I jumped into this challenge, at the last minute, wondering how anyone would ever be able to write daily posts for an entire month all on the same subject. All I knew is that I was being prompted to try this... and that surrender was the topic.
Surrender has never come easy to me. I fight... a lot. However, in this journey of living a surrendered life, I'm learning that freedom is in the surrender... joy is in the journey... and a life surrendered is a life used for His glory.
This month of 31 Days of Surrender has been a month of life lessons taught to my heart by my Rabbi Teacher. There have been things I thought I would certainly write about and things that I have been hesitant to mention. Somewhere along the way, though, I think I even surrendered this challenge. I found Him directing my words and posts. I felt Him leading me when and what to write. I followed Him as He taught me. He's been gentle and kind and taught me through humor and heartache. I'm learning that it is not a 31 day kind of lesson... its a life long journey of daily surrendering all that I have to Him.
Monday won't be the end of the journey for me... instead, it will be the beginning of surrendering the rest of my life.
