We raise our white flag, We surrender all to you.
We raise our white flag,
The war is over.
Love has come,
Love has won.
(Lyrics from White Flags by Passion with Chris Tomlin)
Expectations, selfishness, control and anger. We have raised some ‘white flags’ in surrender over these past days. I wrote about areas that have affected my life and my marriage in negative ways over the years. These are things I have surrendered to God. Do not get me wrong, I am a long way from perfect and all of these can rear their ugly heads when I least expect them. Yet, I have a God who is changing me. He has brought me a long way and will faithfully take me to completion.
It was no surprise to Him that I was broken. We all are and we all seem to have our own path back to Him. He does not force us. He just stands there with open arms, waiting. We have a tendency to complicate things when they really are very simple. Surrender. Whatever it is, surrender it. Lay it at God’s feet and raise your ‘white flag’. Begin today to embrace His plan for you and for your marriage. You will never be the same and that is incredibly good news.
