Thinking about surrendering this morning. I surrender all. I surrender all. All to Thee, my blessed Savior, I surrender all.
It’s easy to sing these verses but more difficult to do what I sing.
Our mind and spirit wants to surrender all but this flesh fights all the way. It is contrary, selfish, self-willed, greedy, and stubborn; just to name a few characteristics.
We need to let go and let God………..let God handle all of our problems. We must give God control of every area of our lives – financial, physical, sexual, emotional, and spiritual.
It sounds simple but it is not as easy as it seems to give up power. We fear what will happen if we give up being in charge, even to God.
I think that’s a trust issue…
Starting today: We commit to stop trying to hold onto things… and people. We will place every area of our life in God’s hands.
We will exhale.
We will relax.
We will not worry or fret.
The issues and concerns are no longer our problems. We have let go, surrendered, and handed them all over to God.
“I have held many things in my hands, and I have lost them all; but whatever I have placed in God’s hands; that I still possess.”____________________________Martin Luther
What will you turn over to God today?
