Surrender Your Way into Grace

Posted by: | Comments (0)

 “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.”

The words take me back in my mind to the little country church where I grew up. I can almost hear my uncle sing the words as people behind me and around me echo the sentiment. The melody….serene, tranquil. The words sound to have been written when De Venter, the author, was immersed in a glory cloud, and certainly not before two cups of morning coffee.

Doesn’t it sound simple, without any labor at all? You know, just surrender?

Change, Change, and More Change

Posted by: | Comments (2)

 I’ve found myself in another season of change. It inevitably happens just about the time I take a deep breath and think I am in a place of rest.

I muse at times on this season I find myself in. It’s one of continuous change. Continuous transition. I used to read Ecclesiastes 3 and think it meant that you were either in one season or another, and yet I find myself in several of them all at one time.

It’s like a different kind of mid-life crisis. (Yes, I am claiming that this is my mid-life even though my numerical age might indicate otherwise. I will live to be at least 104 J, and no, my marriage is not in crisis.)
