Learning to TRUST and WAIT

Maybe because all my life I have had few difficult moments I thought I knew how to trust in You. Maybe I was trusting in me. Maybe I always felt I could achieve all in my time and in my way... maybe that is why now it gets so difficult to empty myself of me and let You pour Yourself. 
I confess to you Jesus that I have no clue how to trust You COMPLETELY. Please teach me.

Father,
I abandon myself into your hands;
do with me what you will.
Whatever you may do, I thank you:
I am ready for all, I accept all.
Let only your will be done in me,
and in all your creatures -
I wish no more than this, O Lord.
Into your hands I commend my soul:
I offer it to you with all the love of my heart,
for I love you, Lord, and so need to give myself,
to surrender myself into your hands without reserve,
and with boundless confidence,
for you are my Father.
