Let Go Let God Be Boundless

I grow boundlessly in Christ Consciousness.

As a spiritual being, I am not bound by the past. Every day is a new beginning. Each new year brings boundless opportunities for growing in Christ Consciousness as I deepen my relationship with God. I gratefully release the past, appreciating all that contributed to my current spiritual awareness. With expectancy, I turn my thoughts to the riches of the coming year. I aspire to live a Christ-centered life. Whatever my possessions or social status, my wealth is found in kindness, forgiveness, and wholeness. I seek first the kingdom of God, and I am enfolded in boundless Christ Love. With heart and mind open, I give and receive boundless riches in the coming new year!
This grace was given to me to bring to the Gentiles the news of the boundless riches of Christ. —Ephesians 3:8

Let Go Let God Create

I give birth to greater potential in me.

“Within you is a limitless, unborn potential of creativity and substance, and the present experience can be your great opportunity to give birth to it.” This affirmation from Eric Butterworth speaks to me. My present experience is a catalyst for growth. It allows me to give birth to more of my potential. Challenges are a call to grow spiritually as I tap into my divine strength. All things are possible through God in me. I ask, listen to divine ideas, open myself wholeheartedly to Spirit’s guidance, and then act. As I cocreate with God, I let the seed of creativity grow within me. My potential expands, and I receive Life’s blessings.
You have been born anew, not of perishable but of imperishable seed, through the living and enduring word of God.—1 Peter 1:23

Let Go Let God in Life

I am alive, alert, and enthusiastic about life!

I am the life of God, sacred and eternal. Made in God’s image and likeness, I live my life fully and completely, giving thanks for all that I give and all that I receive. I am alert to life’s call as I become more attuned to the Creator’s presence within and around me. I am not a victim of circumstances or other people’s intentions. I stay focused on my own intentions—one of which is to give as much back to life as I can in every given moment. Spirit permeates all of my activities, and even my times of inactivity. I appreciate life and all its diverse and magnificent manifestations that continually fill my heart and soul.
The water that I will give will become in them a spring of water gushing up to eternal life.—John 4:14

Let Go Let God In Comfort

I rest in the comfort of Spirit.

When the weather is cold, I might find myself bundling up at home with extra blankets, turning up the thermostat, or warming myself in front of a crackling fire. I appreciate these resources, as they greatly enhance my feelings of ease, comfort, and stability. However, this may not always be my experience. Sometimes it can seem like life has rudely yanked off my cozy blankets and thrown me out in the cold! At such times, I am grateful for my faith. Instead of yearning for outer conditions to change, I rest in the true source of my comfort—Divine Spirit within me. Even in the midst of the roughest winter, I am warmed by faith and encouraged by the presence of the Divine.
This is my comfort in my distress, that your promise gives me life.—Psalm 119:50

Let Go Let God Be Patient

I am patient, kind, and loving.

The “Prayer of Faith” reminds me: “I now am wise, I now am true, patient and kind, and loving, too.” If I am having trouble being patient, it is a clue I have moved away from being kind and loving. I gently take a breath. I feel my attention move with the flow of my breath into my heart. I create a space for forgiveness and let go of irritation with myself and others. I have all the time, energy, and patience to accomplish what is mine to do. I am a loving expression of Spirit, and I am here to express my true nature in the world. I do not allow schedules, activities, or demands to convince me I have too little time to be the loving expression I am.
Love is patient; love is kind … It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful.—1 Corinthians 13:4-5

Let Go Let God in World Peace

As we become peaceful, peace fills the world.

The peace of God permeates my thoughts and restores me to harmony. Peace quiets every upset, confusion, or disagreement. Peaceful thoughts have the power to harmonize and create cooperation and understanding. Stillness of mind is the foundation for harmonious conditions in my body. Every cell and nerve responds to calming thoughts.
As the peace of God is established in my mind, body, and affairs, peace pervades my world. Once peace is established in me, I help raise a consciousness of peace throughout the world. Today I bring peace into all I think, say, and do, fostering harmony with all.
The effect of righteousness will be peace, and the result of righteousness, quietness and trust forever.—Isaiah 32:17

Let Go Let God Share This Gift

I share the gift of God’s love, and I am blessed.

