indestructible optimism rise again!
There is a video on Youtube that I highly recommend which always reminds me of the power of surrender. It's a short video with Oprah Winfrey sharing how she got the part in Steven Spielberg's film The Color Purple by surrendering to God. She talks about something she deeply wanted and the blocks that prevented her dream from coming true. The story will amaze you! See: Oprah video
Mitch Albom's Have a Little Faith 2011
The Hallmark TV movie, Mitch Albom's Have a Little Faith is about the life lessons learned by a journalist (Bradley Whitford) about two men of God, rabbi Albert Lewis (Martin Landau) and pastor Henry Covington (Laurence Fishburne). There are many motivating messages in this film and thought-provoking moments that are all based on a true story.
The power of surrender is demonstrated when Covington's drug-dealing life of crime has reached a hopeless impasse. He finally surrenders and prays to God for help. He offers himself in service to God's will. Miracles soon flow and the quality of Convington's life vastly improves. By focusing on being of service to others he makes a positive, lasting difference with all the people around him.
If you are feeling utter despair or deeply stuck remember Oprah's story about surrender and Covington's choice to hand his will over to a higher power. Seek out other stories to inspire you about the power of surrender. Remind yourself that no matter where you are that you are never alone. A higher power is ALWAYS with you.
