Surrender Control

Surrendering what little control we have feels impossible. The truth is when we are trying to be in control, we many times wind up out of control while trying to be in control. That became the story of my life. I had been trying to be in control of everything and everyone in my sphere of influence. I finally had to admit the truth. That wasn’t working. I was exhausted and in control of nothing.

The truth I didn’t want to face was: I will never be IN control until I let God have FULL control of everything in my life including what I eat. This is a good definition of what Surrendering to God looks like. It includes laying down my desires in order to take up His desires for me.

The beautiful result of surrendering to God is that there is no need to hang on to stress and worry. We just leave all that junk with Him. He’s big enough to handle it. “Pour out all your worries and stress upon Him and leave them there, for he always tenderly cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7 TPT).‬‬‬
