Lately my spirit has been contemplating what it really means to be poor and surrender all. If I admit that nothing at all is mine, and truly everything is God’s, then what will become of me? If I give up my possessions and follow Jesus, certainly my life shall be transformed. But, what if I also give up my dreams, desires, hopes, pride, ideas, time, preferences, feelings and thoughts? Nothing at all is mine, all is gift that is temporary and belongs to God. I am asked to pass the gift.
Maybe the the surrendering will transform me. Can I stop clinging from the outcomes that I desire too? Can I truly be open and trust? Will I let Love lead the way?
