Facing the Giants

I know its been a while since my last post, I almost ran out of things to say... Just kidding. I have been thinking the last few weeks about what my next post would be. I purposely by passed the election. I hate getting involved in political discussion, I understand that it is what makes our country so great; that we can have a political opinion. So the one thing that i have to say is that no matter who won or lost, Jesus is still KING. King takes President any day of the week. The person that He wanted in the office is, and he is there for a reason. We just may not know what that reason is.

So on to my next point. I was browsing through Facebook the other day, and a post from one of my favorite movies popped up. Facing the Giants... If you have never seen this movie it is a definite must see. It asked what was my favorite scene of the movie... that got me thinking. There are so many that affected me in a deep way but there is on that truly sticks out in my head as a punch to the gut.

The movie is about a high school football team that has had a loosing record for the past few years. The coach was having problems at home and was in risk of loosing his job, when he turned to God. At that point the team starts to do better. In a pep talk before one of the games he told his players that they where going to praise God if they won or lost...

Why cant we do that? Why is it that we either talk to him if things are good, or if things are bad? Why is it that when thing go bad, I pray to him to change things? Lets step back and take a good look at the situation. When we are praying for him to change things it shows that you are putting your faith that he will change them. When your praising him when things look their darkest, that is when you show your fortitude. You looked darkness in the eye and punched it in the mouth, saying give me your best shot... no matter what happens you will beat me. Its at that point when you can take what the world has givin you and say "I stood strong when the Giants were bearing down, and I will praise him win or loose."

Thanks for reading and I hope to see you next time in Life in the Cheap Seats
