Facing The Giant

Facing the Giant

When David heard Goliath bring

God’s name disgrace.

He wondered if any man would

challenge him, face to face.

All the men in Israel were scared,

and not this brave.

For if they lost, they’d be

the Philistines’ slave.

King Saul wondered if anyone

would challenge this man.

David accepted—knowing

this was God’s land.

With a small stone he

chose from a river bed,

He faced Goliath, with God placing

the stone into his head.

Perhaps there’s a GIANT in your

life that’s causing you fits.

Your trust must be in Jesus.

This--you must admit.

Lust, anger, pride—

whatever your giant might be.

Defeating this giant, with God’s help,

will bring you the victory!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
