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

GOD

and

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

our

HEARTS & SOULS & MINDS

so HE can do what HE does best

because

"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,

give HIM

*"CONTROL"
