Let Go Let God with Joy

I live my life with the joy and wonder of a child.
Children live in a world of imagination, wonder, and joy. They find pleasure in simple things: playful squirrels, dandelion bouquets, and dancing with wild abandon to their inner soundtrack. Joy is the essence of who they are. Like a carefree child, I choose to live my life connected to the unbounded joy within me. Following my bliss, I sing, I draw, I write. I am uplifted, inspired, and healed through joyful play. If I am distracted by thoughts of the past or concerns for the future, I gently return my mind to the joy of the present moment. As I do, stress and fear dissolve. I live with the joy and wonder of a child. I see the beauty in everyone and everything around me.
He will fill your mouth with laughter, and your lips with shouts of joy.—Job 8:21

Let Go Let God in the Garden

Boundless possibilities blossom in the garden of my life.
My choices determine what thrives in my life’s garden. In preparation for a bountiful harvest, I till the hardened soil. I turn the dirt to bring to light what was below the surface. I choose what I wish to plant and sow seeds of peace, love, and strength. At times, I might feel tempted to dig and see whether the seeds are germinating, but gardening is an act of faith. With proper care, the desired results will blossom. I treat my seeds of consciousness as I would flower seeds. I assure the proper conditions for growth. I weed out unwanted beliefs and sprinkle expressions of gratitude daily. I plant the seeds of desire and gratefully celebrate the fruits of my labor.
As a garden causes what is sown in it to spring up, so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring up before all the nations.—Isaiah 61:11

Let Go Let God Forgive

As I forgive, I free myself to experience happiness, prosperity, and peace.
When I choose to forgive, I hold the key to my spiritual growth and abundant living. As I forgive, I open the door to a greater understanding of divine goodness, substance, and love. I release hurt, anger, disappointment, and resentment and receive freedom, happiness, prosperity, and peace. To forgive, I pray: Thank you, God, for revealing what needs to be forgiven. You guide me to the liberation of my soul. You lift my consciousness and heal my life. You help me know and practice true forgiveness. I give up feelings that weigh me down and block my good. As I free myself, I experience true healing and restoration.
If anyone has a complaint against another, forgive each other; just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.–Colossians 3:13

Let Go Let God in Celebration

I celebrate and share my divine inheritance.
Like the Prodigal Son who returned to his father and received a festive welcome home, I need to remember my own divine inheritance. As a beloved child of God, my greatest inheritance is the kingdom of heaven within. Wherever I am, God is with me. I always have access to divine ideas, guidance, wisdom, and love. When I turn my attention inward, I tap into the ever-present flow of divine good. I am blessed beyond measure. Today I celebrate my inheritance by recognizing Spirit as the source of my good. In gratitude, I commit to using my divine inheritance to make a positive difference in the world.
“Let us eat and celebrate; for this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found!” And they began to celebrate.—Luke 15:23-24

Let Go Let God Provide Guidance

God guides me to my highest good.
Sometimes I may face challenges that I don’t know how to meet. I may feel hopeless, worried, or lost. In a fog of anxiety, I may hesitate or freeze, afraid of moving in the wrong direction. My mind first turns to past experiences for answers. Then I realize I am ready for fresh ideas. I take a deep breath and remember to turn to God for guidance. Divine Mind knows my truth and is the source of wisdom, always there for me when I seek a solution. I still my mind and enter the Silence. Relaxed and connected to Spirit, I am open to limitless possibilities. New ideas arise and I receive clear direction. God guides me to my highest good—the right and perfect outcome.
I will instruct you and teach you the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you.—Psalm 32:8

Let Go Let God in World Peace

Contribute to peace in the world.

