Let Go Let God in Reflection

I celebrate each day of my life.

I create my life one day, one moment at a time. As I reflect upon the accumulation of days, I may see days of sorrow or days when I fell short of being my best self. Yet as I continue my reflection, I also see the lessons I learned and the strength I developed in overcoming the challenges that appeared. While I cannot change a day that has gone by, I can view each one as part of the great creative process that is my life. With the vision of Spirit, I choose to see my life as a gift that I am still creating. Each moment is a new opportunity to love, give, heal and prosper. I gather the wisdom and strength from days past and use it to make the present day the best it can be.
The Lord your God will bless you in all your produce and in all your undertakings, and you shall surely celebrate.—Deuteronomy 16:15

Let Go Let God with Grace

Indwelling Spirit, endow me with your grace.

Indwelling spirit of God, shine through my eyes. Make them soft with kindness, warm with compassion, tender with forgiveness. Let no impatience or condemnation cloud my sight. Let my being radiate contentment, joy and happiness. Let me shine so that the Divine shines through me. Indwelling Spirit, enrich my voice. Imbue it with healing mellowness that calms troubled waters. Help me to speak every word in a clear, loving and sincere manner. Let me listen with patience and understanding. Indwelling Spirit, endow me with your grace. Let me move through life with wisdom. Let me be thoughtful of others, of their needs, of their dignity and of their rights. Let us create a world full of love, joy and beauty.
Grace is poured upon your lips; therefore God has blessed you forever.—Psalm 45:2

Let Go Let God Provide Comfort

God’s ever-present love is a comfort to me.

When I settle into my favorite chair, I feel supported. The chair knows my body and has adjusted over time to fit my shape. I don’t have to do anything to receive the strength and comfort this piece of furniture affords me. I simply relax into its frame and allow myself to rest. God’s love, like my favorite chair, knows me and makes no demands on me. It is available whenever I choose to seek its solace. In prayer, I turn within and feel God’s love enfolding me. I am at peace knowing God’s loving presence is my constant and instant comfort. When I settle into God’s love, I am supported and my burden is lightened.

Even before a word is on my tongue, O Lord, you know it completely. You hem me in, behind and before, and lay your hand upon me.—Psalm 139:4-5

Let Go Let God Provide Prosperity

Infinite abundance is mine in every way.

It is natural to give of oneself, and “as you give, so shall you receive.” I choose to participate fully in the circulation and blessing of God’s abundant good by giving generously and receiving gratefully. Prosperity is a God-given experience. I am prosperous as I experience happiness, health and peace. Through meaningful relationships, communion with God, and a life lived on purpose, I am prosperous in every way. I do not need a great number of material goods to feel satisfied. When I hold an attitude of gratitude for all I have, my needs are fulfilled, and my good comes to me with ease and grace. I see God’s good wherever I look, and I am prosperous!
Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap.—Luke 6:38

Let Go Let God Be Protected

Through my God-given power of free will, I am protected.

Winter is often called “cold and flu season.” While an inoculation may protect me from measles or the flu, I also have an inner protection that immunizes me. I am free from negative thinking as I choose positive thoughts. The opinions of other people, the day’s news or even challenging circumstances cannot dictate my attitude or outlook. My oneness with Spirit provides me with all I need. Inner guidance, strength, faith and understanding are divine qualities I embody. I observe outer conditions without labeling them as worrisome or difficult, and choose to imagine the best possible outcomes for me and for others. Through my God-given power of free will, I am protected.
You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.—John 8:32

Let Go Let God in Unity

We are one.

Some communities we are born into; others we adopt along the way. Whether our community is based on culture, geography, family or spirituality, when we share a common purpose, we join in unity. Beyond our own communities, we recognize that everyone is part of the global community. Here on Mother Earth, we are one. In oneness, we cooperate for the common good. Rather than asking, “What’s in it for me?” we ask, “What will best serve the world?” Embracing our similarities and our differences, we relinquish thoughts of scarcity and competition. In unity, we extend support to the worldwide community. We love and support one another.
The glory that you have given me I have given them, so that they may be one, as we are one, I in them and you in me.—John 17:22-23

Let Go Let God on Christmas Day

I celebrate Christmas with joy, peace and love.

