Surrendering to God’s will carries the connotation of facing a life sentence without parole. Who hasn’t had those occasional hair-raising thoughts: “Oh God, don’t make me do that–anything but that.” And as funny as it sounds, it’s true. Surrender, to us mere mortals, can feel like sudden death; the death to our dreams, our passions, our plans, our hopes.
How can we trust that we’re hearing from God? What if what we feel God is telling us makes no logical sense? Marcie Thomas will share inspiring examples of when God asked her to choose the path less traveled—the path of surrender. And through surrender, God has opened up unexpected doors of favor, opportunity, blessing and success. This episode is designed for the leader who needs a little encouragement to “let go and let God.”

Marcie’s Success Tips
Determine if you’re willing to sell out to God. What do you want more than anything else in this world?
Look for his nudging and begin to listen for his voice. He will speak to you through the word, conversations, your prayer time, events.
Obey him. Once you know for sure it’s God, move forward with no regrets.
No complaining allowed. Once you’re on his path, trust Him explicitly. He loves you enough to correct any mistakes.
Measure success by your obedience. Any other measure will be misleading.
