Scripture Challenge {Week 49}

I Surrender All (hymn)
All to Jesus I surrender
All to Him I freely give;
I will ever love and trust Him,
In his presence daily live.

I surrender all, I surrender all;
All to thee, my blessed Savior,
I surrender all.

All to Jesus I surrender,
Humbly at His feet I bow,
Worldly pleasures all forsaken,
Take me Jesus, take me now.

I surrender all, I surrender all;
All to thee, my blessed Savior,
I surrender all.

Oh, how I love that hymn, and what a great reminder that we need to surrender everything to Him and live for Him daily!

Week 49 Challenge Word: Surrender

What exactly does surrender mean? says “to give oneself up, as into the power of another; submit or yield.”

We are to completely surrender to Christ. We cannot surrender partially; it must be completely. We can’t be a Sunday Christian; it must be daily. We must have a Christian-life view not a world-view. We can’t live half for Him and half for the world. Fully surrender every detail of our daily lives to Him. We surrender to Him out of love, humility, and a desire to serve Him.

I found two great things from Max Lucado for this week regarding our word:
“Surrendering our life to Christ means going to Him and saying ‘I’m yours; use me however you want to.’”

“Go to God with empty hands—no hidden agendas, no crossed fingers, nothing behind your back. Go to Him with a willingness to do whatever He says. If you surrender your will, then He will ‘equip you with everything good for doing His will.’”
(Hebrews 13:21).

Just perfect words again—that surrendering our whole life to Him completely.

When searching for a scripture this week, I didn’t really find much when I searched on surrender. Some other words I searched on were: submit, submission, give up, yield. See what you find. Let the Lord lead you to what He would have you learn and read this week.

For my card this week, I used the December kit from Create My Keepsake. The papers are from Luxe Designs and Basic Grey. The Basic Grey papers are so beautiful, and I even dressed them up a bit more on the front of my card by adding Stickles and Distressed Stickles. I also used a Jesus stamp from Unity Stamp Co. from the Little Labels 2 set.
For my verse this week, I chose:
James 4:7 "Submit yourselves then, to God. Resist the devil."

I hope that you will ask God to show you those things in your life that you may not be surrendering to Him. Ask Him to help you surrender completely. Blessings,
