Becoming A Giant

“How seldom a man reaches his full stature in quiet times! It is amid bitter experience of opposition and strain; it is in having to contend with beasts at Ephesus, skirting ever and anon the gulf of despair, and being often thrown down and almost buried under avalanches of misfortune, yet never suffered to lose all hope, or to despair of God, but enabled to rise up again and take courage and renew the conflict;–it is amid difficulties of this sort that men rise to their full stature and become giants.” –William Blaikie “Heroes of Israel” p. 411

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
