Let Go Let God Be Free

The key to freedom is to put God first.

Daily life may appear confining at times. I might feel boxed in by deadlines, burdened by health concerns, or weary of relationship issues. Realizing I have a choice, I seek a path to freedom. In The Golden Key, Emmet Fox noted that the key to restoring peace and harmony is to “stop thinking about the difficulty, whatever it is, and think about God instead.” With this in mind, I turn my thoughts away from my concerns and affirm the truth that God is all there is. If worrisome thoughts resurface, I replace them with powerful affirmations of God’s loving presence. I regain my freedom by centering my thoughts on God. As I do, my mind quiets, my body relaxes, and I am free.
Out of my distress I called on the Lord; the Lord answered me and set me in a broad place.—Psalm 118:5

Let Go Let God as a Student of Life

I am always learning.

As a student of life, I am always learning. Living is like an endless education, and I learn something new every day. Sometimes circumstances test my mettle. With faith in myself and with the spirit of God in me, I surmount any obstacle and grow from the experience.
I learn by doing. I try what I have not tried before, and I take risks, knowing I may not always succeed. But I will always learn. As I follow my inner guidance, I make progress, building my faith and confidence.
 Every day, I continue to grow in awareness, seeking to learn more about God, myself, and life. I am guided by Spirit and blessed with the answers I seek.
Give instruction to the wise, and they will become wiser still; teach the righteous and they will gain in learning.—Proverbs 9:9

Let Go Let God Be Centered

Centered in God, I live a full life.

The center of a flower is the core from which the flower stands, the source of its pollen, and the seat of its nectar and fragrance. At the core of my being is the source that sustains me. Through meditation, I come home to it. Centered in this silent and peaceful place, I connect with my Creator. I let go of worry and concern, and I open myself to divine understanding. I trust the process of Life. When I act from my core essence, Truth is revealed. My life unfolds for my good and the good of others. Centered in God, I live a full and fulfilling life, sharing my gifts with the world.
Let us go out early to the vineyards, and see whether the vines have budded, whether the grape blossoms have opened … There I will give you my love.—Song of Solomon 7:12

Let Go Let God for Healing

I am healed and renewed.

Today I express my gratitude to God for healing: Thank You for the divine blueprint of wholeness and perfection within me and for my natural state of health, vitality, and strength. Thank You for Your presence in me, renewing, restoring, and sustaining me. Every organ, cell, and function of my body is being restored to wholeness through the healing power of Divine Life in me. I behold my true nature as Your child and I see myself as a picture of health—moving, speaking, working, playing, and functioning with ease, confidence, and purpose. I love and care for my body, for it houses the sacred being I am. I am healed and renewed, and I am grateful.
The Lord, your God, is in your midst … he will renew you in his love.—Zephaniah 3:17

Let Go Let God Forgive

Acting from my divine nature, I forgive mistakes.

Words uttered thoughtlessly in frustration or anger can be hurtful. If I am on the receiving end of someone’s unkind words, I have the choice to forgive or harbor bitterness. I choose to forgive. We have all been careless or thoughtless at times. I forgive others as I forgive myself, for words said and unsaid, and I release any resentment. Moving forward, I consciously choose thoughts and words that affirm and uplift. The thoughts I hold and the words I speak to others are carefully chosen expressions of God’s ever-present love. I commit to living my life as the caring, loving expression of God that I am.
See to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God; that no root of bitterness springs up and causes trouble.—Hebrews 12:15

Let Go Let God Provide Guidance

Attuned to divine wisdom, I know what is mine to do.

I seek to live my best life and express my highest potential; yet I may not always know how to go about it. In every moment, I have a choice between a variety of actions and attitudes. When I am unsure about what is mine to do, I turn within for divine guidance.
As I withdraw from the noise of my confusion and enter into a state of stillness and peacefulness, I become open and receptive to inner wisdom. In the Silence, my thoughts are illumined and I experience clarity and insight. The spirit of God within gives me the insight and direction I need to follow a positive course of action. I am confident of my next steps to be of true service and to live my most God-inspired life.
O send out your light and your truth; let them lead me; let them bring me to your holy hill.—Psalm 43:3

Let Go Let God in Divine Order

Divine order is at work in my life.

