Surrender…letting go…to be free…
When I think of surrender, my mind travels back to a few years ago sitting on my friend’s couch as we had a heart to heart talk. As we talked about my challenging job situation, I remember her asking me if I was willing to surrender everything to God.
Surrender….to let go…to be free from control
My journey of surrender led to a gratitude journal. Despite my circumstances, every day, I recorded things I was grateful for. Most days, they were simple things, but it helped me stay focused on trusting God with the details of my life.
One of the greatest gifts of learning to surrender has been trusting God with anxiety. It has been a long journey, but I have learned to let go and let God. When I feel myself becoming anxious, I reflect to seek the root cause. I turn it over to God and pray on it.
So much of life is out of our control. Our reaction to life is within our control.
Surrender…let go and trsut God.
