The Angel Card I chose today was Release & Surrender.
The Angels bring this card to you because you have been single-handedly trying to fix this situation. They'd love to help you and answer your prayers. But first you need to surrender and release the situation.
Surrender simply means you are tired of struggling. It means emotionally letting go.
Don't worry about how your prayers will be answered. Let God figure out the details.
This is one of my least favorite cards to get because I have zero flippin' idea how to surrender. I do not know how to let go. I feel like I say the words, but this surrender thing is an hourly process for me.
I feel a strong need to keep trying, to not give up too soon, to keep digging where I am standing in a deep, deep hole.
There is such a fine line between pushing through rejection to realize your dreams and burying yourself. I truly am not certain what that fine line looks like. When do you persevere and when do you crawl out?
I see the quote on Facebook at least once a month that says, "that the moment when everything is going wrong and you are about to give up is right before the moment when everything falls into place." What if my moment of success is in the next pile of dirt I dig up?
I read about authors who's books were rejected by several publishers, but they took it to one more publisher & that group bought it and it became a best seller.
If I surrender the outcome, do I just stop doing? Aren't I supposed to keep moving forward to allow opportunity & outcome to find me?
Several times this morning I have actually raised them above my head like I have seen in cop movies when the bad guy gives up or as in a church service when the spirit just moves you. I am saying the words and physically opening my hands in a show of Releasing & Surrender.
