"I Quit!"

Quitting, Jesus didn't quit, perservere, Luke 22:41-44
“I Quit!”   

Ever thought it? Said it? Did it?

I have.

Sometimes things just get so hard, so messy, so confusing. Sometimes it seems like God isn’t reigning in our lives, our world, or even in heaven. 

When I can't see God’s hand in life's problems, I feel like quitting. I feel like He's asking the “impossible” of me.

Then I think of Jesus.

He felt and thought of quitting. He even talked with His Father about it: “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me.”

But He didn't stop there. He went on to say:
yet not my will, but yours be done.” Luke 22:41-44

He didn’t quit but chose to bring life, clarity, truth, and hope.

He didn’t quit and I was saved…and so were you.

I’m so glad He didn’t quit. I’m so glad He chose to do God’s will.

Are you going through something “impossible” right now?
Choose to do God's will. 
Don’t quit.

Mark 14:36 in quotes.

  2. You do not know how much I needed to read this today! Sometimes it seems like "life" happens all at once and then there is too much to think about. My brain is just not large enough to be able to handle all the thoughts, feelings, decisions, temptations, negativity all at once and I do feel like quitting. Thanks for the encouragement, Gail! Love your wisdom and insight!
