Have you ever felt helpless? Maybe it was a health issue, a financial one, or addiction or habit you could not control? Or maybe it was something as simple as trying to get a loved one to do something you know is best for them? No matter how much you tried, you just could not do anything about it.
The reason is that you are personally powerless over the problem. You may have even sought help from doctors, therapists, self-help books, or your closest friends and family. You keep trying without any luck. There is a lot we are personally powerless over – from things like the weather to get our loved ones to do what we want them to do. In truth, we are personally powerless over people, places, and things. The truth is that the only thing we can control is our reaction to the things outside our control
You might feel frustrated and think there is no hope. However, there is hope and that is through the act of surrender. Contrary to popular opinion, sometimes you have to surrender to win. What are we surrendering to? To God, Higher Power, Spirit, the Universe – whatever you call the God of your understanding.
When we surrender, we are not giving up, we are just accepting what we cannot change or control, God can. God is our help in whatever we need but we must let go of the wheel and allow God to be in the driver’s seat.
Sound scary? It can be but it is the best chance we have. Don’t believe it? Give it a try. You might be amazed at what can happen.
