I Do Not Quit but I Do Surrender

Keep moving

  • Stay Focused
  • Be Disciplined
  • Don’t Quit
  • But Surrender?

When I grasp life with a death grip, I wrestle with

  • Fear—of failure, others and the unknown
  • Doubts—myself, abilities, God, the future
  • Confusion
  • And Isolation

I forget God’s

  • Grace
  • Mercy
  • Goodness
  • Faithfulness
  • Unconditional Love

And how much I need

  • His Power, not my own
  • His Wisdom
  • His Care and Love
  • His Understanding
  • His View of the Future
  • And His Promises

So, I let go and in letting go, I find

  • Serenity
  • Peace
  • Refuge
  • Safety
  • Comfort
  • And Reassurance

I do not quit but I do surrender

  • And keep on trusting
  • That in the end
  • I shall be satisfied
  • All will be well
  • At the proper time
  • For my good
  • And His Glory


As a friend wrote, “In surrendering one moves from the focus on oneself,  moving from success to significance.”
