His Encouragement #36

Welcome to His Encouragement. I have joined with some blogging friends to bring you a new Bible verse every Thursday, and a little discussion of hope and encouragement. We welcome you to join the conversation by adding your daily verse of encouragement as well.

I pray that these Thursday posts become an encouragement to you and help you end your week strong in God’s love and purpose for you. God bless!

But I have trusted in Your mercy;
My heart shall rejoice in Your salvation.

I will sing to the Lord, because He has
delt bountifully with me.

Psalms 13: 5 & 6


It isn’t always easy to surrender ourselves, to allow someone else to take the lead, to make the decisions. However, that is just what God wants us to do. He askes us to surrender our will to His. And not just once, but continually.

I have learned that the more I surrender and trust in Him the easier it becomes. The God I’m surrendering to isn’t a stranger. I do not fear that He will abandon me, or fail me. I’m confident that God is my Father, and my mighty Warrior, and King. God is good and trustworthy. He loves beyond measure, and He is faithful to keep His promises.

God invites us all to a life of surrender, to trust him with open hands. To give Him our greatest struggles and our smallest details. He is big enough to handle it. He is faithful and loving.


Now it is your turn!
