Feel Like Quitting? Don’t Give Up!

Feel Like Quitting? Don’t Give Up!

Don’t You Quit!



I am so thankful, by the grace of God, that I held onto my faith in God and His divine inspiration to NOT quit my doctoral journey!

I felt like it so many times, but now I’m on the other side of the finish line dealing with a sense of relief and satisfaction–and a bit of shock–that I really completed that journey three months ago yesterday (on 6/26/2017)!

I’ve been reviewing and recycling older posts, and again came across one that is so timely even several years after I first wrote it!

This one reminds me of a poem entitled, “Don’t You Quit!

The first stanza goes like this:

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,

when the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,

when the funds are low and the debts are high,

and you want to smile, but you have to sigh,

when care is pressing you down a bit–

Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.”


Here’s your inspiration for today!


“No matter how bad the condition of your life or your circumstances, don’t give up! Regain the territory the devil has stolen from you. If necessary, regain it one inch at at a time, always leaning on God’s grace and not on your own ability to get the desired results.

Don’t be a quitter! Don’t have that old ‘give up’ spirit.

Whatever you may be facing or experiencing right now in your life, I am encouraging you to go through it and not give up!

It’s easy to quit–it takes faith to go through with something.”

–Joyce Meyer in “New Day New You”

My Reflections


I know a few people -including myself- who need to hear this regarding difficult or challenging circumstances that really do make you want to quit out of sheer frustration or discouragement! Yet we can’t allow ourselves to be defeated and not achieve our goals. Often the breakthrough is just around the bend!



So What Are YOUR Thoughts?


Are you going through difficulties right now that make you want to give up? (I will certainly pray for you, because I empathize!)


Have you ever experienced a breakthrough at just the right moment, and been surprised how close you came to missing it?

  1. Good ad I e really. There are time we feel like quiting and shouldn’t and there are times it is important to quite – such as if it’s health risk not too.

    We need to know when which is which and be prepared to knuckle down or make that hard decision.

  2. I think we all have felt like quitting at one point or another. Sometimes life gets so hectic there is not enough time to do it all…..We must learn to do a fair amount of work and squeeze in things that we want to do for ourselves. We must find the time….We must not quit….thank you for this beautiful reminder

  3. All this is so true and resonates with so many of us. We all feel like quitting at times. Things become overwhelming. But we need to go on. Well written article.

  4. What I needed to see today.
    “It’s easy to quit – it takes faith to go through with something.”
    Facing some difficult & challenging circumstances these days.
    Thank you my friend.

  5. Thanks for this great post.

    Our default pattern is to give up when confronted with challenges and on at a. However if we must get ahead, and achieve our goals, it is our duty to become more determined, dogged and resilient at the face of difficult times.

    I am inspired by your post.