Today my heart is filled with joy for the gift of God, the gift of the Christ Child. Humbly I stand in the presence of God’s gift­—eternal radiance, everlasting love and perfect peace. This is an eternal day of joyous receiving from the Spirit of God, a day of giving love and happiness, good will, peace and substance to all people of the world in the name of Jesus Christ. With joy, I claim the power of Christ Consciousness, the power that cleanses my mind, heart and soul of any disharmony, any weakness, any fear. Christ-power goes out from me today in a healing blessing to all. Every gift I offer and receive is permeated with the love of the Christ, spreading joy, good will and cheer.
Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!—2 Corinthians 9:15

Let Go Let God in the Silence

I am a whole and holy being.

The Silence is sacred. In the Silence, there is no confusion, no doubt, no fear. Resting in God, I am aware that the Holy Presence surrounds me and is within me. Any mistaken thought or belief that I am separate from my Creator dissipates. In the Silence, I discern this sacred message: “Be still and know that I am God.” My heart responds, “Yes, I know,” and with this knowing, my soul is uplifted. I feel a gentle ebb and flow as all regret and sadness wash away, and I am filled with joy. I nurture myself with times of sacred silence. Resting fully in the presence of God for even a few moments, I receive the assurance that I am one with the Holy Presence. I am a whole and holy being.
Peace! Be still!—Mark 4:39

Let Go Let God in Joy

I relax and let joy flow freely.

I elevate my life and my spiritual journey by calling forth joy—the natural joy that is inherently mine. Joy does not come from outer events and circumstances; it bubbles up from within. While events may trigger happiness and excitement, joy is part of who I am as a child of God. As I consciously connect with the Christ in me through contemplation, meditation and prayer, I feel a rush of joy—the rebirth of my Christ Consciousness. This is true joy, and it is harmonizing and healing. It uplifts me regardless of what might be happening around me. I trust in the activity of the Christ in me and in my life. I relax and let joy flow freely.
I have said these things to you so that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be complete.—John 15:11

Let Go Let God in Healing

I think, feel and foster health and wholeness.

My thoughts are powerful. This is especially evident with respect to my health. When I hold thoughts of strength and vitality, I am receptive to the healing energy of God. When I hold thoughts of joy and peace, I am open to God’s soothing spirit. Just as I can reset my computer when it malfunctions, I can reset my thoughts and habits when they are destructive. I shift my thoughts from worry and fear to hope and healing. I shift my lifestyle from inactive to lively and replace unhealthy choices with beneficial foods and activities. Through my thoughts and actions, I begin a new plan of health and wholeness, blessing myself in mind, body and spirit.
Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed.—Jeremiah 17:14

Let Go Let God Go Within

Anytime is a good time to go within.

Jesus did not limit prayer to a specific time or place, and neither do I. Any time, day or night, I go within and pray. As the sun rises each morning and I awake, I go within to align with Spirit. I set an intention for myself around the qualities I am willing to embody—peace and harmony, gratitude and joy, compassion and kindness. During the day, I may step aside from my routine to once again go within for reflection or guidance. Just a few moments of connection with God centers me. As the sun sets and I prepare for sleep, I turn within once more simply to enjoy the peace and quiet and to reflect upon my day with gratitude. God is with me always, and anytime is a good time to pray.
During those days he went out to the mountain to pray; and he spent the night in prayer to God.—Luke 6:12

Let Go Let God As A Child

With the faith of a child, I open my mind and heart to the kingdom of God.

For a child living in a cold climate, the first snowfall is a gift of wonder. Christmas lights sparkling against a snowy backdrop create a storybook scene. But whether children live in a cold region or the tropics, they are fully open to the joy of the season, free of worries, and filled with expectations of good. When I set aside my concerns, I become like a child. I open to the wonder of God’s kingdom. My faith anticipates only good and I easily discover it. Even when my days are filled with responsibilities, I can take a moment to feel grateful for all God has provided. I am God’s child, and with the faith of a child, I delight in the wonder of God’s kingdom.
Let the little children come to me … for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs.—Luke 18:16

Let Go, Let God

Infinite good flows freely through my life.

Blessings flow freely through an open channel but are impeded by a constricted channel. When I hold tightly to fear, anxiety, anger or a specific outcome, I restrict the free flow of the Divine in my life. In order to let go and let God, I must first consider what I am holding tightly in my mind and heart. Once I recognize it, I gently release it through prayer. When I am ready to let go, what I no longer need falls easily away. I let go of the belief that something is missing in my life, and I accept my good. I let go of any thoughts of limits or restrictions and allow the power of God to expand my experience of abundance, heal my wounds, and manifest an even more perfect outcome than I could have imagined.
Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life.—Proverbs 4:23

Let Go Let God Hold Traditions

I am grateful for the traditions I hold dear.

