Surrender to the Lord

All we are

All we have

Never part, always all

Not a laying down, but a placing in

Not getting rid of, but handing over

Into His capable hands

Stop fighting

Don’t hold on so tight

Open your clenched hand

Relinquish control

To the One who loves you

He knows what’s best

He has a plan

Step out of your comfort zone

And into His

  1. very well done- reminds me of the lyrics of one my favorite songs by Tenth Avenue North- don’t fight the Hands that are holding you. May you nestle in His grasp today, and always.

  2. This is beautiful!

    • Cherylann, thanks so much for your kind words. Surrendering to the Lord is something I have been really working on and these words just came flowing out. Blessings!

  3. Great reminder to let go and let God.

    Thank you for sharing this. I am going to use this for my daily Lenten prayer. Surrender is difficult for me, I’m still working on it. I still can’t sing “I Surrender All” in church.

    • Jovella, I am humbled you will be using my poem as your Lemten prayer. I love that song too. It is much easier to sing or say the words than actually do it. Be blessed!

  5. I noticed another blogger mentioned ” I surrender All….” I read you poem twice and that hymn was the sound track! Beautifully written. I am leading our Discipleship School through Lent with a contemplative devotional by Bill O Bryne, and the repetitive themes are surrender, and the crucified life. Thank you for your encouraging words today. May God open your mouth wide, that He may fill it with good things! Blessings to you.

    • Christina, the concept of surrender is something that continues to come up for me as well. It is something we struggle with but once we surrender whatever it is we are clinging to, we are able to experience His peace. Be blessed.

  6. I love this poem, I need to remember it EVERY single day 🙂

    • Daniella, thanks so much for your kind words. Surrender is something we all struggle with but all must do. Be blessed!
