And when you stop saying "God, I'm gonna try,
God, I promise I won't do it again.
God, I hate that I do that.
God, I hate that I keep going back to that pattern.
God, I hate that I keep treating people that way.
God, I hate that I keep looking at that.
God, I hate that I keep letting that in my life.
God, I hate that I keep talking that way."
When you stop saying, "God, I hate that and I'm gonna try..." and instead you say,
"God, I love you MORE and I'm gonna let you have it."
That's where freedom comes from.
Freedom comes from not trying to break that chain anymore,
not trying to break the addiction,
not trying to break the sin,
not trying to get better.
Freedom comes when we simply say, "I'm not trying. God, You've got it.
I trust in You more and I love You more than the sin, so I'm just gonna give it to You.
I'm gonna look at You and I'm not even gonna think about it and when I do,
You're gonna give me strength as long as I keep my eyes on You.
As I long as I surrender to you everyday, I'm gonna find freedom."
