When we let go…

Our circumstances change,

Because the idol that had gripped our heart

No longer it remains.

When we let go…

It isn’t easy indeed,

But it liberates us to move forward

As it truly sets us free.

It’s when we let go…

That things begin to happen,

And we hear of many great examples

As it becomes a pattern.

The lady who so desperately

Is wanting to conceive,

Most times will fall pregnant

When expectations are released.

The person who so desperately

Is yearning for a change,

Will be set free once they discover

That God truly will sustain.

If we constantly desire

And ask for many things,

We’ll be free when we surrender

To enjoy the peace God brings.

When we let go…

And allow God’s sovereignty,

We’ll discover a joy and a peace

Where God’s love we feel and see.

It’s that tight grip that enslaves

As we prohibit the release,

Of God’s blessings and His promises

When our idolatry won’t cease.

But when we let go…

There’s a freedom that abounds,

Knowing God will guide and will protect

When trust in Him is found.
