Conquering the Goliath of Grief

facing-your-giants-sermon-title-slideGoliath was a Philistine giant that bullied the Israelites  every chance he got. He taunted and tormented them. See Goliath thought that because of his size that he was undefeated and that no one could take him down. He found pleasure in harassing the town of Israel and causing misery amongst the people. He didn’t realize that God was raising up a little shepherd boy that would not only take him down but also one day become King. David was not as big as Goliath. He may not have been as strong nor as smart as him either but the two things that David had that Goliath did not was courage and faith in God. David knew that the same God who had delivered him from the claws of a bear in the wilderness would also deliver him from the hands of this giant and give him the victory.

I often times look at grief as the Goliath in my life. I think it’s safe to say that I am not the only one. It can be a bully at times. It’s an unhappy feeling that leaves you feeling anguished and desolate. In other words it causes a lot of misery just like Goliath did to the Israelites. Just when you begin to feel a little better, you think YES!, I’m getting through this, that feeling of grief ( sadness, fear, despair ) tries to come right back with the attempt to steal your joy; but like David I’m reassured in those times because I know that the same God that was with me in the beginning of this journey is still with me now and he will see me through to Victory and he’ll do the same for you against the giants in your life!

Hi everyone. I'm Nekitta Sutton. I've experienced major disappointments, setbacks and losses in life. During those times I had to hold on to my faith and find strength to continue on. Through the trials and sufferings I realized that I was more than a conqueror, I was a survivor. I began to gain knowledge and grow as a person by activating my faith and reading God's word. My hopes are to encourage the masses so that you will be able to regain control over your life and start living again as well. It takes a lot of work and can sometimes be painful but I do know that it's possible and well worth it.