One way we connect closely with one another is through our traditions. This is especially true during the holiday season as families carry out the beloved traditions that bind them together. I celebrate traditions that mean something to me. Whether it is giving gifts, enjoying Christmas dinner with friends and family, attending church services, or volunteering to help others in need—I take pleasure in the traditions I hold dear.
I also embrace new traditions, opening myself to new people and experiences. I am thankful for activities that are purposeful and that connect me with others in a meaningful way. Each connection is a blessing, as it brings us closer together.
All who believed were together and had all things in common.—Acts 2:44

Let Go Let God Forgive

I choose forgiveness, and I am free.

Forgiveness is a choice. It is not something that happens to me, but something that happens through me. In choosing to forgive, I allow love and understanding to permeate my heart and mind. Any confusion, criticism or resentment dissolves, and I experience peace that transforms me—body, mind and soul. Forgiveness is a gift I give myself. It is a powerful gift of freedom. Through it, I reclaim control over my thoughts, feelings and reactions. Forgiveness brings satisfying experiences, true happiness, radiant health and right relationships. I can choose to forgive, regardless of what has transpired. I am free to be peaceful instead of anxious, loving instead of angry. The choice is mine, and I choose to forgive.
Forgive, and you will be forgiven.—Luke 6:37

Sunday, December 16, 2012

Let Go Let God Love

With the power of love, I pray for others.

The energy of God is the energy of love. Love becomes an expression of who I am as I give freely to others. I share my time, skills and resources to enrich lives in meaningful ways. I listen with compassion and understanding. I am patient and kind. In these ways and others, I allow God’s love to flow freely through me, and I feel love returned to me increased and multiplied.I pray with love for others—holding each person in my heart. I pray for their health and well-being, envisioning them whole and vibrantly alive. I pray for their inner peace, knowing the peace of God is theirs. I pray for their prosperity, trusting that every need is met. And I pray for harmony, knowing God’s love guides their way.
Love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another.—John 13:34

Let Go Let God Provide Guidance

The light of God guides my way.

God’s guiding light shines unceasingly. In its glow I see unlimited possibilities where I may have assumed only lack. In the radiance of God’s light, my path is clear. The light of God helps me see all of my gifts and strengths, enabling me to make right choices for health and well-being. As I open my heart and mind to God’s light, I am assured that I am never alone. I am inspired to co-create with God in powerful ways. The light of God also guides those I care about through their divine gifts of discernment, wisdom and understanding. I relax in the awareness that the light of God invites and encourages all of us into a fuller experience of Spirit and of life.
With upright heart he tended them, and guided them with skillful hand.–Psalm 78:72

Let Go Let God Welcome

I am blessed as I welcome others.

With kindness, I welcome others into my home, my spiritual community or my place of business during the Christmas season. I am grateful when I feel welcome in someone else’s home, and I want others to experience that same feeling when they visit me. Being welcoming is a way to show people they are valued and appreciated. It is one way I let God’s love express through me. And as I share the love of God, I, too, am blessed.
I welcome God into my life in even greater ways. As I keep my mind and heart attuned to God, I appreciate the guidance, comfort, love and harmony I experience. I seek to be a conduit through which God’s love expresses.
Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.—Romans 15:7

Let Go Let God Ask

I am creative by nature. I ask, and it is given.

In the beginning, “God created the heavens and the earth.” Humans—made in the image and likeness of God—are creative by nature. Our thoughts call forth into being that which we hold in mind. I am an imaginative being, and as I ask for the desire of my heart, it is given. Every thought has creative power and potential. I ask, focus my attention on God within, know that it is so, and let it go. Considering it done in the mind of God, I look forward with faith. If I find myself worrying or looking back, I ask a trusted prayer partner to join me in seeing the fulfillment of my desire. I am grateful for God’s creative process and for answered prayer. I ask, and it is given!
Truly I tell you, if two of you agree on earth about anything you ask, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven.—Matthew 18:19

Let Go Let God in Freedom

I am free and unlimited; there are no chains that bind me.

Some situations in my life—whether political, social, economic or physical—may feel forced upon me. Yet I can find relief by realizing that no matter how constricting the condition, at my spiritual core I am free and unlimited! There are no chains that bind me.
If I have limited my innate freedom through restrictive or unproductive behavior, I remember that none of this diminishes the glorious splendor of God in me. I recognize my oneness with the unlimited energy of God and choose anew in favor of freedom. I am free to exercise my spiritual power through whatever is occurring in my life. I affirm: God is free, unlimited and unbound—and so am I!
Creation itself will be set free from its bondage. —Romans 8:21

Let Go Let God in Harmony

I bring harmony to my relationships.

