A few weeks ago I had the honor of speaking at the women’s breakfast for my home church. The Lord placed it on my heart to speak on surrender and how many times we want to avoid surrendering to God because we feel like we’re losing. Losing control, what we want, and our plans. However, in today’s video I’m sharing how this thinking is completely opposite. When we live a surrendered life we realize we are already victorious in Christ and we will never be left empty handed no matter how much we give up for God. Enjoy!

PRAY

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for the gift of your precious Son Jesus Christ. Thank You for everything you sacrificed so that I may know You and the love You have for me. I pray my life may be a pleasing sacrifice to You all the days of my life. In Jesus Christ Name I pray. Amen.

REFLECT

What does surrendering to God look like for you this week?
