I Surrender It All


For me to type that title and mean it takes ALOT!!!! At church Sunday, the preacher said some people say they believe in God but act like they don't. Where is your faith!!?? People are always trying to do things by themselves. Man, if that isn't me!!! Anyway...


This passage REALLY touched my heart today. To know that no matter what I am going through, it is to make me stronger and a better person in God's eyes. To let go of the control i think i have and live as He wants me too. Thank you Lord for this crazy transitional period. I am smiling amidst the tears. :)

My brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of any kind, consider it nothing but joy, because you know that the testing of your faith produces endurance; and let endurance have its full effect, so that you may be mature and complete, lacking in nothing.

If any of you is lacking in wisdom, ask God, who gives to all generously and ungrudgingly, and it will be given you.

But ask in faith, never doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind; for the doubter, being double-minded and unstable in every way, must not expect to receive anything from the Lord.


~James 1:2-8


My heart feels so much joy today. I am so blessed. Please share any testimonies, thanks.

"But ask in faith, never doubting"
AMEN. You have to believe that God hears your prayer. Faith is so important.

Thanks. I needed to read that. I'm going through something in my life right now and sometimes I don't see the light at the end of the tunnel.

"But ask in faith, never doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind;" That's the second time this week I've seen this verse. Maybe God's trying to tell me something.
