The Most Amazing Life!

772289_51863461-1

If you want to experience the greatest possible life – I’m going to share the secret with you…

100%  submission to Christ

Be willing to say to God:

I am FULLY Yours.

I hold back NOTHING from You.

I give You all that I have, all that I am, all of my possessions, all of my income, all of my career, all of my marriage, children, family and friends, my entire future.

I only want to know You more and to be full of Your Spirit.

I will find total contentment in You alone.  Nothing else can satisfy me.

Show me EVERY trace of sin in my life so I can repent and be made right with You.

I delight in obeying You and living by Your Word!

Give me ears to hear Your voice and let me be totally open to every Word of Life You have for me.

I want Your will, not my own will.  I sacrifice my will, my plans, my wisdom, my desires and my “rights” to You.

I wait patiently and expectantly before You.

If You want me to wait right here until I am 80 years old – I accept that.  If that will bring You glory – I am in 100%!

If You want me to move or change careers – I accept that.

If You want me to give up all I own and give to the poor – I accept that.

Any sacrifice You might ask me to make is nothing compared to the treasure of having You in my life.  I hold all things except for You very loosely in my hands.

I want only Your full and perfect will for my life.

Use me however You will.

I desire more than anything for my life to bring the greatest possible glory to You – no matter what the cost.

If I must suffer – I accept that from Your hand.  Only be beside me and allow me to abide in Your love and presence.

If I must be persecuted for my faith in You – I accept that and rejoice in it – that You might allow me to share in Your sufferings!

Thank You that You will never leave me or forsake me.

I want to hunger deeply for Your presence and Your Word.  I HAVE to make time for You!  I can’t live without You!  I NEED You, Lord!

I want to become exactly who You want me to be.  Change me!  Make me more and more like Jesus!

Use me – I am Your humble servant.

I can do nothing apart from You.

I depend completely upon Your power in my life.

You ARE my Life.  Nothing matters to me except for You.

Thank You for all You have done for me already.  I trust You with my future.  I can’t wait to see what You have in store for me!

    1. Paule,
      This is something that can’t be achieved by “trying harder” – it comes only as we learn to use our “trust and faith muscles.” It comes through hashing through our deepest fears and deciding that we believe God and His Word and hanging all our faith in Him and obeying Him even when it doesn’t make sense to us or to the world.

      I pray that you might be able to cast all your anxiety on Him – for He cares for you! 🙂

      Much love to you!

  1. Amen this site is awesome! Thank you April for saying yes to God through the toughtimes, this wisdom only comes from the tested and tried. I know ur not perfect, but u have an obedient heart and putting works with your faith and that’s the difference. I can learn from this because yout spirit is from God. I pray that you continue to put God first bringing glory to Him and that He continue to strengthen you and bless u and your family!

  2. Beautiful, thank you 🙂 I was thinking about this topic just this week and how true it is… the fully surrendered life really is incredible. I’ve never been so happy, so joyful, so at peace, as I have this past year as I’ve been learning to completely surrender everything I am and have to God. And this approach removes all worry and fear too. I wouldn’t want to live any other way.

    If it helps anyone else – each morning when I pray I re-surrender my life to God and basically say “God I surrender everything to you, I love you with all my heart, mind, and strength, and I give you my heart, my soul, my mind, my body, my time, my money, my dignity, my dreams and fears, I just put my life in your beautiful big hands because I know that’s the safest and best place I can be. I love you so much God and I trust you implicitly. I know you will always take care of me, and no matter what happens you have my best interests at heart.”

    🙂 xo

    1. Harmony,

      I love this! It is very similar to what I do each day. Presenting myself a living sacrifice and offering myself totally to Jesus. “I am fully Yours, Lord! I want Your will, not mine.” And I give Him EVERYTHING. It was so scary at first a few years ago. But now, I see that the things that seemed like “sacrifices” at first – were not sacrifices at all – and that this is the path to abundant life, joy, peace, lightness of heart and total contentment and satisfaction.

      You are a blessing! Thank you for sharing! 🙂

      1. Thanks 🙂 Yes you’ve pretty much summed up right there why the surrendered life is so incredible! And yes it was indeed scary to begin with, but now it feels so natural it would feel scary to me NOT to be living this way.

        Weirdly enough this issue of surrender seems to be the one most people struggle with, I think because it is so contrary to our human nature and our want / need to have control over our lives. I believe it also comes down to knowing God and knowing beyond a shadow of a doubt that He is good and that He loves us so much, and that takes time to discover that. I just always think it’s a shame as I see people struggling with things I know they could just let God do for them, or help them with, but as I keep reminding myself everyone must make their own journey in their own time 🙂

        Thanks again for your wonderful blog.

        1. Songberry,

          Exactly! The truth is that the scariest place to be is trusting ourselves. The most wonderful place to be is in the arms of God.

          Our sisters definitely need our prayers!

My grandmother is on hospice and won't be with us much longer (11-30-16). I will get to comments when I am able to but I need to be with family right now. Thanks for understanding.
