|| surrender || to agree to stop resisting, hiding, running, fighting. to yield to the power, control or possession of another. to give oneself up into the power of another.
surrendering everything to God! everything means all. all means entirely, the whole thing. not selectively or partially. when we surrender ourselves to God, we give our everything both the good and the bad.
this reminds me that it includes our memories or past experiences. sometimes, we are here and not there. 'there' being where God desires us to be at. one of the things that may be potentially holding us back is ourselves, more clearly, our own thoughts about things and/or our memories.
Isaiah 43:18 NKJV,""Do not remember the former things, Nor consider the things of old." •do not call into remembrance the past, both good and bad times. let it go! •the past is over. do not discern the older times. the past has passed. move on!
to move on, we go through transitioning. from "here" to "there" is 'the process'. the process could only take place when we surrender everything - to let go the past so that we could be free to embrace the new. for any new beginning to take place, there would be a need for an ending. if there is no end, there could not be a new beginning.
Ecclesiastes 7:8-14 NKJV, "The end of a thing is better than its beginning; The patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit." •the end is the final point that marks the closure. •coming to the end of something would being us to a place of complete surrendering. putting us in a need for God. •the end is a place of humility and resetting. to reset by entrusting ourselves to God Almighty. to allow Him to make beauty out of our ashes. to allow Him to do the new thing!!! •when we surrender, He resets!
let us be bold and take a trust fall with Jesus Christ. we trust Him and surrender all to Him. even our memories and past experiences, surrender it all to God Almighty. let God be God. let The Creator wow us with the new things He is about to do in our lives. the journey ahead is way more glorious than before. trust Him. move forward, move on. go where He is leading us to. let us be bold to possess the blessings!✨
