That's it, I'm done! I can't do this any longer. If I keep trying I'm going to drown. I feel so overwhelmed. It's impossible to do it all. I can't make everyone happy. I don't know how to be a good wife and mother let alone a friend, pastor's wife, worship leader, music ministry leader, Bible study leader. I can't do it! I give up.
I am not strong enough!
I've put up a front for so long. I try to look confident and put together. I pretend that I know what I'm doing. But just when I get one thing figured out, another thing pops up. When is it going to end???
Then I hear God gently say, "When you surrender it all to me."
God, I want to surrender, but I don't even know how to do that. I've carried the weight for so long; I don't know how to release it.
My child, just lay it down and walk away.
But what if I need it? What if I can't walk without that weight?
My child, just lay it down at my feet and walk away.
But God, I don't think I'm strong enough to release this burden.
Lisa, you don't have to be strong enough. Don't you understand that?
Oh God, I need you! I'm so broken.
I've always been here, waiting for you.
Lord, right now I surrender to you. If you want me to do these things, then I need You to be strong enough. Give me faith to believe that I can do all things through your strength. All things. ALL THINGS
I don't have to be strong enough. I do everything through His strength, not mine. I give up and look up. Now I am wholly surrendered.
If ever there was song that depicts exactly how I feel right now, it is this song.
