Surrender

I like to plan.
Before I go and buy ice-cream, I do a google search of the company and the popular flavors. I also find out information about the caloric intake and a review of previous customers. I also search for any coupons and print them out if need be. At this point I then schedule a  specific time, and find out the 3 buses that can get mii to the location for the specified time.
I don't leave anything to chance. On arriving at the store I taste at least 3 different flavors before buying and ask if there are any additional promotions that will reduce the price. I then sit down and eat my ice-cream.

So maybe that is why surrendering to God is excrutiatingly difficult. I like plans and schedules. I like to know the outcome before I embark on the journey but God doesn't work that way.

A couple of days ago, I saw this picture on Jaycee's blog and then somehow the words in Isaiah 45:9  came to mii. “What sorrow awaits those who argue with their Creator.
Does a clay pot argue with its maker?
Does the clay dispute with the one who shapes it, saying,‘Stop, you’re doing it wrong!’
Does the pot exclaim, ‘How clumsy can you be?’".


The Message translation of the next verse,
"Would a sperm say to a father,
   'Who gave you permission to use me to make a baby?'
Or a fetus to a mother,
   'Why have you cooped me up in this belly?'"


clinches it for mii.

I gotta surrender and stop questioning.

Wish mii luck
Better yet, pray for mii oooooo.



I guess I could turn it around, and be all up in YOUR business and ask what is preventing you from surrendering to your Creator, but I live in Canada now and Canadians are not intrusive, so I'll respect your space and let the image say what I won't. (wink wink)

Have you ever been so close to a dream that you could taste it.
Breathing in the fragrance of fulfillment while you gaze on its lush curves
Drowning in its beauty you reach out to touch, and then discover, it's only a dream not reality.

So I'm there and back again.

Today is (was) my birthday and ...
whew
Today was hard.

I can't seem to find the words and so when words fail, I borrow them. Enjoy this quote written by Andrew Murray to himself as he lay incapacitated on a sick bed. Moments after completing it, a women came seeking encouragement and so he gave it to nourish her soul. I found the picture while going through earthquake images from Haiti (2010) and fusing the two together was my birthday present to myself.


God is so good
God is so good
God is so good
He's so good to mii.