When I wish to resolve a conflict between myself and another, I do not waste time and energy blaming anyone for what seems broken. I begin the repair work by putting the disagreement in the past, where it belongs. Rather than reacting emotionally, I make a fresh start by responding from the love of God at the core of my being. I may not be able to repair the relationship on my own, but I can bring harmony to it. I accept that people can agree to disagree peacefully and congenially. As I express the love of God through my words and actions, I encourage others to let their inner love shine forth also. In honoring the other person, I am honoring God.
Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me.—Psalm 51:10

Let Go Let God Pray for Others

When I pray, I trust in Spirit.

Our loved ones truly receive a blessing when we pray for them, not only with love and faith, but also with an understanding of Truth. No matter how great the need, we know God within is greater than appearances. We know in Truth that the spirit of God within is all-powerful. When I pray for another’s healing, I affirm God’s perfect life enlivening their body, mind and spirit. I see divine life renewing, reinvigorating and healing them. When I pray for their happiness and fulfillment, I affirm God’s perfect love. I see them enfolded and fulfilled in this love, and every need met by this love. When I pray for others, I trust the Spirit within to bless them in every way.
I will pray with the spirit, but I will pray with the mind also.—1 Corinthians 14:15

Let Go Let God Find Inner Peace

My heart overflows with the love of God.

I am blessed with a spiritual sanctuary available at all times. It is a quiet inner space where I retreat from the bustle of the day and enter into the perfect love and peace of God. With my mind and heart open, I let cares and concerns gently fall away and consciously feel my unity with God’s Presence. I am nurtured—body, mind and soul. Centered in God, I am peaceful. I am peace. I am. As I resume the activities of this day—replenished, poised, filled with gratitude and clarity of purpose—my step is lighter and my outlook brighter. My countenance radiates peace, for I have experienced a personal retreat into sacred love.
The peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.—Philippians 4:7

Saturday, December 8, 2012

Let Go Let God Be Light

Divine light radiates in me as God’s love, peace and joy.

The flame of a single candle can light the darkness. When its fire is shared with other candles, the glow brightens all that surrounds them. Just as the original candle’s flame is not compromised, so the energy of one human spirit is not diminished by being shared. As I radiate the light of God within me, those around me are bathed in its brilliance, and my own light grows. The radiance of God’s peace, love and joy shine forth when I share my passion for life’s blessings. My energy inspires others who let their lights shine. Passed on from one person to another, this blessing touches all. Even in the darkest moments, God’s love shines. As I share my light, I know it makes a difference, helping to brighten the way for others.
The human spirit is the lamp of the Lord, searching every innermost part.—Proverbs 20:27

Friday, December 7, 2012

Let Go Let God in World Peace

Peace and harmony abound in our world.
Peace is a divine idea that lives in the hearts and minds of all humankind. When conflicts arise, our hearts cry out for peace. Although we may not know how to bring peace to the external world, we can bring peace to our internal world, which is the first step. I begin by practicing peace within. Keeping my focus on God, I embody peace and cultivate calm in the face of challenge. My serenity touches those nearest me and ripples out to others. If I become upset for any reason, I re-establish inner peace by aligning myself with the presence of God within. Peace and harmony expand in the world through each individual who chooses peace. At the core of my being, and in the hearts of all humankind, God abides as deepest peace.
Be at peace with one another.—Mark 9:50

Thursday, December 6, 2012

Let Go Let God in Divine Order

Doors of opportunity fly open in divinely ordered ways.

If new possibilities have not manifested as I expected, I remain peaceful and calm. In this centered state, I am able to release disappointment and trust in divine order for the demonstration of all good. Relief washes over me and erases any unease. With renewed optimism, I see divine order unfolding with perfect synchronicity, efficiency and timing.
A chance encounter may lead me to the person or circumstance that holds the key to new opportunity for me. It matters not how or why we were brought together—I have faith that the connection occurred by divine appointment and in divine order. Expectantly, I see the doorway of good swinging open before me now.
Look, I have set before you an open door, which no one is able to shut.—Revelation 3:8

Wednesday, December 5, 2012

Let Go Let God Provide the Gift

I give and receive from the flow of God’s good.

