I SURRENDER TO GOD!!
This is the first time I made a strong public statement declaring my love for our Lord. It has been on my mind and I have wanted to do it for several months, but I kept putting it off until tomorrow …. not one day more … for today, NO this hour, NO this moment is what my Lord has made and I am rejoicing in it!
Surrendering to anything or anyone is very unusual for a person like me, I feel so much better when I am in control of everything. During a prayer breakfast held at church … over five months ago, I actually picked “self-control” as my spiritual fruit I wanted to focus on and grow. I did improve, but spent so much time fighting off daily temptations in my life. However, since I have personally surrendered everything to the Lord … I have had success. Its funny how sometimes you have more control when you actually release your grip on things you can’t control by yourself.
The Lord has great plans for you, and wants you to surrender all your desires, all your worries and all your human understandings and just trust in Him only.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
Here are some other great links to read and hopefully understand why surrendering is so important as you seek Jesus in your life.
God Bless You,
