My boys, husband and son, went out ice fishing this morning. What a glorious day today. Not a cloud in the sky and no wind and 42 degrees. Now for Minnesota standards that is a regular heat wave where coats, hats and mittens will stay in the car. Greta and I made our way to church this morning. I heard a wonderful message that I think can be applicable to all of us in some part of our life.
What Is Our Mountain or our Giant??
We all have obstacles in this life. If you don’t have something that is testing us I believe your head is in the sand and not looking at life head on. We may have trouble in relationships, financial, health, children, jobs…the list is endless. These are our Mountains or Giants in life. David faced Goliath that was his literal giant. He kept his eyes on God and he was able to defeat that giant right between his eyes. We have a God that will help us through all these trials of life. He holds our hand or he holds us if we need the support. He will help us pass threw these mountain passes and by these Giant armies that look like they are out for us. We need to keep our eyes on Christ and not the trials that life throw at us. God will reach out grab our hand and lead us threw this thing called life.
I have learned numerous times in life that sometimes it takes falling to your knees and remembering that we aren’t in this alone and we need reinforcement to help. I need help with my marriage, children, job, health and all of life. I don’t have the answers.
I pray I can keep my eye on God and reach my hand out and ask for help. That is the way I will defeat my giant and cross my mountain.
I hope you all can start this week with peace and knowledge that we have an Awesome God and he Reigns from Heaven to Earth.