A beloved Unity author once wrote, “There must be an equal conscious receiving from the Father and giving out to the world … to keep perfect harmony.” This means harmony is established as I give and receive from the flow of God’s good. So it is that I open myself to participate in the divine circulation of prosperity. I joyously accept the gifts that enrich my life and generously share and express them as Spirit leads. I may choose to teach what I have learned, make things with my hands or quietly live the truth and be an example to others. Just as there are a variety of gifts, there are endless ways to give. In harmony with the flow of giving and receiving, I receive with gratitude and give with joy.
Every generous act of giving, with every perfect gift, is from above.—James 1:17

Tuesday, December 4, 2012

Let Go Let God Be Able

I am able!

This powerful affirmation can be a daily statement of faith: I am able. It is a positive reminder that I can accomplish any task, reach any goal, and succeed in every area of my life. I am able. There is no power stronger than the Spirit of God within me. When circumstances seem to hold me back, I trust the power of God within me to lead the way. I proceed in faith. It is up to me to use my abilities as best I know. As I learn and grow, I discover new strengths, new abilities and new avenues of expression. I feel Spirit supporting me with each step. In every new challenge, I confidently affirm: I am able.
I know that you can do all things, and that no purpose of yours can be thwarted.—Job 42:2

Monday, December 3, 2012

Let Go Let God Be Radiant

I am the radiant life of God.

If I am experiencing a health challenge, I remember God is Life and God lives in me. Turning within, I visualize the radiant life of God doing a mighty work of healing in me.
God-life is part of every cell and atom of my body. It balances the functioning of my organs, binds tissues that need repair, and strengthens my soul as well as my body. Because all creation is an expression of God as life in the world, I give thanks for radiant healing even before it manifests. I am the radiant life of God in every moment of my life. I celebrate my life energy by making healthy choices, engaging in prayer and meditation, and living in peace. God-life flows through me and all creation, and I am grateful!
Look to him, and be radiant.–Psalm 34:5

Sunday, December 2, 2012

Let Go Let God Have Faith

Christ in me is perfect life, love and substance.

Christ in me is my spiritual self; it is without beginning or end. I was created in the image and likeness of God, a perfect spiritual being. This perfection is the Christ in me. It is the part of me that is unchanging and indestructible. The Christ in me is perfect life, love and substance. My hope and faith are focused on fulfilling the Christ potential in my body, in my mind and in my heart. Nothing is impossible; nothing is too difficult to handle. The perfection of the Christ Spirit is working in and through me. This Presence loves, guides and supports me. It helps me heal my body and relationships. It inspires me to move mountains. I have faith in the Christ within.
We have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit that is from God.—1 Corinthians 2:12

Saturday, December 1, 2012

Let Go Let God Provide Acceptance

As a creation of God, I shine my light into the world.

I am a unique creation of God in a divinely created world. I am right where I belong. If I ever feel as though I don’t fit in, I remember I am loved by Spirit, created by God and accepted just as I am. As an individual with unique skills and abilities, I am here to express the qualities of Spirit only I can express. I bring a special light and love to every experience. In what I think, say and do, I make a positive difference in the world. I allow God’s spirit to shine brightly in and through me. All that is good, all that is loving, all that is intelligent, all that is acceptable lives in me, for God’s spirit is within me. As I become more accepting of myself and others, I am accepted. I belong; I am in my perfect place.
He delivered me, because he delighted in me. —Psalm 18:19

Friday, November 30, 2012

Let Go Let God with Clarity

The mind of God lives in me—clear and full of strength and wisdom.

When I look too closely at a problem, I can lose perspective. Caught up in the details, I cannot see the whole picture. Just as one must look past the trees to see the forest, I must look past minor setbacks to appreciate the full picture of my potential. Centering myself in God, I step back from the situation and trust the spirit of God within me to provide understanding and direction. From this perspective, I see more clearly and respond more confidently. The mind of God lives in me. It is clear and full of strength and wisdom. With faith in the infinite intelligence of God within, I move forward with clarity and assurance.
I will instruct you and teach you the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you. —Psalm 32:8

Thursday, November 29, 2012

Let Go Let God Provide Comfort

The assurance of God’s love is my comfort.

