In our natural world ‘surrender’ is often seen as a ‘defeat’.
In the Kingdom of God our greatest victories will come when we learn to surrender EVERY circumstance to the ONE who is higher and greater than ourselves.
It really doesn’t matter what circumstances we face – health, finances, age-related, family, our own personal issues of anger, grief, loss, uncertainty and fear.
Surrender to Christ and see His atoning blood at the CROSS as being able to cover, redeem and make better ALL THINGS.
Let it ALL go…..on the Wind. Then, listen to the Voice of the Spirit if there is further you should DO.
His Wisdom will guide how we should DO anything. Our smaller minds will only devise programs of ‘help’ or maybe ‘comfort’.
SURRENDER….LET GOD BE GOD!
Let His ongoing Life in you continue to be a Light of Hope in this darkening world.
AT the Cross, AT the Cross is where I first saw the LIGHT.
1 John 5, 4,5,6,7 are helpful scriptures.
OUR BIG HOW WONDERFUL HOW AWESOME INDEED IN OUR GOD.!
I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions.
I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
Indeed, “let God be God.” Easy to say at times in my own life; yet much harder to do! Grateful for the lessons in trust that help to sustain me during those difficult times. Hugs to helping me “hang-on” when necessary!
