Day 26: Goliath.

This is Day 26 of the 31 Days of Small series. 

She has been handed a tremendous weight and she feels the responsibility on her shoulders.  It's overwhelming and it's huge and she can feel the pressure as she rises to the occasion.  She feels small and unsure--can she handle this job?  Can she be trusted with this opportunity?  Shouldn't someone else step up to the plate--can she really be the one destined for this time?  

Mary and Esther and all those ladies.  
Lesley and Jill and all those ladies.  
And all those men, too.

Sometimes those big, crushing things are the ones that teach us how to fly.  When we recognize the importance and the severity of the situation--sometimes it's the very thing that lets us stand tall in our smallness.  Those jobs.  Those opportunities.  Those diseases.  Those failures.  Those chances.  

You have to recognize your Goliath.  

You have to give it a name and you have to respect it. 

You can be small and see the situation for what it is.

But that doesn't mean you have to take it lying down.
