Easier Said than Done.
Surrender requires an immense amount of Faith..at least for me.
I confuse it with Giving Up.
Funny enough...I am quicker to Give Up than to Surrender...go figure.
After experiencing a big disappointment this week, getting my feelings hurt badly by someone I am close to and feeling as emotionally raw as ever...I again..struggle with wanting to give up and give in!
But not Surrender.
But I found this posted on Pinterest:
This is the spiritual definition of Surrender:
To surrender in spirituality and religion means that a believer completely gives up his own will and subjects his thoughts, ideas, and deeds to the will and teachings of a higher power.
Here is the definition of Giving Up:
to cease doing or attempting something especially as an admission of defeat :
There is a Hope in Surrendering that does not exist in Giving Up...
I am Asking, Seeking and Searching desperately for the knowledge and the understanding it takes to Surrender and to find that Hope. I am needing the Faith it takes to Surrender
In the meantime, I continue to move forward in this Journey...I am not giving up...just thinking about it a lot! Not thinking so much about Surrendering...and therein lies the problem.
I found this prayer...
I received these words from a dear friend today...unsolicited..no particular context. Completely out of the blue.
What ever it is, it's okay!
As she sent them...I was praying for the strength and faith to surrender and to trust that all will be OK.
She said she had no idea why she sent them...other than it was on her heart to do so.
I know why!
May God Bless and Keep each one of you!
