“Surrender”

What do you think of when you hear the word surrender?

The word triggers an image in my head of someone standing with their hands in the air, saying “I give-up!”

With a negative image like that, it’s hard to see how surrendering can be a good thing. However, it’s been said that it can actually set us free. I surrendered my life to God a long time ago or at least I thought I had, but it was kind of a give and take thing for me. Like a child giving a toy to a friend only to grab it right back. I think it was difficult because I thought I had to give up who I was in order to fully surrender myself. What I eventually came to realize was that my surrender was not giving up who I was. It was giving up what was standing in the way of being my true self. What I believe in my heart is that what we are truly surrendering is the part of us that keeps us from being the person God created us to be. When we are true to ourselves there is no following there is simply being. I am in Him, and He is in me, and like the river that flows along the banks we flow as One.river
