I Surrender These..

Image used via Google

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
Psalm 139:14

In walking my journey I am learning to write lists. Each list holds different themes, but all are significant. In writing these lists I am learning things about myself I'd never known. Also, it is drawing me nearer to where I need to be on my journey. For this I am grateful. In my "21 Days of Simplicity" journey one of the key things I learned was to "let go". So tonight I sit at my desk and "let go" of some things and feelings I no longer need to hold on to.

I Surrender..
-My heart, mind, body and soul to The Father above
-My old way of thinking
-Past hurt and shame
-All of my fears
-Negative self talk
-The act of being too busy
-The things in which I can not change
-The fear of loneliness
-Anger and judgment

I Embrace:
-Sweet Mercy
-Love and Light
-Joy and peace
-My inner and outer beauty
-My flaws
-Strength and Confidence

As you go through your weekend I pray that you will find it in your hearts to "surrender" all the negatives and "embrace" each and every positive. Walking a spiritual walk is in no way easy, but I am determined to succeed in this. I wish you all joyful days and peaceful nights throughout your weekend!

On Monday I will post Show#2 for I Choose Bliss. I hope you will visit and tune in!!

Peace & Blessings


  1. 'To "surrender" all the negatives and "embrace" each and every positive'.
    A truly beautiful message Tabitha.

  2. I find that I make lists also. I like that it keeps me focused.

  4. I can't wait for the next show.. your blogs are truly an inspirational force for me.. Thank You for sharing.

  5. Wonderful thoughts!

    "Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest"

  6. Yes, this is the way -- to let go of negative and to grab hold of positive, or as you said "embrace". For every "thing" we remove, we need to embrace something else. Replacing darkness with light. ♥

  7. Thanks Tabitha,
    Great words to read to start my weekend.

  8. Sort of like ... changing the lense on your camera to get a different perspective. I wish you a wonderful wkend.

  9. Oooh, these are really great lists! I like it that you are both surrendering and embracing--that's really wonderful.

    Looking forward to your podcast on Monday. In the meantime, I will be thinking through my own surrenders and things which I embrace. Thank you for today's inspiration!

  10. absolutely beautiful and the picture too

  11. You are such an inspiration! Thank you so much for your posts! They always seem to make me check these areas in my own life!

  12. lovely post. :-) I especially loved letting go of shame and embracing joy.

  13. You are truly an inspiration. I love your lists. Yes.. they might be difficult to do at first, but it becomes easier as you let go and learn how much better you feel!

  14. * Visiting from SITS
    I really enjoyed reading your blog. I'll be following you. There are a few things I need to let go and let god but, it's a battle!

  15. Tabitha, I think that's awesome!!!!

  16. These lists are things I should let go & embrace as well. Prayers for your journey! =)

  17. Thank you! It is so helpful to pop in over here and here your words. I am in the midst of a daily surrender and lessons in trust. Thank you.

  18. Dropping by to pick up my bite of bliss. I'll be listening to your podcast soon, also. Have a joyful week!

  19. Yes, Tabitha, I have also been thinking about surrender. Surrendering my WHOLE heart, not leaving out any part, surrendering all of me to a Master who knows better what I need.

  20. Your posts always break the complicated down. The simplicity breaks through the clutter of my heart and mind. You are such a blessing! Your message is like the magnifying glass that allows me to find the splinter causing the pain.

    Be blessed:)


You bless me with your presence! Tabitha♥
