Redeemed & Restored: Single & Surrendered
Today’s episode of Redeemed & Restored is entitled Single & Surrendered. It’s funny, even as I say that, I have to admit a lot of the time when I thought I was surrendering, I really wasn’t.
Sure I wasn’t dating, and was committed to God bringing me the man He wanted me to spend the rest of my life with, but my thoughts, intentions and motivations of my heart told a very different story. I continued to try to control this area of my life, declaring God’s will when I was only listening to my own voice.
Come along with me as I give a glimpse into my journey of true surrender to God’s plan for my life.
Welcome, I'm Athena!
I start each day by tithing the first hour to the Lord in prayer, reading the word, doing word studies of the Text, and asking God how I can live out what I am reading. This time is usually met with meditation on devotionals that are usually written by dead guys like Oswald Chambers, CS Lewis, Charles Spurgeon, AW Tozer, and Andrew Murray.
Right now, I’m reading a daily devotional with a friend called Tozer on the Almighty God for my focus for the day. It's fun to see individually what pulls us in to spur one another on to good deeds!
The Bible is filled with action steps to walk out in practical and intentional ways. This sets my day in motion to walk it out! I hope this is your heart, too.
Consider this a personal invitation to join me in this journey!
