The Right Way to Surrender


Recently I have been facing a lot more obstacles than I thought I would. I realized that a lot of the obstacles I was facing was because of fear. I have been fearful of the unknown and I was upset by these circumstances.

These obstacles were part of the reason I haven’t been posting recently. I didn’t feel like I could encourage others when I couldn’t even encourage myself.

So as a result I started to have doubts. I started to doubt that God’s plan is always good. It’s hard for me to even admit this to you guys.

A couple of months ago I decided to surrender my plans, and also decided that I was going to work on my pride and fear. Even though I was so eagerly trying to combat these things I still struggled.

In the past couple of days I realized that I have been working on combating these things the wrong way. I kept trying to control these things in my own power. I wasn’t really seeking God’s help in these areas.

This past weekend I feel like God finally got through to me and opened my eyes to these issues in my life. I decided that all the self-help articles weren’t going to help if I wasn’t willing to go to God first with the struggles. Though I’m still struggling with some of these circumstances I decided I’m going to seek God’s help as my first priority.
