Effort and Surrender

“Yoga is at its core a balance between effort and surrender.”

This line from a yoga dvd I own always catches my attention because it reminds me of how our spiritual walk is a balance between effort and surrender. Now I’m not talking about effort in terms of earning your salvation or even in the discipline of daily devotions, etc. I believe the only effort required is continually reaching out to God. Then comes the hardest part–surrender–surrendering completely control of my life to the one who knows me and loves me best.
