In the beginning it was hard
It was hard to let go

In the beginning I wanted
I wanted my way more than God's way

In the beginning I resisted
I resisted change
But wanted my life to change

After awhile I realized
I realized God had a plan

After awhile accepted
I accepted the sacrifice

After awhile I submitted
I submitted my thoughts, and actions to God

In the beginning it was hard
It was hard to change

In the beginning it was slow
Slowly I I began to act and think differently

During my submition I realized
I realized through submitting to God
I had become a better person

In the end it was hard
It was hard to admit
The person I once was

In the end I wanted
I wanted to please God
More than I wanted to please myself

In the end I resisted
I resisted my own flesh
More than I resisted God's plan

And in the end I realized
I realized I wanted THE LIFE
THE LIFE God died to give me

Now I have accepted I have accepted the behavior
That allows surrendering to God

Now I know the meaning of freedom
I know that freedom comes with a price

And now I know the difference
The difference between
Living in bondage and living in freedom!

I have been submitting to God since Jan. '09. I has been the hardest thing I have ever done, but the most rewarding thing I have ever done in my whole life. You see when you to surrender to God He brings blessings into your life. Things start to happen to you and it laterally blows you away. The power you feel, the peace you experience, the magnitude of life changing events that surround is totally unbelievable. Funny thing about God, just when you think you are starting to get close to getting really good at surrendering to Him, He puts you in a situation where you need to surrender in a different way. Now, some people may get mad about this. Some people may think, you mean, just when you start getting good at surrendering He makes it harder for you to surrender the next time? What's up this that? But don't you see, that's the beauty of it all. God never allows us to quit growing. God doesn't allow us to stop maturing. Through this constant growth we always have that opportunity to become more and more intimate with God.

I am no where close to being perfect at this. Let me tell you at times I have failed miserably. I think about some of the things I have done and said this year and I am put to shame. Yet, there have been other times God has been glorified through me, and I am very pleased.

I will need prayer always, and I ask for your prayers as I live my life surrendering my thoughts, actions, and life to God.

Thank you
