Giving up control in little ways is uncomfortable for everyone. Giving up control in major facets of our daily life is the last thing any of us wants to do. But letting go of control trusting God over your entire life, that's called surrender---and whether we like it or not, it's the one sure way to experience abundant life.
About the Book
But I don’t want to surrender!
Have you ever felt those words bubbling up so deep inside you want to shout?
It’s normal. It’s natural. It’s human to want to be in control.
But when your need for peace surpasses your desire for control, God–who truly uses all things for our good–demonstrates how much we can trust him. The very act of completely surrendering our will to his can become the one act that will change your life forever.
In this five-session video Bible study, recording artist and bestselling author Laura Story demonstrates the ironic joy found when we surrender it all to God and simply give up. Surrendering expectations and power is not a step-by-step process but a willful, daily decision worth every single ounce of effort.
Though surrender sometimes flies in the face of our instincts, hopes, and dreams, it’s never without benefit. A surrendered life includes the surprise of a truly full and satisfying existence where trust is reasonable, reconciliation is possible, and relationships can heal.
