Facing My Giants
Formed itself, Often my paintings act as incubators for something even greater, my sculptures. My Sculptures are birth from my painting so they are usually named the same as the paintings that they are created from. "Facing My Giants" was recreated from a painting entitled "It Remains In the Wind”. In the painting ‘It Remains In the Wind” the young women is looking back at her past. However when I began creating the bronze relief for ‘It Remains In the Wind” the young women in the bronze piece decide to look forward with her head raised as if to say I no longer want to look behind but ahead. That’s when the piece “Facing My Giants” was born.
Philippians 3:12-14 But one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
“Facing My Giant”, expresses the ability to stand firm in the face of tribulation, when God is your anchor and strength you can withstand any storm.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand
Just as David faced Goliath and defeated him in the Old Testament we are to face the giants of this world by standing firm in the word of God, putting on the armor of God, to be strong in the Lord and the power of his might. Not being shaken knowing that Gods is in full control.
