TITLE: Giant

I love old testament stories. This piece is a little bit true story and a little bit old testament.
Doing everything right all the time just isnít possible. Being a Christian doesnít mean being perfect, and I know that for a fact.

Rent was over due and we didnít have any of the money. We had bills that we werenít able to pay. My older three kids and my husband Markís son were all coming over for the next six days. We didnít have much food for them. We had our own business, sign painting, but there was no work in sight. Mark was feeling tired all the time. He was also having bad headaches and swelling in his legs. He needed to see a doctor but we had no insurance.

Our son, Elijah was just a baby, and he had just gotten over a cold. My mom and Dad babysat when we had work and my mom picked up the cold from Elijah. She asked me to keep Elijah at home next time he gets sick because it was much harder for her to get over a cold because of her age.

Markís daughter, Melody, was grown and she had two kids of her own. They just moved into a new place and they didnít have any heat. Her kids were sick and she asked if she could stay with us for the weekend. I was afraid Elijah would get sick again and we wouldnít be able to leave him with my parents if we did get any work. Our problems were giant in proportion.

I was feeling overwhelmed. I picked up my Bible and read about Moses and the promised land in Deuteronomy. I could see right away that I was behaving like the Israelites behaved after spying out the land that God had promised them. God gave the land to his people but he never said that getting into it would be easy.

Nephilim, mighty men, or giants were living in the land. With the exception of Joshua and Caleb, the Israelites complained and cried out. They said that they would rather go back to Egypt then to follow God into that promised land. God led them with a pillar of fire in the night and a pillar of clouds during the day. They saw the red sea opened and God dried it so they could walk across it. The Israelites saw so many miracles, but when they came up against a giant problem, they forgot the past wonders and they focused on that problem before them. Except for Joshua and Caleb, They didnít make it into the land of milk and honey.

I am no better. God has given me so many promises, Iíve also seen so many wonderful things that God has already done for me and what do I focus on, the giant problems before me! If I want that promised land, then Iím going to have to change my focus. I am going to have to trust God and that doesnít mean giving up! I have to stand boldly, walk boldly and enter and face those giants, boldly!
