But I dont want to surrender!
Its normal. Its natural. Its human to want to be in control.
But when your need for peace surpasses your desire for control, Godwho truly uses all things for our gooddemonstrates how much we can trust him. The very act of completely surrendering our will to his can become the one act that will change your life forever.
Recording artist and bestselling author Laura Story demonstrates the ironic joy found when we surrender it all to God and simply give up. Surrendering expectations and power is not a step-by-step process but a willful, daily decision worth every single ounce of effort.
In I Give Up, we learn what surrender is not:
- Surrender does not come naturally to any of us.
- Surrender is not acquiescing to an enemy who wants to dominate us.
- Surrender is not "My will be done!"
- Surrender makes it impossible for you, and the people around you, to stay the same.
Though surrender sometimes flies in the face of our instincts, hopes, and dreams, its never without benefit. A surrendered life includes the surprise of a truly full and satisfying existence where trust is reasonable, reconciliation is possible, and relationships can heal.

- Gods Character Matters
- Giving In and Up
