Let Go Let God Celebrate

I celebrate the fullness of life.

Celebrations commonly occur on birthdays, anniversaries and holidays; yet all types of experiences make up the fullness of my life. In life I will face loss and challenge, joy and achievement. Understanding and appreciating the full spectrum of life’s experiences, I celebrate all points along the way. I celebrate the moments that lift me up and those that challenge me to step up. I praise every evidence of God’s goodness and every occasion where the activity of God comes into view. I am filled with joy and enthusiasm for living and loving all that life has to offer. Praise and celebration invite the good to spring forth. The fullness of life is a gift from God.
You shall celebrate with all the bounty that the Lord your God has given to you.—Deuteronomy 26:11

Let Go Let God Show Insight

Spiritual insight illumines my mind and guides my steps.

As I’m driving home on a stormy night, a flash of lightning illuminates the landscape. For an instant, I can see my way. Similarly, a flash of insight illumines my mind in the midst of a dark situation. In that instant, I see the true nature of a person or event. Insights are an essential element of wisdom, allowing me to discover solutions I could not fathom before. Insight does not come through striving or stress, grasping for answers or polling others for advice. I need only become quiet and still, and look to the kingdom of God within me. When I’m relaxed and receptive, spiritual insight comes. I have an “Aha!” experience. In a flash of insight, I know the mind of God is my ever-present source of wisdom.
The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom, and whatever else you get, get insight.—Proverbs 4:7

Let Go Let God in Harmony

I create harmony by tuning in to God’s perfect order.

When disharmony surfaces in my life, I can easily blame others for the discord or even lash out at them. But blame serves no positive purpose; it only delays peace. No matter how disagreeable someone may seem, I can still feel harmonious. In prayer, I seek common ground with others by blessing them. I attune myself to the harmony of God—the same divine principle that orchestrates the order of the universe. In challenging situations, I do not undermine the good work of prayer by reacting negatively. I let powerful, compassionate impressions seep into my mind until they direct my responses. I align with the harmony of God by prayerfully blessing all.
Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them.—Romans 12:14

Let Go Let God Provide Healing

The flow of Divine Life revitalizes me.

Just as life-giving waters replenish a parched land, the healing power of Divine Life replenishes me. I am body, mind and spirit. No aspect of my being is untouched by the healing life of God as it directs the healing of wounds and the casting off of dis-ease.
My body is infused with the energy and vitality of Divine Life. My cells dance with the vibration of wholeness, and I am strengthened. My heart and mind are enlivened and uplifted by the life of God within. Divine guidance is clear and I am confident of success. My spirit is a channel for the ever-renewing, ever-healing flow of Divine Life in me.
Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb.—Revelation 22:1

Let Go Let God Today

I am grateful for the wonders of this day.

God’s love surrounds me and expresses in both obvious and subtle ways. Setting aside the burdens of yesterday and any worries about tomorrow, I lovingly give my full attention to today. I mindfully notice and appreciate each present moment and each person I meet.
I tune in to God’s loving presence, whether I am alone in the Silence or immersed in the day’s busy routine. I feel the Presence in the rhythm of my breath and sense it in the smile of a passerby. I experience God when I help a co-worker or when I receive a compliment. As I let go of reliving yesterday or planning for tomorrow, my heart rejoices in the wonders of this day, this very special day that the Lord has made.
This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.—Psalm 118:24

Let Go Let God Provide Prosperity

As I appreciate my good, it expands.

Magnets attract metal. When one holds a magnet over a collection of items, only those with metallic properties will move toward it. The same is true of my thoughts. Whatever I am thinking about attracts thoughts and ideas with similar properties. The universe abundantly meets my every need. When my mind and heart are filled with gratitude, I realize my good. I thank God for loving relationships, for the ongoing renewal of my mind and body, and for the seemingly miraculous ways in which my needs are continually met.
The joy and gratitude I share bless everyone around me. As I appreciate my good, it expands.
God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance.—2 Corinthians 9:8

Let Go Let God be Spirited

I am a spirited being, bubbling over with joy and enthusiasm for life!

How would I experience the next moment if I were to take a deep breath and declare with lively heartfelt vigor, “I am a spirited being, bubbling over with joy and enthusiasm for life!”? I would feel such a positive surge that, regardless of how disheartened I may have felt up to that point, my body and spirit would be instantly charged. Speaking such a powerful affirmation from a soul level brightens my outlook and attitude. My mood lifts and I feel enlivened, uplifted and filled with zeal. I am a spirited and spiritual being, filled with the animating life force of God. I am ready for action, and I bubble over with joy and enthusiasm for life!
My words declare the uprightness of my heart, and what my lips know they speak sincerely.—Job 33:3

Let Go Let God Pray for Others

I behold the Christ in you.

