Surrender to God | God Intersections

No worries, I’m not talking about you, I’m talking about me. The question of the day is “How many more ship sinkings, oil well blow outs, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunami’s, stock market meltdowns etc. will it take before I learn to surrender?”.

Surrender to what? Surrender the outcome of my life and business to God! Surrender to Trusting God with my life and business every month, every week, every day and every hour.

If you have been reading this blog for a while you know that GodIntersections.com is committed to exploring 4 things:

  1. Trusting God with our lives and businesses
  2. Finding the way forward by reading the God Intersections on our journey
  3. Forming Communities around Godly Core Values.
  4. Letting those Communities sustain us through these fear-filled times.

And while I have loved my personal journey this last two plus years in unpacking and sharing these concepts, I haven’t actually believed that the concepts were critical to achieving success and significance.

That changed this past week as I continue to watch the carnage inflicted on us by our fellow man, “Mother Nature”, the financial markets, our greed etc. My Current Best Thinking is that the fear and uncertainty in our world is not going to diminish. I actually believe our best efforts to manage the outcomes of our lives will become increasingly futile.
So what are our alternatives? I see only two:

  1. Attempt to Manage the Fear by gutting it out via the current world system (read increasing misery and stress and sleepless nights)
  2. Learn to Trust God by exploring His Love for Us, following His Intersections and letting Him determine our outcomes.

And while it is still currently possible to survive by choosing Option 1 that is becoming increasing untenable. Surrendering our lives to God on a daily basis will become the only viable answer. In that decision is the protection we seek, the love we long for and the significance we crave.

But this is NOT an easy path. And that is why I have committed my life to walking this Trust Path.  And journeying with those who also choose to be Walkers. Let me encourage you to choose the “Trust God” path!

I would love to hear about your journey.
