Let Go Let God as a Peacemaker

I am a willing instrument of God’s perfect peace.
Saint Francis of Assisi wrote, “Make me an instrument of Your peace.” As I use my energy to generate peaceful thoughts and actions, I contribute to peace in the world. When I am friendly, helpful, and cooperative, I am in service of peace. My actions toward peace align me with the best and highest good in those around me. I may feel helpless about conflicts in other parts of the world. At such times, I focus my thoughts, prayers, and actions on peace. Jesus’ word for peace was shalom, which means a personal act of goodwill and assistance toward others. I live peacefully and my peaceful actions reverberate around the world.
May the God of steadfastness and encouragement grant you to live in harmony with one another, in accordance with Christ Jesus.—Romans 15:5

Let Go Let God Answer the Call

I answer the call to follow the spiritual path.

While I appreciate material things, I know things we buy do not satisfy our souls. I may become aware that my restlessness is a form of “spiritual poverty.” I vow to turn this around by embarking on a spiritual quest. I open my heart and soul and prepare for growth. More than anything else, I want to experience God more deeply. My spiritual quest is the most rewarding journey of my life. As I travel the path, I put what I learn into practice. I incorporate spiritual truths into my consciousness and they become the foundation of my life. My belief system affects my work, relationships, and approach to life. I give thanks for answering the call to follow the spiritual path.
Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.—Matthew 5:3

Let Go Let God as the Beloved

I am the beloved of God.
In times of darkness, I remember difficulties give me a chance to grow. I faithfully turn within for wisdom and peace. As my old thinking clears away, divine light radiates from my heart to every aspect of my life. I dance in grace, knowing I am a wondrous creation of God! In this state, my eyes open to everyday miracles. The sun rises every morning and nourishes the planet. Rain waters the soil and trees bear the fruit I enjoy. On top of that, Earth is home to so many amazing animals. God, the source of all creation, is active in my life too. I confidently affirm peace, happiness, good health, and prosperity. I am the beloved of God.
For now the winter is past, the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth; the time of singing has come.—Song of Solomon 2:11-12

Let Go Let God Vow

I vow to always love God.
This month we celebrate love as we attend weddings and mark anniversaries. As I bask in the glow of loving couples, I renew my vow to my relationship with Spirit. I will always love God. Restating my commitment, I renew my sacred contract to love myself, my family, and my friends. I adore them and always will. I love the special people in my life without reservation or conditions. I am there to support them and help them—for better or for worse. As the peace of God fills my heart and soul, I pledge to exercise patience, understanding, and forgiveness. Our love is established in God and it is sacred.
Now that you have purified your souls by your obedience to the truth so that you have genuine mutual love, love one another deeply from the heart.—1 Peter 1:22

Let Go Let God with Inner Peace

I am peace within, and I choose peace without.
Inner peace and outer peace are closely linked. Inner peace does not depend on outer conditions. Still, I seek out peaceful places and people on my path to serenity. I may create time in my schedule for solitude in nature—perhaps a walk in the park or in my own backyard. I also plan sacred time at home and enjoy a period of quiet each day. I surround myself with compassionate people who share a commitment to a spiritual path. I belong to a spiritual community in which I am supported and uplifted. Here, I am a peaceful presence for others. As I make peaceful choices for my life, I embody inner peace.
And if anyone is there who shares in peace, your peace will rest on that person; but if not, it will return to you.—Luke 10:6

Let Go Let God Provide Guidance

I turn to God for guidance and understanding.
We have information at our fingertips thanks to smartphones and the Internet. I may be tempted to rely on technology as my one-stop shop for help with every decision. However, for personal direction, I always start with the most important and reliable source of guidance—God. Spirit in me has the answer to every question. My process of asking for guidance begins with the release of any perceived limitations or stressful feelings. As I relax in the Silence, I listen with my heart, mind, and senses. My inner voice speaks lovingly and my guidance is clear. Centered in God, I am awake to the guidance I seek.
O send out your light and your truth; let them lead me; let them bring me to your holy hill and to your dwelling.—Psalm 43:3