Every faith tradition has stories about the exchange of gifts. Perhaps the greatest story begins, “For God so loved the world …” The love of the Creator for its creation is infinite. Our Christmas gifts are a representation of our affection for one another. Behind the wrapping and substance of every gift is the intention of sharing God’s love. Jesus came as a demonstration of God’s love for the world and to teach us our ability to be that love. I am grateful for all the love I have experienced and all I have to share. I remember those who have taught me, guided me, and loved me. On this day, I rejoice in every gift of love.
Suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace among those whom he favors!”—Luke 2:13-14

Let Go Let God I Am Ready

Christ in me is my hope of glory.

This Christmas Eve I commemorate the rebirth of the Christ Spirit within me. Grateful for the Advent journey of preparation, I know that faith, peace, love, and joy are renewed in me. I receive the Christ with an open and ready heart. I anticipate abundant good for myself and my dear ones. I accept the gifts of Spirit, which give form and shape to the highest possibilities in every area of my life. Christ in me truly is my hope of glory. Expecting only good, I prepare myself to bring forth the glory, the potential, and the essence of God. I listen to my heart rejoicing as I rest in the stillness of this sacred night.
The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be holy; he will be called Son of God.—Luke 1:35

Let Go Let God with Praise

I praise God. All is good.

We create our life experiences through our thinking, and praise expands our experience of good. When I hold positive thoughts, I pave the way for positive results. I live in a world of infinite possibility. As I praise what is good and true, my awareness of the abundance of the Universe expands. As I praise the goodness in me and others, I unleash a plethora of blessings. The Universe supports my thinking and supplies my needs. Powerful, positive thoughts lead to powerful, positive outcomes. I praise God for my life, and all is well.
Now, our God, we give thanks to you and praise your glorious name.—1 Chronicles 29:13

Let Go Let God Rejoice

I welcome each day with zeal and enthusiasm.

Few experiences are more joyous than watching children at Christmas time as they gaze in awe at the colorful lights, make wish lists, and decorate the tree with their favorite ornaments. Like a child, I enjoy this special season of wonder and excitement. I vow to keep my sense of joy with me as I move through the year ahead. I enjoy gazing in awe at the beauty of nature, making wish lists for my life’s goals and accomplishments, and decorating my environment with my favorite embellishments. As I rejoice in each new day, I carry the beauty of life with me wherever I go, whatever I do. Life offers me opportunities to celebrate at every turn. I embrace all of life with anticipation, zeal, and enthusiasm.
Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, O righteous, and shout for joy, all you upright in heart.—Psalm 32:11

Let Go Let God Provide Growth

Every day in every way my awareness of God increases!

In winter, an abundance of potential lies beneath the ground. If I were to unearth the seeds and bulbs that have been planted, I would sabotage the emergence of grass and flowers in the spring. So I wait and allow them to be nourished by an unseen source of abundance. Similarly, I have within me untapped potential. As I patiently nourish it with prayer and preparation, faith and commitment, new growth will emerge in ways I never imagined. Regardless of my age, I can always grow in maturity and understanding to live my life more fully. As my awareness of God expands, so do the inner qualities of Spirit that enhance my every experience.
I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth.—1 Corinthians 3:6

Let Go Let God Be Treasured

Times spent with loved ones are deeply treasured gifts.

Some people treasure jewels and gold, but my greatest gems are connection and companionship with my loved ones. Jesus told of a man who buried his treasure in a field, then sold everything to buy that field. As I know the value of togetherness, I gladly invest in happy moments with those I love. Whether I am planning to be with loved ones in the coming days or simply enjoying cherished memories, our times together are deeply valuable to my soul. Whether I spend time with family, longtime friends, neighbors, or colleagues, I cherish the love, companionship, and joy we share. I appreciate our moments of connection. I treasure the special people who enrich my life.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.—Luke 12:34

Let Go Let God Provide Healing

The light of God surrounds me, and I am whole.

The “Prayer for Protection” opens with: “The light of God surrounds me.” When I am seeking healing, I consider the power of this affirmation. The light of God not only surrounds me, it infuses my very being. It helps me see beyond appearances and remember my innate wholeness, even in the face of disease or discomfort. The light of God radiates through my mind and body. It energizes and illuminates my wholeness. I am created of God. My body mends and my mind rejuvenates because this is my essential nature. Life comes with gifts and challenges. In and through it all, the light of God surrounds me, and I am whole.
Then your light shall break forth like the dawn, and your healing shall spring up quickly.–Isaiah 58:8

Let Go, Let God

I embrace a new life.

