i surrender

“I surrender all,  I surrender all, Oh to thee my precious Savior, I surrender all.” And so the old Hymn goes…

Do I though? Do I surrender? Do I have a choice? God is sovereign. All powerful. Regardless whether or not I surrender, God’s will is accomplished. So is it truly surrender when it feels like it was taken? Stolen from me without my consent?  How is that surrender?

I believe that surrender is a posture of my heart. Do I truly believe that all of life is all for Jesus. I do; that is surrender. Do I hold life, and loved ones in open hands, versus a vice grip? I do; that is surrender. Do I believe that God knows best even when I cannot see it? I do; that is surrender.

Lord, help my heart to be postured towards you in surrender, when I don’t know what to do, when I don’t know what to say, when I don’t know where to go, and I don’t know what to think.

I leave you with this song today.  I will listen to it all day today.  May the truth of its lyrics be reflected in my life…

“When I Don’t Know What To Do” by Tommy Walker

Chorus: When I don’t know what to do, I’ll lift my hands. WHen I don’t know what to say, I’ll speak your praise. When I don’t know where to go, I’ll run to your throne. When I don’t know what to think, I’ll stand on Your truth. When I don’t know what to do.

Verse 1: Lord, I surrender all, to your strong and faithful hand. In everything I will give thanks to You. I’ll trust Your perfect plan.

Verse 2: Lord, I surrender all, though I’ll never understand, all the mysteries around me. I’ll trust Your perfect plan.

Bridge: As I bow my knee, send Your perfect peace. Send Your perfect peace, Lord, as I lift my hands. Let Your healing come, let Your healing come to me.
