Surrendering My Anything

“Anything is nothing in light of that. In light of forever. In light of him.”
This couldn’t have come at a better time in my life. I began at a place where for the first time I felt like I really liked what my life looked liked. Like I was truly comfortable. And in comfort, I forgot Jesus. I thought I could do it on my own. I thought it was me who got me here in the first place. I forgot what God has done in my life in favor of putting myself on a pedestal. This bible study revealed my deepest weakness, my pride, and proceeded to strip me of it. God opened my eyes my lack of true understanding of the Gospel, breaking me down to build me up. Now, instead of shaky self-confidence based on performance, I have a rooted confidence based on a hope in an all-mighty God. I’m ready to surrender my anything, no matter the path the Lord takes me on.