Let Go Let God in Baptism

I go forth in the name of Love.
When I think of the baptism of Jesus, I imagine it provided him with a clearer understanding of himself as a bearer of peace and love. When I meditate, I may experience a cleansing similar to a baptism and emerge feeling God’s grace. My baptism in love may bring forth an intense feeling of compassion as I look into the eyes of another. I may feel divine love during prayer and know I am Spirit expressing. God may call me to be the hands and heart of love as I volunteer and help others. Today I am baptized in the name of love and I go forth, as Jesus did, to be love, compassion, and kindness in the world.
Then Jesus said to them, “The cup that I drink you will drink; and with the baptism with which I am baptized, you will be baptized.”–Mark 10:39

Let Go Let God be Comforted

God is always present to comfort me.
At times, I may feel alone, confused, or overwhelmed. As unpleasant as this may be, these emotions are a natural part of the human experience. I move through pain knowing I am never truly alone. God is with me always. As Lord Alfred Tennyson said, “Closer is He than breathing; and nearer than hands and feet.” Whenever I need clarity or guidance, I find a quiet place and turn within. I share my heartfelt desires, knowing God hears my words, both spoken and unspoken. My prayers allow me to release my cares to the Universe. As I lean into Love, I am peaceful and serene. I am supported in any situation that may arise. God is always present to comfort and guide me.
This is my comfort in my distress, that your promise gives me life.—Psalm 119:50

Let Go Let God in the Sacred

I connect with the sacred in me.
In times when my mind wanders into worry and fear, I connect with the sacred Source of life and inspiration within me. I turn away from the outer world—I breathe deeply to calm my busy mind. I find solace and comfort by letting go into the Holy Presence. My breathing becomes soft and steady. My body relaxes into profound peace. God is the energy animating my existence. As I focus on this energy, I find myself naturally moving into a higher state of consciousness. My mind becomes quiet. I dedicate time today and every day to connect with God in prayer and meditation. In these precious moments, one with the Sacred Presence, I am filled with trust. In the sacredness of who I am, all is well.
In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust.—Psalm 56:4

Let Go Let God on Father's Day

I honor all fathers today.
Fathers teach by the way they live. They model love as they provide support, strength, wisdom, and guidance. My father may have taught me to work hard, be reliable, willing, and patient. Fathers continue to learn and grow throughout their lives, as we all do. Our relationship may be strong and loving, or it may have its ups and downs. I am grateful fathers do their best for their children. Whether my father lives or I hold his memory in my heart, today I honor him and pray for his well-being. I hold a vision of all fathers as models of faith and love—blessing their families for generations.
So he set off and went to his father. But while he was still far off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion; he ran and put his arms around him and kissed him.—Luke 15:20

Let Go Let God in World Peace

I open to peace and send love to the world.
I envision the world as a community in which all people live harmoniously, respectfully, and peacefully. I imagine a world where peace extends beyond borders. We celebrate our differences—the spice that makes us unique and interesting. I look at how I support or obstruct my vision for peace. With greater understanding of myself, I cultivate peace and love in me, and pray for Spirit to shine forth. I have faith in the Divine in each person, and I let go of personal differences. Centered in Love, I treat others with kindness, dignity, and respect. I approach people who are different from me with curiosity instead of fear. I honor diversity and bring peace to the world.
Peace be to the whole community, and love with faith.—Ephesians 6:23

Let Go Let God Dissolve

As error beliefs dissolve, I claim my abundant good.
I may sometimes feel barraged with messages of powerlessness and limitation. Today I remove any power of such ideas over me. I choose to see what I believe, rather than believe what I see. In the Gospel of Matthew, it is written, “Ask, and it will be given you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you.” I ask God to remove erroneous beliefs from my mind. I seek the riches of the heavenly kingdom. I knock on the door to my good. Old beliefs about myself dissolve. I replace them with visions of my magnificent, highest Self. I claim my right to the abundance of God’s kingdom, knowing beyond a doubt God is good.
You were taught to put away your former way of life, your old self ... and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds.—Ephesians 4:22-23

