Don't make promises to God if you don't mean it! I have really been wrestling with God over ownership of my life. He has recently revealed many areas that I hold tightly onto, what I am discovering is that they didn't belong to me in the first place. I have told Him recently He can have everything, now the testing begins. Am I a woman of my word, or do I just know the right things to say from being in church my entire life.
To Surrender means to give yourself completely. To basically place yourself at someone else's mercy. This is where I find myself.
What I learned to day was that even a tiny area withheld from Him means He doesn't have me at all. Isn't it ironic that my creator is willing to wait for me to decide that I will give myself to Him? I want my life to be lived in this way, serving Him whatever that means.
