Submission is an attitude of the heart before it is an action. God desires us to submit to Him and not react to circumstances. The opposite of submission is rebellion. The attitude of submission is total. God places over us rightful authority for our own good. They may anger us when we do not possess a submitted attitude. God does not check with us to make sure we will like whatever our God-ordained authority has to say. God works His peace into our lives as we submit to proper human and spiritual authority. You can be sure that someone will come along to reveal pockets of rebellion and reaction still in us all! Submitting to God is impossible when we do not know Jesus Christ. When we actively submit to God’s will, we identify with Jesus Christ’s death on the cross. -Paul Johansson

I love Jesus! I want to be an example to young people and women. Learning to die to myself and live for Christ. It's a hard process, but I know the outcome will be beautiful!
