Partnering with Spirit – Surrender to Love

© 2010 Tonya M. Evans

To surrender to God means to let go and just love. By affirming that love is our priority in a situation, we actualize the power of God. This is not a metaphor; it’s fact. We literally use our minds to co-create with Him. – Marianne Williamson, Return to Love

This is absolutely one of my favorite Marianne Williamson quotes; mostly because it resonates with my spirit in a profound way. Truth be told, I’m a bit of a control freak. I like order and loath loose ends. Now, I have to admit that letting go and loving is such a simple statement. Such a fundamental concept. But surrender … well, sometimes I struggle with that idea. And I have an inkling I am not the only one.

Giving up control is sometimes at best at daunting and at worst absolutely terrifying. And yet it is essential if we can ever hope to actualize God’s power and presence in our lives. We knock. God answers. We have the faith of a mustard seed and with God’s power, we move mountains. God is love and loving, not a tyrant or a bully. So without surrender, we choose to go it alone and move through life without God’s infinite wisdom to serve as our Light on the path of our divinely inspired journey.

So it’s our choice. In each moment we choose whether to join with God and embrace God’s plan for our lives or to remain isolated in our human-ness, seeing through the glass darkly without the benefit of knowing what’s around all those corners that only God knows.

I choose to partner with Spirit! And I invite you to do the same. So this month we will explore some ways to join forces with the Creator and actualize God’s power in every aspect of our lives. The first step is to surrender to God’s love. Allow your voice to decrease so God’s voice can increase loving abundance in ways only God knows!

Please share with me your thoughts on this new call to action and how you plan to surrender to love.
