Welcome To "Surrender"

This blog is simply about being surrendered to God, plain and simple. With regard to surrender, I plan to focus on two primary issues (and these issues are issues that I struggle to daily and completely surrender to God):
  • obeying Jesus with regard to eating
  • looking to Jesus alone for a healthy body image
So, at least initially, this blog will focus primarily on eating issues, body image issues, and completely surrendering those "idols" to Him. But the reality is our lives as believers are not compartmentalized; true surrender to Jesus' Lordship is about a completely surrendered life, head to toe.

One of our early endeavors for this blog is a book discussion focusing on Love to Eat, Hate to Eat: Breaking the Bondage of Destructive Eating Habits by Elyse Fitzpatrick. (You can see a picture of this book on the sidebar. If you want to buy it at your local Christian bookstore, the list price is only $6.99! I'll bet you could find it on for even less. The book includes a study guide, which is what we'll be using.) Right now we have a couple of people who plan to participate in the book discussion, and if anyone else is interested in joining, please don't be shy! Let me know either in the comments or via email.

I'm looking forward to this journey of complete and absolute surrender to the one who is worthy: Jesus Christ.
