Sometimes life just doesn't make sense.  Your dreams are shattered, you're confused about the future and it seems you have no purpose on the earth.

The more you think about the failures of the past the more you become fearful of the future!

When fear is the motivator the more hopeless you become.  With no hope there's no faith for a better tomorrow.  

How about that unexplained tragedy that's broken your heart and you can't seem to find all the pieces to put your heart back together.  

Over and over again you wonder what life holds and where you're going. 

Are you searching for answers?  Well, quitting is not an option but giving up might be the thing to do.

Give up trying to explain why the tragedy or failure happened.

Give up searching for answers that might never be answered on this side of eternity.

Give up trying to cast blame on this person or that person and give up blaming yourself.

Give up your attempts to hold everything together in your own strength.

Give up trying to understand what's not understandable.

Give up trying to explain the unexplainable. 

Give up and trust God!  That's right, just trust God!

Trust that God is bigger than your past and He holds your future in His hands.  

Trust God that He can take all that's happened in your life and work it all together for your good. 

Just give up and say "God I trust You!'  Or you might say it this way.   "God, I surrender! Not just part of me but all of me." 

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him and He will make your paths straight."  (Proverbs 3:5,6) 

When you give up you go up with God.  When you surrender all,  God gives you His all!

Quitting is not an option but giving up might be the thing for you to do today.  Trust God, what He's started in you He will finish because He is faithful!

Lay your cares at the foot of the cross of Jesus Christ and pick up the peace of God that passes all understanding.

Oh, and start DREAMING.......AGAIN!
