To surrender everything to God means saying, “Let Your will be done.” It means trusting that in every situation He knows best. For me, it means giving up all of my hopes, dreams, and fears to Him in prayer- telling Him these things, then bowing before Him and letting Him take them. It is hard not knowing if He will give them back to me. It will be even harder to say, “It is well with my soul,” if God never lets them happen. Although, I am realizing how silly it must look to God that I take these ideas and hopes, make them mine, and then slowly give it back to Him, because it was always His to begin with.
I am a sinner redeemed by Jesus Christ, a writer, a sister, an ice skater, a reader, a college graduate, a watcher, a singer, a creative writing major, a hopeful published author, a collector of sea glass- all to bring glory to my Creator.
