Get Up and Give

Woke up discouraged. I Hung my head in my hands, as I recalled the events from
yesterday. And that’s when you, most truthful and honest Holy Spirit, spoke to my heart.
Get up and Give. Yes! That’s how you live…you live to give and give and give some
more. Giving demands surrender. Surrender is only successful if you know what you are
surrendering and to whom you are surrendering. Surrender to self pity and doubt and
you will find yourself in a desert. Feeling sorry for yourself only leads to misery and
misery is a watering hole that will suck you dry every time. For I have learned that
drinking the salt of your own tears will never quench your thirst.

Surrender once

Surrender twice

Surrender thrice.

My life is not my own.

My heart is faint

my soul is dim.

Just enough light

To see and be seen

For nothing goes unnoticed

From Heaven’s seat.

Help me Lord to raise the white flag of my soul up to you, daily. For you alone can be trusted. Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.

Psalm 25:5

Get Up and Give
