Weekend Wisdom: Surrendering

I did not know what hymn I was using for today’s post, but the Holy Spirit spoke to me last night at church as we sang this “oldie but goodie.”

May the words and music inspire you to surrender no matter what nasty curve ball life has thrown at you.

May you feel the tingling sensation of the Holy Spirit as you surrender all to Jesus. As you surrender, thank Jesus for going to the cross in your place and thank God for raising Jesus from the dead so you will have eternal life.

I Surrender All

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


I surrender all, I surrender all,
All to Thee, my blessèd Savior,
I surrender all.

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, Savior, 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.


All to Jesus I surrender;
Now I feel the sacred flame.
O the joy of full salvation!
Glory, glory, to His Name!
