The rain is only a nuisance when you haven't been harvesting seeds! My whole life people have been watering seeds that they have planted in me and now I am ready to watch the rain pour down on these seeds I have been planting in myself!
Are you ready for what you have been praying for? Are you ready for what you said was yours, already? If you are ready then stop complaining about the storm that you are currently in. We know that storms don't last forever even when they seem like they will. I met a farmer who did not complain about the rain...he said all year I've been planting these seeds and it hasn't rained once...I've been waiting for the rain so that I can reap from the seeds I have been harvesting. There are so many moments in life when people may say something to me and I am literally like I have to write this down or write about it. When he said this to me it made my mind wander...constantly we complain about things because we are not prepared.
Think about your life as a harvest...the seeds have been planted, diligently you have been planting seeds in your life for your purpose...in order for the seeds to grow and blossom YOU have to endure the rain!
Are you prepared to win? Every win is not as glorious as the pictures. Every win is not picture perfect. Every mistake is not a failure. Do you know what it will take to win? HARDWORK AND DEDICATION! It will take you to understand that the storm will not last forever. Just because it is a storm doesn't mean you have to die. There are people who stop as soon as the storm hits, they don't believe that the rain will stop. Those people are faithless...you have been warned that you need to prepare if you are not preparing for YOUR OWN life why do you think somebody else will. The harvest is for you... How many storms have you seen in your lifetime? You have lived through enough to understand that life just keeps on going and the sun eventually comes out. Also, you learn every storm is different but YOU it is all about you. #sendtherain
I am not worried about the storm, I have prepared for the storm.
“Here’s the lesson: Use your worldly resources to benefit others and make friends. Then, when your earthly possessions are gone, they will welcome you to an eternal home. “If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones. But if you are dishonest in little things, you won’t be honest with greater responsibilities.
And if you are not faithful with other people’s things, why should you be trusted with things of your own? “No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”
Then he said to them, “You like to appear righteous in public, but God knows your hearts. What this world honors is detestable in the sight of God.”
Luke 16:9-10, 12-13, 15 NLT
I am going with this rain/storm metaphor because there is something about the rain and natural disasters that have to be synonymous with real natural life. See God is not a man without a sense of humor. Have you ever seen a storm so huge and destructive and then all of sudden a rainbow comes out! You cannot tell me that problems wont end. Storms destroy homes and then the sun comes out... Tuh...storms destroy lifes and then the sun comes out....the storms will happen....bad things will happen...BUT the sun has to come out! You will come out of the storm! #sendtherain!