We behold divine order when we see a seed sprouting through the soil. Something marvelous has happened on a microlevel. The seed responded to the good soil and grew. The pattern within the seed, the seedling, and the maturing plant was divinely ordered.
I am like the seed that sprouts and grows to become all I can be. Divine order has been unfolding in my life from the day I was born. I see it manifesting when I experience a breakthrough in spiritual understanding, reach a goal, or find myself at the right place at the right time. My bounty is great. My heart is full. All is in divine order.

The kingdom of God is as if someone would scatter seed on the ground, and would sleep and rise night and day, and the seed would sprout and grow, he does not know how.—Mark 4:26-27

Let Go Let God with Inner Joy

I let my light shine!

Today I choose to live joyfully. My delight in life is inwardly generated, a natural by-product of the living, loving presence of God in me. As I move through my day, I find ways to express my heart’s contentment. My attitude is positive, upbeat, and enthusiastic. I look for ways to be helpful and encouraging. I am happy, and it shows! When I have an affirmative attitude, I am keen to notice and appreciate joy in other people. When I let my light shine, I notice the light of others shining back at me. Together we create a joyful space. As we share optimism, love, and happiness, the circumference of joy expands, and the world is blessed.
You show me the path of life. In your presence there is fullness of joy.—Psalm 16:11

Let Go Let God at this Turning Point

Today is my turning point, and now is my moment.

Every moment brings an opportunity to experience life anew. Every day carries the potential for transformation and growth—for adopting a fresh perspective, making a different choice, or taking a new path. I choose to make today a turning point day. Whether the changes I make are large or small, each one propels my growth. I discover more about myself, how Spirit works in and through me, and how to express my divine nature in meaningful ways. As I connect with Spirit within, I know I am supported in every way. I step out in faith to experience life more fully. I am confident and excited as I venture into new territory and embrace this turning point in my life.
For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.—Ecclesiastes 3:1

Let Go Let God Surrender

Surrendering to Spirit, I experience deep peace and well-being.

At times life flows smoothly, and at other times, it may seem like a battle. If I find myself in opposition with those around me or in conflict with myself, I cease the struggle now. I turn the matter—and, indeed, my life—over to the living Spirit of Truth within me.
I begin in quiet contemplation, laying down the defensive armor of strongly held convictions and any weapons of judgment or criticism. This is a conscious act of faith and courage. I relinquish control and surrender to Spirit. In the Silence, my open heart and mind reap the rewards of God’s living, loving Spirit. As I entrust myself to Infinite Love, I experience deep peace and well-being.
For not in my bow do I trust … But you have saved us from our foes.—Psalm 44:6, 7

Let Go Let God for World Peace

In mind and heart, I hold a vision of peace for all the world.

Centuries ago, people gazed at the moon, never imagining humans would someday walk upon it. Yet someone did imagine it, and science and technology were developed to make it happen. Now missions to the moon—and beyond—are commonplace. I use my imagination to envision peace in our world, where every person is celebrated as a unique expression of the Divine. Every individual is safe and loved. Leaders of every nation value peace, and armies lay down their weapons. I act from my vision of peace, confident the practices for achieving it will arise from the universal creative process. I do not need to know how the process will unfold; I simply know that peace is possible for all.
Peace, peace, to the far and the near.—Isaiah 57:19

Let Go Let God Provide Prosperity

God is my unfailing source.

God’s world is not a world of lack or limitation. It is a world of plenty. God’s supply is ever-present, an unfailing source of good. Knowing I am one with God, I adopt a consciousness of prosperity. I think and act in prosperous ways. I view the circumstances of my life not with an expectation of lack or failure, but from the perspective of prosperity and success. I stand steady and sure in the face of uncertainty, confident that divine ideas will assure my prosperity. I give thanks for the manifestation of every desired blessing, knowing God is my source and every need is fulfilled.
On his law they meditate day and night. They are like trees planted by streams of water, which yield their fruit in its season … In all that they do, they prosper.—Psalm 1:2, 3

Let Go Let God Seek

Guided by divine wisdom, I find what I seek.

