Should I quit

Should I quit
Walk away
May it be
Because it is
Your best plan
Your good time
Your faithful hand guiding

May it not be
My weariness
Life exploding
Or imploding
Because I did not learn
To follow You
And lead self

May it be in peace
With love
And blessing
Mutually shared
Not anger
Relief to be done

And then
May it be
Not a "quit"
But a healthy
And exciting "transition"
All things left
In the most capable hands

And until then
If there ever is a "then"
May thoughts
And words
Like "quit"
Be banished
May there be resilience
And perseverance
And hope
That there will still be
Strength enough
Provision in time
And may there be
The knowledge
That these trials
Are producing
Something more precious
Than gold 

Let us not become weary in doing good, 
for at the proper time we will reap a harvest 
if we do not give up.  
Gal. 6:9 NIV
