surrendering present participle of sur·ren·der (Verb)
Hi, you may not know me or maybe you do. Which ever is the case, I invite you to following along as I attempt to document my daily attempts to dive into God’s Word, the Bible and surrender myself to His truth. You may be wondering why I choose to call this blog ‘surrendering to truth.’ I guess the short answer is that, much like the Rich Mullins song goes -
Surrender don’t come natural to me
I’d rather fight you for something
I don’t really want
Than to take what you give that I need
And I’ve beat my head against so many walls
Now I’m falling down, I’m falling on my knees
- I always find myself fighting for something and it usually isn’t something I really want. For, to fight is natural and of the natural man, but to surrender is not natural because it is not of the flesh – it is to yield to the spirit of God. Surrender does not mean giving up in the sense that we cease all movement or motion. Surrender means to yield to another authority and in this case the only authority. It is to surrender to His movement and motion in our lives – His power, wisdom and direction.
So, all that being said, I don’t think that I’m going to get this perfect, but I hope that I can use this blog to hold myself accountable and maybe encourage someone else along the way.
