Thankful Thursday - Surrender


“If you surrender to the wind, you can ride it." Toni Morrison. 

I was a fighter. Still am. But I've learned the key to winning sometimes is to let go....surrender. And not just to surrender to anything or anyone but to surrender my will for His. 

I love nature. I love hiking in the hills or sitting down by the lake. There I've learned to listen...to hear His voice. He is the whisper in the wind, the voice in my heart. His whisper has became my hope. That hope has became my anchor. Grateful for... 

-the translation of my book into Russian is done. It humbles me how He's using the little bits of my life to give others hope. 
-running a group today...to give back...to give hope. 
-asked to ghostwrite someone's book. Won't happen for a couple of months but she believes in me and in my ability to tell her story. 
-mostly for Him and grateful for life and purpose and joy and peace....

Happy Thursday, Guys.....

Nikki, I think letting go has to be one of the most difficult things to do... it is about trusting Heavenly Father... it really about trusting that the right things happening... I have never been good at it but I am working on it, I want to be better xox <3

Things actually happens after you've surrendered everything to His will. At least that's how it is in my experience.

Have a fantastic weekend. And congrats on the translation.

Nature is a beautiful thing and at times we are so fortunate to be able to be ot and about sharing the beauty as you so rightly said "I love nature. I love hiking in the hills or sitting down by the lake." Peaceful, special times.
