Thoughts on surrendering our will to God

In My Father's House

What do you think of when you think of surrendering your will to God? What images run through your mind? I was talking about this in the comments of another post so I thought it would be good to put some focus on this subject here.

What I see now as my somewhat religious images of surrendering my will used to run along the lines of me in a painful struggle, wrestling with God, or some Medieval monk prostrate on the floor crying out, “Okay, God, I give up! I give my all to You!”

But this attitude of surrender seems to be quite subjective.  For some it can be real life changing or even life threatening decisions, others not so much.
