  1. Surrendering

From the album Love Along The Way

Surrendering to God is one of the hardest things for me to do. I am somewhat of a "control freak." I find myself trying to figure things out on my own. When everything I've done has failed, it's only then that I go to God and ask for help (Of course, after this happens, I realize I should have just gone to Him in the first place). Surrendering is relinquishing control over what we think is ours (our time, our plans, and our possessions). When we surrender our lives to God we acknowledge that all we have actually belongs to Him. It is my responsibility to care for the things God gives to me. I find that when I fully surrender, He helps me let go of what's holding me back. He always knows what is best for my life and He always comes first in my life. Surrendering is easier said than done and I hope this song can be a reminder for you like it is for me.

Lyrics

Surrendering
(Tony Wood, Chad Cates & Chuck Butler)

How could I hold back the smallest part
Of anything I'm holding in my heart
When I've seen who you are
In the light of overwhelming grace
for the matchless glory of your name
I will live my praise

Surrendering everything
Bowing down I am yours to use
Worshiping you my king
Surrendering everything to you

I see you dying on the cross for me
Giving all to set this captive free
Lord I'll follow and believe
So here I am with my arms lifted high
Let me be a living sacrifice
I'm offering my life

Every trophy every crown
Every treasure I lay down
Jesus all I have is yours
Every passion every dream
Every breath you give to me
I'll give to you my Lord

Surrendering, everything
Bowing down I am yours to use
Worshiping you my king
Surrendering everything to you
Oh to you, oh
Oh everything, to you
