It took a long time, but I finally realized that surrender does not mean submission—it means I’m willing to stop fighting reality, to stop trying to do God’s part, and to do my own. ~ Family Groups, Al-Anon. Courage to Change—One Day at a Time in Al‑Anon II. Al-Anon Family Groups. Kindle Edition.
Submission may be described
as the action or fact of accepting or yielding
to a superior force
or to the will or authority of another person.
It can be a synonym of acceptance,
yielding, or agreement,
but it may yell capitulation
and feel like you’ve bought the farm.
Surrender is different…or is it?
It means to cease resistance and submit
But what if submission is far from the truth,
if what’s called surrender
is accepting an open invitation
from the best of the best,
the one you could not imagine
having in your sight,
but you’re welcomed with open arms,
made part of the best,
and can give up the hard part
and only do what you’re best in doing,
surrounded by love and success!??
