Surrender

(an excerpt from When God Is Faithful, And Your Husband Isn’t, Janice Porter Lynch 2011)

 

 

Surrendering My Whole Life to God

and Trusting Him

 White Flag

“Therefore, I urge you, brothers,

in view of God’s mercy,

to offer your bodies as living sacrifices,

holy and pleasing to God—

this is your spiritual act of worship.”

Romans 12:1

~~~

 

One of the most important decisions that I made was to put myself wholly in God’s Hands and to trust Him.

I could not control those who were against me.  Everything they were doing was out of my sight anyway. But God could see, and God loved both of us, and God had the power to help.

I knew that my job was to praise God for His active and loving care and to pray for my enemies.

“Submit yourselves,

then, to God.

Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”

James 4:7

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart

and lean not on your own understanding;

In all your ways acknowledge Him,

and he will make your paths straight.”

Proverbs 3:5-6
