How does one go about surrendering?
Things are not always what they seem. A person can walk past a building which, at first glance, appears to be undergoing demolition. Bricks and wooden siding are piled up around nothing but a foundation. Windows are leaning against trees and the site is littered with debris. A closer look, however, reveals that this is a construction site – not a demolition project.
Even though the two kinds of sites look similar, they differ greatly in purpose and outcome. Is your life a demolition project or a construction site? It may be hard to tell at first glance, but the answer is greatly dependent upon who you put in charge of your life.
