Day 13: Surrender


FAITH SURRENDERS

the most important person in your eyes,

and that person is "YOU"!

And when

FAITH SURRENDERS "YOU"

to the ONE who wants to be the the most important

PERSON in your life,

"YOU" become the person

who "YOU" were created to be.

And that my friend is what

FAITH is all about.

Total SURRENDER to

THE ONE

who is your

FAITH~

who speaks

right to

you & me & everyone else~

“Anyone who intends to come with ME has to let ME lead.

You’re not in the driver’s seat—I am.

Don’t run from suffering; embrace it.

Follow ME and I’ll show you how.

Self-help is no help at all.

Self-sacrifice is the way,

MY way, to finding yourself, your true self.

What good would it do to get everything you want

and lose you, the real you?

If any of you is embarrassed with ME and the way I’m leading you, know that

the SON OF MAN will be far more embarrassed with you

when HE arrives in all HIS splendor in company with the FATHER and the holy angels.

This isn’t, you realize, pie in the sky by and by.

Some who have taken their stand right here are going to see it happen,

see with their own eyes the kingdom of GOD" (Luke 9:23-27).

The

FAITH OF SURRENDER

is the total freedom

"YOU" have been looking for.

Oh when JESUS finally got my attention

and I had the choice to give myself to HIM,

it was a scary moment~

as "who would I become" was swirling in my mind,

because all I knew was the me

who was SURRENDERED to other things

for where I placed my FAITH~

to food

to anxiety

to fear

to bulimia

and to so many other little gods.

But I did it anyway, as HE had to become my better choice.

And the moment I

SURRENDERED myself to HIM

that moment became

my life changing moment,

because

no one

no thing

can do what only

HE says that WILL DO.

Because JESUS makes it all about "YOU",

because HE knows "YOU"

way better than you know your "YOU".

Oh the FAITH OF SURRENDER~

“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion?

Come to ME. Get away with ME and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with ME and work with ME~watch how I do it.

Learn the unforced rhythms of grace.

I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you.

Keep company with ME and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly” (Matthew 11:28-30)

Oh THE FAITH OF SURRENDER

Why wouldn't "YOU"

"LET GO" (listen to the song below)
