But what are you really giving up on? In all of these areas, what are you giving up on? You’re really giving up on God because you’ve asked God to do some things and He hasn’t done them. You’ve asked God to fix some things, and He hasn’t fixed them. You’ve brought some broken things to God and said, “God, can you put this back together?” and it just seems more broken than ever. Really, what you’re giving up on is God. Today we are going to meet a group of people who felt the same way.
All of us have some areas in life where we are tired, maybe a little bit frustrated, where we want to see some progress. It’s just been slow. We feel like giving up. When disappointment, dysfunction, and disillusionment come in life— you start to feel despair.
