I Give Up!
Perhaps you have a host of friends or even family (a foreign concept to some) going through tough times. It feels so lame to offer prayer when in your heart, you have already determined the end result. Nothing is left now but to worry about it all and be depressed over the impending doom and fate we will all and our children will some day suffer. What can we do? Stop trying to take control!
My wife has a t-shirt that she will not wear out of the house that reads, "There is a God and you are not Him." This message couldn't be anymore true but we constantly think we can handle things on our own. We work our fingers to the bone pursuing things that will be put on a shelf or be destroyed in future years. We, We, We, I, I, I, has become a way of life for most of us. What am I getting at with all of this? Nothing, not I but God is in control and until we learn to be the backup vocals and not the lead singer, our band will never sound good.
So don't wait till you get to the end of yourself. Give up now! I give up God, I will just take care of the background stuff and realize that you are in control of this world and there is nothing I can do about it but accept you are in control. I give up.
