Last night, I went to bed feeling defeated. This morning, I woke up angry (“Thanks America! Hope you’re satsfied…”). But since I started to pray and as we got into the Bible Study this morning, I’ve increasingly felt what I can only describe at the “peace that passes all understanding.” I’m going to try to be determined not to rise and fall on my emotions… I’m not going to try to not allow circumstances to dictate my demeanor… I’m going to try to surrender to God now more than ever before.

We’re in a different world now. And I believe God is calling His people to a new level of surrender.
