GET READY SET; SURRENDER
Surrender is a simple word that has deep and complex actions associated with it. Recently in rural Southeast Louisiana a wanted man created fear, frustration, and fascination when he eluded police for several days. Citizens pleaded with him to surrender and yet this man after various reported sightings just vanished like a vapor. Finally, law enforcement were successful and apprehended this wanted fugitive. While most of us are not wanted fugitives from the law we need to throw up our hands toward the heavens and say I QUIT, I GIVE UP, I SURRENDER. I am tired of disguising my emotions, taking on a new identity, covering the stains of life by rearranging things and engaging in covert operations. Stop and say this is it, enough already and simply just surrender. It is not until we surrender that we can start to have the life God created for us.
