I Give Up Study Guide

"But I don't want to surrender!" 

Have you ever felt these words bubbling up so deep inside you want to shout?

It's normal. It's natural. It's human to want to be in control.

But when your need for peace surpasses your desire for control, God - who truly uses all things for our good - demonstrates how much we can trust him.

In this five-session Bible study (designed for use with the DVD), recording artist and bestselling author Laura Story demonstrates the ironic joy found when we surrender it all to God and simply give up.

Newlywed Laura Story thought she had control over the great life ahead of her. After all, she followed Jesus and had a promising new job as a worship leader. Why would God not want to fulfill her dreams? But when Laura and her husband, Martin, faced a brain tumor, infertility, and a son’s birth defect, she realized she’d been looking for a happiness that comes from circumstances, rather than a deeper joy that comes from God. Again and again, Laura had to surrender her vision for her life so she could embrace God’s vision. And again and again she learned that even in the midst of shattered dreams, God’s plan brought greater joy than she could have imagined.

Sessions include:

  • What Is Surrender Anyway?
  • God's Character Matters
  • Giving In and Up
  • Being Transformed
  • The Ripple Effect of Surrender

As Laura writes, she no longer wants to be in control of her life. She wants to be rooted in the God who is in control. I Give Up will help you Discover a deeper life of worship, a fuller life of joy, and a freer life of true surrender as you open your hands to God. And give up.
