Time for a Great Cartoon! (unconditional surrender)

I’ve been teaching my four-year-old grandson the meaning of the word “UNCLE!”  We wrestle on Grammy’s freshly-made bed, tickling, poking, thumping, and grabbing each other amidst screams and laughter.  When I get exhausted, I cry “UNCLE!”, and he knows he’s defeated me.

"Ready to surrender?"

“Ready to surrender?”

All of us need to cry not “UNCLE!”, but “FATHER!”, giving in to the God who lovesus.  But we sometimes keep wrestling against Him, refusing to surrender.

The Christian life is a constant challenge to unconditionally surrender to the God who loves us and wants the best for us.  Surrendered recently?
