"I'm Letting Go" by Francesca Battestelli

Erin's Take

Wouldn’t it figure? The one thing I’ve wanted most of all, God has withheld from me: a family of my own. He’s given me more than I can ever imagine. If my life was a sundae, it would be an extra large with everything on it and a double cherry on top. In my eyes, it looked like a kiddie sized cup that barely held ice cream. I saw everyone I know receive the sundae I wanted, and all I got was the kiddie sized cup, or at least that’s what I thought. One day, I felt God asking me if I trusted Him. Even though I said, “Of course, I do!” He kept pressing me because He knew the truth. I felt the Lord had failed me by not giving me my dream. 

Once I admitted the truth - that I didn’t trust Him because he didn’t give me what I wanted - the next step was to let go – let go of the life I had planned for myself. It was scary because it meant saying I trusted God even if His plans for me were different than what I had wanted. Once I let go, I was filled with an incredible sense of freedom…and I could see the massive, topping-filled, hot fudge overflowing sundae the Lord had placed on the table in front of me. Every time I hear this song, I picture the amazing sundae God fixed just for me.

What if today, you outstretched your arms by letting go of the life you planned for yourself, and open the palms of your hands so God can put something better in them? It’s hard to imagine there’s something better than the amazing dream you planned for your life. But God showed me that even good things can be let go for great things. Your dream is safe in God’s hands.

"I'm Letting Go" Lyrics
 
My heart beats, standing on the edge
But my feet have finally left the ledge
 
Like an acrobat
There's no turning back
 
[Chorus]
I'm letting go
Of the life I planned for me
And my dreams
Losing control
Of my destiny
Feels like I'm falling and that's what it's like to believe
So I'm letting go
 
This is a giant leap of faith
Trusting and trying to embrace
 
The fear of the unknown
Beyond my comfort zone
 
[Chorus]
I'm letting go
Of the life I planned for me
And my dreams
Losing control
Of my destiny
Feels like I'm falling and that's what it's like to believe
So I'm letting go
 
Giving in to your gravity
Knowing You are holding me
I'm not afraid
 
Feels like I'm falling and that's what it's like to believe
Feels like I'm falling and this is the life for me
