"At fifteen life had taught me undeniably that surrender, in its place, was as honorable as resistance..."
I've alway been a fighter. I learned to fight...to defend myself..to stay alive...pushing back against those who hurt me. I fought hard...never giving up...never giving in. I focused my enegry on staying one step ahead....always fighting for that elusive freedom.
I learned, too, to fight to get what I needed. Living on the streets....having little money....and few things....I learned to be quick...fast...and focused. I still have that fighter mentality....I feel it inside...that drive...that pull to hold on....to not let go at all costs....that fight that feels like life and death...
Surrender. That hasn't been in my vocabulary. Surrender - Give in. Give up. - Surrender - Letting go of fear....trusting.
I've decided....I'm surrendering....to Him who took the brokeness in my heart....and freed me. The price? His life for mine. Surrender used to feel like defeat but now I know - surrendering to Him....is being a winner.
All to Jesus I surrender...all to Him I freely give.....
