Surrender

Counselling stressA corporate client told me this morning that he had to be in control…………….

I replied…….”What would it be like for you to “Surrender”…your control….

That was a rhetorical question at the end of our session…………..

Surrender seems to have some connotation of weakness about it????

Weak!

A weak man can never surrender!

You may be much stronger that I am.

You may be able to jump on my shoulders and pin me down, but I have not surrendered.

I am rebelling inwardly watching….when you relax a little bit I am going to throw you down.

Surrender is completely different………………..

Surrender is the necessary and natural consequence to these two…….

The wonder……………..

“What is this” ……………and…………..

The confession……………..

“I do not know”

I must come to that point.

I must battle – battle.

I must enquire, I must do all that I can do…………………..

And……………..

Then come face to face with this wonder……..

“What is this?”

“I don’t know”

That is surrender!

Then I am strong.

I have battled right through.

That surrender is different.
