Surrender. One of the toughest things I have ever gone through was to give up and surrender. I always wanted to be my own person. To live my life my way. As smart and independent as I thought I was, I couldn’t find my way out of paper bag. Even now, I sometimes think I can do it myself, just to mess up anything. God had to convince me that only He knew the right way. I had and still do have to place my life in His hands. When I do, God shows me a better way, the right way. Many are the paths that lead to destruction, but there is only one way to God. So, each day I surrender my life to God, because every day is new. I die daily, so God can live through me in a lost and dying world. Surrender is never easy, but is necessary for my survival. This is the reality of Christianity.