When I am feeling distressed, I rest in the assurance of God’s love and I am comforted.
God’s love is constant. It cannot be diminished by anything I have or haven’t done. It cannot be withheld by others or dampened by physical or emotional pain. God’s love is my ready source of comfort. Releasing outward appearances, I breathe deeply to quiet any concerns. I then move my attention into my heart space. My gentle breathing reveals God’s love radiating from the very center of my being, spreading throughout my body. I pause, relaxing in the assurance of God’s love. I am always and forever God’s beloved child. Comforted, I face whatever challenges are before me.
Let your steadfast love become my comfort according to your promise to your servant.—Psalm 119:76

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

Let Go Let God Listen

I am listening.
 In seeking divine guidance, I turn within and consciously listen to the Christ presence within me. Whenever opportunities or challenges occur, I pause … ask … listen … and receive a calm assurance. Although my answers come in various ways, I recognize the still small voice of God. I am aware of growing feelings and intuitive nudges calling for my attention. When I have the chance to help someone in need, I seek to be an instrument of peace and caring support. Often the greatest gift I can give someone is listening from my heart. I wish to be a channel through which God works, and I open myself to be a loving presence. Prayerfully, I ask and listen for guidance on what to say or do.

All the people would get up early in the morning to listen to him in the temple.—Luke 21:38

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

Let Go Let God in Progress

Practice makes progress.

Chipping away at an unfinished project or striving to adopt a positive new habit may at times leave me feeling disheartened. I may even want to throw in the towel. To stay encouraged, I remind myself: Practice makes perfect. Or, better yet: Practice makes progress! Rather than trying to be perfect, I practice to keep moving in the right direction. Every bit of progress is good, even if it falls short of perfection. The affirmation, Practice makes progress, keeps me motivated and gives me the energy boost to keep going. I continue taking small yet significant steps without stress or discouragement, and I feel a growing sense of accomplishment. Practice really does make great progress!
Put these things into practice, devote yourself to them, so that all may see your progress.—1 Timothy 4:15

Let Go, Let God

I let go and let Divine Life fulfill itself in and through me.

The phrase “let go and let God” is more than an effective affirmation. It is a way of life. When problems or challenges arise, I make a conscious decision to see myself in unity with Divine Life, to let go of my attachment to a problem and yield to a spiritual solution. This is when I am truly letting go and letting God. God lives in me and flows freely through me. God in me is my path to freedom, abundance, peace and harmony. If I become mired in fear, doubt and frustration, I block the flow of God-life. Letting go opens me to the power of inspiration, insight, wisdom and love. I let go and let God manifest in my life as new adventure, unexpected pleasures and unlimited potential. I live in unity with God.
Let the Lord your God show us where we should go and what we should do.—Jeremiah 42:3

Sunday, November 25, 2012

Let Go Let God Provide Healing

The spirit of God renews me.

Whether I am awake or asleep, my body performs millions of vital functions without my conscious involvement. I may take this for granted until I pause to think how blessed I am to be a creation of God; then I cannot help but be in awe of the Master Creator. God is life, and I am the projection of that life into visibility. The spirit of God enlivens and renews me. I praise God through my feelings, thoughts and words of gratitude. My whole being—mind, body and spirit—responds positively to praise. Whether I speak silently or aloud, in words or in songs, I bless my entire being with life and vitality through the power of praise and gratitude.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; that I know very well.—Psalm 139:14

Saturday, November 24, 2012

Let Go Let God in Harmony

I join my voice and heart with others.
The real joy of music occurs when voices and instruments come together to create a “beautiful noise.” A drum keeps the beat; a soprano sings a solo; the music includes loud crescendos and silent pauses. Each participant plays an important role, and the piece would be incomplete without them all. In Spirit, we are all one. There is no disharmony, no separation, nothing to keep us apart. Each of us contributes uniquely to the song of the world. The song inside of me is one of joy, peace, love and praise. My song is guided by the spirit of God in my heart. As I share my song with others, we join our voices and hearts in loving harmony, and the world is uplifted.
Jumping up, he stood and began to walk, and he entered the temple with them, walking and leaping and praising God.—Acts 3:8

Let Go Let God Be Free

I freely express my divine nature.

Beyond the categories of nationality, race or religion, people are more similar than different. We all laugh and cry, we all love. We seek freedom and joy, and we seek to know and connect with the God of our understanding as best we can. Yet while our oneness connects us, every person lives as an individual expression of the Divine, and we are free to express our divine nature in our own unique way. When I embrace compassion, I free myself from judgment. As I seek opportunities to serve, I free myself from selfishness. In finding ways to share, I free myself from lack. When I see God within myself, I find God as the essence of all, and I am free to love fully.
There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus.—Galatians 3:28

Let Go Let God Be Grateful

I breathe into a state of all-encompassing gratitude.

