THE ART OF SURRENDER 

So we are running up and down trying to fix things in our lives that seems in disarray ,from financial struggle to emotional struggle. We don’t know what is wrong in our lives . We try to fathom but never coming to that satisfying conclusion . The struggle is real and we cannot deny that ,the very joy that we are seeking seems elusive each and everyday and we cant really figure out what is wrong or where did we go wrong ,we still gallop in our thoughts trying to find out the answer.


Stop holding on and just be held .

 
The answer however is not in philosophical do’s and don’ts ,I am not about to give you a list of things you should do to bring a solution to the very many questions you haven’t been able to answer;well we all have those intriguing questions that we always ask God ,why? Take a short journey with me and we shall be fine.

The Answer 
The answer is a divine one,the answer is in surrender ,I mean let God work out the answer for you . How many times have we tried by our will power to make things work for us be it in our places of work or in relationships but in the end we are just bitter and hurting. There are jobs we have held on to and we aren’t ready to let go even though God has showed you by various signs that you should quit it. There are people we have held on for so long ,no matter how much pain they have caused us and we are not about to let them go .we are gripping the knife on the cutting edge .
It is a worth saying;there is power in surrender;why would you not stop holding on and just be held by God’s grace and let him lead the way. Jeremiah 10;23
“I know, Lord, that our lives are not our own. We are not able to plan our own course.”


If we had let God run our lives ,it is not that we would be living a perfect life in this crooked world but we would be a joyful lot knowing that God is in it ,that kind of joy that comes from being in his will . So let go every bitterness, forgive and forget where need be. Trust in the Lord and be strong in His grace that is always sufficient. Let God be your strength. Stop holding on and just be held.
