And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:2 NASB http://bible.com/100/rom.12.2.NASB
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.
