To be seated in heavenly places with Jesus means entering into His rest and giving up control of everything we do not have control over…then, by constantly using our faith, the life of Christ will be released deep inside us, and the resting place of God’s love will become the very source and root of our lives. Sweet beautiful surrender…that’s where I want to be, nothing is worth holding on to if it isn’t part of His plan and purpose for our lives. Our displacement pushes us into our purpose. I will never fit because I am not at home, not yet. So, today again I surrender with a contrite heart and a longing soul for all things good…
The ultimate solution and answer that the process of awakening leads to anyway, is to save yourself years of suffering by surrendering to the Truth right now and let Him take over your life. Everything falls into place in the moment of surrender, and, that’s when freedom and peace comes and takes over your whole being.
Photographing young people is by far the most exhilarating thing to do, they have little inhibition and lots of spontaneity. Surrendering is not an issue with them, it comes naturally, and all I have to do is be “present” and capture those moments.
Surrendering, relinquishing control, letting go, letting God, doesn’t have very positive connotations in our society today. It doesen’t mean “be irresponsible” but it does mean handing your life over to God and trusting Him for the outcome after you have done what He has placed on your heart to do. It then takes more strength than one can even imagine, surrendering to exactly where we are and knowing that everything is totally the way He intended it to be. Carrying worry, ingratitude, or fear around with us is such a horrible weight to carry, and gravity is a pull that causes us to stay where we started, we need to break that law…
You know you’re surrendered to God when you rely on God to work things out instead of trying to manipulate others, force your agenda, and control the situation. You let go and let God work. You don’t have to always be in charge. Instead of trying harder, you trust more.
Walking with God is not about information or any kind of activity, it’s about living in the presence of the One that made you His dwelling place. Our spiritual wellbeing depends upon rightly prioritised relationships. God wants us all to grow up into the fulllness of Christ.
When we surrender we enter into the realm of the miraculous, that is when God can truly move in our lives.
Surrendering our lives to God, is like entering His Kingdom here on earth. We become people with a vision of the future. Vision is the lens that interprets the events of our life, the way we view people and our concept of God.
Surrender yourself to the Lord, and wait patiently for him. Psalm 37:7