I visualize the people for whom I pray as whole, healthy, prosperous and fulfilled. I behold them as the children of God they truly are, blessed with inherent wisdom, strength, life and energy. Instead of focusing on appearances, I concentrate on affirming the truth of their being. No matter what the need, I lift up my thoughts to a vision of spiritual perfection and absolute good. For healing, I affirm wholeness. For prosperity, I affirm abundance. For guidance, I behold the brightness and clarity of God’s light. I place my faith in the Christ Power active in every person. From a foundation of faith, I pray, give thanks for answered prayer, and trust the outcome to God.
Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you … just as it is well with your soul.—3 John 1:2

Let Go Let God Provide Comfort

I am comforted by divine love.

If I am experiencing a loss, feeling and expressing my emotions is healthy, as is seeking comfort from others. I am reassured knowing God’s love is always within and around me. As I quiet myself in body and mind, I become aware of divine love. I slow my breathing and let my body rest. I am calmed, soothed and strengthened. I feel God’s love within me and receive it from others who reach out to support me. I am lifted up by the flow of divine love from the many channels through which it is expressed. Assured that I am always united in mind and heart with the people, animals and places I love, I give thanks for each day’s blessings, for treasured memories and for love that never ends.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.—Matthew 5:4

Let Go Let God with Grace

The grace of God prepares me for a life that is altogether good.

Grace is not something we earn. It is a free and impartial gift of God that is given to us all. Every soul is blessed by the hope of infinite grace. The grace of God is more than mercy. It is complete forgiveness and full, unbounded love. It offers redemption from destructive thinking and living. Through grace the Divine is revealed and each one of us is reminded of our innate worthiness. Abiding in divine grace, we are secure and steady; our spiritual growth and progress are assured. The grace of God opens us to the swift, glorious and empowering way of Truth. It prepares us for a life that is altogether good.
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God.—Ephesians 2:8

Let Go Let God Pray for Leadership

Grateful for those who lead, I affirm their wisdom and compassion.

From George Washington to our newly elected president, many have accepted the joys and challenges of leading our nation. Each person who considers holding a leadership position must weigh the personal cost and sacrifice. I am grateful to those who have led and who continue to lead our country. I see the Truth of their being as wise and loving. I see them choosing the highest and best for all as they work for peace and abundance throughout our world. I hold the vision of leaders working in harmony, guided by divine wisdom to create a world that works for everyone. My prayers lift up each leader. I trust Spirit to establish perfect order as we awaken to our creative power to shape the world.
See, I made him a witness to the peoples, a leader and commander for the peoples.—Isaiah 55:4

Let Go Let God in Divine Order

With every thought, word, action and prayer, I transform my world!

In God Mind, the world is in perfect order. When one part of my life seems to be in disarray, I transform the condition by seeing it rightly. Beneath every seeming disorder is spiritual order, ready to be manifested through focused prayer and appropriate action.
In prayer, I align my mind with God Mind. God is the one Power and one Presence—the divine energy within all people and all situations. I breathe into this awareness and realize that even my “enemies” are divine beings capable of transformation. Through spiritual awareness, I discern the divine order that underlies the universe. Aligned with God, I transform my world with every thought, word, action and prayer.
All things should be done decently and in order.—1 Corinthians 14:40

Let Go Let God with Inner Peace

Peace permeates my being. I am calm and serene.

I breathe in deeply and slowly exhale. As I repeat this process, I feel all tension and uncertainty melt away. I relax my neck, shoulders, arms and my entire body—all the way down to my toes. I enter an oasis of peace, gently releasing my thoughts as I experience my oneness with God. I draw strength from my time alone with God. Outwardly, I may be surrounded by the demands of family, work and routine, but as my mind lets go of engagement, peace fills my soul. I feel the love of God and relax in the truth that all is well. With a clear mind and a peaceful heart, I am calm and serene. Wherever I am, peace exists at the core of my being. I emerge from my quiet time whole, refreshed and ready to continue my day.
O Lord, you have searched me and known me … Where can I go from your spirit?—Psalm 139:1, 7

Let Go Let God Provide Guidance

I act on divine guidance.

I may not receive immediate answers to the concerns and questions of my heart when I pray; however, I don’t give up. Each time I pray and meditate, I attune myself to the still small voice within. Prayer soothes my soul and opens my awareness to divine guidance. At any time, my inner guidance can help me transcend a disturbing situation or release a troubled thought. A divine idea may come to mind while I’m relaxing in a familiar environment or away from my daily routine. Wherever and however I become aware of my guidance, I know it was within me all along. It became clear at the right time for me to act on it.
When the Lord saw that he had turned aside to see, God called to him out of the bush, “Moses, Moses!” And he said, “Here I am.”—Exodus 3:4

Let Go Let God Give Love

I start a love cascade today.

