Total Surrender
Living A Life Fully Trusting God
by Matthew Terrill

Why is it such a struggle for us to surrender everything to God? What does surrendering to God even look like and how are we supposed to do it? Why is it so hard for us to live the life that Jesus died to give us? Is life really supposed to be one constant struggle after another? One of the hardest things to do in life is to let go, giving God everything and never looking back. Laying it all down, never picking it up is the only way we can walk through this dark unfair world shinning and burning brightly for Jesus. Wanting control over our lives is the struggle that many Christians face and the turmoil of that fight is constantly lurking deep in our hearts. For many know what to do, but few actually do it: surrender. When a person holds onto frustration, bitterness, and the injustices of life their pain slowly evolves into chains that hold him down, disabling him to walk through life with peace, love, joy, and compassion. The only way to truly live is to die to our selfish nature every day and cast all of our burdens at the feet of Jesus.

Three years prior to writing “Total Surrender” Matthew Terrill could barely read or write. Despite this deficiency, God placed it on his heart to write a book conveying how we are to live life on earth, following the narrow path Jesus walked on. How was Matthew supposed to write a book when he couldn’t read or write? He was a perfect messenger for God to speak through, because people would know that it wasn’t Matthew who would be writing, but God through Matthew. All the glory and honor would be given to God, not human pride or selfish ambition. Throughout his life, no one knew that Matthew couldn’t comprehend or articulate words, especially graduating college with a finance degree and high school with honors. Even though Matthew hid these weaknesses well, God wanted to use Matthew as a vessel to show what He can accomplish through a willing heart. This book is not written from human wisdom or intellect, but from the divine wisdom and knowledge that comes from God. For nothing is impossible with God and this book is proof that God can use anyone to be an instrument to encourage, love, and lead people to Him (Philippians 4:13).
