Have you ever been a room with a dripping faucet? Drip, drip, drip drip, drip. All day all night. It drips. Now imagine that being a drop of rain on your head. You are standing outside, the sky is all set up for a rain shower and all you get is drip, drip, drip, drip, drip.
You are not standing there because you have nothing to do. You’ve received instructions. Stand. Don’t move. When you have done all I have told you to do stand. So there you stand and all you get is drip, drip, drip, drip, drip.
It’s not funny. In fact it is down right irritating. So imagine my surprise this morning, in one of my standing moments (sitting in the hair salon) when I hear the Spirit begin to sing “Raindrops keep falling on my head.”. I told Him promptly, “This is not funny.” But He just kept singing. Zephaniah 3 promises that the Lord with rejoice over us with singing. I didn’t think that was the song He would sing but yet it was quite appropriate.
It falls in line with a principle I have been living out called “The Noah Principle.” It first came to me last year as I planned my second Young Entrepreneurs Symposium for St. Kitts. I mentioned it briefly to the participants but it has become a concept that I am now walking out. This principle forms the foundation for the latter part of my new book on entrepreneurship.
The Spirit’s song was His way of telling me that the rains have begun and its about to pour. Well, here I am. Standing with the raindrops on my head. I think it was Phil Collins from Genesis who sang ‘I wish it would rain down on me.’ Might as well join in and make it a duet.
