“There is POWER in your POSTURE.” – Elaine Owens

In my early years of ministry and life I blamed people, circumstance and everything else for whatever bad situations I stumbled into. Sadly, my response to all of those things was negative and disrespectful, and dishonoring. So as years past I changed my RESPONSE, I became flexible. My defensive and hostile posture was replaced with one rooted in an understanding that God was working in me, through me and for me.If there is power in your posture, then let that posture be in a constant state of surrender. Even when it’s unfair, even when it’s uncomfortable, even when you feel led to defend yourself.

Let your posture be surrender, if it was good enough for Jesus it’s good enough for us.
