Surrender

 

Our Surrender Collection is based on Proverbs 3:5-6 :: Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight.

Surrender can be seen as a negative word.  Some even relate it to being out-of-control and passive toward life. However, when we live in a posture of surrendering to the Lord, it's just listening for His voice and being willing and available to do what He asks and follow Him – instead of doing what our selfish nature wants.

Through this posture of surrender, we can live with reckless abandon knowing that God is in control of our days.  And, it doesn't stop there.  Every day we can walk boldly because our hope is secure in Christ.  Everything else will fail us - the people in our lives, the situations that surround us, the money in our bank account, and the list goes on...

And so, Lord, where do I put my hope?  My only hope is in you.  Psalm 39:7
