Surrender...hmm..that's possibly the sweetest & most difficult thing one can do. The majority of this post is the lyrics of a song by Barlowgirl. I downloaded the song 1day even though at that point I had never heard it before. The 1st two days I played the song I thought it sounded nice but I never really listened 2 the words. The third time I ever played the song ( which was the first time I ACTUALLY listened to the words) I ended up in tears instantly. The words sounded a little tooo familiar. They were my EXACT thoughts & God's exact words. Take a look at the words. They mirror the thoughts I once had. The sections in bold are the parts that stood out even more to me.God calls us all to surrender..our lives, our will, our ALL. No matter what your plans are, TRUST ME, God's plans are greater..they are flawless; they are complete.My dreams no longer define me. I am only what He says I am. Take the time to search your lives & surrender anything that you are still holding onto..You won't regret it 4 There is no dissapointment IN God. Love u all!

"Surrender" by Barlowgirl

My hands hold safely to my dreams
Clutching tightly not one has fallen
So many years I've shaped each one
Reflecting my heart showing who I am

Now you're asking me to show
What I'm holding oh so tightly
Can't open my hands can't let go
Does it matter?
Should I show you?
Can't you let me go?

"Surrender, surrender" you whisper gently
You say I will be free
I know but can't you see?
My dreams are me. My dreams are me

You say you have a plan for me
And that you want the best for my life
Told me the world had yet to see
What you can do with one
That's committed to Your calling
I know of course what I should do
That I can't hold these dreams forever
If I give them now to You
Will You take them away forever?
Or can I dream again?

"Surrender, surrender" you whisper gently
You say I will be free
I know but can't you see?
My dreams are me. My dreams are me


  1. Whoa - I think God has this conversation w/ so many of us and the vast majority are too busy fighiting it to listen to what he has to say.

  2. so true. I like the name u have up -Emancipated. It says alot.
    I have been fighting it too 4 years & the scariest part is that sometimes I was conviced that I was not fighting..

  3. I love that song!! The first time I heard literally I was brought to my knees and just cried because I realized how I had not surrendered everything to Him. I think surrender is something we have to continually do each and every day. Thanks for sharing. Blessing to ya'!! have a wonderful week!

  4. wow..that's all I can say...just like everything that I am going throught right now..just surrender to Jesus!

  5. Hey I just saw your comments. Mt. Zion International School of Ministry is in Grantville Pennsylvania. Here is the link to their website I think you would like it. The sole purpose there is to get a more intimate relationship with God.

    And yes God's love is enough right now! It's just hard some times! But God is there every step of the way! Thanks for commenting! :) God Bless

  6. I understand. your welcome :)

  7. If u don't go there, is there anywhere else you'd like to go?
