Five Minute Friday: Surrender

It’s Friday!

Another crazy week.  Trying hard to fit a Couch to 5K program into my life.  Some days there’s just too many pieces of life to cram them all in.

Linking up with Kate Motaung and the FMF community.

This week’s word is surrender.

**********

Surrender means to give up.

Give up the right to control.  Give up the right to call the shots.  Give up the right to have your own way.

It’s a hard thing for me to do.

But, it comes down to, who are you surrendering to?

Surrendering to a controlling person who doesn’t have your best interests in mind is one thing.

Surrendering to a loving God who knows the future, who has a plan and ultimately has your best interests in mind is totally different.

Granted, it’s not always easy to know where God is leading.

But, it is possible to live life open handed, willing to surrender when the leading is clear.

    I’m terrible at giving up control. It’s a good job God knows what I’m like and He leads me gently in the right way. Thank you for sharing. Your neighbour today on FMF #37
