Facing the Giants in Your Life by Samuel Burgess

Facing the Giants in Your Life

1 Samuel 17

Introduction:

Joshua J. Marine: ''Challenges are what make life interesting; overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.''

Have you thought about the fact that Giants Are Real! ''Giants'' are not some figment of your imagination. ''Giants'' are not something that you dream up. ''Giants'' are problems, pressures, pains, and persecutions we will have to face from time to time in our lives.
