Day 10: Surrender
If GOD wants you
why want what you don't have.
Think about it.
GOD, your CREATOR,
CREATED you on PURPOSE
as no one wishes oneself into existence.
But then we think GOD isn't enough.
I know because I have a void inside that
I am waiting to be filled
by what I want,
while GOD is waiting for me
to give HIM that space so HE can fill it.
But I BELIEVE that if I give up that space in my heart
that I am waiting to be filled
by what I want
then I have to really let go fully to
TRUST HIM FULLY.
Sounds so silly, doesn't it, because
I love GOD & I love JESUS.
I have given up my life for THEM
as THEY saved my life,
yet there is a piece of me
that I have to SURRENDER
that I holding onto.
I know that when I SURRENDER to GOD
HE always overwhelms me beyond my wildest dreams,
yet to take the step is so hard.
Tears overwhelm me
as GOD is pulling at my heartstrings
by asking me to
give HIM every part of me.
My holding on is only hurting myself
because holding on is a false sense of control.
Is there a space in your heart that you are keeping
on hold for that someone or the something?
If GOD wants all of you why want anything else.
But because GOD is such a gentleman
HE never forces HIS LOVE on anyone.
It is a choice
to RECEIVE FULLY
to BELIEVE FULLY
that GOD IS LOVE
or HE would have never given up HIS SON
who is also a gentleman who tells us~
"The LORD our GOD is the one and only LORD.
And you must love the LORD your GOD
with all your heart, all your soul,
all your mind, and all your strength" (Mark 12:29-30).
The time is now.
Will you join me
and give your whole
HEART & SOUL & MIND
to the ONE who created
HEARTS & SOULS & MINDS
so HE can do what HE does best
"we know that in all things GOD WORKS FOR THE GOOD
of those who LOVE HIM, who have been called according to HIS purpose" (Romans 8:28).
GOD is now really pulling on my heartstrings this very moment
to FULLY SURRENDER that piece of my heart that I am keeping hostage,
as I hear these words playing in the background
"GOD You don't need me
But somehow YOU want me.
Oh, how YOU love me.
Somehow that frees me
To take my hands off of my life
And the way it should go"*
GOD is so lovingly persistent,
so I will answer HIS invitation.
Will you, too,
