Surrender in 2013

20:32:00 Karen Li 0 Comments

Surrender. Surrender. Surrender. I think this is something I have always been struggling with. I have recently been reading the account of Rebecca and Isaac in Genesis 24:1-67. This young lady was approached one day by the servant of Abraham (whom she has never met) and was asked to return with him and be married with the master's son. It's not as common these days to agree to blind marriages, but if I was her, would I be as willing to hand over my future to an unknown "master"?

But God doesn't want to be our part-time master, he wants to be our ONLY master. So in 2013, can I focus more on Him and less on me?

This week's free song from Klove is White Flag by Chris Tomlin


Verse One
_The battle rages on
As storms and tempests roar
We cannot win this fight
Inside our rebel hearts

Laying your body down
You took our rightful place