By building peace inside myself, I grow in power to bring positive changes to my life and the world. My personal contribution will add to the greater whole. Thus, I help build peace on earth step-by-step—one interaction at a time. Each choice to respond in love fosters peace. When I walk away from a needless confrontation, offer a kind word, or help a friend in need, I have helped generate greater peace. Peace comes in many ways. I contribute to serenity in my life and the world when I handle my finances consciously and when I do community service. I develop peace within when I care about the environment and all the creatures that share the planet with me. As I build peace in my soul, I contribute to peace in the world.
Blessed are the peacemakers.—Matthew 5:9

Let Go Let God through Nature

I learn, grow, and thrive in the school of Mother Nature.
Like me, plants and animals thrive in a variety of conditions—from lush to harsh. When I feel in the flow of abundance, I sing like the birds. When I am hungry for love or peace, I remember how animals adapt to find food and water as seasons or conditions change. I watch a squirrel bury acorns and I consider saving a little for later. I see a tree freely giving fruit, and I effortlessly offer my gifts. I touch a delicate flower and pledge to honor my own vulnerability. I feel solid earth beneath my feet or loose soil in my hands. Sometimes I live on the solid ground of familiarity; other times my life becomes rich soil for new ideas. I open myself to the teachings of Mother Nature, and I am blessed.
Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap ... and yet God feeds them.—Luke 12:24

Let Go Let God with Respect

I do my part to create a world of respect and compassion.
How I treat others sets an expectation of how I would like to be treated. When I am compassionate, it sets the energy of compassion in motion. When I am understanding, I invite others to understand and respect my views. I want to live in a world of respect and compassion. I value diversity and respect differences. The world around me is enriched by varied sights, sounds, tastes, and textures. It is also enriched by the free flow of varied opinions and beliefs. I bring curiosity to new ideas, people, and experiences. When I encounter opinions or beliefs different than mine, I respond with respect. Each time I choose respect, I create the loving world I envision.
Pursue peace with everyone, and the holiness without which no one will see the Lord.—Hebrews 12:14

Let Go Let God Bless the Earth

I honor the earth and all of life.
Today I recognize and appreciate how the earth blesses me. As I stop to smell the flowers, I breathe out a thank-you for their sweet scent. I place my hand on a tree and acknowledge its service of shelter and shade. During a rain shower, I envision the interconnection of the rivers, lakes, and oceans nourishing and supporting all living things. I bless all the creatures of the earth, from the bee who pollinates the crops that become my food, to the graceful giraffe who reminds me to elevate my perspective. I witness the joy of a squirrel burying an acorn and wonder about the tree the acorn may become. I am one with the earth’s inhabitants, and I honor them all.
The earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it, the world, and those who live in it.—Psalm 24:1

Let Go Let God Be Brave

I bravely accomplish what is mine to do.
When I face something new or daunting, it helps to think of toddlers learning to walk. They stand, take a few steps, then fall. Then they do it again. With persistence and courage, they soon are toddling around the house. I remember I was once the child taking those first steps. That bravery born in me is still with me, and I can call it forth at any time. By trusting in my inner strength, I do whatever I am called to do with confidence. Focused on the task at hand, my courage and persistence dispel any fear. As I summon my inner strength, I find all the bravery I need. I rise to any challenge, keep growing, and keep going.
I hereby command you: Be strong and courageous; do not be frightened or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.—Joshua 1:9

Let Go Let God in Comfort

I am comforted and at peace.
Sometimes I feel anxiety, fear, or doubt because of my life circumstances. A family member may be in the hospital. I may be struggling with finances or relationships. If I let my imagination go wild, my worry only increases. Instead, I remind myself that the comforting love of God is only a thought away. Whenever I begin to think of the problem, I shift my thoughts immediately and remember my faith in God. I say the “Prayer for Protection”: The light of God surrounds me; the love of God enfolds me; the power of God protects me; the presence of God watches over me. Wherever I am, God is! I am comforted and at peace.
As a mother comforts her child, so I will comfort you; you shall be comforted in Jerusalem.—Isaiah 66:13

Let Go Let God Enjoy Freedom

I am free right where I am.
While on my daily walk, I enjoy the freedom of the outdoors. I see freedom in a robin’s flight. I hear freedom in the rhythm of the rain. I feel freedom in the wind’s warm caress. It occurs to me that like the robin, rain, and wind, I am an expression of freedom. Regardless of my circumstances, I choose to affirm freedom. I experience freedom with my mind, body, and soul. My unlimited spirit can never be bound by outer conditions. One cannot bind peace, joy, or love. I express my spiritual gifts with every thought of forgiveness, every moment spent with a friend, and every word of kindness. As I share my gifts, I experience liberation. I am free right where I am.
For you were called to freedom, brothers and sisters.—Galatians 5:13

