When you hear the words “You will have a son, and you must call him Reuben” – while the adoption papers are lying in your mailbox – you can’t help to ask “God, is that really You?”
Woman of God
That moment you realise that it’s out of your hands, when you realise that it was never even in your hands… that’s the moment of real surrender.
The word surrender means “to give up or hand over” – in my case, it’s more handing over than giving up, because I’m handing over to God but NOT giving up!
Let’s face it… we all have our bad days. The days on which everything seems to go wrong.
A special friend of mine has all the right to claim her day as a bad one today.
