With fear and trembling

This word evokes a sense of fear in most
fear of being caught
taken from the unknown
loss of control
removed from one’s position

some tremble at the thought of surrender
not out of fright
but as a bride trembles
awaiting the moment she can enter the sanctuary
and approach her beaming groom
some tremble as the loved awaits the arrival of the lover
we tremble in anticipation
anticipation of the beauty that is found
in the very hand of God

to surrender
God does not trap us in surrender to his leading
surrender is a voluntary act
though it is commanded to be done
the surrenderer must choose to obey
or by a forced struggle..and perhaps hurt
be convinced that surrender is
the only way out
the only way to real safety and freedom
