Rhea Borbotti

I had to read the chapter several times to fully grasp what it says. I look forward to seeing where this book is going and where I will allow it to take me. I have experienced absolute surrender in certain areas of my life at various times. But never 100% surrender 100% of the time. Fear is huge hard wall to climb over even though I know God’s blessings are waiting on the other side. I’m afraid of heights! What if I get to the top and fall off?!There is one area of my life that I have such a tight grip on, afraid to open my hands and give it to Him. Yet, the tighter I hold on, the more it slips through my fingers. Perhaps by the time we finish this book I will learn how to allow Him to open my grip, breaking my fingers if necessary! I can’t climb that wall if my hands aren’t free!
