.Surrender.

sur·ren·der - To relinquish possession or control of to another because of demand or compulsion.

I thought I had learned this.

I wrote of it back here in relation to God drawing us out of the camp ministry and into a pastoral ministry.

I feel as if I am learning it all over again right now. I cannot write of details. Soon I will be able to.

I am having to wake up and surrender it all to Him.

Every. day.

All to Jesus I surrender.

All to Him I freely give.

I will ever love and trust Him.

In His presence daily live.

I surrender all.

I surrender all.

All to Thee my blessed Savior - I surrender all.

All to Jesus I surrender.

Humbly at His feet I bow.

Worldy pleasures all forsaken.

Take me Jesus, take me now.

I surrender all.

I surrender all.

All to Thee my blessed Savior - I surrender all.


Earnestly praying over how that looks in my life, how it manifests itself in my day-to-day moments, and how it is changing the face of our life forever.

Even your most simple posts are encouragement to me. The word "surrender" was my theme word of 2009...it is continuing to be my theme word of 2010. I'm not sure how much of my blog you've read, but from Oct 2008-Sep 2009 we had to foster girls in our home. They're my baby girls and after living for them for 11 months I love them like sisters. Their future is uncertain and I want to protect their little hearts and lives. I have to wake up every morning surrendering them to our very capable God, knowing that He can care for my sweet angels better than I can even imagine. It's hard and it wears on me. It hurts and I cry. He is capable though and as hard as it is to imagine, He loves these precious little girls more than I do. Surrender.
Thinking of you today!

What a beautiful and true post.

Our Lord is sooo good. It's so ironic that we fight surrendering to the one who saves us, helps us, and cares for us. Thank you for reminding me of the truth of HIM.

Blessings,

RACHEL

Hey, I'm so behind on blog reading since we were gone for a week and now I'm swamped with work, but I wanted to say that I love the "new look"! I need to get one of those signature boxes. How do you create one? Still trying to figure out how to do a watermark on my photos as well!

Tiff, This is how we grow. Like a sponge. A sponge can only take in so much. To be useful, the sponge needs to be squeezed out, then it can soak more in. It is hard being squeezed, but so wonderful being used by GOD. Love you, here in the Surrender tank with you. ~AK~
