Welcome to Surrendering, a blog that will explore what it means to genuinely surrender to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, through the lens of the entire bible.
Surrendering is a journey and I believe it is the most challenging and rewarding one we will ever face as believers. Jesus’ words in the scripture below sum up the central theme behind this project perfectly.
At a time when I felt entirely broken and empty of everything I thought myself to be, I cried out to God. He was the only thing between me and taking my life, which didn’t make sense anymore. He came to me and comforted me; the overwhelming love I felt in that moment left me totally awestruck. I surrendered my life to Him then and begged Him to show me how I could be of use to Him. I received a clear answer that I should write and this blog is the result.
I’m not a teacher and I’m not an expert. I’m just a woman who was graciously given the light of love and truth from the Father and who wants to follow Jesus’ instruction that we should let that light shine before men. Because all I can offer is my simple understanding, I ask that you do not rely on me but seek and test for yourselves, searching the scriptures as the Bereans did. Through Jesus’ sacrifice, all who believe in Him have the anointing of the Holy Spirit and that is all we need to discern truth from untruth.
As unworthy as I know I am, I hope that what I share may be a blessing to those who read it. I hope that I am able to help others see the larger picture painted in the bible as God helped me to see it and ultimately, that I am able to point others to our Abba, who loves us more than we can fully comprehend.
