Let it all go and fall

In the last week, I have come across 2 scenarios that have encouraged me in a "free falling" posture.  One scenario I saw on TV.  It was a special, documenting people's lives.  There was a guy, who climbed this mountain and he ended up slipping, and as he fell through the air, his arms and feet hustled to gain his ground back, but only for a few seconds and then he stoped fighting, relaxes his body and rests into the fall.  He knew he wasn't going to survive the fall and he didn't fight what was coming.
Then, there was another scenario, I read about in a book called "Discovering Your Soul Signature".  This was a true story as well.  There was a young women who was driving her "Mini Cooper" down the street and she was rear ended by a school bus that was going about 50 miles per hour.  Her car wrecked, but she opened the door and got out the car with no injuries, and she said "that at the moment of impact, her body went limp. She just completely … let go.”

I have never tried this posture of letting go and "free falling". But I'm sensing that there are times and seasons where we need to take on this posture.  Stop scratching and clawing and just open your hands, let go and fall into whatever awaits us.  I'm sure it's good, because God says he has good plans for us:

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. 

Many of us think we can't let go.  We are scared to let go.  We are scared of the unknown.  We are scared of not trying to control outcomes.  But I believe that in "letting go" the adventure of your life will truly begin.