Let Go Let God with Strength

I am empowered by divine strength.
Whatever I face, I can move through it with grace. The stabilizing power of God’s strength is within me. I call forth this spiritual resource for whatever time, energy, and clarity I need. I move forward with unwavering faith, balance, and grace. When I trust in divine strength, I am poised and self-confident. I am blessed and I bless others. My inner strength soothes and calms those around me. Conflicts or drama yield to the power of Spirit. Centered in God, I make steady progress and overcome challenges with peace and joy. My heart is comforted and secure. I persist and endure, supported by the love of God.
For thus said the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel: In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and in trust shall be your strength.—Isaiah 30:15

Let Go, Let God

I speak the desires of my heart and then I let them go.
Love is a spiritual gift that brings forth attraction and harmony. I know to lovingly turn my thoughts to God in prayer. When I speak the desires of my heart, I activate a powerful force. The creative energy of the Universe rushes through me, as me, and as my desires. After my prayer, I need do nothing but let go. I let go of trying to fix the situation or solve a problem. I release any attachment to the way my desires should manifest. God, the one source and one power, is the answer to my prayer. Spirit is wholeness when I seek health; divine love is abundance when I seek prosperity; God is wisdom when I seek guidance. All these gifts of Spirit are freely given to me, as I ask from my heart.
God is love, and those who abide in love abide in God, and God abides in them.—1 John 4:16

Thursday, April 16, 2015

Let Go Let God with Inner Peace

I choose to live with a peaceful heart.

Peace does not depend on outer conditions. The peace of God waits solely on my decision to choose Love. Whatever happens in my life or the world, I focus on the truth of my innate wholeness and my oneness with God. In the midst of any apparent conflict, I center myself in Love’s abiding power and presence. I release any attachment to people or events being a certain way. I abandon any judgment or expectations. I surrender to the knowledge that all things work together for good. I choose a peaceful attitude that nourishes my heart, body, and soul. I feel replenished and vibrant because I choose peace today. I choose love.
With patience, bearing with one another in love, making every effort to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.—Ephesians 4:2-3

Let Go Let God in Prosperity

I am swimming in a sea of prosperity.
I am prosperous in countless ways! Whenever I doubt my well-being, I think about my blessings, and realize I am swimming in an ocean of good. I have my health and well-being; the ability to breathe, think, and move about. I see prosperity in the comfort of my home, my place of employment, and the beauty of nature. I am blessed with free will—I choose how to spend my time and where to place my attention. All my relationships are prosperous, and I receive abundant acceptance and love from friends, family, coworkers, and pets. I am thankful for my greatest fortune: the constant presence of God in my life. I am swimming in a sea of prosperity!
And my God will fully satisfy every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.—Philippians 4:19

Let Go Let God in Faith

I expect and receive only good.
When fears and doubts cloud my mind, I check in with my heart. I ask myself: Where am I placing my faith? Is it in outer appearances or my Truth? I may need to redirect my thoughts to my faith in a loving God and affirm divine order. I expect and receive only good. Faith begins in consciousness. In the Silence, I focus on the reality of Infinite Good everywhere present at all times. The darkness of doubt gives way to the light of Truth. I deny any words or actions that suggest lack. Rather, I praise and bless everything I encounter on my life’s journey. My actions reflect my conviction that my divine inheritance is always at hand.
No distrust made him waver concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong in his faith as he gave glory to God.—Romans 4:20

Let Go Let God be Refreshed

I claim a life of infinite potential.
When my attention is focused on limitation and impossibility, it is difficult to remember my infinite potential. The world of appearances can be discouraging. If I feel out of touch with the peace, love, and joy of God, I make a change. I gently turn my attention to my feelings, and use the power within me to release worry. I close my eyes and take a prayer break. Inviting tensions in my body to gradually melt away, I focus on God’s light and love. Abundant prosperity, unending love, and boundless joy are my divine birthright.
I open my eyes and see differently, as if through the eyes of a child. The life I now see before me is filled with infinite potential.
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 on this New Day

