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.
