Complete Abandonment

“The essence of spirituality is contained in this phrase: complete and utter abandonment to the will of God.” Jean-Pierre De Caussade

Can I be honest with you today? I’m not there yet. I want to be. I REALLY desire to be there. But I’m not there yet.

What’s standing in my way? In a word: Fear

What’s keeping you from complete and utter abandonment?

    Pain in the past and fear of more pain in the future; complete surrender is a scary place to be, but I want it more than anything. I have seen God make great beauty from the ashes of my life, and I have experienced much restoration and grown so much in the “shadow times” when I could only kneel or lay at the foot of His cross and cry out for strength and healing.

    Over the past 7 years that I have attended CP and read this blog I have seen/heard about more humility within leaders of the modern American fellowship style, community church. Pete and guys like Rob Bell have always said things like, “do you want to see blind faith or turning lives over to the will of God, go to an AA meeting.” I am blessed to be part of that movement as well.
