2015 word + verse.

my word for 2015 is SURRENDER.

in 2015, i SURRENDER all of my life to Jesus. all of my heart and my mind. all my dreams and desires. the pains and heartaches, the mistakes and failures. all to Jesus i surrender. i give every piece of my life to Him.  

in 2015, i SURRENDER to His will over my plans. His love over my feelings. His grace over my disappointment. the truth of His Word over the lies of the world. His spirit over my flesh.

"if anyone would come after Me, let him deny himself & take up his cross daily & follow Me." - Jesus.

this is more than just a goal. i say that i love Jesus, that i follow Him - but half-hearted attempts and words fall flat. i want to live in complete surrender. i'm not truly living life abundantly if it's not rooted in Jesus. He took His cross and gave His life for me. even while i was a dirty, rotten sinner. each and every day, in the mundane, everyday, adventurous, + happy moments, i will take up my cross and follow the Way, the Truth, and the Life.  

surrendering myself to Jesus, to His will, means He will work through me - for His glory. for my good. i don't know what the year holds. i don't even have a clue where i will be a month from now. but i give it all to Him.

all to Jesus i surrender.
