I am learning surrender means saying yes. It means saying yes to God before I even know what I am saying yes to. It means every morning, I say yes. As I drive to work, I say yes. I say yes to whatever comes my way. And when I want to say no, I still say yes. I am honest with Him…I tell Him when I really want to say no, but I am choosing to say yes…sometimes in a whispered yes through tears. I know He will be with me. Saying yes is trusting. Trusting when I don’t understand. Trusting when I don’t want to endure what I am walking through. Saying yes is trusting God with my life, trusting that He knows what is best for me.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not lean on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take. Proverbs 3:5-6 NLT
