When you hear the word surrender, do you immediately imagine a skinny pole with a white handkerchief on it, as if you are surrendering to some unknown enemy’s advances?
The Definition of SURRENDER is:
1a: to yield to the power, control, or possession of another upon compulsion or demand
b: to give up completely or agree to forgo especially in favor of another
2a: to give (oneself) up into the power of another, especially as a prisoner b: to give (oneself) over to something (as an influence)
During the challenges and heartbreak of my personal fertility journey, I fit definition “2a.” I felt imprisoned by the defeated feelings of my circumstances. But then a shift occurred and I let true surrender come into my life. When I did, I then felt a recalibration of its meaning.
For me, to surrender means to surrender to oneself or to the divinity within and to divine timing. This does not mean you give up, but rather give up your challenges and turmoil to the all, to the one, the I AM.
Giving it to God, The Higher Power or the Universe releases us from the lower perception and moves us to the sense that we are not alone
We were born in the likeness of the Creator, whomever you believe that is, and we are here to know, love and serve the Lord…
My way of living in this amazing planet is to know, love and serve myself and others because we all have the God light within.
Are you reading and saying “Yah right, sista, sure! What are you talking about?”
It wasn’t until the day I fell onto my knees in my bathroom, broke down and gave up my fertility journey to the Lord that things shifted.
Giving and surrendering this burden to someone other than myself empowered me to move forward. It means coming to terms that you not alone and worthy of all that you deserve.
You’re not being punished.
You’re not being made to pay for some passed indiscretions.
You’re not unworthy.
You are powerful.
You are amazing.
You are healthy.
You are fertile.
You are loved.
You are worthy of all…
You are worthy!!!
Hear it and feel it! Unlimited love and worthiness are yours.
