Reminding Myself...

Reposting from February and reminding myself....

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

Thank you for this post! Surrender to His will is not always easy, but it is the best in the long run! Our words should be, "What next Lord?" I am reminded of the old hymn, "Where He leads I will follow." Still good words for today!!!

Hi there! It's Jen again from Finding Heaven -- I didn't know that you were going to She Speaks until I saw your FB post today. How fun that we found each other before the conference. Hope you link up for Soli Deo Gloria. And, FYI, just to let you know, I'm coming from Austin!

Performance puts the focus on ourselves. Surrender puts the focus on God. These are wise words. Thank you!
