I die daily. -1 Corinthians 15:31 KJV
I was reading in "The Purpose Driven Life" by Rick Warren that there is "a moment of surrender, and there is a practice of surrender, which is moment-by-moment and lifelong." I am one of those people on the moment-by-moment lifelong plan. I wake up each morning learning to let go of wishes, wants, desires and future dreams.
This isn’t to say I have abandoned hope for my future days. This is different from being defeated and giving up. This doesn’t mean I don’t see great things instore for my life or that of Jordan and Maddi’s. What it does say is I have this moment and this moment only to die to myself and live on a larger scale. I cling to the moment God gives me as this is the only place where my perspective stays clear and focused. This is my definition of surrender. I die daily.
