Just shared a moment with Eric Marienthal, Oscar Seaton and Chuck Loeb on the show today…they are humble like that, definitely looking forward to watching them live this pre-independence and take pictures 🙂
It’s too early in the day for me to unravel as much as I would towards sunset, however, I will let you in on the frustrations that come from being a single lady like myself, receiving all this attention from a fine young gentleman…so we get talking and everything is on cue, until it occurs to me, wait hun, you barely know this guy. Whatever happened to asking about their history? And the possibility of them being married to someone else that is a long way from here? Well that’s because I selfishly choose to enjoy the time at the moment and reserve the questions for another time when we’ll meet.
till next time,
easy does it 🙂
When it comes to giant-problems
‘A champion went out from the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath.’ 1 Samuel 17:4
When it comes to giant-problems: 1) Their size can intimidate you. And it doesn’t help when everybody around you, including your leader, is running for cover. This is when you need to recall the victories of your past: Red Sea-sized ones, Jericho Wall-sized ones. How big is your God?
2) Their words can cause you to doubt. ‘When Saul and all Israel heard these words of the Philistine, they were…greatly afraid’ (1 Samuel 17:11 NKJV). Words like, ‘the tumour’s malignant,’ ‘the company’s down-sizing,’ ‘I don’t love you any more,’ ‘our child is hooked on drugs,’ ‘the bank is foreclosing.’ How do you handle such words? By turning to the living, life-changing Word of God which transcends all circumstances and trumps all opinions. ‘The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever’ (Isaiah 40:8 NKJV).
3) There is an ‘opening,’ look for it. It was said Goliath could throw his spear half the length of a football field, so that’s probably how far David was from him. Furthermore, Goliath had body armour protecting him from head to toe, except for a small opening between his eyes and his forehead. That’s what David aimed for. There’s a lesson here. When you ask God for a solution, it may come as a small opening rather than the size of half a football field! When He shows it to you, trust Him to get you through it. God’s response to you is not designed to increase your sense of comfort, but to build your confidence in Him. That way you’ll not only be able to handle this giant, but the ones waiting for you in the future.
