions” and they don’t compare to what some people are going through. It is all about perspective. God promise that He would never leave nor forsake us. I’ve had so many rainbow moments that we would need days to discuss it. 😉 Thanks for the recommendation!

    • JJ | 2nd Jan 18

      Yes, just knowing God loves us is enough for a rainbow moment to keep us going when it is tough. BUT God is sooo good and we often get more. SO thankful for your rainbow moments!

  11. Melanie | 1st Jan 18

    I do love poetry and rainbows too…I know my mother would love to read this x

    • JJ | 2nd Jan 18

      Awesome :).

  12. Laura Dove | 1st Jan 18

    Oh this sounds like such a lovely book. Rainbows are very special to our family having four rainbow babies, when I see a rainbow it reminds me of our second son we lost.

    • JJ | 2nd Jan 18

      I am so sorry about the loss of your son. I am thankful that rainbows provide hope for you…that you will see him again one day. Hugs.

  13. Kacie | 1st Jan 18

    I don’t believe in God but I think everyone can have their own rainbow moment if they look within themselves 🙂

    • JJ | 2nd Jan 18

      Thank you Kacie for replying. I appreciate your perspective.

  14. Kendra | 1st Jan 18

    Sounds like a very interesting and inspirational read! It would be the perfect gift for my mom!

    • JJ | 2nd Jan 18

      Yes this would make a great gift book.

  16. Sheri | 2nd Jan 18

    I love things and there is so much to be learned from these words. Life is tough at times, but we are tougher.

  17. Stephanie Merry | 2nd Jan 18

    What an interesting book, I’ll have to add it to my wish list x

    • JJ | 2nd Jan 18

      Awesome! Let me know if you get and what your favorite poem is :).

  18. NAti | 2nd Jan 18

    This is so interesting! I don’t think I’ve ever had a rainbow moment, because I have (until now) never lost hope or felt lost, even in the hardest moments. I suppose I’m either very irresponsible or very blessed …

    • JJ | 2nd Jan 18

      That is great. I am not sure I have ever met anyone who never lost hope.

  19. Ariel | 2nd Jan 18

    I definitely know and love rainbow moments. I live for them at some points and sometimes I love to be others rainbow moments. They are very special moments and can honestly save someone’s life. Thank you for sharing this!

    • JJ | 2nd Jan 18

      Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Yes we can be the rainbow in someone’s life too :).

  20. Linda | 2nd Jan 18

    Sounds a lovely book. I’m not particularly religious but I think everyone can get something from spirituality and learn something from poetry.

    • JJ | 2nd Jan 18

      I appreciate your comment. Thank you!!

  21. Amy Dong | 2nd Jan 18

    Sounds like a great option for reading! I’m His gal for sure, though not a huge poetry reader… I still do love reading when I have time!

  22. Hannah | 2nd Jan 18

  24. Shruti Arora | 4th Jan 18

    Thats a real review you made be want to read the book by explaining the beauty of it, without disclosing the actual content. Always this saying pop into my head after reading your review, “Fear knocked on the door, Faith answered it. No one was there”
