Surrendering Your Heart
When I was involved in my abusive relationship, I refused to surrender the relationship. I was so afraid of losing this man that the more he pulled away; the stronger I tried to hang on. This did not bring him any closer, which made me more and more desperate. I began to resent the person I’d become.
God wants us to surrender complete control to Him. Not just in our relationships, but for all aspects of our lives. I did not surrender this control until things deteriorated so drastically, that my life became a living nightmare. I often wonder how much better my decisions and mental health would have been if I hadn’t tried to hold on so tightly, and surrendered everything earlier.
In our humanness we find it difficult to completely surrender to God, but that’s what he longs.
How do you surrender?
With your whole heart!
I had to wait until I was broken before I was willing to do so. I pray that is not the path you’re on.
Do you want to submit to the Lord, but can’t come to that place of giving it all to Him?
Pray and ask Him to help! I promise you He will.
James 4: 7-8 tells us “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.”
Is there something you’re holding on to, too tightly? If you’re not sure, ask God for guidance. Don’t be blinded and refuse to see it the way I did. Submit to Him today!
Things run so much smoother when we are in God’s will then against it. Are you double minded? Are you in God’s will?
