Some days are just laced with too many face palm moments to keep track of … (do I hear an amen?).

We all have them and would rather they be past events rather than present ones.

As I drove down the road, rain pelting everything in it’s reach, I finally went from face palm to arms raised in frustration … forfeit.

I had reached the stage of frustration when I am finally able to ‘hear’ that still and small voice.

Later that evening I discovered a song by Matt Redman, called Gracefully Broken .

here I am
arms wide open

pouring out my life 
gracefully broken
all to Jesus now
holding nothing back
I surrender

Surrender …

Surrender is often viewed as giving up, giving in to the inevitability of the events of the situation we are currently experiencing. That does not have to be the only view of surrender.

To surrender can also be to yield, or hand over, not as an act of defeat, but as an acknowledgement that what we are holding so tightly will be better dealt with and cared for in the hands of another. In this we are acknowledging, not our defeat, but the power we have access to for all we love and hold dear if we hold it with our arms wide open.

“All to Jesus now
Holding nothing back

I surrender”
