I Choose Surrender
by Liza Kerr, RScP
Lately, I have been troubled lately by the uncertainty of events around me. Certainly, waking up and having a place in my heart that is afraid of things I don’t have any control over is contributing to my unease. I feel as if I am packing that unease into a bag and taking it with me to carry all throughout the day. I bring it to work, I bring it to play, I have it as a dinner guest with me, every day. That bag is getting too heavy to bear.
Today I choose to set it down. I know I don’t have control of a lot of things happening around me but I do have control of what I think about. Today I choose peace.
There is one God, one almighty presence. A singular point of being that is the source of all things. As the source of all things, there is nothing that is not God. God is Love, Peace, Serenity, Understanding, Compassion, Prosperity, Abundance, Perfect Health, and Well‐Being.
I know that I was created by that entity we call God as a masterpiece, a living embodiment of the essence that is God. There is nothing in me that is not in God, nothing in God that is not in me. If this is true for me it is true for each of you for the innermost God and the outermost God are one and the same. There is no separation between you and God. I am. You are. Simple.
I speak my Word today for peace of mind. I set down this heavy burden I have been carrying around and I surrender it to the power of God. I call upon my faith – not the faith in God, but the faith of God to carry this burden for me. I release, and I let go. I choose today to reclaim my peace of mind. I choose today to think about the love that is all around me, to see people with eyes of compassion, and understanding, and to let go of the need to control the outcome. I surrender to my faith in the God of my choosing.
I give thanks for this manifestation for I know that it has already occurred.
I release my Word to the Law of Mind, knowing it cannot come back to me void.
AND SO IT IS!
