I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.
1 Timothy 2 NIV
Sometimes we have to get dirty to know what dirty feels like and how it feels to come clean through all our dirtiness. Surrendering for me was when I finally got down on my hands and knees and cried out to Him telling Him I am done! I am done with this self-seeking mission of mine! My healing took place when I started to learn what unconditional love meant. We all have a purpose to fulfill in our lifetime. Although, it took me some time to figure out mine its never to late to share your experiences with others. I've chosen to mentor God's lost children on and off the streets.
