Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. – Romans 12:2
Sometimes it just feel better to do it out way, or the way it’s being done by everybody else.
Until it doesn’t.
What I have found to be consistently necessary in addition to refusing to let your fears paralyze you, and the need to see yourself the way God sees you, is the act of surrender.
By surrender, I mean accepting that your vision, your dream, your purpose and the plan that is necessary to live and realize it is not your own. Yes, you were created and chosen for such a time as this, but we are only able fully live out that which we were created and chosen to do when we do it according to God’s plan.
It may feel stupid at first…but surrender anyway.
The truth is, Gods plan is better than your good plan.
Where is God calling you to surrender your plan for His?
