Following Jesus isn’t easy. To fully embrace all that He’s called us to, we must relinquish our grip on the life we’ve pursued apart from Him. The more surrendered we are, the more pliable we’ll be to His will. Although this might feel frightening in the moment, the yielded heart leads to life and joy.
