My Surrender - Steven Curtis Chapman

Song taken from YouTube.

My Surrender - Artist : Steven Curtis Chapman

Does it all sound the same?
Are my words getting through?
I’ve been trying so hard
and I’m about to break
So here I am with all I have

And I’m giving it all back to You
All back to You
I surrender
Yeah, I’m giving it all back to You
All back to You
This is my surrender
Take it all

And what song can I sing
but the song that You give
I have nothing to bring
that did not come from Your hand
So here I am with all I have

And I’m giving it all back to You
All back to You
I surrender
Yeah, I’m giving it all back to You
All back to You
This is my surrender

All my plans and all my dreams
I’m giving it all to You
I lay it all down at Your feet
I’m Yours

So what song can I sing but this song?

I’m giving it all back to You
All back to You
I surrender
I’m giving it all back to You
All back to You
This is my surrender
Take it all
Take it all
Lord, take it all
Take it all


I was cleaning my apartment today and rearranging my furniture and TV after cytusm suggested a new layout to make full use of the limited space that I have. I like to listen to music while I am doing my household chores and I put on my ipod and I chose the playlist where I have listed a few of my favorite Christian songs ....... and this song started playing .... My Surrender by Steven Curtis Chapman who is one of my favorite singers...... the lyrics hit me hard. I know that I have been slacking in my walk with God .... I have been running my life the way that I want to ..... I surrender but NOT COMPLETELY. I like to have some control over my life. I was reminded again to give it ALL ... to surrender it ALL unto Jesus. That He alone can sit on the throne of my life .... less of me and more of Him. More of Jesus in my life ... in my actions .... in my words .... in my thoughts. In fact ... all that I have comes from Him.

Dear Lord Jesus ... forgive me for living my life the way that I want to ..... forgive me for going my own way. It is so easy to leave You out of my life. So easy to make my ears deaf to Your voice. So easy to harden my heart to You. Please soften my heart .... make it soft and moldable. I give it all to You .... I lay it all down at Your feet ... I am Yours. Amen

Don't give yourself too much pressure. A baby step each day.

Thanks for sharing the song lyrics...want to echo your prayer.

....and forgive us, Lord, for the times when we verbally surrender and then take it back when decisions need to be made...not trusting You fully...
