Giving up is incompatible with my faith.
I’d easily reject the notion of its existence except
I see folks doing so all around me
seems all the time.
I become confused.
Giving up is so beneath my realm of thinking,
I had to look up the words to even write this piece.
When I did so, my stomach became full of disgust.
I imagined burning my dictionary except that I need and
love it so.
Giving up is poles apart from anywhere I fancy myself.
It is absurd to a spiritually ambitious child of God
who knows that He has plans for her,
those plans were laid out and perfected
even before the earth was warm.
All I have to do is show up and obey.
Allowing the option of giving up
creates discord in my universe.
It has no place.
It is a spot of nothingness surrounded by an abundance of
blessings the Lord is waiting to bestow upon me.
That spot must be obliterated.
Giving up doesn’t apply to situations that are unnatural or
wrong in the first place.
It does not apply to those things that are against God’s will,
those very things that our endurance and abilities are
meant to change.
It is not the same as rearranging, resting, reevaluating,
reconstructing or reconstituting.
It is unlike formulating a new route
when the path is blocked.
It is unlike designing a new key when there is no other
door to that particular goal.
It is not abandoning a mission that would otherwise lead
you from God’s designs.
Giving up? It is bullshit and is different from anything I ever
want to know.
