    Lesa, I think this is a good description of the "let go and let God" idea in this article from Guideposts. The point, I believe, boils down to this:

    "what 'Let go and let God' comes down to is this: We need to let go of our own will. We must claim as our own the incredibly hard prayer that Jesus prayed: 'Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but Yours be done' (Luke 22:42). We need to let go and let God do what God wills. This submission will lead to peace and joy, even when the way is difficult. “Father, I place my life in Your hands!' (Luke 23:46)."

      Ecclesiastes 3:6: "A time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;"

      Isaiah...  more

      Also perhaps:

      Matthew 11:28-30: "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My...  more
