Surrender

"God is ready to assume full responsibility for the life wholly yielded to Him." - Andrew Murray


"Lord, I give up all my own plans and purposes, all my own desires and hopes, and accept Thy will for my life. I give myself, my time, my all, utterly to Thee to be Thine forever. Fill me and seal me with Thy Holy Spirit. Use me as Thou wilt, send me where Thou wilt, work out Thy whole will in my life at any cost, now and forever." - The daily prayer of Betty Stam, missionary and eventual martyr in China

These quotes were found while reading A Woman After God's Own Heart by Elizabeth George

Going through difficulty has shown me just how much I am relying on God--I have to complete surrender to Him--or else I will fail and struggle even more

Amazing and inspiring quote...despite any of the struggles in life, the amount of peace that I get from Him is indescribable once I give it up to Him! Praise God for that! :)

Shalom!

What a great post! I am going through something hard right now, and I decided to sit down for a while and read blogs I visit, and there was this post! Thanks for posting it!
