Gold Medal Moments

The moment when you realize all your hard work has paid off.  There's a lot of those moments on display right now during The Olympics.

I got a big kick out of the moment last night when Missy Franklin, 17, an American Swimmer, won a Gold Medal.  She told a reporter, "Just seeing my parents...it means the world that they could be here and I know that God has given me so much, and for them to be here, watch, and be with me and experience it, is so much."

In that moment, her hard work paid off and her parent's obvious dedication to teaching her about a relationship with God paid off as well.  It seems like Missy’s parents should get a gold medal too!

I heard from a K-LOVE listener, Diane, about a "Gold Medal Moment" she had recently too...

“My 22 year old daughter, who we struggled with her all through junior high making bad decisions, over the last couple years she’s really turned her life around back to Christ.   And she left me a note last week, I woke up to it next to my pillow.  It said, “Dear Mom, I want you to know you’ve been prayed for today.”

That note is her gold medal!  Frame it and put it on the mantel!

Tell me about your "Gold Medal Moment"...