Today is Valentine’s Day, but every day can be a day of love, and every day I can choose to be loving. The more love I give, the more love I get. So today, I begin a love cascade.
I close my eyes, connect with Spirit and focus on all I am grateful for—from the tiniest blessing to the biggest. I feel gratitude and love grow in my heart. As I allow the spirit of God to express through me in loving ways, I feel love grow. I smile at a stranger, open the door for someone I meet, run an errand for a neighbor and say a kind and caring word to a friend. As I continuously give love, love is returned to me beyond measure.
Let love be genuine; … hold fast to what is good; love one another with mutual affection; outdo one another in showing honor.—Romans 12:9-10

Let Go Let God with Self-Discipline

I embrace and exercise self-discipline.

Each person has spiritual attributes such as wisdom, understanding, strength, power and discernment. These powers help us reach our divine potential. I grow into fuller expression of my Christ Self as I commit to my spiritual practice. Self-discipline is my companion on the road to self-discovery, enlightenment and a more fulfilling life. I call upon the power of the indwelling Christ to strengthen my resolve. I keep my divine appointment to commune with God in prayer every day. I gently release that which does not support my spiritual growth and well-being. Today, as I embark on a journey of spiritual renewal, I confidently exercise self-discipline.

God did not give us a spirit of cowardice, but rather a spirit of power and … self-discipline.—2 Timothy 1:7

Let Go Let God be a Friend

My friends are true blessings in my life.

In her famous song, singer/songwriter Carole King reminds us what it means to be a friend: “All you have to do is call and I’ll be there. You’ve got a friend.” My friends and I have been brought together to bless one another. We encourage, uplift and listen to each other. They see qualities in me I don’t easily see in myself. They look past my faults and boost my confidence, and I do the same for them. I let my friends know how important they are to me, because I know to have a good friend, I must be one. A friend doesn’t care what you have; a friend cares who you are. In times of need, friends are happy to be there for each other. Friendship is an expression of the love of God.
No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.—John 15:13

Let Go Let God Have Dreams

I open my heart and mind to new perspectives.

Dreams come from the innermost part of my being. They bring messages of inspiration and encouragement, and influence my future. I nurture my dreams by embracing infinite possibilities. The wisdom of God guides me as I explore the world within and around me. My hopes and expectations rise as I open my heart and mind to new perspectives.
Whether my dreams come as subtle messages during sleep or as conscious creations as I visualize my potential, each one reflects my oneness with God. As each dream blossoms into reality, I give thanks and look ahead to new adventures, new dreams and new possibilities.
I will pour out my spirit on all flesh … your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions.—Joel 2:28

Let Go Let God be Free

I am free to be me.

Today I step into the uniqueness of who I am, and I find freedom. I let go of comparing myself to others and stop trying to be something I am not. I relinquish any thought of waiting for my life to begin. Every creature and creation on Earth is beautiful exactly as it is—and so am I. I am set free when I realize that as God’s creation, I am perfect and whole in this very moment. I do not need to strive for more, or change what I look like, or wait until my life meets a certain worldly standard. Everything I need is already here. I am already enough. I am loved, free and unlimited. Freedom expands my appreciation of who I am and the boundless blessings in my life.
The flowers appear on the earth; the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land.—Song of Solomon 2:12

Let Go Let God be of Service

The love of God inspires me. My faith in God motivates me.

I needn’t wait till I have more knowledge or experience to serve others in meaningful, helpful ways. I need only be inspired by God’s love and motivated by faith. Love inspires me to do the right thing with divine timing. Faith motivates me to step beyond my comfort zone and to act from the conviction that with God all things are possible.
The simplest act of kindness from one person to another can trigger a succession of good deeds. Whether acting as a companion, a compassionate stranger or a volunteer, I am expressing the love of God that created and sustains me. Service is an act of giving and receiving love. Whenever I serve my country, family or community, I am serving God and expressing God’s love to others.

The Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many.—Mark 10:45

Let Go Let God be Protected

The light of God shines brightly on my path. I am safe and secure.

God is my help in every need. I hold this truth in mind and heart. If I ever feel lost or afraid, I remember that God is a protecting presence and a guiding light on my path.
Just as the beam from a lighthouse guides ships past possible danger, the light of God guides me safely on. While the light of God may not be visible to the naked eye, it is visible to the spiritual eye. I attune to divine light in prayer. Prayer reveals the choices to make and assures me that I am not alone. I am divinely guided and protected each step of the way. I proceed with the assurance that God’s light goes before me, ensuring my safe progress.
Let your steadfast love and your faithfulness keep me safe forever.—Psalm 40:11

Let Go Let God with Joy

I am blessed with new life each day.

