The Surrendered Life

Learning God's faithfulness and beauty in the midst of the call, the wait, and times of suffering

Season 1, episode 10
42 min / Published

A generation is rising up who have dreams and callings burning in their heart. In the midst of calling there is the time of waiting and preparation that can stretch on for years. In this episode Zuzanna Low tells the story of coming to Christ as a young woman in Yugoslovia, marrying a fiery American, their call to be missionaries in the Balkans, and the 25 years of waiting and preparation that ensued. Zuzanna expresses how the years of preparation were actually more critical than the call itself because of what it did for her heart to become surrendered to Jesus. Then, after waiting 25 years to walk into the dream of becoming a missionary, Zuzanna's husband was diagnosed with ALS and passed way after a difficult battle against the disease. Zuzanna tells listeners how she found God's beauty in the midst of incredible suffering and loss, and how she is now more in love with Jesus and more surrendered than ever. If we are to walk into what is to come, we as young believers desperately need to grasp hold of Zuzanna's message of living a surrendered life, keeping our eyes on Jesus, and trusting the process. Her longsuffering and faithfulness are something I hope we grab hold of as a generation!
