I Surrender All

I Surrender All

I received this post in an email and found it very inspirational.  When things are not going the way you want, just turn it all over to God:

Dear God:

This is _______________.  Thank you God for blessing me to see another day.  God, I come before you this morning with feelings that have begun to consume me. Lately, I’ve felt overwhelmed.  I feel sad.  I am confused.  I’m feeling angry.  I’ve become bitter.  I feel discouraged.  I feel hurt.  I feel abandoned.  I feel taken for granted.  I feel unloved.   My soul is weary.  As these feelings deepen within me, I am beginning to feel lost.  Who am I?  I don’t recognize me!    I have tried to figure it out on my own, and I receive what I now know, is only a temporary fix, because these feelings always resurface.  This place is not where I desire to be Lord, so this morning, “oh my Lord, my precious Lord……………….  I SURRENDER:

I surrender my husband/wife and trust you to restore what has been lost. We are slowly becoming strangers.  I feel alienated.  The ability to talk with each other has become strained.  The love we once basked in seems like a distant memory.  Bless my marriage dear God, that it be restored to what you would have it to be.

I surrender my relationship that has entered troubled waters.  It seems like there is trouble throughout this relationship that I’ve invested so much into.  Bless me Lord that I trust you to do what you desire to do.  If this relationship is for me, I trust you to restore it better than it was.  If it is not for me, I trust you to remove me from it and give me what I need to press forward.

I surrender my child(ren) and trust you to give me discernment in all areas of their lives, as well as the wisdom to guide them accordingly.

I surrender my finances and trust you to provide where there is lack.

Listening to God’s Purpose for Your Life

Listening to God’s Purpose for Your Life

Have you ever been in a situation where everything was going great, and then out of nowhere, you get thrown a curveball? Work going well, relationship wonderful, and house in order…then BOOM…your boss writes you up for what feels like nothing, your significant other walks out and your house needs more repairs in one week than it needed in 1 year. Instead of screaming, “Lord, why me?! What did I do wrong?” think, “Lord what are You trying to tell me?” Sometimes God uses these difficult situations to shake us out of our complacency. Maybe you know the relationship you’re in isn’t the healthiest, but you don’t know how to leave; or you feel the urge to move from your current location but are scared because of the economy. You could even be like me: feeling stuck and praying for a breakthrough only to get frustrated when it happens. Let me step back a bit to help you understand…
