Facing Your Giants

As I watched the DVD – Facing Your Giants, I wondered how many are plagued
by giants that are tearing them to pieces on a daily basis. When do we,
myself included, say that’s enough!! The Lord tells us that He has placed
an open window for us who believe to walk through to escape. How in the
world do we do that?

According to the movie we need to change our attitude. We are children of
God. We should not go around with a defeated attitude. We only poison
ourselves and those around us. With a wrong attitude we poison what God
wants to do in our lives to effect others for Him.
Lord may all the DAILY LILIES be strong. May they be filled with the
strength of the Lord this night. May they each have attitudes that are
positive, joyful, and thankful to you. May they NEVER give up. May the
giants in their lives fall and may they dance the dance of healing and joy.
May they joy in loving each other. May they joy in working together and
give it all they have for You Jesus. You are more than worthy of the fight.
We are GOD’S TEAM.

What market place does God have you in to effect people for Him? When the
giants come to keep you from doing what God has given you to do, fight hard,
plan hard, fight even pushing when you think you can not give anymore.
Don’t let your giants overcome you and get cocky in their battle plan to
ruin your lives. Reunit with God’s team throwing yourselves in an all out
focus to outsmart the giants through organization and focus. Give it your
best and leave it to God to move the giants from your lives. Say to
yourselves, I’m NOT second rate! Nothing is impossible when My God is on my
side – nothing!!

I am a novice writer and painter who loves to be creative. I love singing but can't sing without a hymnal, except for children's songs. I love to make up my own songs and love the old hymns. I love to garden and got that love from my Mom and Dad who taught be everything I know from planting to harvesting to canning. I'm happy gardening, walking with my pug, JD Sir Winston Churchill, painting, and crafting. I love to spend Saturday's sitting in my rocker going through a bible study. I love working with elementary school aged children and seeing them use their creative gifts. I have taught Sunday school for a number of years and taught in the public schools for 18 years. I might say I'm retired but I spend most of my time subbing and enjoy it immensely. The kids spark my own creativeness.

  1. Tammy (Needles) recommended this movie to me. Gary and I were able to see it in the theater just before Christmas. We loved it as well. It does make one realize that the hard times come just like the good times but it is comfort and joy to have a ‘team’ to share both with.

    I heard that you Rena watched this movie twice in one day. Is that right?

  2. Max Lucado’s excellent book/study FACING YOUR GIANTS gives some timely, practical approaches for knocking off the giants that come to challenge our faith and our Spiritual stamina and steal our victory, every waking moment. He gives Biblical, spiritual counsel from the events recorded in the Scriptures on a myriad of testings, trials and tribulations, like, “Raging Sauls (1Samuel 18); Unspeakable Grief (2Sam 1); Colossal Collapses (2Sam.12) ; Dashed Hopes (1Chronicles.28) ; Dry Seasons (1Sam.21); Family Matters (2Sam. 15). These are titles of just a few life crises he covers in his book. His final chapter, of course, is entitled, Taking Goliath Down!
    This is a must read for encouragement and exhortation.
    This read helps in answering the questions like the one posed to us this morning ,in service, by Sara when she asked, “Where is the victory, Church?”

  3. I noticed in Rena’s blog that it said to outsmart the giants through organization and focus. The synonym for organize is order. And as I understood Sara, I believe she pointed out this am that God is a God of order and if we are out of order in our lives at work, in our homes, in our church, etc. there will be no victory.
    Therefore if we stay orderly and timely to obey His commandments, we receive the blessing. If we get out of focus and miss doing His will timely and orderly, we get no blessing or victory and the giant looms larger than life.

  4. Yes I saw this movie twice in one night. It touched me so I could not walk away without hearing it again. I pray that many out their will get a hold of this DVD from youth groups to men and women groups. What awesome impact it would make on America if we would follow by example what they did. As an intercessor I was impressed with the older man in the movie who daily walked up and down the halls and prayed over every locker. This may or may not be feasible in schools today but nothing is prohibiting Americans from calling out the name of young people in their homes, offices, and where ever else they pray. Lord we call forth our youth this day to become men and women of God who will effect change in the market place. May they stand up for you and stand and withstand as the days come and go. May they be instruments for you. Yes Lord may God and all His angels stand as GOD’S Kids advance for the GOAL of becoming more and more like Jesus.
    I also loved seeing the young coach in the field with his hands extended to the Lord. When tough situations come, God’s kids reach up. What is not seen is that God reaches down with a hug of HOPE.
