All to Jesus I surrender
All to Him I freely give
I will ever love and trust Him
In His presence daily live
I surrender all
I surrender all
All to Jesus I surrender
I surrender all
These were the words rolling around in my head this morning when I woke up.  Words from a song that was sung in church when I was growing up…words that have totally different meaning to me as I grow older.  The second verse…
All to Jesus I surrender
Humbly at His feet I bow
Worldly pleasures all forsaken
Take me Jesus
Take me now
Can I really do this?  Can I surrender E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G. to Him?  Total. Surrender.  Everything?  ALL of it?
I think it is possible that a life of total surrender might have less worry, less frustration.  Might even have less junk!  For the most part, my attitude is one of acceptance…I am not in control, He is.  He has a plan I do not see and I am good with that…but…TOTAL and COMPLETE SURRENDER…yielding my will to his 100% of the time.  Isn’t that what a Christian should strive to attain?  It think it probably is and I continue on my journey to completely and totally surrender my will and my life to him.

Thank you, Lord, for a peaceful and restful sleep, you know that I needed it.  Thank you for this song that you put in my head.  Please help me to willingly surrender my all to you…my time, my treasures, my talents…gifts from you to me, please help me use them to honor you.  You have given me so much, thank you for all of it.  Thank you for my family, please keep them safe and bless them.  Lord, please be with my neighbor and all that she has going on.  Care for her and her family, comfort her and give her peace.
I am asking you to pray with me for two special requests…one is a friends whose husband has experienced some head trauma and is scheduled for a delicate brain surgery on Friday. The other is for my neighbor…her husband has accepted a new job and already relocated, she is here trying to see their house.  They have four little girls and the oldest is in first grade.  The Lord put this family on my heart last year.  I could feel him pushing me to reach out to them and I did, slowly I have gotten to know them.  I have had the opportunity to minister to the them and help them in various ways.  I have issued an invitation for her and the girls to join John & me at church the next Sunday we will be in town and she said yes.  She put it on her calendar while I was standing there.  I pray that the Lord sends a buyer for their home so their family can be together and I also pray that she and husband can renew their faith.

Thank you to Mary333 for my blog award.

Back to my theme for the day…surrender…not MY will, but His will…this I pray.
How about you?  Do you find it hard to surrender all?
