The human mind plans the way, but the Lord directs the steps. - Proverbs 16:9
I’ve been thinking a lot about the word “surrender” lately. To be honest, I didn’t choose to think about it; it’s not an easy concept for a girl who likes to call the shots.
But God has a way of making His message clear, especially when I “shush” it away a few times.
In the last several months, He’s directed me numerous times to surrender. From plans I had, to dreams I thought He gave me, I’ve had to stop moving forward, quiet my thoughts and surrender each and every one to Him. I literally picture myself in front of His throne as I lay down each thing. I’m choosing to surrender it all, even when it hurts, because I have confidence in my good Father. If He tells me to lay it down, I know it’s because He loves me and has something so much better for me down the road.
