David and Goliath


Goliath challenged Israel,

 and brought disgrace.

He asked if any man would meet him...

 Face to face!


The men of Israel were scared.  Not this brave!

If they lost…  They’d be the Philistine’s slave!


King Saul asked if anyone would challenge this man!

David accepted.  Knowing this was God’s land!


With a small stone, that he chose from a river bed

He faced Goliath. 

God put the stone into his head.


Down came the giant!  He took a big fall!

He wasn’t so great and mighty,

 after all!


Is there a giant in you life? 

That’s causing you problems?

Why not come to Jesus!  And let him solve them!


 Whatever your “giant’ might be!

With God’s help… 

You can have the victory!


Whatever “giant” there is…

 All must bow at Jesus’ name!

Won’t you stand up!

 God’s message, do proclaim!


The enemy’s already defeated! 

Victory is here!

As God is lifted up! 

Your enemies will disappear!

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!
