A Goliath of a Moutain

It’s funny how we see this Goliath standing in front of us and how our very bones become fear striken.

Psalm 139:13-14 (NKJV)
“For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.”
