Got Giants? Get God.

While staring at the ceiling a few nights ago, tears running down the sides of my face, I reminded God how ill-equipped I am to fight the giant that looms before me. He reminded me of young David, a slingshot and one smooth stone.

"Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee." - Isaiah 41:10

  2. I am lifting you up in prayer today for the giant you are facing. I have a few myself that bring me to tears and Isaiah 41;10 is one of the verses I rely on to get me through. max Lucado has a great book out called Facing Your Giants. Another great one is Fearless. They are giving me courage on my journey too....
    God bless you on yours. We are not alone!!!!!!!!!!
    A friend gave me this paraphrase of Philippians 4;13 "I can do all things through Christ who continually POURS His strength into me." Amen and Amen....
