If winning is everything, surrendering is unthinkable, right?
Everybody eventually surrenders to something or someone. If not God, you will surrender to the opinions or expectations of others, to money, to resentment, to fear,or to your own pride, lusts, or ego. You were designed to worship God and if you fail to worship him, you will create other things (idols) to give your life to. You are free to choose what you surrender to, but you are not free from the consequences of that choice.
Hey there, How are you feeling today? Today I’m on day 10 of the purpose driven life and the topic is Heart of Worship mostly focusing on surrendering. This is a pretty interesting topic since it’s not the easiest thing to do. We are encouraged to be strong, to not give up and when we throw in the towel,we are deemed weak & feeble.
Some of the blessings that you receive by surrendering to God as the author put’s it is you will have peace, you will have freedom and you’ll experience God’s presence in your life.
When I think of all this, I haven’t been doing a good job of surrendering, I’ve been distracted, selfish and self-centered. It will not be easy, but I will make that step no matter how slow it might be. When I think of surrender, listening to the following is only the best way of describing how beautiful it is:
