A Question of Surrender

“God, what is it that you have for my life?”

That right there is a question of surrender. A question that tells God we are coming to Him with open hearts ready for Him to do His will. It’s a scary question to ask because many times we don’t like the answer. But take comfort in this: God loves us so much more than we can ever comprehend or imagine so why in the world would His plan for our lives not be something so much better than we could ever create? Honestly, while asking that does make me a little nervous, it mostly makes me excited because thinking about doing God’s will makes my heart flutter with joy. The Author, Creator, and Lord of the Universe cares about me and has a plan for my life. I mean, how cool is that?! C.S. Lewis said it best:

“I would rather be what God chose to make me than the most glorious creature that I could think of; for to have been born in God’s thought, and then made by God is the dearest, grandest, and most precious thing in all thinking.”

It’s time for me to ask my question of surrender. God, what is it that you have for my life? Because I don’t want to do anything less than that.

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send?” And I answered, “Here am I. Send me!”
