“Where Champions Are Made” – Words Of Wisdom From Olympic Gold Medalist Gabby Douglas

“Hard days are the best because that’s where champions are made.” Olympic Gymnastic Gold Medalist Gabby Douglas shares a brilliant truth from her experience training for the Olympics.

Are you thankful for the hard days? I don’t know about you, but that is a difficult thing for me to do. But the hard times make us stronger.

Zechariah 13:9

New American Standard Bible (NASB)

“And I will bring the third part through the fire,

Refine them as silver is refined,

And test them as gold is tested.

They will call on My name,

And I will answer them;

I will say, ‘They are My people,’

And they will say, ‘The Lord is my God.’”

The next time you are faced with difficulty, remember you are being refined. Say to yourself, “The hard days are the best because that’s where champions are made.”

    This is such a great reminder for me as we’ve had a difficult couple of weeks. God must be refining me. We are caring for our two granddaughters during their moms absence while our son travels with his job. It’s back to diapers, temper tantrums, and disciplining children with live and logic. My mind and body are exhausted. So your post couldn’t have come at a better time. Got a little misty eyed.
    The Champion.
