Inspirational words and music

Its a reminder at the moment with all the catastrophic events happening around the world, that in fact we are not in control, no matter how hard we try.
This song shares this realization beautifully. (featured below)

Surrender

by Gaura Vani

Twenty-five years of doing it my way, has brought me here.
The road behind me is littered with the ruins,
Decisions made in fear.
“But don’t be afraid,”
The Lord has so sweetly said,
And depending on his word,
I will surrender, surrender, surrender, surrender
(da da da da da da…)

My habitual desire to control, I now abandon.
And from my schemes so carefully conceived,
I release everyone.
And in humility,
Set you free from me.
My playing God is over.
Now I surrender, surrender, surrender, surrender
(da da da da da da…)

I pray to be a bow, upon my life, affix an arrow,
A dazzling weapon of Your will.
Like the poet says, “Let that string that sings be mine.”
And as a simple tool of your design.
Remember, remember
Pretender, pretender
Surrender, surrender

Hope to see you at Gaura Purnima Festival Saturday.
