When you state it in that way, I am compelled to think about it a bit differently, because even though faith is a letting go of sorts, that can be potentially fear producing for sure. Is there a part of letting go that frightens you, or intimidates you? The fact that it may not be all that you had hoped, after you turn your faith over to it? The fact that you have had forced, bad experiences with supposed "faith" and religion in your personal past? Maybe if you name the ghost that is holding you back, for yourself anyway, it could help you to know that you are ready to move forward.
I think you are ready. I believe that I am always the most fearful when I know that I am on the verge of something big, a big part of my process of growth, change, and self-actualization.
Maybe this is true for you as well.
