“Abba, Father, all things are possible to you. Take this cup away from me, but not what I will but what you will.” (Mark 14:36)
I have never found it easy to give up control of my life, my family or my future. Yet, that’s exactly what Jesus asks me to do. He wants me to trust Him in the same way that He trusted the Father. He wants me to surrender my life to Him.
Here’s what I wrote in Give Up Worry For Good…
If asked, many of us will insist that we have surrendered our lives to Christ, but our actions tell a different story. Jesus gives us the perfect example of someone who has truly surrendered to the will of God. Observing and imitating his actions is the best way to ensure that we are truly doing what God wants. It’s also the safest and surest way to find peace.
When we worry, we attempt to control the uncontrollable. In order to break free from worry, we have to learn to surrender to the One who is ultimately in control. All this week, we’ll work on surrendering our lives to the Lord.
