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 you......it 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.
