There are giants in all of our lives. The Giants that we face take many forms. For some it is declining health. For others it may be the economy; lost jobs, failed mortgages or depreciated savings. For others it may be big bgovernment or political pressures and fears. For others it may be relationship conflicts or concerns regarding your children. For some it may be obtaining an education, finding a job, grieving the loss of a loved one or finding a new relationship.
Everyone has Giants in their lives. Remember the opening scene from the movie "Troy". Achilles faced the Giant Thessalonian. Everyone feared the Giant except for Achilles. Remember the conversation with a small child, who questioned the wisdom of fighting the Giant. The child was afraid to face the Giant and Achilles responded "that is why you will not be remembered".
Remember the story about David and Goliath. Even when we feel that we can't defeat the Giants in our life, it is important to stand up and fight. The Giants may be overwhelming. We may think that what we can do is insignificant. Even though we feel beaten down, we must not quit and give up. We must rise up from our doubts, fears and anxiety.
We must become stronger than the Giants in our lives. We must stand up and face our problems and find solutions. We must leave a successful legacy for ourselves, family and society. We must do whatever is necessary to take care of ourselves and defeat the Giants in our lives.
CJ Lee wrote a very interesting commentary regarding Achilles defeat of the Thessalonian Giant. He entitled his post "Live Life without Regrets". CJ realized that problems are really opportunities. He wrote:
"Once in a lifetime opportunities should not be hampered by fear. They should be embraced with positive thinking, will, and determination. This does not ensure that everything will go right every time, but you will certainly live a life without regret, because you were not afraid to pull the trigger. Doing things that will last forever separates you from others, and to do something that will last forever is probably the greatest opportunity a human can get."
Defeating the Giants in your life, will not only solve the immediate problems in your life, it will also make you stronger and you will leave a wonderful legacy for those who follow.
