Surrendering To God & Finding Freedom: An Introduction
The word, surrender, isn’t exactly high on anyone’s favorite word list. You know what I’m talking about. Instantly it conjures images of white flags and laying down of rights. Who wants that? Exactly no one wants that. If you’re an American (or perhaps just a human – I can’t be certain with only a 40 year western cultural experience to draw upon) it goes against every grain to imagine a world where surrender might actually be a good thing. But what if it could be? What if the good or bad of surrender had nothing to do with the actual definition of the word, but in who it is that we’re surrendering to?
These are the questions we’ll ask ourselves as we walk through my first EVER series, “Surrendering To God and Finding Freedom.”
I’m not sure where you’re at. Or even what brings you to this site. Maybe you’re a loyal friend who signed up for automatic updates (and for that I thank you kindly) or maybe you don’t know me at all and you’re not even sure you believe all this mumbo-jumbo about God or surrendering to anything – ever. That’s ok. I hope you’ll find the words typed on this page to be a road-map to helping you figure things out. Whatever the case, I’m glad you’re here. Will you come with me on this journey? Any good road trip is always more fun with friends! I’ll choose a good play list – if you bring the snacks. ;)
Just kidding – I’ll choose a good playlist either way.
Here we go…
