i surrender.

i have laid down the swords and am ready to be in God's will instead of my own. Lord, have mercy, it's not easy, but i am ready.

i am ready.

Surrender does not mean the cessation of seeking, for we must always seek the will of God in every situation. We seek in order to obey. And in obeying the small thing that we see, the greater is revealed to us. True surrender never separates itself from carrying out God’s will.
