Each Friday my writing stems from a word prompt. Five minutes, one word prompt. The prompt this week is … Surrender.
Surrender – brings the thought of giving oneself up to another.
Most times we tend to think of this action as a sign of weakness or defeat. Of losing oneself or one’s dream.
And yet, only as we give our lives over to God do we discover all we were ever meant to be and do.
Surrender is not weakness but in fact, a sign of strength.The words to a song I discovered about a week ago came back to my mind upon seeing the word prompt:
Arms wide open.
Pouring out my life.
All to Jesus now,
All to Jesus now.
Holding nothing back,
Holding nothing back.
(from the song, Gracefully Broken as sung by Matt Redman)
Arms wide open. Pouring out.
Surrendered to His purposes which He ordained before the creation of this world.
Only in surrender do we discover –
His power and work in us.
Freedom to be.
We are strong when we are weak.
