In one fell swoop everything was different. An instant. That’s how long it takes for everything to change when a part of me I have been holding onto surrenders to God. Today I stopped kicking and screaming as He tried to drag me away from something that wasn’t good for me. Something that I wanted with every fiber of my being. In a moment of clarity, ah there it was, SURRENDER. Do you know what comes after surrender? In that moment when darkness becomes light there is peace, lightness, calm. There is a swelling of Spirit that leaves you so happy you could cry from the relief it brings as the stress you were under just melts away. It is that moment of surrender that there is less of me and more of Him.
I know that after the surrender inevitably there will come an attack from the enemy, but I’m not worried. If God is for me, who can be against me? (Romans 8:31)
I am going to enjoy this sweet moment of surrender while it lasts. Then I am going to keep searching out those areas that I have been keeping hidden away and trying my best to surrender them to God. I don’t know if it is possible to ever surrender them all. After all there was only One who was perfect. But that isn’t going to stop me from trying!
