Why are you really giving up? Why are you willing to give up? Do you still believe in what you’re fighting for? Does it still hold the same value? Is it worth it to you?

So many times we give up because we are tired. Sometimes we give up because we feel it’s a fight we could never win. Some times we give up because someone told us we couldn’t win the fight. Now “that” is unacceptable.  Don’t allow someone to determine what you should fight for!

Now sometimes, we give up because we don’t believe in what we were fighting for any more. The things we once would have died for, now we don’t blink our eyes at or give a second thought.  They just don’t serve us the same way.  Guess what?  It’s okay!!

Each day we grow and as we grow, our values change. The things we value changes. We begin to see things from a different perspective. We learn to choose which “battles” we are willing to fight. We realize things just aren’t as important as they once were.

No longer am I overly concerned with having a “model’s body”.  Now, I just want to be healthy and not have aches or pains.

No longer am I concerned if the towels are folded correctly. Now, I’m just happy if we have clean towels.

It no longer sends me in to an anxiety attack when everything isn’t in the right place. Now, I’m just grateful for the things I have and they are in good working condition.

I no longer hold onto stuff in fear that one day I will need it.  If I haven’t used it in the last twelve months, I’m probably not going to use it later. So out the door it goes.

You see stuff just don’t mean the same to me anymore.  I’m more moved by making a difference in someone’s life. I’m more excited about seeing a woman realize her self-worth. When a person grabs hold to their purpose and develop a plan of action, it makes me want to dance.

The fight to be accepted by people, is no longer an interest me.  The fight to be right? Nope, I will not debate with you about my beliefs. What’s better? It’s all up to the person and what they believe. You see I choose my battles. I fight with everything I got but you better believe it has to be for a good cause. Not just because the next person is fighting.

So if you are giving up because you realize the fight just is not important enough to occupy your time. Or if you are giving in because you have something better to fight for. Then by all means throw in the towel, strap up and fight for what really matters to you.  But if you are giving in because you feel defeated and don’t feel you can win.  Stop in your tracks!!

It is the enemy’s job to make you feel inadequate. It’s his job to make you doubt your abilities. He gets excited when your desires become more of a burden than a goal.

But the Bible sayslive and not die

  • God came that you might have life and life more abundantly!
  • You can do ALL things through Christ that strengthen you!
  • You are more than a conqueror!
  • You are victorious!  You are as winner!

The world says

  • A quitter never wins and a winner never quits.
  • If you can dream it, you can achieve it.
  • Small steps equates to large movements.
  • Opportunities are always available if you seek them.

So regardless of what method of “reality” you use, choose your battles based on your own desires and beliefs but don’t you dare quit because you feel you can not win.  Don’t you dare quit because it seems hard. Don’t you dare throw in the towel because someone told you, you could not achieve it!  Don’t you dare! You are a winner and I believe in you and your VICTORY!!!

Until Next Time,
