I Surrender

Maybe this cold winter weather is getting to me. Anyone else feeling just a bit lazy and unmotivated?

I was chatting with a dear friend the other day about this. As she was going through some struggles with her family how important it is for us to trust in the Lord and Just Surrender our situation.

Certainly it isn’t easy to just let go but when we do it’s amazing how God works. We see things that we wouldn’t have seen if we hadn’t put our faith in Him.

It is all about our perspective. When we are surrounded by darkness and when we allow those negative thoughts in we exude that very same thing. Too often I fear when trials come we run from God instead of running to Him.

Again and again the past week or so I have heard so many messages confirming the value of us seeing trials as triumphs. I have been reminded repeatedly but God uses these things to give us a powerful testimony to his goodness and his love.

Can we see the goodness even in the mess? No matter how it seems things are falling apart we must remember but sometimes these things must happen in order for everything to fall into place.

If we can just submit to Dad’s well. If we can just acknowledge but our trial is for our good how his glory will be seen!
