Six Word Friday–Surrender

Go ahead, give it up, that
Thing that holds you tightly bound.
The thing that steals your joy.
The oppression that would squash you.
Is it someone else’s bad or
Overbearing attitude? Is it your own?

Lack of trust? Heaviness of heart?
Wrongs you or others have done?
Surrender and lay aside every negative
Thought, feeling, emotion. Guilt or unbelief.
Shake free of those heavy bands.
Raise your arms high and praise.
