In the end of December/Beginning of January, a blogger wrote a post about One Word that was on your heart, for the new year, not a resolution just a word. Every year end I pray for God to give me something that will help me into and thru the new year. Sometimes its been verses i needed to commit to memory, that at some point in the year, i ended up leaning on with all being. Yeah, HE does that when we ask.
But this year He gave me a word. SURRENDER. Ahhhhh the longer i thought on it, the more mixed my thoughts became. I know that my heart is surrendered to HIM as my King, my Creator, and LORD. But it seemed to mean something else…so casually i put it aside.
As every other year, the year moves on, and soon I am faced with exactly why I need that one thing God has given me.
I learned a long time ago that people fail me, and all my decisions/choices are mine. But God never fails me.
I have been going thru lots of ups and downs, with changes in my life that just had to change. Health issues with family. With each and every heart ache, disappointment, or discouragement, HE stood before me reminding me to SURRENDER these things to HIM. Its not about how well i can take care of me or the ones i love. We all belong to HIM, and HE is doing things we just don’t always understand.
SURRENDER…getting my hands off it, laying down at HIS feet, and leaving it there with HIM..SURRENDER…A lesson I am sure i will continue to learn. Things are going well in our lives, and some rough spots are still in front of us, but breathing easy is due to SURRENDER…