Living in the past is like having a boat stuck in a swamp while its destiny is to sail the open seas. I may have been stuck in stagnant waters as part of my human experience, but now I am ready to let go of my struggle and create a joyful life. As I let go of old habits, I open myself to new possibilities. I understand that I don’t have to personally control everything for life to work out. I release old ways of trying to force outcomes as I surrender the helm to my Higher Consciousness. As I set sail with the Divine, I welcome new insights and surrender to the good that awaits me. I trust the process of Life, daring to leave behind the safe harbor of old ways. With Divine Power at my back, I guide my ship to the open sea of my new life.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart.—Proverbs 3:5

Let Go Let God in Prosperity

I give and receive in a spirit of joy.

With heartfelt gratitude and joy, I acknowledge all I have. Divine energy is the source of my supply, and I fully align myself with it. I open myself to the flow of divine substance by asking for what I need in prayer and giving thanks in advance for its fulfillment. I know my needs are always met. I raise my prosperity consciousness by maintaining an attitude of gratitude, releasing thoughts of lack or limitation, and joyfully sharing what I have with others. I give and receive with love and joy. The fulfillment of our needs is part of our divine inheritance. I use and share the good that I receive wisely and graciously.
Then King Darius wrote to all peoples and nations of every language throughout the whole world: “May you have abundant prosperity!”—Daniel 6:25

Let Go Let God Forgive

I open my heart to forgive.

Poet Alexander Pope wrote: “To err is human; to forgive, divine.” In my humanity, I occasionally make a poor choice, act impulsively, or speak thoughtlessly. When I do, I may be self-critical or feel guilty. But I have the power to make amends, correct my errors, and forgive. As my source of love and understanding, the Divine within empowers me to forgive myself and others. I open my heart, and compassion arises. I see the beauty and value of every human being, including myself. Forgiveness frees me to experience my oneness with the Divine. It opens the way to fulfilling relationships and honest communication. My heart is ready to forgive myself and others.
Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.—Matthew 6:12

Let Go Let God with Love

I experience the warmth of God’s love.

As Christmas approaches, the warmth of this season inspires me. Even on the coldest of days, God’s love is alive and well, expressing through me and through others as kindness, consideration, and understanding. I am grateful for the love that brings people together, overcomes obstacles, and heals all wounds. Through the power of love, doors open, friendships broaden, and family connections deepen. As I allow God’s love to flow in and through me, my awareness of my Christ nature grows. As my love expands, I reach out to others and I express my feelings more readily. The presence of Love abides in me, and I am grateful.
As the Father has loved me, so I have loved you; abide in my love.—John 15:9

Let Go Let God Be Free

I am free from limiting thoughts.

If I long for freedom, I pause to examine any limiting beliefs. I release any notion that I lack a quality or possession necessary for me to be happy and healthy—I am perfect and whole, just as I am. Everything is possible as I tear down the barriers I have constructed in my mind. I give no power to any thought that I am less than another. I am not bound by past actions or beliefs. I have the power within me to claim my divine inheritance and live free from limiting thoughts. In the Silence within, I have access to all the energy, wisdom, compassion, and peace I need. This is the promise of my Creator.
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and … to let the oppressed go free.—Luke 4:18

Let Go Let God in Divine Order

My spirit is in tune with the order of the Universe.

Today I sing a song of praise and love to the Creator of the Universe! I rejoice, for my life is in harmony with the order of All That Is. My dreams, thoughts, and actions are part of a majestic and orderly creation. Even my challenges have purpose, for they help me discover hidden strengths and talents. If I feel out of sorts, I take time for play, prayer, and meditation. Just as an instrument needs tuning to produce the best melody, I need to attune myself with the good Spirit has prepared for me. I take part in this wondrous creation by letting go of fear, being fully me, and accepting myself as a vital part of the order of the Universe.
By day the Lord commands his steadfast love, and at night his song is with me, a prayer to the God of my life.—Psalm 42:8

Let Go Let God Pray for Others

I thank God with every prayer.

One of the greatest gifts I can give to another is to pray for them. I have faith in the power of prayer. Connecting with the indwelling Spirit in prayer, I shape my thoughts and words carefully, affirming the Truth. I envision my prayer serving as a catalyst for a healing, an overcoming, a positive change in circumstances, or a creative idea. I do not have the answers for others, but God within them does. The love and presence of God knows no bounds. Whether I pray for someone in the same room or across the planet, I have faith in the right and perfect outcome. I do my part by affirming the Truth and giving thanks that all is well.
I thank my God every time I remember you, constantly praying with joy in every one of my prayers for all of you.—Philippians 1:3-4

Wednesday, December 11, 2013

Let Go Let God in Receiving

Today I graciously receive all manner of good.