In the game of hide-and-seek, children are delighted to find their hiding playmates. It may take many minutes and several searches before all the players are found, but once the last one is discovered, all regroup and start again. Life is sometimes like a game of hide-and-seek. It may seem that the goals I pursue are hidden from me, just out of reach. Yet in the game of life, I can carefully consider my objectives. Am I only looking to solve perceived problems or aiming for spiritual understanding so I may rise above? Am I seeking to change temporary circumstances or the wisdom to effect lasting change in me? With wisdom and perseverance, I find what I seek and rejoice in every discovery.
The human spirit is the lamp of the Lord, searching every innermost part.—Proverbs 20:27

Let Go Let God for Protection

I am protected by a consciousness of Truth.

Sometimes the world may seem unsafe or dangerous. When conditions are beyond my control, uncertainty can develop into fear. If I am fearful, I have an opportunity to return to Truth. I affirm these Truth statements: The Universe supports me in every way. God is absolute good and everywhere present. The spirit of God within me is my protection. As I let Truth fill my mind and heart, I am protected. The spirit of God within is my safeguard in danger, my guide through doubt, and my courage in times of fear. Trusting in the Truth, I am protected. My essential nature is strong and secure. God in me is my protection.
Trust in the Lord, and do good; so you will live in the land, and enjoy security.—Psalm 37:3

Let Go, Let God

I let go of struggle, and let God be my inspiration.

When I say “I let go and let God,” what am I releasing, and what am I allowing? I let go of condemnation and allow the unconditional love of God. I release darkness and sorrow and embrace the light and joy of God. I let go of struggle, lack, and limitation and let in the peace, substance, and power of God. In my time of prayer and meditation, I become as a child listening to a loving parent. I cease telling God what I know and seek only to know God’s presence. I let go of limited understanding and let God within me bring spiritual understanding. As I let go of earthly troubles, my burdens lift and I rejoice in the kingdom of God within me.
Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs.—Luke 18:16

Let Go Let God with Grace

The grace of God magnifies every good effort.

Grace is the great blessing from the Creator that enhances every good effort I make. Jesus depicted the activity of grace when he said we can begin with faith as small as a mustard seed and still have the power to move mountains. Whenever I seek answers in prayer, grace reveals what I need to know. I can open my heart with the smallest willingness to forgive, and grace will carry me the rest of the way. As I give thanks for the blessings in my life, grace expands my awareness, and I find more good flowing in and through my life. When I begin an activity with my heart centered in God, grace assures the results will exceed my expectations. The grace of God magnifies every good work that I do.
On his arrival he greatly helped those who through grace had become believers.—Acts 18:27

Let Go Let God Dance

I dance to the rhythm of my heart.

Learning a new dance can be fun and challenging. First, I learn the steps, and then I practice. Through repetition, I fully integrate the technique. While missteps may happen along the way, the time comes when I have to let go, stop thinking about the routine, and allow my body to move with the rhythm of the music. Similarly, life is a process of learning how to cope with the twists and turns. If I fall down, I get back up and try again. There are no wrong moves, just growth experiences that show me how to move with the pace of the Universe. Today I am willing to flow with the music of my soul, dance to the rhythm of my heart, and sing with the harmony of love.
Praise him with tambourine and dance; praise him with strings and pipe!—Psalm 150:4

Let Go Let God on this Sacred Journey

Life itself is holy ground.

Some sites are considered sacred, and people go there to worship and experience an uncommon energy. Many of us dream of making a pilgrimage to a sacred place. Such journeys have a meaningful impact on our lives and help us grow in spiritual understanding. Yet every spiritual journey begins right where we stand, this very moment. Whether we travel to the far reaches of the earth or sit on a meditation pillow in our living room, the real expedition is a journey inward. Wherever I go, I abide in the presence of God’s love. I expand my awareness to recognize God in each moment, in each breath, in each person and place, for life itself is holy ground.
Take off the sandals from your feet, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.—Acts 7:33

Let Go Let God on this World Day of Prayer

My positive thoughts, words, and actions create a healthy life—mind, body, and spirit.

