Jenn's Jams - Calling Glory - Don't Give Up

There are days that we all feel like giving up. Don't tell me that you don't have those days because I know you'll be lying to me - and that's not very nice. There are days where for one reason or another, we feel as if we've been pushed to the very brink of our existence and the tiniest tap is going to push us right over the edge. For various reasons, I felt that way last weekend. I was tired, I was grumpy, my husband had done something to tick me off and I had just had enough. On my way home from work, this song came on the radio and I lost it - the whole ugly cry thing, tears and snot and all went down in the driver's seat. I know it wasn't' pretty.

Wanna know the good news? Hope is on the way! We can't give up, won't give up because - God has promised in all His goodness that he would never, ever, ever give us more than what we can handle.


No matter how hard it may seem, no matter the weight of what we feel like we've got piled onto our backs, the load will be lifted soon enough and if we allow Him, peace and comfort will enter our lives like a wave. And as the tide goes out, all that's been dragging us down will go with it.

The thought alone is enough to make my dark and stormy days feel a little brighter. I want to extend my friendship, my prayers, my support and all my love to any of you out there that need it right now. Seriously. I love people, I love talking to people and getting to know people. If you ever just want to talk, rant, share blessings with one another - email me. I will answer you fairly quickly and while I may not be much, I will try my darnedest to at least be a friend.

My email:

Now listen, reflect and love this song as much as I do.


This time your heart said it's had enough 
Sick and tired of everything that's so messed up 
You don't wanna move on just playing games 
Praying hard somehow that your life will change 
When you feel like you don't know what to do 
Stuck inside this maze you can't go through 

Don't give up 
Help is surely on its way 
And don't give up 
And the dark is breaking in today 
And just keep on moving through these storms 
And soon enough you'll find the door 
Just don't give up 
Oh, and don't give up 

These walls around you are caving in 
And your life seems like it is wearing thin
And your hope is drowning in despair 
It looks like you're not going anywhere 
Step inside this heart and then you'll see 
Such a love that is so amazing 

Chorus X2


  1. What a nice song.

    Thanks for participating in yesterday's Wednesday Walkabout!

  2. oh I need this today. Thank you, thank you. When I need some musical love I turn to Casting Crowns; they always bless me.

  3. Thank you for posting this, it really helped me today.

  4. My back has been against the wall so hard I am broken and it can't fixed. Figuratively and literally. My losses are great and my heartache even greater. My friends and trusted few have left huge knife wounds from repeatedly betrayals. I've been hurt, used, cleaned out, abused, attacked and no matter what has happened I opened my door believing in something, hoping this time...but I've been foolish and there's nothing left to give, nothing left from me to take and my view is pretty bleak from where I now stand.

    1. I'm sorry to read this. If you ever just want to talk to someone, you can email me at


You don't know just how lovely you are...thank you.
