Day 182

Thursday 30th June 2016

Every other Thursday I attend a ladies group, we sit, drink tea and chat, there is usually a theme. Today we spoke on a very well known story in the bible – David and Goliath. 

David was a boy who worked in the fields and Goliath was a giant who fought on the battle field. Goliath had never lost a fight and he challenged David’s people to a fight. David was the only one brave enough to fight Goliath. He put his trust in God to defeat him. He picked up 5 stones put one in his sling shot and hit Goliath right between the eyes. Then David killed him. 


We then talked about our own personal Giants and how we can overcome them.

I am 5’9″ I would say I am quite tall for a woman. I used to say when I was 4 and half stone heavier that I am tall both ways standing up and also when I was lying down ( because my stomach was so big). 

If you think of a giant they are so much bigger than you are. To defeat one seems very overwhelming. I have found though that this year I am overcoming my own personal Giants. The Giants in my head. 

There was a theme that emerged today. As well as the talk in the morning about Giants there was also a song that came on the radio today called ‘Every giant will fall’ by Rend Collective. Sometime later there was also a program on the radio about Giants. 

I think God is trying to tell me something – that I need to keep fighting those Giants and eventually they fall and I succeed. 

Little messages like this show me I can do it and that I will overcome.
