Rain Drops of Promise          

Gabby Brings Home the Gold        

                                  

Over this past week, we've all been excited about the accomplishments of Gabriele (Gabby) Douglas, the pint-sized gymnasts who has earned a special place in gabby douglas olympics rain drops promises our hearts. She accomplished a feat no other African-American gymnast has done--to win the gold in the Olympic all-round competition. She wanted to make history and she did just that.

 

On the day Gabby won that gold medal, she woke up to rain drops on the roof top. She instantly knew it was going to be a great day and great things were about to happen.  

 

Gabby's mother always told her that rain was God's manifestation that something really special was about to happen. Those rain drops on that Thursday morning symbolized victory for Gabby and gave her the impetus she needed to move victoriously throughout a rainy day. At the end of that day, she had brought home the gold and transformed history.

 

I know of another young woman who also went to the Olympics just as hopeful to win as Gabby. On the day of try outs it was also raining. Rain was not an indication of victory for her; it was the exact opposite. Apparently, the rain drops that fell overwhelmed her and she did not make it to compete in the Olympics.

 

I'm always amazed when I see drivers zooming down a wet slippery road as rain drops fall from the sky. It is as though they are not one bit concerned about how slippery the roadway has become from the mixture of gasoline and rain. Nevertheless, I always remember my driver training instructions to slow down on a wet pavement because it can be dangerous.

 

Naturally when I'm driving in the rain, I alter my driving style to accommodate the hazardous conditions. Actually my driving is totally altered, especially if it is at night because I'm trying to focus as well. Sometimes it becomes scary out there. All the way I'm just praying to reach my goal as swiftly as I can. Unlike the other drivers who are zooming by me, I exercise extreme caution. For them, rain is nothing. They still feel in control. For me, rain has become a formidable force to be reckoned with as I proceed to my destination.

 

Rain drops are a constant in our lives. It is something that is going to happen, and yes, it is beyond our control. There are so many things in life that are beyond our control; yet we make a decision to allow them to take us off our game. These rain drops of life can either propel us to unparallel victory or they can cause our defeat. In some instances, the defeat is so catastrophic that we never recover from it. In essence, we leave without the gold.

 

Many of us have chanted that childhood refrain, "Rain, rain go away. Come back some other day." The operative words are "come back." Rainy days will come back. You have to be prepared to face them. It begins with establishing a mantra that forges you beyond those rainy days as Gabby's mother had given her. When she awoke to a rainy day it only meant that it was going to be a great day. She was going to overcome all obstacles and excel. That she did!

 

There will be some rainy days ahead. You might already be in the midst of a rainy day. You may have lost a loved one or a job. You may be in the midst of divorce or a legal battle. Sickness or disease may be raging in your body. But do not let the rain stop you. You may slow down as I do, but you got to be determined to keep forging ahead with passion for the promises of God.

 

You can be overwhelmed by the rain or overcome the rain drops of life. At the end of the day if you overcome the rain and don't allow it to overwhelm you, without a doubt you will bring home the gold medal of victory every time!

SCRIPTURES 

                  

But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold. Job 23:10 (KJV)

 

What I produce is better than gold, pure gold. What I yield is better than fine silver. Prov 8:19 (GW)

 

And I will make them and the places round about my hill a blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessing. And the tree of the field shall yield her fruit, and the earth shall yield her increase, and they shall be safe in their land, and shall know that I am the LORD, when I have broken the bands of their yoke, and delivered them out of the hand of those that served themselves of them. And they shall no more be a prey to the heathen, neither shall the beast of the land devour them; but they shall dwell safely, and none shall make them afraid. And I will raise up for them a plant of renown, and they shall be no more consumed with hunger in the land, neither bear the shame of the heathen any more. Ezek 34:26-29 (KJV)

 

God said, "This is the sign of the promise I am giving to you and every living being that is with you for generations to come. I will put my rainbow in the clouds to be a sign of my promise to the earth. Whenever I form clouds over the earth, a rainbow will appear in the clouds. Then I will remember my promise to you and every living animal. Never again will water become a flood to destroy all life. Gen 9:12-15 (GW)

 

And he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month. And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the fats shall overflow with wine and oil. Joel 2:23b-24 (KJV)

PRAYER

 

Father

The rain drops of life may fall, but I will not be overwhelmed, because I am an over comer. I know that these are Your showers of blessing raining down on me. They represent Your promise that I am coming forth as pure gold. No matter what happens, I am already victorious in everything I do. The rain drops only proclaim that the manifestation of Your best for me is yet to come because at the end of the rainbow are Your promises of an abundant life chocked-full of gold victories again and again. 
 Amen