Giving and receiving go hand in hand. I give to others, and I’m also receptive to the good that is shared with me. I allow others the joy of giving by graciously welcoming and accepting compliments, material gifts, and suggestions. As part of my spiritual practice today, I release any doubts about my worthiness to receive God’s abundant good. I accept blessings in whatever form they may appear. I open my mind and heart to joy, love, prosperity, and all the good in life. I may have overlooked certain blessings before because they showed up in unexpected ways. Today, with a refreshed heart and mind, I gratefully and graciously embrace every blessing in my life.
My people shall be satisfied with my bounty, says the Lord.—Jeremiah 31:14

Let Go Let God in Harmony

The peace and harmony of God flow through me.

Eric Butterworth wrote, “Things may happen around you, and things may happen to you, but the only things that really count are the things that happen in you.” Do I allow outer circumstances to disturb my sense of well-being or do I focus on maintaining harmony in mind, body, and spirit? I center in my heart space, breathe deeply, and feel the peace of God flow through me. From the crown of my head to the tip of my toes, I allow the weight of life’s outer circumstances to dissipate. I infuse my body with thoughts of divine peace, love, and acceptance. As I achieve harmony on the inside, I express harmony to the world.
Strive first for the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.—Matthew 6:33

Let Go Let God Express the Divine

I am a spiritual being; I am connected to everything.

I am a spiritual being, an expression of Divine Light, Life, and Love. I acknowledge and appreciate the gifts of Spirit in me and in everyone. As an expression of Divine Light, I am infused with the wisdom of God and guided in wise ways. As an expression of Divine Life, I am filled with powerful healing energy that renews and revitalizes my body temple. As an expression of Divine Love, I embrace all people, animals, and the planet as a whole. I am keenly aware of the powerful connection I share with all inhabitants of Earth. I honor and protect the delicate balance necessary to coexist. I am grateful for the gift of spiritual expression as Light, Life, and Love permeating all that exists in this world.
O Lord, our Sovereign, how majestic is your name in all the earth!—Psalm 8:1

Let Go Let God for Inner Peace

The Christ within is my source of peace.

Advent has begun. It is a season of faith, peace, love, and joy; a time of preparing for the celebration of the Christ—the divine perfection in each one of us. The Christ is my source of peace. Whether I am gazing in solitude at a star-filled sky or caught in the bustle of a holiday crowd, inner peace is always available to me. I am grateful for the sense of well-being that fills my mind and heart. During this season, I turn my awareness to the presence of peace in me. It is my constant source of serenity, my ballast in the storms of life. It is a steadying presence in all situations. I give thanks for the Christ within—my ever-present source of peace.
For a child has been born for us … and he is named Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.—Isaiah 9:6

Saturday, December 7, 2013

Let Go Let God in Personal Retreat

My awareness of God grows in the Silence.

In my spiritual practice, I may need to move away from the crowd and find time alone with God. Whether I go to a formal retreat center, take a walk in nature, or create a few hours of quiet time at home, I find solace in my time with God. I let this be my retreat from the activities of the world, a time to cleanse my mind and be nurtured by Spirit. In the Silence, I find a place of serenity where I know the Truth—the spirit of God dwells in me. In the midst of my personal retreat, my awareness of God is magnified. I affirm God’s power, I am enfolded by God’s love, and I am guided by God’s light. Refreshed and renewed, I return to my activities with joy and enthusiasm.
For God alone my soul waits in silence; from him comes my salvation.—Psalm 62:1

Let Go Let God in Synchronicity

Divine Love is continually revealing itself to me.

As I align my heart and mind with Spirit, I become increasingly aware of amazing events in my life that might be called “happy coincidences.” Perhaps an old friend calls unexpectedly and tells me exactly what I need to know for an important assignment. Or maybe I meet someone special at an event I hesitated to attend. I am grateful for divine synchronicities. They remind me that I am connected to everyone and everything. Aware of my kinship with all of life, I feel immense love and joy. Nothing happens by chance; all is in divine order. Synchronicities may be viewed as glimpses of Divine Love’s presence, which brightens my day and illumines my way.
We know that all things work together for good for those who love God.—Romans 8:28

Let Go Let God Day By Day

Day by day, I experience the greatness of God.

