"I've been lookin' till my eyes are tired of lookin'
Listenin' till my ears are numb from listenin'
Prayin' till my knees are sore from kneelin' on the bedroom floor
I know that you know that my heart is achin'
I'm running out of tears and my will is breakin'
I don't think that I can carry the burden of it anymore
All of my hopes and my dreams and my best laid plans,
Are slowly slippin' through my folded hands

So I'm gonna lay it down
I'm gonna learn to trust You now
What else can I do?
Cause everything I am depends on You
And if the sun don't come back up
I know Your love will be enough
I'm gonna let it be, I'm gonna let it go,
I'm gonna lay it down.

I've been walkin' through this world like I'm barely livin'
Buried in the doubt of this hole I've been diggin'
But You're pullin' me out
I'm finally breathin' in the open air
This room may be dark but I'm finally seein'
There's a new ray of hope, and now I'm believin'
That the past is past, and the future's beginning to look brighter now
Oh, cause all of my hopes and my dreams and my best laid plans
Are safe and secure when I place them in Your hands"

-Jaci Velasquez

Sometimes you just have to let it go.  You do everything you know to do, and then you do the really hard part... learn to release it.  It's taken me a very long time to do it, but I've finally done it.  I lay it down... and may I never try to pick it back up again.  Thank you, Lord, for helping me to let it go.


  1. The hard part IS to learn to let it go!!! Very good.

  2. Don't be suprised that you have to lay it down again...and again. One of the most pesky things about being human is that we want to be in control; our feet have to touch the bottom. But that isn't swimming, that's wading. Regret is the most useless emotion you can experience. The only thing it's good for is wallowing in. Check your feet from time to time. if they are muddy, that means that you have picked it back up and are walking with it again. But when you cast your care upon Jesus, you don't leave foot prints.
