Sweet Surrender

photo

In order to bloom

we must shed 

our dead

leaves

and let them fall at His feet

in sweet

surrender

Like an onion, I feel Him peeling back layers and layers of my “self”… revealing His heart and His desires.  I can so easily get caught up in the moment and get all tangled up in my emotions… I can be soo happy!!!   and then the next moment so frustrated…or excited,  tired, helpless…

And sometimes I fail to remember that I am, in fact, NONE of these things…

I am His

And with each dead leaf that falls, with every moment of surrender- I feel released of the “self” I know all too well.

He must become greater; I must become less  John 3:30

Search me, God, and know my heart;
    test me and know my anxious thoughts.
 See if there is any offensive way in me,
    and lead me in the way everlasting.  Psalm 139