The birth of a child is a joyous event—a time when people celebrate the blessing of a new life. I can celebrate the joy of new life each day as I remember that I am a child of God, continually being reborn and renewed in mind, body and spirit. As a child of God, I experience the joy of health, for I am filled with divine healing energy that infuses every cell of my body with vitality and strength. As a child of God, I experience the joy of a spiritually directed life, for I am divinely inspired to make wise choices and to follow a path to my highest good. As a child of God, I experience the joy of true prosperity, for I am blessed with all I need for a healthy, happy, abundant life. I celebrate the joy of new life today and every day.
You show me the path of life. In your presence there is fullness of joy.—Psalm 16:11

Let Go Let God for World Peace

I set an example of peace in our world.

With 7 billion people on Earth, I wonder what I as one person can do to make the world more peaceful. The challenge may seem daunting, but I know prayer is powerful. So I pray each day to find more ways to unite, partner and work with others. Despite differing cultures and beliefs, we are one. I pray for all people to see our unity and seek positive solutions for all. I also foster world peace by demonstrating peace in my personal life. I am calm in stressful situations. Taking charge of my thoughts, I relinquish any worry, fear or unforgiveness, remembering that with God all things are possible. I contribute to a better world as I choose to be a living example of peace.
Peace, peace, to the far and the near, says the Lord; and I will heal them.—Isaiah 57:19

Tuesday, February 5, 2013

Let Go, Let God

I hold positive expectations, and I trust God.

Some say worry is the most common—although unintentional—form of prayer. It is a habit of focusing on negative possibilities, and it drains one’s energy and blocks effective action. Rather than worry, I choose to focus on positive possibilities and trust God for right outcomes. Becoming still in prayer, I see beyond any seeming setback to the activity of God within the situation. I know that all those involved are enfolded in God’s love and guided in every way. In the Silence, I release any need for a specific outcome and open to a spiritual solution. As I transform my thoughts, I am relieved of any worry. I trust God in all things, and I am free mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
You know him, because he abides with you, and he will be in you.—John 14:17

Let Go Let God Provide Strength

I am filled with the life, strength and energy of God.

Our bodies respond to our thoughts and feelings. If I am feeling depressed or unhappy, my body feels it. If I am feeling stressed and hurried, my body becomes tense and tired. Conversely, my body responds just as readily to positive thoughts. When I affirm with conviction, I am filled with the life, strength and energy of God, I stir up these divine qualities within me. The life and intelligence in my body respond, and I feel an upsurge of energy throughout my being. The healing life of God flows through me and I call it forth through my thoughts and affirmative prayers. As I do, my body as well as my mind and emotions are strengthened and uplifted.
He gives power to the faint, and strengthens the powerless.—Isaiah 40:29

Sunday, February 3, 2013

Let Go Let God Forgive

I forgive, and I am forgiven.

One of Jesus’ fundamental teachings was forgiveness. He told his disciples: “Whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him.” When Peter asked how often it was necessary to forgive, Jesus told him not only seven times, but seventy times seven. In other words, forgive continuously. Forgiveness opens channels of communication. It frees the heart, eases burdens and fosters growth. Forgiveness opens the way to deeper, more meaningful relationships. In my daily prayer time, I forgive anyone I believe has wronged me. I forgive myself and acknowledge the power of God within me and the spirit of love in which I am created. I forgive, and I am forgiven.
I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven.–Matthew 18:22

Let Go Let God Through Change

I open to the blessings of change.

Though change is inevitable in life, I may not always welcome it. The good news is I can change my thoughts about change! If I am feeling unsettled about a new situation, I can soften my resistance by looking for hidden gems in the unfolding experience. Like a child digging in the sand for buried treasure, I search beyond appearances until I find gold. I see change as an opportunity for greater understanding and spiritual growth. With practice, I welcome change as the catalyst for discovering the kingdom of God within me. I look for gold, look for good, and look for God in every person and every unfolding situation. I am open to the blessings of change.
Unless you change and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.—Matthew 18:3

Friday, February 1, 2013

Let Go Let God in Faith

I do not pray for faith; I pray from faith!

Faith perceives the substance of Spirit. I activate the power of my faith by choosing to see challenges as spiritual potential. From this vantage point, I zero in on dynamic thoughts that reveal divine possibilities not yet visible to me. When I enter into prayer, I do not pray for faith. My praying indicates I already have faith! I claim that faith as I affirm: Challenges have no power over me! The power and strength of God within shifts, shapes and illuminates all aspects of this situation, to make my way clear. I am not shaken or swayed by impatience, doubt or the skepticism of others. I plant my feet on a foundation of Truth—and stand firm in faith!
If you do not stand firm in faith, you shall not stand at all.—Isaiah 7:9
