I love how I know can now see clearly the truth of Jesus’ teaching when we surrender, that His power comes. Surrender is not a point of weakness but of strength.. Throughout the Bible we read that when a person finally stops trying to do things their way or chooses to surrender their will to God’s, that God steps in with power and perfection of His way to bring about victory and great blessings on His children.
Lord, I give my life to you; my God, I trust you…~ Psalm 25:1–2
Even Jesus. Yes, even Jesus wanted to be sure that we saw through His example that our weakness is not a sign of defeat but, in fact, the place where Satan had better run. Luke 22 graphically relates the humanness of Jesus as He cries out to God about what is to come. As the bloody sweat pours from His body, Jesus surrenders to God’s will. Jesus shows us that surrender may not come easily; it may not come initially with contentment but God is faithful to give me the courage and peace I need.
Sometimes “I trust You” is all that we can say. Sometimes what we are going through makes no sense and we cannot see how it will end, if ever, but just like David God asks the same of us, and this takes faith. We are choosing to take the only life we have and say, “Here, God, I know You gave me this life so I am giving it back, trusting that You have a plan for me. You know best and I trust You.” That is what David did. He gave his life to God and said, “I trust in you, my God.”All I know, based on my relationship with the Lord, is that I can trust Him. He has brought me through before and He will do it again.Today, do the same. Choose to trust God with your life. He created you and has a plan for your life. Trust Him.
Have a wonderful day as you choose to trust God with your life.

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him.
If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32.
He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips.
I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS!
I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE!