Yesterday is gone and tomorrow has not yet begun—today is here and now. How will I make this day count? What thoughts will I hold in mind? What tasks will I accomplish? How many lives will I touch? Life is lived day by day, moment by moment. When I look at my life, I see a tapestry, each experience interwoven in a pattern that is uniquely mine. The overall design emerges more every day. I do not need to worry about tomorrow! Instead, I joyously live for today and look forward to the blessings that unfold, revealing the beautiful tapestry of my life. Today I hold the intention to create wonderful moments. I choose to bless others and experience the greatness of God.
Our inner nature is being renewed day by day. —2 Corinthians 4:16

Let Go Let God it is Possible

All things are possible for those who believe.

Sometimes my mind may fix on lack or insufficiency—“I don’t have enough”; “There isn’t enough time”; “That idea is impractical.” But I need not limit my vision of what is possible. Just because something was not part of my past does not mean it cannot be part of my future. Thoughts of doubt and insecurity are simply remnants of an old paradigm that obscure my view. I am grateful that outdated patterns of thinking can be changed once they are acknowledged. I release thoughts that have limited me in the past and open to divine ideas, which are ever-present. Greater healing, prosperity, and success are mine to claim as an expression of God. A new life is possible for me now.
For mortals it is impossible, but not for God; for God all things are possible.—Mark 10:27

Tuesday, December 3, 2013

Let Go Let God Provide Guidance

Spirit guides and nurtures my soul.

I am always divinely directed. If I don’t know what to do or say, I remember there is an inexhaustible source of guidance in my soul. I free myself from any belief of ignorance. I release any fears of insufficiency or inability, and return to the inner stillness, where wisdom arises. I stay quiet and murmur a prayer, “God, speak to me.” I cultivate the custom of turning to God every time I need direction. In my daily practice, I ask Spirit to speak to my soul. I open my heart, wait patiently, and listen to the sweet whisper of my inner voice. I gratefully receive what is mine to do today. God’s infinite wisdom is always available for me to draw upon. It guides me in loving ways.

For it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.—Matthew 10:20

Monday, December 2, 2013

Let Go Let God in Heaven

I delight in all the joys of heaven, right here and now.

I would never want to postpone my good or delay the manifestation of heavenly blessings. Heaven is not a future destination; heaven is everywhere present. Heaven is a state of consciousness in harmony with God. The spirit of God is alive and active in me. This Spirit is not only the source of all good, but good itself. Space and time cannot separate me from my good. Here and now, I enjoy all the good there is to enjoy. The blessings of heaven are poured out upon me and I am receptive to their manifestation. I give thanks that I am blessed with peace, health, and plenty. I am blessed by the grace of God.
Nor will they say, “Look, here it is!’ or “There it is!’ For, in fact, the kingdom of God is among you. —Luke 17:21

Sunday, December 1, 2013

Let Go Let God in Faith

Faith fills my heart and mind.

It takes great faith to bring a baby into the world. For Mary, two thousand years ago, who was told she was carrying a child of infinite potential, it must have taken great faith indeed! As Jesus grew and began his ministry, he taught that we are each filled with infinite potential. He said that with faith, “nothing will be impossible for you.” We unleash this potential when we believe in ourselves and trust in the divine within.
As I move into this sacred season of Christmas, I celebrate my Christ nature. With faith in my heart, I embrace the divine potential that is in me.
If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, “Move from here to there,” and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.—Matthew 17:20

Let Go Let God Forgive

The presence of love in me heals and restores my soul.

I know I am only hurting myself when I am unforgiving. Yet even if I want to forgive, I may find it difficult. If I am unsure whether I have the strength to move forward, I bring to mind a simple truth: I am not only human; I am also divine. I can call upon the spirit of God in me for help in releasing the burden of unforgiveness. The moment I turn to God, Divine Love begins its work supporting me on my journey to freedom and wholeness. As I forgive myself with compassion and understanding and release any feelings of guilt, I am able to extend the same to others. I set myself free and release others to God. I am healed by the power of love in me.
Let us love one another, because love is from God; everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.–1 John 4:7

Let Go Let God in Goodwill

I am a generous giver and willing receiver.

