From the desk of Pastor Jan . . . Victory in Surrender

2024-07-02 10:18:09 pat
As I was searching for a picture that shows Victory in Surrender, I found this copy of Renae Zanella’s painting entitled Surrender. Her write up about this painting is what I have in mind about the topic. Here is the excerpt of her testimony (https://renae-zanella.com/2022/10/12/surrender/): “I planned to paint this outside to celebrate my 4-year sobriety anniversary. I got to start the piece outside but then the wind started whipping. My paint was drying instantly as it touched the canvas. I couldn’t see half the time cuz my hair was in my face. Then the farmer across the road pulled up with a few tractors and semis to harvest. Which was just hilarious to have so much going on for this painting I’m calling “Surrender”! But with what felt like chaos surrounding me it turned out to be the greatest example of how we need to surrender and go with the flow. It’s not our plan but Gods! ... I painted a silhouette of a person in a surrender pose down on their knees forehead down with their arms stretched out straight in front of them on the ground. Then I painted light starting to come up behind the silhouette of the person that looks like people pulling each other up. They represent all the people alive and in heaven that help us and guide us. The overall image at this point also represents a fire that is burning inside my heart and soul for God. “

(W)holy, (W)holy, (W)holy: Health, Healing and Wholeness – July 2024

“Very truly, I tell you, when you were younger, you used to fasten your own belt and to go wherever you wished. But when you grow old, you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will fasten a belt around you and take you where you do not wish to go.”  John 21:18

Jesus is telling Peter what to expect in the future, that he too will face the kind of fate that Jesus did. Peter, the impetuous disciple, needed to accept the sobering reality of what it means to be a follower of Christ. Whenever I read it, this verse also speaks to me of the sacrifices that we sometimes have to make as we grow older.
