The Mary Marantz Show

Sep 7, 2021

If we’re being honest with ourselves - the last couple of years have probably gone anything except according to plan. If you have felt that life recently seems like one big exercise of surrender - surrendering of plans, control, work, school - just what life is ‘supposed’ to look like, and your dreams are feeling a little lost in the shuffle - then you’re in the right place today. 

Today Mary is joined for a second time by her friend, bestselling author, podcast host and national speaker, Rebekah Lyons. In her new devotional, A Surrendered Yes: 52 Devotions to Let Go and Live Free, Rebekah offers readers 52 reflections that will move them from striving and fear into freedom, joy and rest.

On today’s episode, Mary and Rebekah head right to the heart of what a surrendered yes actually is, what it looks like, what it feels like, and what is keeping us from it. You know that big, scary dream that you've been feeling like God has been asking you to take a big leap? Mary and Rebekah cover exactly how to stop putting off that decision because they are tackling what is keeping you from making it.

The two discuss:

  • How fear of failure shows up in our lives
  • What is means to surrender not only control, but the struggle as well
  • Why you are NOT disqualified; even when that’s all you feel
  • How to say yes even when it means to lay down heartbreaking things


After listening you will be equipped to:

  • Challenge your mindset when you place yourself on the sidelines before you start
  • Act out your surrendered yes even before you feel like doing so
  • Live life with ease and peace rather than grabbing for control


If you’re ready to take action on that idea that you can't go a day without thinking about, the one God just keeps giving you those nudges on, then don’t miss today’s episode!
