Surrender All by Joni Lamb

Joni writes her story and the story of others to help those that are struggling in life can see that you can change your life; maybe not overnight, but you can change-forever. In her book she shares with you true stories, personal examples and wise advise and encouragement to help motivate and inspire the reader to "Surrender All."

What does surrender look like? How does it help? where can it lead me? Joni answers these questions and more. Based on Proverbs 3:5 & 6. Joni is very genuine in her writings. She says, "When you Surrender All to the Lord amazing things happen. One challenge in Surrender is... you have to be patient and wait for God to work His plan on His time schedule. God will reward our faith and our Surrender." Surrender means: giving up control and for many this is scary and hard to do. We are human and have impaired vision. God doesn't reveal the entire path at once to us.

The path to Surrender is continual and eternal. The Key to Surrender is TRUST GOD. The hardest part of Surrender is not knowing what is going on. Areas of Surrender are:

  • Marriage
  • Children
  • Career
  • Health
  • Friendships
  • Daily Life
  • the little things
  • the ordinary things
  • the big things
  • the foolish things
  • the broken things
  • all things
  • Loss and Failure

Sometimes we must go through pain to get to God's glory. God will be with you even when your life is in the pits. If you run from God's will you will pay the price. In the end we must realize that if we want the Lord's full blessings we must fully and completely Surrender All. It is never too late to Surrender. Remember the answer is always: SURRENDER
