Laura Story | Leigh McLeroy
Binding: Trade Paper
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Walk alongside Grammy Award-winning artist, worship leader, and Bible study teacher Laura Story in her continuing journey of accepting God’s plan for her life and living it out in total surrender.
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. Yet God truly uses all things for our good. When offered up to him, every circumstance can become a perfect opportunity to completely surrender your will to his.
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 four-part study she explains:
*why surrender is a good thing
*whom we surrender to
*how we surrender
*how our surrender affects the lives of others
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 true joy-filled existence in which trust is reasonable, reconciliation is possible, and relationships can heal.
