Today……….do you have something on your mind that you need to give up to God?  Is there something you are worrying about?

Psalm 56:11 says “In God I trust; I will not be afraid.  What can man do to me?”

I’ve had a rough couple of weeks.  I was praying about whether to quit something for which I have responsibility.  I have never quit anything, but emotionally I’m not sure if I can continue the stress of this situation.  I have prayed and prayed for direction.

I spent many days worrying about this situation and what I should do.  I just felt like I wasn’t getting an answer.  I would feel like I was supposed to continue, then I’d wake up and feel like it was time to throw in the towel.

One morning on the way to work I was praying about the situation.  When I finished praying, I turned on the radio and Mandisa’s song “Overcomer” was playing……but not the whole song, just the last two lines – “Don’t quit, don’t give up, you’re an Overcomer.  Don’t quit, don’t give up, you’re an Overcomer.”  I smiled and said “okay God.  I won’t quit.”

But honestly, I kept thinking that was way too simple.  Maybe it was just a coincidence.

I went to lunch with a friend and was telling her the story and kind of taking it lightly.  When I got back in the car and turned on the radio, the exact same song at the exact same spot was on the radio.  I had to call my friend and tell her that I didn’t think it was a coincidence!

The next night, I went to a meeting for an upcoming women’s conference and the leader of the conference unzipped her jacket and her shirt just said “Don’t Quit!”

What else do I need…………God doesn’t do coincidence.  He is direct and He is intentional.  No matter how hard it is and no matter what man does to me, I can’t quit……….because I’m an Overcomer………and God clearly told me so!!