Let Go Let God be Pure in Heart

I am pure in heart and I am blessed.
God is forever active in my life and in the lives of others. We read in the Bible, in Acts 17:28, in God “we live and move and have our being.” Yet sometimes I fail to remember the Christ is with me in all situations. Daily drama or current events may cause me to feel separate from Spirit. I may forget my true nature. I have the power to overcome feelings of separation. In my daily prayer, I turn my attention to the healing power of God. As I pray, a cleansing occurs. Thoughts of fear and separation are released. The Truth of Love and Oneness fills my mind and frees my heart. With clarity restored, I see God and good everywhere. I am pure in heart, and I am blessed.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.—Matthew 5:8

Let Go Let God See Prosperity

I prosper by seeing and claiming the good.
While many distractions in life may lead me to focus on what is not working, today I choose a prosperous outlook instead. I remember to “look for the good.” In fact, I make this my mantra for everyday life. Even if I face some challenges, I see blessings in my health, creative endeavors, finances, and family. I see openness, kindness, and other positive qualities within myself. I even see the good that can come from tragedy. I notice how communities affected by natural disasters band together to rebuild homes and lives. By seeing the good, I feel uplifted. My prosperous attitude inspires others as well. The multiplying power of prosperity is at work through me—and it is good!
May you see the prosperity … all the days of your life.–Psalm 128:5

Let Go Let God from a Spiritual Perspective

I see myself from a higher vantage point.
Tethering my life to the way I have always thought does not serve me well. Instead, I think of life like a ride in a hot air balloon. I rise above limited points of view and experience the freedom of a broad perspective. My awareness expands, clouds of confusion clear away, and I see beyond any obstacles. From a higher vantage point, I see myself as the divine being I am. There is more than one way to accomplish what I wish. I have unlimited choices to cocreate my world and the liberty to choose wisely and pursue new possibilities. As I rise to a higher awareness, my new perspective gives me clear direction. Inspired, I soar beyond all limitations.
Lift up your heads, O gates! and be lifted up, O ancient doors! that the King of glory may come in.—Psalm 24:7

Let Go Let God through Healing

I am healthy in mind, body, and spirit.
If I am not feeling my best, I remember wholeness is the divine blueprint for my mind, body, and spirit. I use my power of imagination to envision perfect health. With that vision in mind, I turn within to bless and thank each part of my body, knowing every cell of my being seeks to express the wholeness of God. When I feel confused or adrift, I recall my constant connection with Spirit. I come back to the wholeness of God. I release any mental, emotional, or physical resistance to complete healing. As I remain focused on wholeness, I am healed in mind, body, and spirit. I am at ease as I move and breathe. The healing power of Spirit is always present. I am grateful for perfect health.
On the day I called, you answered me, you increased my strength of soul.—Psalm 138:3

Let Go Let God be Free

I experience true freedom as I awaken to my spiritual nature.
Today I stop placing limits on my ability to live the life of my dreams. I start by taking an honest look at what I believe about myself. I identify false, destructive thoughts and sweep them out of my mind. This cleansing reveals the beautiful being I Am—made in the image and likeness of God. What a breath of fresh air! I revel in true freedom as I embrace my spiritual identity. I soar like an eagle, catching currents of divine energy. As others see my strength and agility, I effortlessly attract my good. I am limitless. Life becomes sweeter and brighter as I ascend into this new understanding of myself. I become more prosperous, healthy, and happy as I embrace my spiritual truth.
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.—2 Corinthians 3:17

Let Go Let God all is in Divine Order

I see God as all, in all.
If my house is messy, I start by cleaning one room and working my way out from the cleared spot. If I perceive my life is in disarray, I begin with one thought: I am one with God. I hold this truth in my mind and speak the words out loud. I recall when I have experienced Oneness and reaffirm trust in divine order. I have no fear because God is in my health, finances, and relationships. As I follow my inner guidance, I release the old, act on new ideas, and change what needs to be changed. I see God as all, and in all, and celebrate the miracle of divine order in my life.
So Jacob said to his household and to all who were with him, “Put away the foreign gods that are among you, and purify yourselves, and change your clothes.”—Genesis 35:2

