Surrender

Surrender

I recently realized just how awesome it is to surrender.

It’s such a blissful feeling to know that I do not have to surrender to stress.

I do not have to surrender to worry.

I do not have to surrender to depression.

I do not have to surrender to uncertainty.

I do not have to surrender to anxiety.

I do not have to surrender to pain.

I do not have to surrender to doubt.

I do not have to surrender to fear.

I do not have to surrender to heartache.

I do not have to surrender to anguish.

I do not have to surrender to grief.

Because I have chosen to surrender to God, I can stand on the promises of His word instead.

His word never fails—-it will endure til the end!


Whenever my flesh begins to give in to the old surrender, I quickly begin to counteract with God’s word. Sometimes I’ll go a step further and write some of those promises in my prayer journal when I’m struggling. Instead of focusing on those ugly words like stress and doubt that could easily overwhelm me, I focus on the promises of God’s word. He gave us the ability to use His word as a weapon to defeat the enemy and his bullets of grief, fear, et c.

I am thankful that I have surrendered my life to God!
