Molly’s Minute: Surrender Means Being Still

October 18, 2021

In our house, making dinner is usually something that I handle. But a couple weeks back, I’d just had a long day. So my husband, Vaughn, offered to take over dinner duty.

The problem was, I found myself unable to surrender that task to him.

While Vaughn was hard at work in the kitchen, I was hovering close by—keeping an eye on things and making little suggestions.

He actually had to tell me, “Molly, if you want me to do this, you’re going to have to let me do it.”

In the same way, if we truly want to surrender something to God, we have to let go of it. And we have to trust that He can handle it.

Psalm 46:10, “Be still, and know that I am God.”

Surrendering to God means being still. Surrender means taking our hands off of what’s worrying us and having faith in who God is and what He can do.

So, today, let’s truly surrender whatever we’ve been clinging to. Let’s let go, be still, and trust that God will take good care of us.