Let Go Let God with Heart's Desire

My heart’s desire is to know God.
As a child, I may have demanded a particular toy or treat. It seemed so important at the time! As I matured, my desires became less about tangible things and more about spiritual matters. Now, I understand the fleeting nature of worldly success and the permanence of true prosperity. My greatest source of wealth is my relationship with God. I give thanks for opportunities to grow closer to Spirit. I embrace activities that draw me closer to God. I may find Spirit while singing in a choir, caring for my family, or being of service. Throughout the day, I remind myself my heart’s desire is to know and live in Love.
May he grant you your heart’s desire, and fulfill all your plans.—Psalm 20:4

Let Go Let God in Faith

I trust in God and see beauty everywhere.
My faith feeds me like the rain and sun nourish flowers. I call on faith in all my life circumstances and yield a beautiful bouquet of experiences. I dig into my faith by looking beyond appearances that may seem limiting. My faith leads me to explore new possibilities. I plant positive thoughts in my mind, then let go. I leave the “when” and “how” up to God, and trust in divine order. I nourish my garden of faith by connecting with God in this moment. I envision myself growing in the light of Spirit. I adapt to life’s changes with ease. Just as the gardener reaps a bountiful harvest, I receive abundant blessings. I trust in God and see beauty everywhere.
For we walk by faith, not by sight.—2 Corinthians 5:7

Let Go Let God Pray for Others

When I pray for others, I experience our Oneness.
Praying for others is a sacred honor. I may pray for someone by writing their name on my prayer list. I visualize each person on my list and see them as God does. I speak an affirmative prayer specifically for them. If someone seeks guidance, I see them walking confidently in the direction of their good. For healing, I imagine them whole, well, energized, and free. When I hear of someone’s heartache, I envision them wrapped in the peace of Spirit. When I pray for others, I pray for myself. I empathize, knowing our human experience has similar challenges. We are one in Spirit—strong, wise, and whole.
Therefore … pray for one another, so that you may be healed. The prayer of the righteous is powerful and effective.–James 5:16

Let Go Let God in the Presence

I am centered in the One Presence and One Power.
When challenges come my way, I move through them with ease by staying centered in Christ. I relax into the awareness of the unconditional love of God. In the Presence, I am strong, healthy, and wise. I see clearly how to direct my energy toward my highest potential. I allow God’s presence to flow in me and through me. Whether I am peeling potatoes or practicing piano, I do so mindfully. I radiate the light of God while leading meetings, riding the bus, and relaxing with friends. Centered in God, all illusions of separation disappear. In this blessed state, I affirm there is only One Presence and One Power—God—the essence of who I am.
You show me the path of life. In your presence there is fullness of joy; in your right hand are pleasures forevermore.—Psalm 16:11

Let Go, Let God

I release old habits, and fill my mind with divine ideas.
Old beliefs or habits sometimes reappear in my life. They may resurface if I am distracted or stressed. Every time I “wake up” from the actions of the old me, I pause for a deep breath and remember to let go, and let God. Some deeply rooted habits or beliefs may take longer to eliminate from my consciousness. I acknowledge them as habitual energy that has lingered from the past. Yet no mind pattern is stronger than God. In prayer, I affirm my truth: I release old patterns, habits, and beliefs. I am filled with confidence and courage. As I let go, and let God within lead my life, my mind is filled with divine ideas. I am confident, creative, and compassionate. I am one with God.
Now I know only in part; then I will know fully, even as I have been fully known.—1 Corinthians 13:12

Let Go Let God See Abundant Blessings

My eyes are open to the unlimited blessings of God.
God’s blessings multiply when I open my eyes to them. I see and experience the blessings of God every day. Some of my blessings are subtle—as when I bump into a friend I haven’t seen in a long time or find the perfect gift. Others are more significant—I receive a promotion, get married, or celebrate the birth of a child. God’s blessings are always within and around me. My part is to be open to them, to be aware of the activity of God at work in my life, and maintain an attitude of gratitude. Through my increased awareness of God’s blessings, I find happiness in the little things, and joy in the big things. Thank you, God, for abundant blessings.
Happy are the people to whom such blessings fall; happy are the people whose God is the Lord.—Psalm 144:15

