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.
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.
