Giants tower over us in our lives every day in different forms- physically, intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually. They can be as large as guilt and shame or as tall as stress and pain. Even the small moments that might seem insignificant at first, form together and hang over us in the air. Eventually, they can begin to weigh down on us like a heavy fog.
We do not have to be defeated by those giants though. When those giants seem larger than we can bear- God will be towering above them; if we look up to Him. When those giants pound us down into this world- God will be there to pull us out; if we reach out to Him.
David proclaims this to Goliath in 1 Samuel 17:45-46:
“You come against me with sword, spear, and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies -The God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. Today the Lord will conquer you…”
After I was baptized again as an adult, I came to realize more than ever that I need to depend on God… Every Moment Of Every Day. I cannot do it on my own no matter how hard I try.
Although I am still called by my real name, I have a new pen name in Christ, where I am called as a writer, on a mission to inspire others beyond the walls of my classroom. This pen name is a simple reminder to me and my mission to motivate others about life & learning and to help them come to know that they can put their trust in God…
Every Moment Of Every Day
