Submission. That can be such a scary word. It is defined by the Merriam-Webster Dictionary as the condition of being submissive (submitting to others), humble, or compliant. When I think of submission I think of letting something go.
- Letting go of control
- Letting go of anxiety
- Letting go of sadness
- Letting go of anxiousness
- Letting go of anger
- Letting go of always trying to fix things (relationships, family, children, etc)
We tend to want to hold some back…some of our anger, some of our forgiveness, some of our control. But all that partial release brings is stress. Or, we let it go only to pick it up again.
I am learning that we only find true rest in total submission… When we lay everything down at the feet of Jesus and submit all to Him we will find true rest. Easier said than done…but anyone else in need of some real, genuine, true rest? Let’s work at it together!
