Life has worn me down. Life has stressed me out. Worry assaults me. So I surrender.
I am tired. Life is too hard. I can’t handle it on my own. So I surrender.
My mind holds me captive to judgment, worry, fear, anger, impatience, selfishness. So I surrender.
He gave His life for mine. He surrendered His life for me. So I surrender to Him.
Why surrender? Because I love Him. I wish my love came for free. But He paid a high price, the highest. It took that price to buy my love. Yes, I feel ashamed. But His love is overpowering my shame. The dark shadow of my shame vanishes under the brilliant light of His love. All that is left is love. And with all my love, I surrender to you dear Jesus.
With all my heart,
