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

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

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

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

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

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