Generosity is encoded in my DNA, for I am one with the greatest Giver of all. God has endowed us with life and all its blessings. One with God, I always have enough to spare and share. I am a generous giver. I do not give in order to gain attention for myself or to demonstrate how generous I can be. Rather, I am openhanded because I love to give.
I am not only a bountiful giver; I am also a willing receiver. When I receive with gratitude, I play an important role in the circulation of God’s good. I am open, worthy, and receptive to the gifts showered upon me from a generous and abundant Universe.
When you give alms, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your alms may be done in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you.—Matthew 6:3-4

Thursday, November 28, 2013

Let Go Let God in Gratitude

I am grateful. I am blessed.

As I awake each morning, I express my gratitude. What a powerful way to start the day and a mighty attitude to carry with me as my day unfolds! An attitude of gratitude makes for a more fulfilling journey and an increased awareness of God’s blessings. If a challenging circumstance arises and I struggle to maintain a grateful heart, I take a moment to adjust my perspective. I pray that my eyes—and my heart—be opened to God’s good. Blessings are present in every circumstance—there is no spot where God is not! Even if it is not readily apparent, a blessing is here for me if I open my eyes to see. Aware and open to God’s infinite goodness, I enjoy and appreciate every blessing.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise.—Psalm 100:4

Let Go Let God Be Light

The light of God shines bright in me.

The light of God illumines my way at all times and through every experience. In the Light, inspiration is revealed. If I experience a time of inner turmoil, I know where to turn—the light of God within me cannot be extinguished by any circumstance. It is during life’s more difficult times that I experience how good God truly is. I gain understanding. I realize I am not alone. I witness my own transformation. In Spirit, there is no darkness, only light. The window of my soul opens to new awakenings. As the radiance of God shines through me and my experience, it inspires others. I look to the Divine within to illumine my path as I move through and overcome any challenge.
No one after lighting a lamp puts it in a cellar, but on the lampstand so that those who enter may see the light.—Luke 11:33

Tuesday, November 26, 2013

Let Go Let God Provide Understanding

I open to spiritual understanding.

If I face a relationship challenge, I may wonder, Why is this happening? Why do others act as they do? But judging others’ behaviors and motives will not bring me deep understanding. I could ask instead, How can I open my heart? What is mine to do? I pray for understanding and for intuition to recognize what might be lying beneath the surface. I trust the wisdom and guidance I receive. I open my heart and mind to seeing my loved one from a new perspective. As I listen to their views, empathize with them, and “walk a mile in their shoes,” I am able to more fully understand my loved one—and myself. Understanding builds a bridge and brings peace to my relationships.
Happy are those who find wisdom, and those who get understanding.—Proverbs 3:13

Let Go Let God with Inner Peace.

I embody peace.

Work deadlines, holiday planning, and family commitments can leave me feeling scattered and fatigued. As festivities approach, I may feel compelled to do more and more, and risk losing my center of peace. If I feel overwhelmed by demands, I find relief in prayer and meditation. I prepare myself to be present and joyful during every holiday activity, by first coming back to my inner space of tranquility. Peace is already inside me. As I retreat to a quiet place, I relax my body and soften my mind. In serenity, I embody peace and joy in all I do. Releasing any attachment to how things should be, I let go and enjoy the true meaning of the season: Embracing and expressing God’s peace.
Be still, and know that I am God!—Psalm 46:10

Let Go Let God in the Flow

The life and strength of Spirit flow through me now.

I am relaxed by the gurgle of a peaceful stream and amazed at the thunder of a magnificent waterfall. Water flows around and over obstacles without strain. By not resisting, water finds its natural way to the sea. Filled with Spirit’s wisdom, I know when to let go peacefully or when to gush with strength. As I center myself in the awareness of Spirit within, I flow easily past any challenges, moving naturally toward an ocean of good.
With gratitude, I affirm the power, peace, and energy of Infinite Spirit flowing through me now, and I am blessed.

He split rocks open in the wilderness, and gave them drink abundantly as from the deep. He made streams come out of the rock, and caused waters to flow down like rivers.—Psalm 78:15-16

Saturday, November 23, 2013

Let Go Let God in World Peace

I emanate peace to all the world.

