Every day we have to say yes. To be where He wants you to be. Total surrender: If He puts you in the street—if everything is taken from you and suddenly you find yourself in the street—to accept to be put in the street at that moment… . To accept whatever He gives and to give whatever He takes with a big smile. This is the surrender to God. To accept to be cut to pieces, and yet every piece to belong only to Him. This is the surrender. To accept the people that come, the work that you happen to do. Today maybe you have a good meal and tomorrow maybe you have nothing. There is no water in the pump? All right. To accept, and to give whatever he takes. He takes your good name, He takes your health, yes. That’s the surrender. And you are free then.
I haven’t surrendered yet. Can’t accept that things aren’t the way I want them to be.
