Surrender and Just Love
by Rev. Kamatara Johnson, Director of Collaborative Ministries
“Something amazing happens when we surrender and just love. We melt into another world, a realm of power already within us. The world changes when we change. the world softens when we soften. The world loves us when we choose to love the world.” ― Marianne Williamson
In this beautiful here and now, I melt into my greater awareness of Spirit and that power already within me. I know the Presence of the One Loving Source, even as it expresses within me and without me, all around me and before me. There is no separation, only Divine Essence flowing in and out and between all that is, including me and you.
Aligned with the Divine that is the Presence and Power within, I affirm my total surrender to Spirit in every aspect of my life. I release the illusion of control and all the false beliefs that lead to a desire for control. I am whole in the Divine, and so I have no demands. I release any need for logic and reasoning and instead bank of love and compassion in this human experience I am having. I welcome Grace into my thoughts, my words, and my actions. I listen with my heart. With no “oughts” or “shoulds,” my energy is liberated to flow more deeply into what is and who I am called to be. With this radical surrender, I open up the potential latent within myself to be at peace regardless of what may be around me. I am unconstricted, unbound, and unlimited in the flow of complete surrender.
And I give thanks to the Divine Universe for this surrender, to lay it all down and step out in faith and peace, knowing that all is well. God is my source. My life is filled with bounty and an ever-deepening expression of love. I am so blessed with all that is just as it is.
So I release this affirmative prayer into the Law, knowing that words have the power to create. This is my new reality which I create. It is already manifesting in Divine Right Order and in perfect time. I let it go and know it is so. Amen.
