It’s not about giving up or bowing down. It’s about holding on to the knowledge that something bigger and more powerful than you is at work beneath the surface of your experience, and that it will take you exactly where you need to be.
Now, in hard times, surrendering is probably the greatest challenge you will encounter because it is hard to accept uncertainty. But that’s the point. You don’t know what’s to come but you must know that whatever happens, you will be okay.
It has been when I have struggled the hardest to not let go that the greatest blessings of my life have come into play once I did let go.
Take a deep look; maybe it’s time you let go and let real blessings flow into your life.
