what does it feel like?

Big change from last Sunday. Some things have happened this week that caused me to open my eyes and evaluate where I am and where God wants me to be. Good things. Things that will change my life. I have known for some time now God's plan for my life. Sadly I have been hiding behind the excuse that I don't know how to get started. Rather than fully surrendering to His plan, I held that part of me back and leaned on it to keep me from moving forward.

Not anymore.

Today was turning point day.

Normally going down front brings me to tears. I mean, bawling type tears. And yes, sadly, sometimes the ugly cry comes up. Today however was MUCH different. (now please note that I don't go down front all the time, just when I really feel God's push - today was one of those days). I could not stop smiling. I think I even giggled. Tucked in a corner where it was just me and my Abba, I smiled and with amazing joy surrendered fully to the ministry God has laid before me. And now, I can't stop smiling. I am SO excited. I think the Holy Spirit has been gettin' down since this morning. Doing a little boogie for the Lord. Cause my heart is just leaping! It's an amazing feeling to completely hand things over. I may not know where to begin, but God's given me a few great opportunities allready. My choice was simple - either sit where you're at and never move forward, or get off my tush and MOVE some mountains! I moved a big one today, and I plan to move more and more and more until there's nothing satan can do to get between me and my God.

What about you? Do you want to come move some mountains with me?

ps - what does complete surrender feel like??

One word - Freedom!
