“Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand that he may lift you up in due time” (1 Peter 5:6).


Submission to God is probably one of the hardest things we are called to do. And the times don’t make it any easier when the messages we hear on a daily basis promote women “girl power”, “ruling the world”, “being large and in charge”, “doing it for ourselves.” Yet these messages are in direct contradiction to God’s call for us to “humble ourselves”, “trust in His power”, “give up all for His sake”, and “take up our cross and follow Him.”

While our total submission to the authority of Jesus Christ may be challenging, it will be the most rewarding act you’ll ever experience. How should you go about this act of submission? Of course, God’s got the answers. So let’s explore His Word together. Learning to SUBMIT your all to God encompasses the following six principles:

S – Surrender
U – Unconditional Love B – Beholden
M – Motivate
I – Intimacy
T – Trust

These series of studies will explore each of these principles. We’ll begin with examples from God’s Word regarding the 6 principles of being totally SUBMITted. And after having read and reflected upon God’s Story, I invite you to experience My Story as a reflection of God’s Word and workings in my life. Finally, engage in various reflective exercises to support the writing, re-writing and/or sharing of Your Story.

Be blessed!
