I mentioned this to my spiritual director last month and she said I should explore that more and see what God is saying to me. If you've been to spiritual direction before, you know that her response was a good one, but .... Don't you just want them to tell you what it means sometimes?
Well I've been sitting in this non-writing space for quite some time and today, while in devotion I came across the word, surrender.
Surrender is usually connected to giving up.
Today, I'm seeing surrender as letting go.
- of the need to be in control
- of the need to be right
- of the search for the "right" answer
- of the fear of being ME
- of other people's impressions of me
- of yesterday's misery
- of dead/dying relationships
- of my biases and prejudices
- of any limited view of GOD
Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7
Oh, let us PRAISE!!! our God. Let us magnify God, as we SURRENDER for PEACE.