As long as I have breath, I have life. As long as I have life, I am grateful. I draw in deep, calming breaths that spread through my body, enlivening my senses. I breathe in gratitude for all I see, hear, taste, smell and touch. I am grateful for my loved ones, my home and for the myriad blessings in my life. With my next breath, I dive deeper into gratefulness, breathing in gratitude for my oneness with God. I am grateful for who I am in God—whole, beautiful and irrepressible. With an energizing, amplifying breath, I breathe out any disquiet in my soul. Poised in an elevated awareness of gratitude, I give thanks for all experiences: the physical and the mystical.
I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart.—Psalm 86:12

Let Go Let God with Expectation

I am centered in divine love and full of positive expectation.

Some people anticipate family gatherings with joyful expectation; others, with a sense of dread. Expectation is actually a powerful state of mind that can shape our experiences. If I am expecting an unpleasant experience, I may be replaying a painful past. Rather than recreate the same experience, I change my expectation. The past exists only in memory, so I let it go and begin anew. Regardless of what happens around me, I remain centered in what happens within me. I meet others with divine understanding and love. I am compassionate and kind. I release the need to change others, and I myself am changed. I am a radiating center of divine light, love and peace, full of positive expectation.
There is hope …, says the Lord: your children shall come back to their own country.—Jeremiah 31:17

Let Go Let God in Creativity

I express my divine creativity!

If I am feeling uncreative, I gently release that notion and graciously accept the many gifts that are inherently mine as a child of God. I am a creative expression of God, and God expresses creatively through me. Creativity is the ability to make, produce or bring something into existence through my actions or behaviors. While creativity is often associated with arts and music, its breadth has no limits. Whether I mix ingredients for a cake, teach a child, or organize a community, I am expressing my creative nature.
My creations begin with an idea and come into fruition through the activity of my imagination, thoughts and actions. I express my gifts in many ways every day, and I joyfully share what I have created.
Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit.—1 Corinthians 12:4

Let Go Let God with Inner Peace

I am filled with the calm presence of God.

Activities and gatherings may pack my schedule during the holiday season. Sometimes it can seem overwhelming. Yet in the midst of any busyness, I can find peace and calm within. In the morning, I experience the peace of a new day dawning. If I feel stress or anxiety coming on, I close my eyes and breathe deeply. I focus on a spiritual idea, such as love, peace or harmony, and repeat it softly in my mind. This practice helps me make an inner connection with the Spirit of Peace and Order, and I open to inner tranquility.
Throughout the day, I turn within to find my center—to find God. As I attend to my tasks and activities, I carry the presence of God with and within me, and I am at peace.
Put things in order … and the God of love and peace will be with you.—2 Corinthians 13:11

Let Go Let God Be Supported

God is my resource and my help.

I am never without means of support. Information and ideas come to me through authors and experts, people in my community or friends and family members. Yet these are simply outward expressions of the Source of my supply. God within is my Source, and the best way to tap into God is through prayer. Prayer is my channel to the all-knowing wisdom of God. In prayer, I receive divine ideas that guide me to the help I need. If I have doubts or concerns about my choices or decisions, I turn within in prayer. Prayer focuses my attention on God and I become an open receptor of inspiration. Centered in God, I have unlimited resources and wisdom. Centered in God, I am guided to my good.
You are indeed my rock and my fortress; for your name’s sake lead me and guide me.—Psalm 31:3

Let Go Let God Forgive

As I forgive, I connect in oneness with the Divine.

Forgiveness may sometimes seem daunting, but it is essential to my spiritual progress. If I hold resentment, blame or unforgiveness in my heart, I feel separated from the Divine. But when I am willing to forgive and let go of anger and guilt, I feel the love of God supporting me in every way. When I forgive, I am not granting anyone permission to harm me or someone else. I am releasing the energy I have carried about mistakes I and others have made. The past is the past, and I free myself to move forward with compassion, love and kindness toward myself and others. As I forgive, I change my thoughts, words and actions, re-experiencing my oneness with the Divine.
Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.—Matthew 6:12

Let Go Let God in Divine Order

I allow divine ideas to manifest into full expression.

