I Surrender All

April 11, 2018

I had the privilege of being a guest yesterday at Anchoring Hope.  Rhonda provides "resources to help you face life’s uncertainties with confidence and courage". There you will find various authors and speakers who help spread the message of hope found in Jesus. Will you join me?

 

 

 

Surrendering my past to God is the only way I have received real healing in my life. 

As a child of an alcoholic I spent years fighting a losing battle: trying to control the uncontrollable. That is, until God used some powerful circumstances to ask me to surrender everything to Him.

 

Dad’s addiction to alcohol hit high gear not long after I turned 15. I dealt with the normal issues every teenage girl suffers through. Struggles with popularity, awkward growing phases, self-esteem issues, and peer pressure. But added to those were confusion, embarrassment, and the lack of trust addiction brought to my home. 

 

As I matured into an adult, Dad separated from Mom and eventually became homeless. I stuffed the pain of Dad’s addiction deep within me.  My lack of trust and desire to control all aspects of my life were a driving force for the choices I made. Trying to control people, situations, and outcomes became my normal.
