Let Go Let God Believe I Can

I have the power to make a difference.
Throughout my life I may have heard differing opinions about my ability to succeed. Jesus taught “the one who believes in me will also do the works that I do and, in fact, will do greater works than these.” If he could proclaim the unlimited potential of those who would come after him, how could I believe anything less? In my prayer time I become aware of the spark of divinity within me that holds that potential. From this awareness I am able to see situations around me in a new perspective. I believe in myself. Any past mistakes or error thinking is simply that—the past. I now move forward in faith, affirming: I can!
Very truly, I tell you, the one who believes in me will also do the works that I do and, in fact, will do greater works than these, because I am going to the Father.—John 14:12

Let Go Let with Good Choices

I envision the positive changes I seek.
Many of the majestic trees that we enjoy now are here because someone made the decision to plant a seedling. That small choice grew into something greater for generations to enjoy. Right now, take the time to plant the changes that you would like to see. Linger awhile to share your appreciation for those you love, and even offer good seed words for perfect strangers. Take good care of the seed stock of your thoughts. A few moments spent with eyes closed, envisioning good outcomes and radiating positive energy will put you into the flow of positive growth. These are the choices that you can make today. These are the seeds that you can plant.
Isaac sowed seed in that land, and in the same year reaped a hundredfold. The Lord blessed him.—Genesis 26:12

Let Go Let God be Protected

I am secure in God’s loving presence.
Being in my own home, where I am surrounded by my own things and the people and pets I love, gives me a sense of security. Yet anywhere I go, I can feel protected because I am secure in God’s loving presence. Although I cannot visibly see God’s presence surrounding me, I know I am divinely protected. With God as my ever-present guide, I do not fear anything or anyone. I am serene and confident because God is with me. I am never alone. This awareness brings me true peace and comfort. If I find myself facing a possibly dangerous situation, I remain calm. I have the strength and clarity of thought to recognize and accept what I need to do to stay safe. I am secure in God’s loving presence.

But you, O Lord, are a shield around me, my glory, and the one who lifts up my head.—Psalm 3:3

Let Go Let God Pray for Others

I honor all people by holding them in prayer.
What would happen if we put a new spin on the old adage keep your friends close and your “not so friendly acquaintances” closer? Today let’s choose to hold in prayer those we might not have considered keeping in thought and mind. As we pray for and with others, we are reminded that we are all part of God’s family. We feel a oneness to God’s infinite love—a love that enfolds the world. Our prayers extend to those in other circumstances, other communities, and other nations. Centering ourselves in God’s loving presence, one prayer at a time, one person at a time, we make a difference in the world. Praying is an honor and a joy, and a step toward peace as we bless all those for whom we pray.
A scoffer seeks wisdom in vain, but knowledge is easy for one who understands.—Proverbs 14:6

Let Go Let God with Inner Peace

I am a radiating center of love. I am peaceful and free.
In the midst of any challenge, I remember to pause and affirm: I am a radiating center of love. I am peaceful and free. Affirming this does not mean that outer challenges will not happen. Being at peace means I have the resources to handle whatever arises in my life. Through prayer, I can reconnect at any time with God’s presence within—my source of peace. Here, nothing can disturb the calm serenity of my soul. I let go of mental chatter and bring my attention to my heart. I rest in the Silence. I monitor my breathing, slowly inhaling love and exhaling peace. I gently move into a sense of well-being. I affirm again: I am a radiating center of love. I am peaceful and free.
Go in peace. The mission you are on is under the eye of the Lord.—Judges 18:6

Let Go Let God in Simplicity

I rest in the simplicity of life.

In a world continually growing in technology and complexity, I find respite when I give my time and attention to the simple things in life. Simplicity can be found in nature, in the love shared with family and friends, in the stillness of the Silence, in the unbridled laughter of small children. I give attention to these things because they bring ease and joy into my life. The challenges of day-to-day responsibilities and commitments can make anyone feel overwhelmed. Making simplicity a priority in my life helps create balance. When I stay connected to the simple things in life, I feel more relaxed. I am more prepared overall to do the things I need to do, and I feel in control. I make time for simplicity, and I experience more ease in my life.
Strive first for the kingdom of God.—Matthew 6:33

Let Go Let God as a Caregiver

I am blessed as I care for others, and they care for me.
Perhaps the most difficult job anyone can undertake is that of a caregiver. It is a full-time commitment that requires tremendous energy, confidence, and inner strength. Although challenging at times, caregiving is rewarding. Spending quality time with a loved one while sharing moments and memories is priceless. I give thanks for the caregivers I have known—parents, friends, teachers—and the roles they have played in my life. I give thanks as well for the opportunities I have had to care for others. Caregiving is an opportunity to share my love and skills in compassionate and caring ways. By giving of myself in this way, I receive unlimited joys and blessings.
You have granted me life and steadfast love, and your care has preserved my spirit.—Job 10:12

Let Go Let God Trust

With God all things are possible.
When things are going well in my life, it’s easy to have faith and trust. Yet doubt may surface if outcomes are less than what I expected. During those times, I affirm: With God all things are possible. Even when I do not personally see a desired, completed result, I am faithfully aware of God’s presence and power. I know that in my guidance, planning, and actions, I am never alone. God is here, with and within me. My faith in God never wavers. God is present. God is all-knowing. My faith is strong. I know with sureness of faith that with God all things are possible.
So we are always confident; even though we know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord—for we walk by faith, not by sight.—2 Corinthians 5:6-7

