I am incredibly uncomfortable with uncertainty. Is there really many people who love the feeling of helplessness or knowing there is a possibility that you could sound like an idiot? I love being able to safely control situations (at least thinking I can). I don’t like thinking that I’m exposed, vulnerable to judgment from others. Giving control over to another being is not something that comes easy to me. I’ll just say it plainly, I don’t like the initial feeling of surrendering. I feel weak.
That is all about FEELING…how about what we KNOW to be TRUTH? Who better to surrender to? The One that was powerful enough to create the world with a breath from His lungs. The One who conquered death. The One who will never leave or forsake us. He is safe. He will not make fun of our incompetency or hold our mistakes against us.
He has made a covenant with us that is binding. Not out of obligation, but because He totally and completely believes we are worth it. I am His and He is mine. My life is already in His hands, so why shouldn’t my trust be? Actions will speak louder than words. My first instinct is to preserve my self control and hold on to what a can make happen, but He is challenging me to surrender and lay EVERYTHING as a love sacrifice at His feet. HIS LOVE MAKES IT WORTH IT ALL!!!
