Are you worried? Are you scared? Are you unsure of what the future holds? Are you feeling uncomfortable with everything that is going on in the world? Well me too. Or at least I was…
Well when I surrendered my life to Jesus, it changed everything. My whole perspective on life changed. My purpose was finally found, my whole body just felt completely filled with love, joy, and peace. I did the most bravest thing I have ever done by surrendering my life to Jesus, and it was completely worth it. Why? I am going to tell you.
John 14:6 “Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me”.
My Brave Testimony:
About 5 years ago I read a book in my bible study group called “Be Brave” just hearing that at the age of 18 I had no idea what that meant because I knew I wasn’t brave. I let people walk all over me. I was a doormat to my friends and family and most importantly I was a slave to sin. I was so sick and tired of feeling like a slave and just burdened by my problems until I truly found Jesus when I hit rock bottom a year later. I wanted to pursue Jesus but I also wanted my own plan for my life. I remember crying and balling my eyes out on my bed begging God to save me from this life I created. I turned on my worship music and the song ” I surrender” started to play and then I realized what I had to do. I had to surrender.
Once I surrender, I felt free. Free from my sin, free from the mess I caused myself and free from the enemy. The weight was lifted off my shoulders and put on Jesus.
Matthew 11:28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
From that moment on I was able to be brave. Not because I trusted myself or anyone else, but because I put my hope, trust and life into Jesus Christ. It was not easy surrendering. Sometimes I still have a hard time surrendering in certain areas of my life, but I do it anyway. You see being brave doesn’t mean you are in control or that you are strong. Being brave means putting control back in Gods hands because HE IS STRONG, HE IS LOVE and He has a plan for your life better than you can ever dream of. I encourage you today to surrender. Not one area of your life but your whole life. Being brave means to put your trust in the one who is Brave and He will make you brave!
