Daily Surrender

"It comes the very moment you wake up each morning. All your wishes and hopes for the day rush at you like wild animals. And the first job each morning consists simply in shoving them all back; in listening to that other voice, taking that other point of view, letting that other larger, stronger, quieter life come flowing in. And so on, all day. Standing back from all your natural fussings and frettings; coming in out of the wind." (C. S. Lewis, Mere Christianity)

  • What are some practical ways in which we can "shove" all the voices, wishes and hopes that "rush at us like wild animals"?

  • What are some practices that can better posture us to keep in step with the life-flow of the "stronger, quieter life" that comes to us in the Spirit of Christ?
