“I Surrender All,” three words I know well from the hymn of the same name. Spiritually, I can define surrender as the act of submitting, yielding, acquiescing my will, wants, and desires to the Lord.
We often sing it at baptisms because it's our first act of surrender — but not our last. The reason is simple; He says, “Follow me.”
Since that day when, at 16 years old, I went to the water, I have learned that it's a continual process. To follow Him, I need to trust His plan for my life, surrendering my heart and mind since they rule my actions and thoughts.
Simply put, “Yes, there’s a master plan … it’s just not ours.”