When I plant a seed, I imagine the harvest to come. Then, as I gather the harvest, I remember the seed and acknowledge the many stages of orderly growth and change from the time of sowing to the time of reaping. Divine order underlies creation in all its forms. Whether I plant a garden in my yard or plant seed thoughts in my own mind, I rely on divine order to bring about fruition. I carefully choose the thoughts I hold, for I know they produce after their kind. I let go of unwanted thoughts that may crowd in, and instead anticipate a bountiful harvest of opportunities to come. I give my garden of ideas time to grow, knowing they will mature into full expression in due time.
The earth produces of itself, first the stalk, then the head, then the full grain in the head.—Mark 4:28

Let Go Let God in Faith

Faith is my way to wellness.

If a health challenge leaves me fraught with worry, faith is my bridge from despair to hope. Faith assures me of something more than my eyes can see or my mind can conceive. Regardless of appearances, I have faith in the power of God within to heal me. Step by step, thought by thought, I affirm this truth. My body knows how to heal and my healing has already begun. I place my faith in the God Presence. Being gentle with myself, I wait until I am ready to take the next step in my healing journey. Relief and release carry me forward. Hope grows and worry falls behind. I take a new step in faith, envisioning myself whole and well, and according to my faith, it is done. Faith is my way to wellness.
Then he touched their eyes and said, “According to your faith let it be done to you.”—Matthew 9:29

Let Go Let God Open to Understanding

I open my mind and heart to new understanding.

Misunderstandings often erupt between people who hold differing convictions. As I grow in spiritual awareness, I recognize that the answer to every dispute requires a deeper understanding of our true nature. Attuned to the presence of God within all people, I realize we all want the same things: security, safety, abundance, wholeness, opportunities, love, respect and peace of mind and heart. The more clearly I understand my own connection with Spirit, the better I understand the desires and needs of others. Through a deeper awareness of Oneness, I find ways to foster peace within my family, cooperation at work, oneness in my community and harmony in our world.
Give me understanding, that I may keep your law and observe it with my whole heart.–Psalm 119:34

Let Go Let God Provide Guidance

Divine wisdom leads me to my highest good.

At times I may feel confused or uncertain about a situation in my life. Yet there is always One to whom I may go for counsel and guidance, One who will show me the way. Regardless of how difficult a problem may appear, the presence of God within me is my help at all times. If I have been trying to solve challenges on my own, now is the time to turn within for answers. I give no power to the confusing situation. Instead, a feeling of peace and certainty fills my heart as I listen to God. Divine wisdom reveals the choice that is right for me, and my path becomes clear. I confidently turn to God within, and I am assured of divine direction, blessed and protected by the One.
In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.—Proverbs 3:6

Let Go Let God in Joy

I am a vessel for God’s joy.

The joy of God rises up in me like a pure spring of water in the desert. This joy feeds and flourishes all that it touches. As I feel it in my heart, I express it in my words and manner, and those around me are uplifted. The joy of God lifts me out of any sorrow and reawakens in me happiness, light and love. I offer a humble prayer of gratitude. My joy is a reflection of the kingdom of God, and I am a vessel for God’s joy. Every expression of joy arising in me is evidence of the presence of God in my life. Joy bubbles up as laughter, enfolds a moment of beauty, and flows out in a sigh of peace. I exude joy from the great abundance that is mine.
You bestow on him blessings forever; you make him glad with the joy of your presence.—Psalm 21:6

Let Go Let God Be My Protection

I put on the armor of divine love and wisdom.

In medieval times, protective armor shielded those in battle from harm. To protect myself from harm, and from fear, pain or anger, I suit up in God’s armor of love and security. I symbolically slip on the all-­powerful breastplate of divine love and wisdom, attainable through meditation and prayer. I become so aware of God’s love and power that I feel it within me as a part of me. God’s presence fortifies me against anything that does not promote peace, love or harmony. With God as my protection, I experience a divine defense. Nothing can disturb the peace in my soul. I stand tall trusting the strength and protection of God within. The armor of divine love and wisdom shields me through any challenge.
Put on the whole armor of God.—Ephesians 6:11

Let Go Let God in Transition

I am open and receptive to all of life’s changes.

In many regions, autumn is a time of change and transition. The air becomes cooler, the leaves change color and fall to the ground, and days become shorter. Just as the seasons change to allow God’s life-giving cycle to do its powerful work, my life changes to allow God’s life-giving presence to do its work in me. Every change is an opportunity to experience new blessings and new joys and to become more spiritually attuned. Life is activity, movement and growth. I have no interest in resisting change; rather, I have a receptive spirit, an open mind and a willingness to learn. I give thanks for the transitions—the changes—in my life. I give thanks that my life is filled with wonder and newness.
I will send down the showers in their season; they shall be showers of blessing.—Ezekiel 34:26
