Reckon on Surrender

IMG_4611

Begin to believe, and hold on to it steadfastly, that He has taken that which you have surrendered to Him. You positively must not wait to feel either that you have given yourself, or that God has taken you. You must simply believe it, and reckon it to be the case.

–Hannah Whitall Smith, “A Christian’s Secret to a Happy Life”

(quoted in “Grace for the Good Girl”)

    • That’s cool. 🙂 I read it a few days ago, and was like, “Oh! Duh! That’s what I’ve been missing…” I keep “trying” to surrender, and haven’t simply rested in the fact that He will take that which we give to Him. Funny how silly we are sometimes… 😛
