: to agree to stop fighting, hiding, resisting, etc., because you know that you will not win or succeed
: to give the control or use of (something) to someone else
: to allow something (such as a habit or desire) to influence or control you
So is surrender a good thing or a bad thing? I guess it all depends on what you are surrendering and who you are surrendering to. “Fight the Good Fight”, that is what “they” always told us, right? Where does that get you? You and your will are still in control and in some people, that is NOT a good thing. I can definitely speak for myself when I say that. Left to my own devices, I will mess up a one car funeral. But I don’t have to live like that, right? I can do something about it, right?
Of course I can, but the bigger question is “Will I”. We all know what we have to do, what we need to do to be happy, or at least content, but we do not want to give up control or “surrender” anything to make it so. So what’s it going to take? Do I need to sink further into despair, let the crap around me win? I keep saying that I still have too much to lose, but I don’t see myself changing. Others tell me that I am, but I don’t see it.
Anyway, went and saw a couple movies the last couple days, “God is NOT dead” and “Non-Stop”. Liked them both but for different reasons. Would recommend “God is NOT dead” to anyone that needs a good spiritual uplifting, not the best acting in the world but I liked the stories and got a lot out of it. “Non-Stop” is a Liam Neeson action movie. Liam Neeson is just a bad-ass, I enjoy his movies and this one kept me wondering who the bad guy was until almost the end. Won’t win any awards but was worth the time watching it. Plus I basically had the entire theater to myself since school is not out yet, which I think was my favorite part.
Just going to keep on keepin’ on, maybe some day someone will read these incoherent thoughts and leave a comment 🙂
