My church is doing a series about the fighter. It’s all about overcoming adversity and the strength of the person within it’s great to know that the bible is still relevant today. The man that was referenced was a Gideon from the book of Judges. The story is essentially about a man who had lost everything including his fight. It’s interesting to note that everyone has trials like these. The idea of a trial, or crucible, has prevailed literature from the greatest novels to the most intriguing plays. Everyone in every walk of life can relate to a horrific experience that tested them to the fullest. I find strength from my marriage. My husbandand I have been together since high school; I was 17 when we met. We’ve been through just about everything together and there is nothing we couldn’t overcome; he’s my best friend. Some people, however, are not as lucky. They may feel as though they are the lone ranger when it comes to all the adversity that life will throw your way. Regardless of the person a belief in something can be the tipping point to sway the odds in your favor. There once was a movie that said, “It’s not about the size of the dog in the fight it’s about the size of the fight in the dog.” Nothing could ever be truer. There are fighters and there are those you tap out. The only difference between the two is that one continues to fight while the other simply stops.
