Kay Warren calls herself “a seriously disturbed woman.” When she invited God to change her perception of the AIDS pandemic, she found such disturbing pain that her heart shattered too. Kay says “while I had been raising my family and serving in my church, a humanitarian crisis of gargantuan proportions had been escalating on our planet.” (p. 19)
What shatters your heart? What topic gives you a queasy stomach and makes you want to flee? Could it be that God wants to use that aversion for good?
In her book, Dangerous Surrender, Kay’s compelling words urge you to release your self-sufficiency and surrender to God “in the boldest and riskiest step you can take.” (p. 24)
I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of “doing business as usual.” I want to step my involvement in life up a notch. What will that mean? I don’t know yet, but Kay says God uses ordinary women like me to multiply His work in the world, when surrendered to Him! So, surrender is the first step I will take.
How about you?
