Day 10: Surrender


It is so hard to do,

because it is FREE to do &

it is up to you to do it.

So you put it off

and

wait for the perfect time,

but the perfect time never comes

because the perfect time

is actually always right now

to

SURRENDER.

What if the caterpillar refused to build a cocoon

where would the butterfly be?

SURRENDER.

What if JESUS never took the walk from the cradle to cross,

would there be a RESURRECTION?

The FREEDOM of SURRENDER.

I don't wanna, but I will do it anyway

because YOU are asking me to do it anyway,

but will YOU help me get there~

“ABBA! FATHER! All things are possible for YOU; remove this cup from ME;

yet not what I will, but what YOU will” (Matthew 26:39).

SURRENDER when?

When you don't want to but you do it anyway because

GOD SURRENDERED HIS SON

at the perfect time~

"But when the right time came, GOD sent HIS SON..."(Galatians 4:4)

So the perfect time is when you & I

SURRENDER to HIS WILL~

"Trust in the LORD with all your heart

and lean not on your own understanding" (Proverbs 3:5)

And keep SURRENDERING~

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to GOD" (Philippians 4:6).

And never stop~

"Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances..."*

Just because GOD has asked us to~

"...for this is GOD’s will for you in CHRIST JESUS" (I Thessalonians 5:16-18).

Aren't you glad the caterpillar SURRENDERED?

"Therefore, if anyone is in CHRIST, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!"

(2 Corinthians 5:17)

What do you need to SURRENDER,

but are waiting for the perfect time to SURRENDER?

For now is the perfect time~

"but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength.

They will soar on wings like eagles;

they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint" (Isaiah 40:31).

Oh the FREEDOM of SURRENDER

that always leads you to a better space & place

that you would never get to experience

if you never exercise your

FREEDOM to do so

because

SURRENDER is not a figment of your imagination.

"I SURRENDER" (listen to the song below)
