When do you quit?
When do you throw in the towel and say,"I've had it. I can't do anything else. I'm done. It's over. I'm history."
My husband has an old tablet from his former company that says, "Failure is not an option." The company is now almost bankrupt.
How do you know when it's time to stop what you're doing? To stop going through the motions?
Of course, there are always those clear-cut situations that demand you stop for your own safety.
But what about those others--and the times when you want to quit but you don't know what to do next then?
Think about your writing. How many rejections do you take before you decide you stop sending?
Is there a definitive number you can put on it?
I don't think so. Not if you love to write as I do.
Instead we keep pressing on--toward the goal. Do we have another choice?
The same goes for our lives. I have days when I think I can't do any more than I am doing to give us a good life. When it all crashes down in front of me, I want to give up. But I can't. That's not what God expects from me.
Keep running the race. He promises us it's worth it in the end.
