“Can you let go, My child? Do you trust Me? Can you lean on Me? Can you leave fear behind? Can you say goodbye to the past? Can you let go of pride? Can you release worry and doubt?

For me, surrender is a daily choice. A choice where I say—I give my life, my relationships, my pain, I give my ALL to You today, Jesus. And today, if I fail, shower me with unfailing grace.

So give it all to Him. Climb the mountain with your hands wide open. Open our hands, God! Make something beautiful out of the broken
