Mother Teresa’s Beautiful Prayer of Total Surrender: “You are Free Then”

Jesus said, ‘I have chosen you. I have called yo by name.’ Everyday you have to say, ‘Yes.’ Total surrender. To be where He wants you to be. If He puts you in the street, if you everything is taken from you and suddenly you find yourself in the street, to accept to be in the street at that moment. Not for you to put yourself in the street. But to accept to be there. This is quite different. To accept if God wants you to be in a palace, alright, to accept to be in the palace, as long as you are not choosing to be in the palace. This is the difference in total surrender.

To accept whatever He gives. And to give whatever it takes, with a big smile. This is the surrender to God. To accept to be cut to pieces and yet every piece to belong only tho Him. This is the surrender. To accept all the people that come, the work that you happen to do. Today maybe you have a good meal and tomorrow maybe you have nothing. There is no water in the pump. Alright, to accept. And to give whatever it takes. It takes your good name, it take your health, it takes… Yes, That is the Surrender. You are free then.