The power of Divine Life dwells in me. It is my essential makeup, my true nature. Through the power of affirmative prayer, new ways of life are revealed to me. As I develop the practice of thinking, speaking, and acting in life-affirming ways, I work with the power of Divine Life rather than against it. I allow health and wholeness—expressions of Divine Life—to manifest in my mind, body, and spirit. I look for the good, for God, in every experience, expanding my awareness into a consciousness of wholeness. My speech is constructive as I cooperate with the creative process. I act in healthful ways that reflect my embodiment of the Divine. These thoughts, words, and actions create a healthy life.
Be renewed in the spirit of your minds.—Ephesians 4:23

Let Go Let God with Inner Peace

I am open to the peace of God within.

The world does not determine whether or not I am at peace. I am willing to let peace begin with me. Inner peace is a state of mind and heart, one I can choose anytime. I take time right now to center myself in peace. In a moment of silence, I release any concerns and feel my oneness with God. I relax, breathe deeply, and rest quietly. I pray “Peace, be still!” until I feel peace in every fiber of my being. Beginning my day with a peaceful heart, I become a channel of peace, opening the way for peaceful encounters in the hours ahead. I set the intention to bring awareness to my thoughts, words, and actions throughout the day and to stay centered in peace.
For God is a God not of disorder but of peace. —1 Corinthians 14:33

Let Go Let God Cocreate

I cocreate with God.

Lack is an illusion—a pretense that I could somehow be separate from the creative, infinite supply of God in me. If I am facing a challenge or the appearance of lack, I may feel unprepared or unable to handle the situation on my own. In prayerful contemplation, I remember the abiding Presence within me. I am not alone. As I open my heart, I feel the flow of divine creativity spring up within me. In partnership with the creative power of God, I allow ideas to come forth. Divine ideas reveal the attitudes and actions that will lead me to my highest good. With God, I cocreate peace in place of discord, healing where there is brokenness, and substance instead of lack.
I will live in them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.—2 Corinthians 6:16

Let Go Let God Be Prepared

I am ready for this new day!

I awaken refreshed, renewed, and energized. To begin my morning, I start with prayer, connecting with Source. The ideas I hold in mind and heart help prepare me for the day ahead. I affirm that I am one with God and aligned with divine life, order, peace, and plenty. I am ready for this new day, whatever it may bring. If I have specific goals in mind, I decide on the first steps to reach them. If I have an upcoming test, I study. If I’ve been assigned a task at work, I prepare by gathering the resources I need. When new opportunities arise, I seize them with confidence. Preparation is necessary in many facets of life. My heart and mind are open and prepared for every blessing this day holds.
Build up, build up, prepare the way, remove every obstruction from my people’s way.—Isaiah 57:14

Let Go Let God Connect with Elders

In connecting with God and humanity, I experience the wisdom of the ages.

Wisdom is often held by our elders—those who have lived long, faced tragedy and triumph, and learned the lessons of life. We are blessed as they hand down wisdom from generation to generation. Our elders have lived through immense change in our modes of travel, communication, business, and culture. I honor how they have contributed positively to our society’s progress with their talents, ingenuity, and courage. As my elders share their wisdom with me, I grow toward becoming a wise elder myself. I welcome the opportunity to learn and to share my lessons with others.
We speak God’s wisdom, secret and hidden, which God decreed before the ages for our glory. –1 Corinthians 2:7

Let Go Let God Provide Comfort

I am secure and comforted by the Spirit.

A harsh rebuke or an unexpected challenge may prompt me to feel upset or confused. Although I may attempt to understand the situation by ruminating on it, some experiences are best understood not in the head, but in the heart. I step aside and take a moment to myself, breathing deeply and reconnecting with Spirit. I remember I am a beloved expression of God, guided by divine wisdom. As I focus on the presence of Spirit within me, I am comforted. No words or circumstances can separate me from God. I realize that circumstances come and go, but God is always here—with me, in me, and as me. As I let go of hurt or confusion, I am secure and comforted in the spirit of God.
As a mother comforts her child, so I will comfort you.—Isaiah 66:13

Friday, September 6, 2013

Let Go Let God in Harmony

I am one with the presence of God.

