This post is about my struggle to surrender to God and how I eventually let go of the reigns in my life, marriage and as a mother. Being a control freak, surrendering to God was difficult. So much so that I didn’t completely surrender until June 2016.
Wow, what profound yet simple truth! Take a moment to meditate on that for a moment.
My take away:
-Surrendering requires faith
-Surrendering requires strength
– Surrendering requires being planted in His word
-Surrendering is a daily task, sometimes hour by hour or minute by minute
-Surrendering requires daily prayer
-Surrendering leads to peace in that you know that you that God is in control
Finally, please understand that as believers, we must put our faith in action. We must trust in the lord.
Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and lean not to your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
Do you find yourself battling fully surrendering what ever “it” may be to the Lord? Ask yourself, why? Repent and ask the Lord to help you trust in him completely. My friend, be fully surrendered.
