Why Surrender is NOT a Four-Letter Word
  
 For so long I could not see that my stubborn resistance to God was the cause of my pain and emptiness.  I could not hear His voice over the  thunder of abuse and sinfulness. The irony
of believing I was controlling my life was that it was totally out-of -control!  When I became tired of the  lies and weary from the pain, I found myself at the foot of the cross.  
There I learned the meaning of surrender based on love, and the gentle hand  of God began healing my brokenness. 

 I realized surrender didn't mean giving in to the bullies in my life.  It didn't give someone else the upper hand or add to the shame I already  labored under. What I found instead was: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23). That is the basis of all I share on this Website and in my blog posts.
