surrender


Whenever the insistence is on the point that God answers prayer, we are off the track. The meaning of prayer is that we get hold of God, not of the answer.....Oswald Chamber

The point of the journey is to want what God wants MORE than anything.....Larry Crabb

The great business of life is to glorify God by enjoying him forever. Discord between duty and delight doesn't exist: delight is our duty. ...John Piper Desiring God

Reading Liberated by Submission...

Matthew 6:33 (New International Version) But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

Matthew 6:33 (The Message)Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don't worry about missing out. You'll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.

Matthew 6:33 (New Living Translation)....and he will give you all you need from day to day if you live for him and make the Kingdom of God your primary concern.

What exactly am I wrestling with......surrender......surrender.....

Love it! So true too! People who don't have faith have a hard time with this one. Selfish people! Love God, trust God, thank God. Thanks for the scripture, I don't read enough of my bible, but I should! I have been praying really hard in the morning on my drive to work. I repeat verses over and over again with volume and strength. By the time I get to work, I am like a preacher!

Love OC but then who doens't.
I have heard it said and believe it to be true (don't ask how I know:) that "almost all pain is caused by holding on"......
