Giving up control in little ways is uncomfortable for everyone. Giving up control in major facets of our daily life is the last thing any of us wants to do. But letting go of control trusting God over your entire life, that's called surrender---and whether we like it or not, it's the one sure way to experience abundant life.
About the Book
Laura Story's husband, Martin, was diagnosed with a brain tumor early in their marriage. In a moment their life plans changed drastically. After wondering about their ability to be parents and a struggle with infertility, Laura gave birth to three children, including twin boys, in three years' time. Then a sonogram at thirty-seven weeks revealed an unexpected issue with their fourth child.
No life is without trouble, but when you face one challenging situation after another, your days can begin to feel desperately hopeless. But for God . . . who truly uses all things for our good, every circumstance can become a perfect opportunity to demonstrate 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.
In I Give Up, Laura uses her story to show why surrender to God is important and how we can go about doing it. She shares how surrendering expectations is not a step-by-step process but a willful decision to wait on God, trusting that He and His word are true.
In this six-session study (DVD/digital downloads sold separately) she explains:
- why surrender is a good thing
- what we surrender exactly
- whom we surrender to
- how we surrender
- how our surrender affects the lives of others
- what we gain when we let go
Though surrender sometimes flies in the face of our instincts, hopes, and dreams, it's 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.