I joyously claim the gifts of a new day.
I awaken to the precious light of a new day and to the expectancy of amazing gifts awaiting me. I pray:
For the gift of this day, Lord, I give thanks. Whatever is mine to give, let me give generously, mindful of the abundant Spirit of service and love within me. Whatever is mine to receive, let me claim it gratefully, knowing I am worthy of all the good the Universe showers upon me. Whatever is mine to learn, let me receive gently the understanding of Spirit with an open mind and heart. Whatever is mine to forgive, let me allow the flow of healing Love to free me and to release any pain I hold. At the end of this day, may my heart be filled, my hands emptied and my mind at rest. Amen.
It is good to give thanks to the Lord ... to declare your steadfast love in the morning.—Psalm 92:1-2

Let Go Let God in Affirmation

I affirm and give thanks for the goodness of God in my life.
Affirmations focus my thoughts in a positive way. They train my mind to envision positive outcomes. As I use affirmations, I create an inner experience that manifests in the outer. I envision good coming to me and through me, and I am strengthened and empowered. I create affirmations based on what is important to me. If I feel less than healthy, I affirm: I am strong and whole through the power of God’s healing love. If I desire greater abundance, I declare: The prospering power of God is at work in my life. In the midst of a challenge, I repeat: I am peaceful and calm. As I create and use affirmations, I manifest perfect health, wisdom, and abundance.
My mouth shall speak wisdom; the meditation of my heart shall be understanding.—Psalm 49:3

Let Go Let God Release

As God’s perfect child, I release that which no longer serves me.
In the past I may have received messages that I was weak, powerless, unlovable, or not good enough. I may have carried those beliefs like a heavy backpack. My shoulders drooped and my head hung low. The people who sent those messages must have been unaware of God’s boundless grace. I enfold them in love now and rejoice in the gifts of God’s kingdom, always available to me. I am God’s perfect expression. I no longer carry beliefs that do not serve me. As I release these burdens, I feel their weight slip off my back. My whole being sighs with relief as I straighten my back and stand tall. I declare: I am strong. I am powerful beyond measure. I am loved.
But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits.—James 3:17

Let Go Let God Be Protected

Divine light within me illuminates the darkness and dispels all fear.
Just as a child might fear monsters in the darkness of night, there are times when I experience a similar intensity of fear. Some situations may seem like monsters in the closet. A momentary pause allows me to find the light again and relieve my fear. Just as I would comfort a scared child, I comfort myself by turning on the light to reveal that all is well. I call upon Jesus to be the presence of light as I find the way to my own inner Christ Light. The light in me infills, infuses, and surrounds my being. Through the power of my prayers, divine light dissipates darkness, and I realize that all is well.
Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. And God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness.–Genesis 1:3-4

Let Go Let God Pray for Others

I see the Truth in others as I pray for them.
To an ant, the world is an overwhelming jungle of obstacles. To an astronaut, the world is a beautiful, living jewel. The level of our view determines what we see. Before I pray, I center my awareness in the pure Presence of Being. With a cleansing breath, I move my attention away from the level of obstacles to the level of divine potential always present. As I speak the names of others in prayer, I see them as they truly are: expressions of divine wisdom, life, and love. I visualize God made visible in them and in their lives. My view is not at the level of challenge but at the level of possibility. My prayer is not to fix anything, but to know the Divine unfolds in perfect ways within each of them.
And after he had dismissed the crowds, he went up the mountain by himself to pray.—Matthew 14:23

Let Go Let God Provide Healing

I partner with God in caring for my body temple.
My body is a holy temple—a divine creation—and I partner with God in caring for it. I honor my body and respect its many functions. I energize it with healthy food and beverages. I strengthen it through exercise and movement. I bless it with affirming thoughts and restful sleep. Every cell, tissue, organ, and system of my body is filled with the healing life of God. I am in awe of this wondrous temple! Even if I am tired or stressed, I know healing is taking place. I may not see nor experience immediate results, but I know I am being renewed and rejuvenated at depth. I give thanks for my body temple and its magnificent strength. I rejoice in my partnership with God as I care for myself.
We shall be satisfied with the goodness of your house, your holy temple.—Psalm 65:4

