Earthly Giants

We all have our own earthly giants,
Challenges we must meet.
Obstacles meant to be overcome
Or our lives are full of defeat.

We do not begin with "Goliath"
But first fight the lion and bear,
For confidence comes with each new success
And faith is the armor we wear.

With every success there's new battles,
And when we "Goliath" must meet,
The past has prepared us, for God has not spared us,
Our giants will lay at our feet.
