Commit; Submit and Surrender Your will to the Lord’s Will
I first began to Commit, submit and surrender my will to the Lord’s Will; because I realized that I was out of control.
It was not until I committed; submitted and surrendered my will to His Will (The Lord). That I noticed that there was control in my life. I just believe that when I surrendered my Heart the rest of me followed,
On this journey; lip service does not work. I have discovered. It is all or nothing.
When; I was growing up. My Father was out of the picture.
My Mother was tired.
I have come to realize that if the Lord had not been with me; I would really, really be a mess!!
My children kept me anchored,
In all my issues; the Lord knew that I was committed to raising them.
I would be concerned about me later.
Note: When you have children; I believe that It is my responsibility to raise them to the best of my ability. My first responsibility is teaching them about the Lord.
1 Corinthians 10:11: Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.
I believe that it is the father’s responsibility to be head of the house. If he does not take heed to his responsibility. I would not let my children grow up not knowing about the Lord.
Ephesians 6:4: And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
We went to church almost everyday, I fell asleep on the church bench when I was little.
My children have as well. If they do not follow the Lord; it is their choice,
It will not be that I did not take them to church.
Was I perfect? No. Was my parents? No? Are any of us down here on earth? No.
Just; be sure that you don’t grow up; doing the same thing; that you accused your parent/parents parents of doing.
it is challenging not to do what we have been taught; when we have been bor again:
2 Corinthians 5:17: Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
It is no more about your biological parents; they have done what they could. It is now between you and the Lord.
I have to admit; the love of a son and the love of a daughter are different. I appreciate and I am thankful for all of my children’s love.
When; my will is committed to His Will:
I make better choices.
I think more clearly.
I can see more clearly
My time is God’s time.
God’s will; God’s Way, in His time:
Ecclesiastes 3:11: He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.
1 Corinthians 7:37: Nevertheless he that standeth stedfast in his heart, having no necessity, but hath power over his own will, and hath so decreed in his heart that he will keep his virgin, doeth well.
