I surrender

Friday, February 18, 2011

There is no love sweeter than the love you pour on me. There is no song sweeter than the song you sing to me.
There is no place that I would rather be.
Then here at your feet laying down everything.
All to you I surrender everything every part of me.
All to you I surrender all of my dreams, all of me.

If worship's like perfume, I will pour mine out on you.
For there is none as deserving of my love like you.
So take my hand and draw me into you.
I want to be swept away lost in love for you.

There is no turning back Ive made up my mind Im giving
all of my life this time. Your love makes it worth it all.

Lyrics by Kim Walker

When I first heard this song it dropped me to my knees because it made me think that surrendering to the Lord has been all worth it. From where the Lord brought me till now is all because I surreneder it all to him I have no regrets I am the happiest I have ever been. Im doing things that I never thought I would be doing. To surrender my life and my way of doing things to his way of doing things and giving him complete control over my life has been the best decision I have ever made. The Lord loves us so much and if we can just capture how much he loves us it will change your life.

To be in his will and not my own to give him glory in all I do has blessed my life more than I can say. Its not easy to let go of your life but if you allow the Lord to do his perfect work in you it will change you from within.

Philippians 1:6
"being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."

Philippians 2:13
"for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose."

To think that I am now 260lbs lighter all to the glory of the Lord.

To think that I am now a personal trainer all to the glory of the Lord.

To think when I thought my life was over he restored in me a new life a new beginning one that I can now live in true happiness and joy. I take no credit for the things I have or things I have done I give it all to the Lord. He gets all praise all honor and all glory.

I come before you Lord with a thankful heart a heart that now knows how much you love me. A heart that has been changed by you, a life that is now filled with hope where once it was hopeless. All to you Lord I surrender it all you are so worth it. In Jesus Name I Pray Amen.

Jesus first

    I've read this blog before and thought I'd commented on it, but evidently not. You always inspire me to keep giving Him more and more of me.
    Thank you!
    I love you, sweet Sister!

    I really enjoyed talking to you on the phone last night. God has blessed me with your friendship and although I have told you countless times, I can't help to continue to tell you how much I appreciate you in my life!

    I thank God for the work which He has done through you, and I praise God for the work which He will continue to do through YOU!

    Thank you so much for sharing here, Carol. You continually inspire me on so many levels. Free-falling into the everlasting arms of our Beloved is the only way to live. When I look at your life, it reaffirms to me that He will complete the good work He's begun in me, too. Your testimony brought this song to mind. There's no add a link feature in blogs (though I do ask our SP techs to create one from time to time), so it won't hyperlink, but this is an amateur version of "Where You Are" that I love. It speaks my heart and I know it speaks yours, as well. Bless you, sister!

    Amen! All that we have and all that we are belong to the Lord. The sooner we realize that and give ourselves over to His will, the better for us. It's a walk of faith . . . and we don't like to live by faith, we like to be able to see, feel and touch. But, when we surrender, His plan is far better than anything we could ever do! Thank you for sharing! Beautiful words.
