Lyrics

It’s hard for me to let go, hard for me to breathe
Thinking that I gotta control it all
I can feel my worry, and anxiety
When it’s slipping through my fingers and I know it
I’ve been losing my sleep, I’ve been losing my cool
I can feel my heart go boom, boom, boom
Starin’ at the ceiling, feeling like a fool
I’m going under and I know it
But I hear You whisper to me
If I lose my grip I could see
That You are carrying me
Oh I’m gonna let it, I’m gonna let it go
Oh ’cause if I trusted, I could move with Your flow
Being carried in the current of Your love
When I lean into Your arms, You’re enough
So, I’m gonna let it
I’m gonna let it go

Time for me to let go, time for me to breathe
Knowing that He already holds it all
Time for me to turn down, this anxiety
I can know my freedom in a moment
‘Cause when I lay it all down, You gonna lift me up
When I pour it all out You gonna fill my cup
You’re holding out your arms and telling me to jump
1-2-3 here I go yeah
‘Cause I hear You whisper to me
If I lose my grip I will see
You’re always carrying me
Oh I’m gonna let it, I’m gonna let it go
Oh ’cause if I trusted, I could move with Your flow
Being carried in the current of Your love
When I lean into Your arms, You’re enough
So, I’m gonna let it
I’m gonna let it go
Letting go of my worries
For my need to control things
I’m gonna take You at Your word
I’m gonna lay down all my burdens
Letting go of my worries
For my need to control things
I’m gonna take You at Your word
I’m gonna lay down all my burdens
Oh I’m gonna let it, I’m gonna let it go
Oh ’cause if I trusted, I could move with Your flow
Being carried in the current of Your love
When I lean into Your arms, You’re enough
So, I’m gonna let it
I’m gonna let it go

 

About This Song

a few notes from Joe B., Music Director

“I think God is a gentleman, and He’ll never force Himself on us. And the first time I began to recognize that dynamic in my own life was-- it says He’ll be my provider, but if I insist on providing for myself, He won’t stop me. He'll say ‘All right, if that’s how you wanna do it, you go head and knock yourself out.’ And then I’ll get down that road, and I’m stressed and I’m aware of my bank statement every minute of every day, until I recognize that I’m doing it and this is not the way I wanna live, and I’m like ‘Okay I’m sorry, I’ve done it again, I want to trust you.' If I insist on being in control and managing my life, the Lord will allow me to do that. But the moment when I let go, He steps in and then I’m on a different plan.” -Jason Gray

So many of us struggle with this in one way or another, and this is a fun reminder that it's OK to release the worry and fear in our lives. Sometimes we believe this lie that if we have control then everything will be OK. But the truth is the more we try to hold onto control, the more life seems to slip through our fingers leaving us frustrated, anxious, worried and scared. It's only in surrender and trust in HIM (to the best of our ability) that we find true peace.
