The Sassy Girl: Submitting to God
This year, the sassy girl has learnt that submission to God is not a one day affair— but a daily yielding of self to the Potter.
She has learnt that yesterday’s obedience cannot cater for today’s failure to obey. Everyday calls for its own obedience to the Father.
Lord, I am willing: to follow and obey You. And everyday, I know that I will be willing. But I also know that my flesh will never be willing.
Yet I know for certain, that my spirit is truly willing.
My prayer this day Lord is that You bring out a daily willingness and obedience to You in my life because only You can.
I am willing…
To receive what You give me,
To lack what You keep from me,
To relinquish what You take from me,
To surrender what You claim from me,
To suffer what You ordain for me,
To do what You command of me,
To wait until You say to me, ‘Go’.

Only, remind me that Your presence will always be with me whithersoever I will go.