The word harmony is often used to describe the balance of notes and sounds in music, but harmony also describes a life in balance. I achieve balance more easily when I attune to the presence of God expressing in and through me. The Divine Presence is stronger and more stable than any discord or conflict. It is a constant, steady force that brings concordance to my thoughts, words, and actions. Through an awareness of God, I experience greater peace and balance. I know that with God, every circumstance encountered and every dream imagined can contribute to harmony and order in my life and the lives of others.
It is good to give thanks to the Lord … to declare your steadfast love in the morning, and your faithfulness by night, to the music of the lute and the harp, to the melody of the lyre.—Psalm 92:1-3

Let God Let God Brighten

I look on the lighter, brighter side of life.

Maintaining a sense of humor helps me navigate life’s challenges. If I am troubled or worried, I treat myself gently and lighten up. I trust the power of Love within to guide me through any situation. God’s love helps me rise above circumstances. It empowers me to proceed with optimism and courage and relieves any burden I am carrying. I open my heart to Love and feel the lightness of God uplift me. Divine love is a gentle reminder that I am never alone. It is the eternal presence of hope within me. In God’s love, I remember not to take things too seriously—to look on the lighter, brighter side of life.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord my whole life long.—Psalm 23:6

Let Go Let God Pray for Others

When I pray for others, love flows.

Flowing water finds its way around obstacles. The tallest mountain cannot block it. The deepest valley cannot contain it. Water persistently moves through the smallest cracks and openings. It evaporates and returns as rain or freezes and expands on land. In time, even jagged rocks are worn smooth by the flow of water. Similarly, persistent prayer shifts our state and our life experience. I enter the flow of prayer to navigate situations until either they change or I see them differently. I open my heart in prayer to create a sacred space for those I don’t agree with or understand. I pray for others, knowing that in the flow of life, love always finds a way. Through the act of prayer, we are all blessed.
Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.—Matthew 5:44

Let Go Let God for the Highest Good

My highest good is always unfolding.

Circumstances change. Plans get interrupted. Life takes unexpected turns. Even so, I remain calm and unshaken as I stand on the solid ground of faith, knowing that my highest good is unfolding. Beneath every outer change is the unchanging Truth of God—stable, unvarying, consistent. In God, nothing is ever lost. In God, there is enough power and strength to meet any life experience. In God, I know I am not alone. I maintain the courage and will to embrace all that life offers. As conditions change, I am flexible, moving through times of transformation with ease and grace. I expect the manifestation of my highest good, and I embrace whatever form it may take.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change.—Psalm 46:2

Monday, September 2, 2013

Let Go Let God in Relaxation

I relax in the moment and just be.

Taking time to rest and relax is important for my health and well-being, for it renews my mind, body, and spirit. To relax, I may take a day off from work, stroll the neighborhood, read a book, or enjoy time with friends. Whatever I choose, I make well-being a priority.
I let my mind rest and focus on being present in the moment. I breathe in the fresh air, feeling it energize me. I notice the blessings around and within me, and I adopt an attitude of gratitude. Relaxing allows me to release physical tension and mental stress. I am conscious of a new vitality and aware of my ability to be more present to what is important in life.
Six days you shall work, but on the seventh day you shall rest; even in plowing time and in harvest time you shall rest.—Exodus 34:21

Let Go Let God Be Unstoppable

I am divine energy, and I am unstoppable.

I have hidden stores of power and energy deep within me. When I face an obstacle, I reach inward to access the divine power of God that supplies my every need. Like the wind, which can blow with great power and force yet remain unseen, the energy in me may not be visible, yet it is strong, vibrant, and ever-present. Through the power of God within, I am capable of accomplishing great things. As I learn to rely on this power, I unleash my full potential. I am eternally connected with my power source. It is divine, it is the energy of the universe, and it is unstoppable. I am this divine energy, and I cannot fail.
Then Jesus called the twelve together and gave them power and authority over all demons and to cure diseases, and he sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal.—Luke 9:1-2
