Surrendering to God
What is surrender? I equate it with being a marionette and the puppetmaster (God) is pulling the strings. Only, we are not a normal puppet. We can fight where the puppet master wants to take us. Surrendering to God is being still. Goinglimp if you will. Surrendering to God is allowing our spiritual side to run our physical being. It’s in thestillness that we find our connection to God. This is where we feel the direction of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
No Time for God
There can’t be surrender if we don’t give God his due time. This was the week that a song by the Guess Who bubbled up in my head. It’s called ‘No Time’. It reflects those times when we turn our back on God. When we give Him… No time. The lyrics repeat phrases such as ‘I got no time for you. Distant roads are calling me. I have no time for the love you send. Seasons change and so did I. You need not wonder why. I got no time for you.’ Harsh words. We have to ask ourselves, how often during each day are we giving God no time.
We revisit the miracle story of Deb Zimmerman. This time, through the eyes of her husband, Ted. When Deb Zimmerman was sent home to die because cancer was shutting down her body, two things happened: 1) Christ appeared to Deb. 2) A miracle through the prayers of Dr. Issam Nemeh brought Deb Zimmerman back from the brink.
