Miracle of Surrender 12/31/2020

“On the Miracle of Surrender

God knows our crooked places that need to be made straight, the wounds in our hearts that fester for years unhealed, the broken pieces of our lives that seem beyond repair. And He who is the author of miracles has infinite desire as well as power to heal them all.

At a certain point, it doesn’t really matter so much how we got to be a certain way. Until we admit our character defects—and take responsibility for the fact that regardless of where we got them, they are ours now—God Himself has no power to heal them. 

We can talk to a therapist for hours about how our relationship with Mom or Dad made us develop a certain behavioral characteristic, but that of itself will not make it go away. 

Naming it, surrendering it to God, and asking Him to remove it—that’s the miracle of personal transformation. It won’t go away in a moment, necessarily, but its days are numbered. The medicine is in your psychic bloodstream.”
