Sweet Surrender


Each of us has an integral role in the unfolding, epic Love story of creation.

(Listen to my song “Let It Be Done to Me” on YouTube by clicking HERE)


Luke 1:38

Mary said, “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word.”


Mary gives us the perfect example of being open and present.

She is open to receiving a divine message.

She is open to accepting what is…even if it’s something totally different than she planned.

She is open to setting aside her own ego and its desires and to allowing God to do something with her life that she could never have dreamed on her own.

That takes humility.

That takes presence.

That takes knowing that you are part of something bigger than yourself.

Are we following Mary’s example?

If we did…God just might do something amazing with our lives as well.