Let Go Let God be Skillful

I have a mind filled with wisdom and a heart filled with love.
I may have made mistakes because I lacked the knowledge or skill to handle a certain situation. Yet feeling guilty is pointless and only hurts my self-confidence. Instead, I see where I have made mistakes, take responsibility for them, make amends, and let them go. I trust I am becoming more skillful in my interactions and relationships. As an expression of the Christ, I am innately wise and loving. I see myself acting skillfully in difficult situations—listening to my mind and heart. I approach every circumstance with peace and understanding. Guided by Spirit, I express patience, acceptance, forgiveness, and grace. I behold the Christ in myself and in all others. I am wise, loving, and grateful.
For wisdom will come into your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul.—Proverbs 2:10

Let Go Let God in Harmony

I contribute to harmony in the world by embracing diversity.
Rainbows provide a wonderful example of harmony. Each color is clearly defined, yet they all come together perfectly for a beautiful work of natural art. The diversity of humanity is similar: Each person shines in his or her own unique way, yet together we create a portrait of love, peace, patience, forgiveness, understanding, and oneness. God expresses in a multitude of colors, voices, and ways of being. Harmony among people begins with me. The apostle Paul wrote that we are to make “every effort to maintain unity of Spirit in the bond of peace.” I contribute to harmony in the world by embracing the beauty of diversity.
Lead a life worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love.—Ephesians 4:1-3

Let Go Let God Graduate

I graduate into a higher level of spiritual understanding.
Formal schooling eventually comes to an end, while spiritual lessons continue forever. I recognize the ultimate lesson in life is not gaining worldly knowledge or academic credentials. Rather, it is realizing and embodying the presence of Christ. Today I celebrate the beginning of a new stage of spiritual development. Step-by-step, I am learning to express my divine nature. I welcome each new phase with eagerness. I know God is guiding me to the highest and best expression of my holy gifts. My deepest joy comes from unfolding more of the love and life of Spirit in me. I am grateful for each step in this profound and sacred journey.
How great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.—Colossians 1:27

Let Go Let God in Grace

I open my heart to God’s grace.

God’s love includes an ever-present source of ease—the gift of divine grace. If I am praying for resolution to a situation for myself or a loved one, I affirm the truth: The activity of God’s grace ensures every need is met. While grace is always there, I may close my heart to the peace it provides. As I stay in touch with God through prayer and meditation, I become more aware of the life-giving presence of grace. I expect a happy, healthy solution to emerge as I ask for guidance. Grace heals me and prepares me to accept more goodness in my life. Prosperity, joy, and peace are mine. I open my heart to grace and bask in my Oneness with God.
Through whom we have received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith among all the Gentiles for the sake of his name.—Romans 1:5

Tuesday, June 2, 2015

Let Go Let God with Forgiveness

Thank you, sweet Spirit, for the gift of forgiveness.
I both give and receive the gift of forgiveness when I release a painful situation to God. This does not mean I condone what happened—I simply choose to let it go. My past has only as much power over me as I give it. I can let my past hold me back or I can move on. I can carry the weight of emotional pain forever, or lay it down and release it to God. I choose to be free from resentment, anger, and hurt. As I release the pain of the past, I claim the life of peace I deserve. My load lightens, my pain heals, and my heart opens. Forgiveness frees me to laugh, love, and embrace a life of joy. Thank you, sweet Spirit, for the gift of forgiveness.
He will wipe every tear from their eyes ... mourning and crying and pain will be no more, for the first things have passed away.—Revelation 21:4

Let Go Let God with Wisdom

Christ within is my guiding light, and it directs me in all that I think and do.

Recognizing Christ within is recognizing one’s identity with God. This recognition causes one to contact the light of God and to be guided by its wisdom in all that he undertakes. Your decisions are always good when they are made through Christ understanding. Never think or say that you do not know a thing. To deny that you know a thing is to deny your Christhood and the power of the Christ Light. Within you is that which is more than capable of leading and directing you in every experience that may come to you. Christ in you is your ability to know things with the wisdom of God. Christ in you enlightens your consciousness and directs you into your highest good.

Christ shall give thee light.—Ephesians 5:14
