I'm letting go

I heard a song today on the way home from the doctor and it just hit me. This is where I am in life. I am sure that I have heard it before but I guess I never really listened to the lyrics.

I am holding so tightly to my dreams that I am missing out on what God has planned for me. God's plan is so good. Jeremiah 29:11 says, "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." I have to let go and give in to His word, His will. Rest not resist what his plans are for me. I have been resisting a lot lately. So much that it is getting in the way of the many blessings He has given me.
The song says:
I’m letting go
Of the life I planned for me
And my dreams
I’m losing control
Of my destiny
It feels like I’m falling and that’s what it’s like to believe
So I’m letting go

I have to give in to faith and believe and not hold on to my "dreams."
Proverbs 3:5-6 says, "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight."
Romans 8:28 says, "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."

I have been researching a Bible study for this summer and think it will be Becoming a Woman of Purpose. I need to delve into the Word and figure out what God's plan and purpose is for me. On Amazon, the book says, "As you grow toward genuine peace and fulfillment, you'll learn the joy of loving God and others, waiting on Him with hope, trusting Him through suffering, serving Him with reverent fear, and fulfilling His purposes." That sounds amazing!!
Giving in to your gravity
Knowing You are holding me
I’m not afraid
