Teach Me To Surrender

Performance and achievement based Christianity is tiring and heavy, hindering intimacy and relationship with our Savior. It fosters pride and fear of failure.

Surrendering and allowing God to work through us to achieve His purposes and reach even greater heights than imagined brings freedom.

**Performance puts the focus on ourselves.**

Surrender puts the focus on God and His ability, encourages our dependence on Him and promotes intimacy and fellowship.

I'm still learning total and complete surrender.

Teach me to surrender, Lord.....

Not my will, but Yours.

"For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."
Matthew 11:30

I just got done reading another post about surrender. Maybe God's trying to say something to me??

I commented to her - and I'll say it again because I think it's so true. Surrender is not something we do because we've lost all hope - it's turning to the only One who gives us hope, and the only One who can control the outcome.

I love this quote by Susie Larson,

I’m NOT who I was
I’m NOT what I do
I’m someone He enjoys
