Toward Sweet Surrender

Many of you have heard the saying, "Be careful for what you wish; you may get it."

The Anchoress throws cold water on it:
But is it, really? In fact, it sums up the whole idea of "not my will, but thine be done..." it is precisely what Jesus taught us, but we forget that. We're so into "feel good" Christianity and "Expect a Miracle" thinking (and there is much to feel good about, in Christianity, and many miracles to expect) that we forget the hard truth - that beneath all of that we're supposed to be disposed toward surrender, we're supposed to be getting out of the Creator's way (and our own) so that He may increase as we decrease.
The rest of this post is here.

Wisdom speaks.
