Surrendering is synonymous with quitting, weakness, and giving up. When someone is bigger or stronger; we surrender. When we are down, defeated, and when we have lost all hope; we surrender.
It’s not an easy thing to do.
No one wants to do it.
We want to be in control.
We want to do it our way.
We want things to go our way.
We want to call the shots.
We really do not know how to surrender.
We find that our greatest moments of strength come when we surrender to God.
Surrender not because we are good, but because God is good.
Steve Angrisano and Sarah Hart write in their song “Sweet Redeemer”:
