“Laying your life down in tender surrender before the Lord will bring life, prosperity, and honor as your reward.” (Proverbs 22: 4, the Passion Translation)
As we humbly surrender our egos and the lives they want to create for us, we discover what’s really going on. When we let go of the mistaken and limiting view of ourselves and our possibilities, we can yield to the magnificent experience that our loving Creator has designed.
It can be difficult to give up the control, to release a sense of our own responsibility and authority over things. But as we do, we feel the sweet relief of this tender surrender. This gentle giving over to God feels right and freeing. Laying down this false sense of a material life that we own and control, takes off the weight of living and makes life a joy.
For a surrender to God is not a loss. It is gain. We have given up the fight on the wrong side—the one that is small, anxious, and limited—to be on the winning side, where we belong. We see and feel the blessings that have always been ours to know, including a sense of trust in God, integrity of being, and a desire to share the riches we are gaining with others as well.