At my very core, I am peace. Yet I may not always feel peaceful, especially when I am experiencing conflict with another person. Peace is not the absence of conflict; it is the ability to remain centered no matter how upsetting the situation. Peace always begins with me. As I focus on the peace of God within me, I access my calm center. I feel my body relax; my breathing slows down. The peace in me fills my heart and mind. With practice, I learn to live in this peaceful state of mind in any situation. When I find my peace, I offer peaceful responses to the world around me. I find and celebrate the points of connection with others.
The Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace.—Numbers 6:26

Let Go Let God in Grace

I live in the grace of God.

What must I do to earn the love of God? Nothing! God’s love is already mine. No one and nothing can limit or restrict it. I need only open my heart and mind to receive this unconditional love and allow myself to experience God’s grace. Grace is demonstrated in the beauty of nature, in unexpected good, in feeling my oneness with Spirit. In God’s grace, I am divinely guided, protected, and comforted. Grace softens my struggles and takes me beyond my self-imposed limitations, filling my mind with divine ideas and my life with serendipity. As I appreciate the activity of God in my life, I learn to trust in its continuing expression, and I soar in God’s grace.
From his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace.—John 1:16

Let Go Let God with Spiritual Faculties

I trust in the power of God within me.

In times of challenge, I trust in the spiritual faculties I derive from Divine Mind. I pray affirmatively, focusing on the divine quality I wish to activate. Whatever I feel I need has already been supplied. Do I need wisdom, faith, love, or will? Do I wish to express understanding or right judgment? These qualities are already mine. I activate my spiritual faculties through the power of my words, and I am able to express them easily. Whatever the circumstance, I am certain of the life, light, and love of God within me and within all people. Spiritual insight, strength, courage—these are the blessings of a God-centered life.

All these are activated by one and the same Spirit, who allots to each one individually just as the Spirit chooses.—1 Corinthians 12:11

Let Go Let God in Harmony

I live in harmony with God’s will, and my life is restored.

Nature has many ways to restore balance in our environment. Perhaps a fire clears away brush or a flood brings rich soil up onto the land. Nature is continuously restoring itself to harmony. God’s will for planet earth is harmony, and God’s will for my life is good. If I focus on the appearance of lack or the experience of loss, my life may feel out of balance. Time in prayer reminds me that God’s good is ever-present. I accept any imbalance as temporary, open my heart to God’s guidance, and stay alert for the ways the Universe restores balance in my life.

After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, support, strengthen, and establish you.—1 Peter 5:10

Let Go Let God Provide Healing

The life of God infuses my body.

Aware that my body responds to my thoughts and feelings, I release any worries I may have about health and healing. Instead, I focus my attention on the life of God within me. There is no disease or imperfection in God. I recognize this truth and celebrate the health and wholeness of my body temple. I thank my cells for their continuous renewal that provides my organs and tissues with new life. I marvel at the energy of God pulsing through my arteries. I am grateful that every system in my body is working to maintain balance and health. As I think about the many ways my body—God’s perfect creation—serves me, my heart fills with gratitude.
The spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life.—Job 33:4

Let Go Let God Be Free

Freedom is mine, and I claim it now!

I may feel stuck trying to break a habit or change a way of thinking to which I have become accustomed. Yet I can set free any thought or behavior pattern that keeps me from my heart’s desire. With compassion, I willingly release the patterns in me that cause me to feel stuck. I break free from limiting behavior through the power of God within. I consider what is true about me: I am infused with divine power, strength, and love. I am free to be and do all I have been created for. I choose positive habits and attitudes that support my well-being and bring my talents to the world. My God-given freedom is intrinsic to who I am. Right now, I claim my freedom, making my life all I want it to be.
As servants of God, live as free people.—1 Peter 2:16

Let Go Let God in Comfort

God is my comfort and my refuge.

Life is full of joy and sorrow, but no condition is beyond the comfort of Spirit. Whatever my experience, even before I voice my prayer, the comfort I seek is available to me. I have what I need for any situation—I ask and receive. No request is too great or too small. Each one invites answers, abundance, and comfort to arise within me. All that I need is available for me to claim in this very moment. Spirit in me is my comforter, inspiration, and guidance to manifest what I need. Gratitude fills my heart as I know my needs are met. I am sheltered in the loving embrace of the Divine Presence. Peace fills me, heart and soul. God is my comfort and my refuge.
We who have taken refuge might be strongly encouraged to seize the hope set before us. —Hebrews 6:18

Let Go Let God Take Positive Action

I am inspired to take positive action.

