I Surrender All

I awoke this morning to the song “I Surrender All” flowing through my heart. And even though I walk with Him daily; even though I teach and minister in His Name and see people set free; I still wanted to give Him more of me.

I gave Him my heart when I was saved, but daily as I walk with Him I find myself giving Him more of my life. I remember years ago He asked me to write a letter to someone that had been especially unkind to me. I remember telling Him, “I can’t do it Lord”. He was patient with me.

I prayed a prayer that day that I have prayed for years now when He makes such requests. I said to Him, “I am not willing to do that, but I’m willing to be made willing.” He always answers that prayer. Within a few minutes I was weeping and I could hardly wait to write the letter.

As I was thinking about this today, I realized I don’t remember the last time I prayed that prayer. These days He only has to hint at what He wants and I’m ready to do it, because He’s the One asking. He has more of me today than He did back then.

In Mark 4:19 it says that there are cares and anxieties in our world, along with many kinds of distractions, things that could cause Him to have less and less of our time and possibly less and less of our heart and our lives.

I’m sitting here this morning listening to “I Surrender All”. Sitting with the elements of communion. He gave me His all through His death and resurrection. Today I offer my all and if there is any part of me He does not already wholly posses I pray it becomes His today.

All to Jesus I surrender; All to Him I freely give; I will ever love and trust Him; In His Presence daily live.

All to Jesus I surrender; Humbly at His feet I bow; Worldly pleasures all forsaken; Take me Jesus, take me now.

All to Jesus I surrender; Make me Saviour wholly Thine; Let me feel the Holy Spirit, truly know that Thou art mine.

All to Jesus I surrender; Lord, I give myself to Thee; Fill me with Thy love and power, let Thy blessing fall on me.

I Surrender all, I surrender all; All to Thee, My Blessed Saviour, I surrender all.

  1. Amen! I am still growing in my walk with my precious Jesus. I want to be more like Him and walk with Him closer, but there is always a struggle and as you stated Mark 4:19. I love your prayer, and of course heard it before, but it resonates with me and I know it’s the Right prayer to pray. Lord make me willing to be willing today and everyday of my life.
    blessings,
