We sang “I surrender all” in church on Sunday. It’s exactly what I needed my heart to sing.
I’m working on that whole surrender thing. It’s tough. I want the control.
Isn’t there that story about the monkey with his hand in the jar grasping his treat, but he can’t get the treat out of the jar until he lets go of it?
Me = Monkey.
“All to jesus i surrender
All to him i freely give;
I will ever love and trust him,
In his presence daily live.
I surrender all, i surrender all;
All to thee, my blessed Savior,
I surrender all.
All to jesus, i surrender,
Lord, i give myself to thee;
Fill me with thy love and power,
Let thy blessing fall on me.”