Although troubling situations in my own community or on the other side of the globe may leave me feeling disheartened, I have the courage, faith, and wisdom to know that I can be part of the solution. The One Power and Presence of God is more powerful than any circumstance—and that divine power lives in me. Through prayer and meditation, I discern what is mine to do. Whether it be writing a letter of support, building consensus among a concerned group of people, picking up trash or helping to repair a home, I can effect change by taking action. I set my intention and allow the presence of the Divine to guide my way.
Be doers of the word, and not merely hearers who deceive themselves.—James 1:22

Let Go Let God with Joy

I am filled with the joy of Spirit!

I spread joy by sharing a positive attitude, a smile, openness, and appreciation for all of life’s blessings. I am blessed in so many ways, and I rejoice with the glow of Spirit.
If others are pessimistic or glum, I do not take on their mood, but rather hold a positive thought for them, knowing “this too shall pass.” Instead of finding fault or complaint, I look for the best in each person. Goodness abounds as I open my eyes to witness it. The blessings of God I now see in my life fill my mind and heart with joy and thanksgiving. I give of my happiness freely, spreading the good I see and have. With energy and upliftment, I inspire those around me. Joy is contagious!
Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!—Psalm 95:2

Let Go Let God Be Found

The Christ Presence is always in me.

One lesson we learn from the Parable of the Lost Sheep is that we will never be abandoned. Just as a shepherd never leaves a lamb who has wandered off, the Christ Presence is always within us. If I have lost my way, I look within to my divine nature. In the silence of meditation, I relax into my spiritual center, the most sacred part of me. Once reestablished in the Christ Presence, I know where to go and what is mine to do. What is true for me is true for others. If a loved one is struggling to find their way, I bless them in their search and know they will be guided. Seeking is how we find, and I give thanks that their inner shepherd—their own Christ nature—will lead them home.
When he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders and rejoices.–Luke 15:5

Let Go Let God Provide Prosperity

I open my mind to plenty and receive with gratitude.

If I am experiencing lack of any kind, I may be thinking there is limited supply available to me. Although the abundance of God’s good is as vast as the ocean, I can only carry as much water as my container will hold. If I want to enjoy more, I must enlarge my container—expand my consciousness. In 2 Corinthians 9:8, it reads, “God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that by always having enough of everything, you may share abundantly in every good work.” This Truth resonates with me. I open my mind to plenty and receive with gratitude. I share my gifts abundantly, and I am prospered!
All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the prosperity.—Isaiah 54:13

Let Go Let God Pray for Others

I affirm all is well with your soul.

Throughout this day, I pray for others. I enter into this sacred activity with a peaceful heart, knowing the love of God is with each person for whom I pray. I let go of concerns, fears, or expectations and welcome the freedom of releasing outcomes to the Divine. I visualize the highest good occurring and behold vibrant health and well-being for everyone. I center myself in the quiet of prayer and experience the Silence. My role is to align my thoughts and feelings with divine ideas of wholeness, abundance, goodness, and peace. As I see beyond any appearance of limitation and behold the divine presence in others, I give thanks for answered prayer.
Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, just as it is well with your soul.—3 John 1:2

Let Go Let God with Honor

I honor my commitment to sacred service.

Jesus brought a message of supreme importance to the world. He taught about the power of love and about God as our indwelling, loving father. Even though delivering that message cost him his life, Jesus stood by his convictions. His message still lives today in our hearts and minds. In following the example of our Master Teacher, I desire to live a life of great purpose. I commit to living a God-centered life, and I honor that commitment through sacred service. I serve in joy, sharing my unique gifts and talents in ways that honor God, my family, and all people. I am honored by loving God and blessed by keeping my sacred commitments.
Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there will my servant be also. Whoever serves me, the Father will honor.—John 12:26

Let Go Let God Practice

I converse with God continually.

In a letter in the book The Practice of the Presence of God, Brother Lawrence writes, “There is not in the world a kind of life more sweet and delightful than that of a continual conversation with God. Those only can comprehend it who practice and experience it.” I am blessed by my continual connection with the Divine. God is with me in every breath, every experience, every prayer. I practice awareness of my constant bond with God in all I do. Through this practice, I experience peace and contentment. I walk through life knowing that the presence of God goes before me, guiding and protecting me. I am blessed as I practice this “sweet and delightful” conversation with God.
Put these things into practice, devote yourself to them.—1 Timothy 4:15
