You certainly have someone that you love among your family or friends who is facing giants right now.
Perhaps they're struggling against disease; maybe they're overcoming an addiction, or facing a personal demon from their past. Some people's giants loom on the horizon with hulking forms that block out the sun for everyone around; other people face invisible behemoths alone.
I'm here to tell you a story about a God who slays giants.
Travel with me to post-World War II Italy and Luxembourg. There I grew up with six brothers under a dying mother and a paralyzed father striving to defeat poverty--while I struggled against my own neurological disorder. Some days I wanted to bury myself away so no one could see my face contort; so no one would feel me kick them under the table when my legs jerked out of control; so no one would watch the black ink sprawl across the paper when I tried to write and my hands disobeyed. Giants like tobacco addiction, disease, and depression dominated my life.
Maybe you've faced seasons like that--seasons where you felt infinitely smaller than the monsters in your closet or the day-to-day disasters that grip everyone now and then. I'd like to share my story with you for those seasons. I'd like to give you a break--transport you to another culture, another place and time, and let you watch Jesus changing lives. The conversations in this story are dramatized stylistically: I don't know exactly what people said during my parents' courtship, for example, or what Michele thought word-for-word when he tried to stop me from smoking. Nevertheless the healings, disasters, and battles in this story are all completely real. I was there; other people were there. I want you to know this so you can find strength to face the giants in your life. I want you to know wild miracles really do happen, and you should never give up.
This is a true story about facing real giants.
This is a true story about how they fall.
I hope you come back from your journey refreshed and encouraged.
