I have an online friend, Alece. She has a wonderful blog, Grit and Glory. I know she and I differ in some areas but, she challenges me. Confession: Sometimes when I see a blog she’s written in my blog reader…I don’t read it for a bit. It’s sad I know. I’d rather hold one to some sin that God wants me to deal with, than to read and be convicted. Here is a quote from a recent post on Grit.
“I’ve been denying myself to follow others. To simply be seen, rather than invisible. To receive love. To avoid rejection. And in doing so, I handed the reins of my life over to everyone around me. I surrendered the control of my life to others.”
I keep going back and reading this post. I could’ve written it myself. This is me. I don’t often admit it but, it’s me. All I want is a surrendered life to Christ and it seems to escape me. I am a living sacrifice as God’s child. I just seem to keep moving off the alter!
How do you give it all to Christ? What steps do you take to surrender each day to Him?
