All to Jesus I Surrender

Robin Mark

All to Jesus, I surrender
All to Thee I freely give
I will ever love and trust You
In Your presence daily live

I surrender all, I surrender all
All to Thee, my blessed Savior
I surrender all

All to Jesus, I surrender
Lord, I give myself to Thee
Fill me with Your love and power
Let Your blessing fall on me

I surrender all, I surrender all
All to Thee, my blessed Savior
I surrender all

We sing the song in church, mostly at the end of service and have an altar call.

This song came to me as I was writing and working on my project. I was handwriting some notes and wrote how I couldn’t understand why I am unable to move forward in my writing when suddenly it dawned on me.

I hadn’t fully surrendered everything to Him. I hadn’t fully handed Him my dreams to write a book.

Another thing I haven’t fully surrendered is my attitude. These past couple of days has been so rough mentally. Tears have been shed, anger ensued but thank the LORD that I didn’t go off on the person who was all but saying mental illness does not exist. I’ve known this for awhile now and just don’t know how to approach him about the subject. I don’t want to start a fight and then end up in a manic episode.

I’m not manic though. Thank goodness. However, I’m in a depressed state currently.

I want to write! I need to write! But this project of mine is going nowhere because I get so distracted.

A friend suggested I go take a walk, which I did and came back in a slightly better mood.

I don’t want to fall back into my depression. That was an awful time for not only me but my friends and family.

I surrender all, Jesus. Including my mental health. You are the Great Physician. If it be your will, take this “thorn in my flesh.” from me.

Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

James 4:7

All to Jesus I surrender
I give myself to Thee.
