Facing the Giants in our Lives!

Facing the Giants in our Lives by Rebecca Maloney

We all have giants in our lives that are hard to face and overcome. Some of our giants are scary to everyone and others of our giants are only scary to us. It reminds me of one of my favorite quotes, “Be kinder than necessary because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle”. ― J.M. Barrie.
Having heard the Bible story of David and Goliath many years ago, I recall thinking well that is all fine and dandy – but we don’t have giants today so there isn’t much for me to use in this story. (I am pretty sure God laughs out loud at me sometimes!)
Then I walked thru one of hardest times in my life. I did not walk through it alone. God held my hand and changed my world. But it didn’t happen overnight. The incident was over in a few hours, but the transformation is still ongoing! In this transformation my eyes were opened to the many giants in my life! I have been grateful to have God guiding my path and winning the battles.
My giant in life is seeking medical help from a Doctor. It seems silly. It does not seem like much of a ‘battle’. But for me it is a giant. It is helping me remain humble and compassionate to other people’s giants. This too shall pass I remind myself. God is looking after me in all ways! He is looking after you too! We are His beloved children and He wants to slay our giants with us! So let’s put on our armour and seek God. Pray for wisdom, courage and strength to face your giant. Overcome your giant today!
Thank you God for strengthening us, for guiding us and forgiving us! AMEN
