Let Go Let God Provide Answers

In prayer, I receive answers.
 
New projects and possibilities fill me with joy and anticipation. They can also bring with them trepidation as I consider all of the options before me. I may find myself wondering where, when, and how to proceed. I can research ideas in books or poll loved ones, but seeking external answers alone may often leave me with too many options and more questions. There is only one true source for answers: God. When I seek clarity, I turn to prayer and receive divinely-directed messages. Centered in the awareness of the presence of God, I ask the questions on my heart. I learn to listen and put my faith in the still, small voice that whispers a reply. I know what is mine to do.
For everyone who asks receives, and everyone who searches finds, and for everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.—Matthew 7:8

Let Go Let God All Is In Divine Order

I am at peace, for divine order is active in my life.
 
In Paul’s letter to the Romans, I find this reminder: All things work together for good. It does not say some things work together for good on occasion. Rather, all things. Every day, in every way, things are getting better and better because divine order is active in my life. Yet there may be times when life is a bit chaotic. Whenever this happens, I affirm: divine order. I remember that order is always happening in my life, even if I don’t see it unfolding. I don’t have to understand every step of the way, but instead trust in God. My way will be clear in the right time and in the right way. Divine order is my security, always present because wherever I am, God is.

We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose.—Romans 8:28

Let Go Let God Achieve Success

Success comes when my divinity and humanity act together.

What is success? I realize defining it for myself is the first step to experiencing it. When I get recognized for something I have achieved, I celebrate my success. If my goals need to change midway through, grace intervenes and carries me in a new and better direction. I sense something more powerful at work than my personal vision and effort—the presence of Spirit. I am most successful when I trust this invisible force to work alongside me and guide my path. Ultimately then, success is a partnership with Spirit. I do my part and remain open to what Spirit tells and shows me. I am most successful when I allow my divinity and humanity to act together.
 
But he said to me, “The Lord, before whom I walk, will send his angel with you and make your way successful.”—Genesis 24:40

Let Go Let God Pray for Others

I pray for my loved ones, conscious of the presence of God within them. 
 
Holding others in prayer is a powerful, sacred process. I realign my whole self, including all that I think, say, and do, with the healing, protecting presence of God. I pray for my loved ones, conscious of the presence of God within them. I let go of all concern or anxiety about each person by saying, “I bless you, knowing you are enfolded in divine loving care.” I pray that they stay attuned to their spiritual source, and that they feel the love of my prayers. The sacred activity of prayer clears my mind. I am confident that my loved ones are safe and secure, guided into their highest outcome. I am grateful for the presence of God moving through every person and every need.
 
Therefore … pray for one another, so that you may be healed. The prayer of the righteous is powerful and effective.–James 5:16

Let Go Let God Provide Guidance

The mind of God enlightens me. I am wise, courageous, and confident.
 
On occasion I may feel unsure of the direction of my life and the choices I am making. When I become aware of the anxious or vulnerable feelings that accompany uncertainty, I pause. Even a brief pause helps reset my mind and opens it to greater possibilities. When the mental whirlwind has settled, my whole being is quiet and my mind is open to receive. In the mental space that I have cleared, Spirit’s guidance comes through. Like sunshine lighting the evening sky into morning, the mind of God enlightens me! In the quiet, I hear the wisdom that lies within my own inner recesses. I feel peaceful and accomplished knowing exactly what is mine to do.
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God.—Romans 12:2

Let Go Let God Through Communication

I share a heart-and-soul connection with others.
 
T hrough social media and cell phones, we can connect with family and friends instantly. We inform and are informed as our feelings and understanding go out to others with the click of a “send” button. Still, communication doesn’t happen in a vacuum. It’s an activity between and among people. At its best, it is understood and relatable—a window into the lives of ourselves and others with new and unique vantages. Jesus was the master of communication, and the words he spoke resonated with others. His messages are as real for us today as they were for those who listened to him. I take my example from Jesus and use communication to share a heart-and-soul connection with others.
The reason I speak to them in parables is that “seeing they do not perceive, and hearing they do not listen, nor do they understand.”—Matthew 13:13

Let Go Let God Bless Fathers

God bless all fathers and fathers-to-be.
 
A beloved and often repeated prayer by individuals and in groups begins, “Our Father ...” There is both great responsibility and reward in playing the role of a father. Encouraging confidence in young ones calls for a parent to be present in all stages of children’s lives. Often it’s not until after years of being present—sometimes when kids think they are smarter than adults—that fathers are appreciated for their wisdom and devotion. A prayer is a powerful way to bless fathers: “God, bless fathers with all they need to be wise and loving parents.” And perhaps a prayer is even more immediate when a father or a father-to-be prays: “God, guide me in being a father that enriches the lives of my children.”
I will be a father to him, and he shall be a son to me. I will not take my steadfast love from him.—1 Chronicles 17:13