Let Go Let God in Love

When I center on Spirit, I experience greater love.
What I focus on grows. Spirit is the ultimate source of all love, and the more I center on Spirit, the more love is expressed and evident in my life. I regularly practice focusing on God rather than the many distractions of the world. As I do, my awareness of love’s abiding presence expands. In the Silence, I cultivate my ability to perceive love as the very nature and essence of my being. I express love freely from within, rather than seek compulsively from without. In prayer and meditation, I recognize love as the unifying power behind all existence. I experience the fullness of divine love, which sustains and connects us as One.
The Lord, your God, is in your midst ... he will rejoice over you with gladness, he will renew you in his love.—Zephaniah 3:17

Let Go Let God Awaken to Easter

The spirit of the Christ is awakened in me.
Jesus Christ, the great Way Shower, taught peace, compassion, forgiveness, and love. His teachings changed lives 2,000 years ago, and they are just as relevant today. As I spend time in the Silence this Easter day, I consider how to fully express the qualities of Christ in me. I draw my attention to the wisdom within. Awakening to Spirit, I discover ways to better express peace, compassion, forgiveness, and love. I revel in the life springing up in and around me and experience the world from a new perspective. I see through the eyes of love, hear with the ears of compassion, and speak words of forgiveness. By following the teachings of Jesus, the Christ is alive in me this Easter day.
Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.”—John 20:21

Let Go Let God with Nonresistance

I let go of resistance and I am at peace.
When a life circumstance arises that I would rather avoid, I do not verbally or mentally resist it. Instead, like Jesus, I give it over. This is true surrender. Rather than giving in to resistant thoughts and feelings, I let them safely pass through my mind. I say, “Into Divine hands, I give this situation.” I take three deep breaths and on every exhalation, I let go of resistance. Even before circumstances shift in the outer realm, I am resolved in my inner realm. My objections melt away and any sense of burden lifts. As I accept what is, I find great peace. In letting go, I am free. My shoulders relax and my heart expands. I meet whatever is before me with spacious acceptance and peace.
Do not delay me, since the Lord has made my journey successful; let me go that I may go to my master.–Genesis 24:56

Friday, April 3, 2015

Let Go Let God Trust

I let go and trust in God’s perfect outcome.
In the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus released his own idea of what would be best for him, even his reliance on his friends. He prayed, “Not what I want, but what you want,” as he surrendered the outcome to God. His limited perspective gave way to a greater reality, and he transcended his personal limitations. Following the example of Jesus, our Way Shower, I release my limited thinking to embrace a divine outcome. I break through any narrow expectation of my good, and realize a new possibility for my soul’s growth and joy. As I surrender my lower personal view, I see the vision of my Higher Self. I trust in God’s perfect outcome.
He said, “Abba, Father, for you all things are possible; remove this cup from me; yet, not what I want, but what you want.”—Mark 14:36

Thursday, April 2, 2015

Let Go Let God in Communion

I am one with others in love and peace in a moment of sacred communion.
Communion is the deep spiritual connection of my heart to the Holy Spirit and to the hearts of those around me. Love and peace flow between us in a sacred experience. I feel my oneness with God and my life is deepened and enriched by the people with whom I share communion. Communion occurs in both simple activities and in joyful celebrations. Each time I experience communion with others, I feel a deep spiritual connection well up within me. Our souls are in communion. Love and peace are the sacred elements of that communion, and Spirit is blessing us. In sacred communion with others, I experience a holy moment. I am united with all beings in Peace and Love.
As the Father has loved me, so I have loved you; abide in my love.—John 15:9

Let Go Let God with Blessings

I am blessed by living the spiritual life.
The memories of my life are like photographs in an album. They document adventures, challenges, growth, and discovery. Some images vividly evoke the feelings, places, sounds, and circumstances of the past. I remember beautiful moments of joy, when spiritual gifts were easy to see. At other times, I navigated painful experiences by drawing from my deep well of faith. All of my experiences contribute to my spiritual understanding and growth. I have known God as my source of strength when I feel weak and my source of joy when my heart is brimming with happiness. I am blessed by living a spiritual life and knowing I always walk with God.
You bestow on him blessings forever; you make him glad with the joy of your presence.–Psalm 21:6
