"Be still, and know that I am God... (Psalm 46:10)
It was in the stillness that I heard Him speaking to me.
It was in the calm from the storm, that I was reminded of His presence.
I know that He is with me all the time, and that He speaks to me through many different ways, but it was while I sat on a rock, looking at this magnificent sunset, crying out to God, that He spoke to me.
It was a rough couple of past days and a particularly difficult evening with our daughter. I again asked God, rather than "Why", "What is it that you, God are trying to teach me?" There was a sense of calmness and peace as He laid one word on my heart, SURRENDER.
I have been trying to surrender my life to God, but I suppose I needed to be reminded of this once again. I am trying to learn more what it truly means to surrender to God with my whole heart and all of my life.
S- Submit, or yield to God, His authority, His will, and His plan for my life
U- ultimately surrendering my life, my all
R- relinquishing my control and giving that all to God
R-"rest easy now that I've put it into God's hands" (Jeff and Sheri Easter)
E- experiencing freedom
N- never stop trusting in God's plan
D- doubt-free knowing that everything is in God's hands
E- everything is in His control
R- right now, not later, but right now!
