Let Go Let God in Appreciation

My heart is filled with appreciation for the people in my life.
 
The Christ spirit of love, compassion, and patience is active in each person. These qualities expressed outwardly bring grace and harmony. As I think of the individuals in my life, I acknowledge those who demonstrate these attributes and the ways in which they add grace to my days. Their presence is a comfort. I am grateful for the small gestures of kindness they show me and the large tasks they take on. In prayerful contemplation, I bring to mind all of the individuals who bless me. I consider family members, coworkers, and friends. I choose this day to outwardly express my thanks by affirming: My heart is filled with appreciation for the people in my life.
So if I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet.—John 13:14

Let Go Let God as Signs & Wonders

I see the mystery and majesty of Spirit all around.
 
In areas of the world where seasons occur, the signs of change are obvious: the first purple bud pushing through melting snow; the first firefly in the warming night; the first colored leaf to fall. In every season I see the mystery and majesty of Spirit. I am awed by life in a baby’s laughter and an elder’s wisdom. I reflect that I am a unique expression of Spirit as I gaze upon the vast universe splayed across the starry sky. The earth has changed during eons of time with the creative power and love of God presented over and over. No matter how much humans discover, there is more we do not know and places only faith can take us. Spirit reveals what I need to know. I am at peace in the mystery of creation.
Who is like you, majestic in holiness, awesome in splendor, doing wonders?—Exodus 15:11

Let Go Let God as a Caregiver

I treat all living beings with love and kindness.
 
Mother Teresa, one of the most notable caregivers of all time, is credited with saying, “It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.” If I am able to give from love, then I can serve as a caregiver. Even if I am not caring for the needs of others by protecting their health and well-being, I act as a caregiver when I treat all living beings gently and kindly. I take advantage of the opportunities to embody the role of a caregiver that exist throughout my day. Whether I perform small acts of kindness such as holding the door open for someone or volunteer my time to help animals in need, I am actively caring for others. I infuse unconditional love into my interactions as I care for others.
Let each of you look not to your own interests, but to the interests of others.—Philippians 2:4

Let Go Let God as an Earth Blessing

I live in harmony with the earth.
 
In 2004 Wangari Maathai was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for her work in Kenya through the Green Belt Movement. In her acceptance lecture she said, “We are called to assist the earth to heal her wounds and in the process heal our own—indeed, to embrace the whole creation in all its diversity, beauty, and wonder.” I am part of a beautiful web of life; intricately woven so that my actions impact the entire web. I am a good steward of the earth’s resources as I am a good steward of my own body. Centered in divine wisdom, I use what I need in ways that support the renewal of the earth. I experience a sense of peace living in harmony with the earth.
The earth brought forth vegetation: plants yielding seed of every kind, and trees of every kind bearing fruit with the seed in it. And God saw that it was good.—Genesis 1:12

Let Go Let God Express Inner Peace

I express the peace and love of my Christ spirit.
 
I make a conscious choice to be calm and centered. In this way, I open my heart to the constancy and serenity of the Christ spirit within my soul. Inner peace places me in a state of mind that is far from a passive state. I exercise my focused will by generating a steady stream of peace. I am inwardly peaceful even when difficulties are happening. I begin by asking myself, What is preventing me from experiencing peace right now? As I examine any false attitudes or beliefs that I uncover, I then ask, How can I look at this differently? Taking a few deep breaths, I cleanse myself of any anxiety I may have been feeling. I then move into the space of my core self, the Christ spirit within. Doing so, I choose peace.
And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.—Philippians 4:7

Let Go Let God Be Authentic

I am an authentic, divine expression.
 
My certificate of spiritual authenticity was verified the moment I was born. There is nothing I need to do or be to gain God’s approval or grace. The very source of my being is of God. As I allow my authentic nature to shine forward, I act as the light of God in this world. I remain vigilant in contemplating my true nature through daily meditation on my divine essence. Molding to the expectations of others can feel as though I am diminishing my light. Holding my head high, speaking and acting on my truth, I let my light shine. I affirm my innate passions and spiritual gifts are ways in which I serve. I focus on sharing these gifts knowing that I am an authentic expression of God.
Then God said, “Let us make humankind in our image, according to our likeness.”—Genesis 1:26

Let Go Let God with Balance

I nurture all aspects of my being and live a balanced life.
 
Many different aspects make up my life, including my family, work, hobbies, and spiritual practices. Every day I consciously make an effort to prioritize self-care and tend to my emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual needs. In that way, I meet my daily obligations balanced and whole. From this place of balance, I am able to give my best self to every part of my life. If I start to neglect certain parts of myself, I turn to God within. When I nurture every attribute of my being, I will once again experience a greater sense of harmony with emotions, thoughts, and experiences. I nurture all aspects of my being and live a balanced life.
 
He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?—Micah 6:8
