In the stillness of the morning hours before anyone in my house was out of bed, I heard these words – “I want more”. I knew it was God talking to my heart. He wants more of me. He wants all of me. I surrender all. All the pettiness, the insecurities, the pride. I surrender all. That’s what He wants and He won’t stop working in me until He has it all. And I praise His name for this gift. He will not leave me where I am. He will guide me where He wants me to be.
And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns. Philippians 1:6
God wants all of us. Willingly. Without pressure. He wants all of us. He is the only one who can finish the good work He started. This good work includes so many wonderful things:
- Spiritual Understanding
This growing process can be painful at times but it is so worth the trip. I am so incredibly humbled that God chose me to be His daughter. I desire to please Him. But I also know I can’t please Him in my own strength. God is the complete opposite of the way of the world. In the world, to please people, we have to DO things to earn their approval and love. With God, we do nothing on our own. We have to surrender all and allow Him free control. Total control over our whole being. This is the only way. I surrender all. My Easter wish is for these words to touch one life. For God to use my words to brighten another’s darkness. We make life so difficult when it can be filled with joy and peace, even admidst trials and problems. Love, joy and peace come when we surrender all. These are gifts from God. These are not things that we can achieve through any other means or works.
We can only experience true love, true joy and true peace when we surrender all.
Dear God, Today I am so very thankful for the work that was completed on the Cross so many years ago. The love that You poured out to us that day for all of eternity is too awesome to even put into words. Please help us to be mindful of the need all around us. Help each of us reach the point where we surrender all. Continue to bless us with your love, your joy, your peace, and your wisdom so that we can share that blessing with others for Your glory. Keep each of us in the Light and the Love that is only found in Your Son Jesus Christ. In His name we pray. Amen
Stay in the Light and the Love Always,
