Surrender to God!

Don’t give up! Surrender to God.

May you remember that settling is not the same as surrendering. Sometimes we suffer enough life-blows that it takes the wind right out of our sails. We’ve settled because we’ve stopped dreaming. To settle into your circumstances is to give up hope that things will ever change. To settle is to lose sight of the promise written over your life; it’s to lose sight of God’s activity in your midst. To surrender, on the other hand, is to look to the One who holds the stars in place, and to trust Him to do what only He can do. To surrender is to believe that God cares, listens, and moves on every act prompted by your faith. When you surrender to God in your circumstances, you embrace forward moving faith while trusting God in the now. Jesus wants to breathe fresh life into your sails. He intends to impart fresh dreams to your soul. He’s all about renewal, refreshment and redemption. Don’t settle. Surrender it all to Him and keep believing for miracles. Susie

Proverbs 3:5-6 (NLT) ~ Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.
