Surrendering it All

It’s a crazy thought to give someone else control over our lives…

The way we think, the way we speak, or even how we interact, all ”controlled” by the One who gave it all

This was the hardest thing for me to do – to relinquish me, because I had been taught to be strong, but for all the wrong reasons. I thought it was me against the world, and yet, Jesus showed me that I was made for the world

The ”what if’s” will always keep on coming, and I speak a lot on doubt because that was, and is, the enemy’s plan, but even if the ”what if’s” still keep on coming, why not turn it around to the nature of God…

What if…God encourages me?

What if…God pours out His love

What if…I receive true freedom

What if…

Friends, there will come a time where there is a choice to be made. Some believe it is merely to say the salvation prayer, but if that were the case, why did Jesus command us to ”follow” Him? The choice is ultimately to surrender it all to Jesus

Will we lay down our lives to follow Jesus’ ways? To become more like Him, as we learn about Him. Where, His thoughts become ours.

Because, if we do..if we become anew through the blood of Christ, and follow Him by becoming a Disciple of Jesus’…His ways will become ours, and therefore, the promise found in Ephesians shows us that we will then do the good things that were planned out for us a long time ago

I know for myself, I have seen and done things that I never thought possible, and yet, I know the best is still yet to come – because it’s not about me and the world…it’s about Jesus and I, but through that, I can, and will, change the world with His hope

“He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.”

Ephesians 2:10

My hearts desire is for everyone to have an intimate relationship with Christ. To hear the voice of God and to experience His presence. Also, to help disciple others to discover their purpose within the body of Christ - through the power of the Holy Spirit.

My God-given dream is to break down barriers within life and the Church as a whole to strengthen and develop relationships within every denomination and bring unity - so that we will collectively raise up together and fulfil the Great Commission, within this lifetime.

I am living proof that no matter what your past was or whatever your life has become - God will use you to fulfil what He created you to do, when you step out in obedience and faith.
