For about a week, God has been repeating the term “sleeping giants” to me. I know He’s speaking of His spiritual warriors and not the “giants of the land”—a term referring to evil strongholds of any given area (Joshua 17:15). As Christians, we are the true giants.

Rising and shining is still on my mind (see Nov. 5 post), and God is telling me more: Christians "arise and shine" through
I've decided to quit "practice blogging" and make this be the first real post. So, here goes! I'll begin by sharing with you a recent interaction between me and the Lord:
