"Surrender consists, not in doing great heroic deeds about which self can brag, but simply in accepting whatever God sends, and not seeking to change it (unless it is God’s will for it to be changed). Full surrender is full peace. If we are restless and concerned about things formerly renounced, we have not genuinely surrendered. Surrender is the source of true peace; if we aren’t at peace, it is because our surrender is not complete."
Love Burning in the Soul, James Harbur
