I have learned many lessons lately and one that stands out is how important it is to maintain a posture of surrender rather than striving. Surrender doesn’t mean sit back and do nothing, in fact, you will get more done (in God’s strength) than you ever imagined.
In a world of planners and to-do lists and folks always trying to control their lives and strive for greater achievement, it is actually comforting to know every detail is controlled by God and ordained before time began. Simple living is much easier to reach in a life surrendered to God.