Let Go Let God be Good Stewards

I bless the earth through my loving thoughts and actions.
My loving thoughts and actions are an extension of myself—reaching out to bless my life, my relationships, and my community. I extend my reach to include the earth as well. The natural resources available nourish and sustain humankind, so of course I want to be a good steward of what God has provided. If I see litter left behind, I throw it away. I take care not to harm the earth in any way, and I make choices that benefit the earth’s inhabitants by recycling whenever possible. This magnificent planet blesses us with food to eat, water to drink, and oxygen to breath. Earth is our home, and I commit to doing my part to be a good steward.
The earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it, the world, and those who live in it; for he has founded it on the seas, and established it on the rivers.—Psalm 24:1-2

Let Go Let God be Reliable

I rely on the one Presence and one Power: God.
If I depend solely on the stock market for my prosperity, I may lose savings. If I build my self-esteem based on the opinions of others, I may suffer. Dependence upon external things for happiness may not always bring the desired result. My certainty comes when I rely on God, the one Presence and one Power. All I need is a slight shift in perspective to realize there is a greater reality. I begin by connecting with God through prayer. I meditate and listen to solutions, trusting in the spiritual practice of asking and receiving. I maintain my practice, even when it seems nothing is happening. I open my heart and observe how things unfold for my greater good. I am never alone; God is always with me.
And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.—Matthew 28:20

Let Go Let God with Purpose

I listen as Spirit calls me to become all that I can be.
Every living thing has purpose—from the tiniest insect to the mightiest elephant. Yet I may find myself wondering: Who am I here to be? What is mine to do? When I seek greater awareness of my purpose, I turn within. I recall my values and passions. Whether I am currently living on purpose or seeking a specific way of expressing, Spirit calls me to become all that I can be. The call may be as obvious as a stampede of elephants or as subtle as the whisper of a butterfly’s wings. My commitment is to keep listening and answering the call of life and to play my original part in this wondrous world. When I love what I do and do it with purpose, I am a blessing to the world.
We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose.—Romans 8:28

Let Go Let God through Heart Light

My heart light shines on all of my relationships.
Jesus gave the greatest example of love when he asked God to forgive those who crucified him. The human heart can mend its deepest wounds and continue loving. I, too, can develop this immense capacity to forgive and love. If someone directs his or her pain and misunderstanding my way, I practice forgiveness. I ask my higher power for the resilience to make it through the experience and to keep me emotionally balanced. Divinely guided, I establish boundaries where needed and see all those involved illumined with wisdom and understanding. God’s love in me is greater than any situation. The moment passes, and my heart remains, shining brightly on all of my relationships.
Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing.—Luke 23:34

Let Go Let God as a Child of God

I am a child of God, blessed by divine inheritance.
If I ever doubt that I am worthy of God’s blessings, I remind myself of the Truth: I am a child of God, and through God’s grace, I am deserving of every blessing. God’s will for me is that I am healthy and whole. Through grace, God’s life courses through every cell and atom of my being, healing what needs to be healed and promoting life throughout my body. I live an abundant life. God’s amazing grace works in and through me, blessing me with love and prosperity. I have access to all the wisdom and understanding I will ever need to be happy and successful. I know what to do and when to do it. Through God’s amazing grace, I am guided to the path that will bless me most.
Stephen, full of grace and power, did great wonders and signs among the people.—Acts 6:8

Let Go Let God with Joy

I am joyful. I am free!
Jesus spoke of joy as an inner quality, divine in nature. “I have said these things to you so that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be complete.” Joy is my essence, a fundamental part of my being. Joy allows me to approach any circumstance with a lightness of spirit and a sense of humor. I love life! When I look at situations with optimism, the world around me reveals wonder for all it offers. My bliss does not depend on outer conditions; rather happiness becomes my innate response, welling up from within. One joyful thought starts a chain reaction, just as a ready smile invites others to smile too. I am cocreator with God, developing the life I want. I am joyful. I am free!
Consider it nothing but joy … that you may be mature and complete, lacking in nothing.—James 1:2, 4

Let Go Let God with Patience

I am patient and kind.
Do I find myself getting frustrated or doubtful when things do not go the way I think they should? If so, I can take a moment to put away these thoughts and think instead of God. My strength, my courage, my confidence comes from my relationship with the Divine. God loves me and fills me with a peace that surpasses all understanding. Surrounded by the mantle of God’s love and peace, I find the patience to endure. I am patient and kind. I consider myself an ambassador of peace on earth, and I know in my heart that God’s will is being done—even though it may not always be immediately apparent. I let go of doubts and remain steadfast. I patiently wait for God’s good to reveal itself in every area of my life.
Love is patient; love is kind.—1 Corinthians 13:4

Let Go Let God Open to Prosperity

Trusting the prospering power of Spirit, I open to new and infinite blessings.
Prosperity is the divine inheritance of every person. Reaping God’s bounty comes by accepting responsibility for my consciousness around matters of wealth. I affirm that the indwelling God is my instant, constant, and infinite source of supply and allow myself to feel the truth of those words. I nurture these seed thoughts in the fertile soil of divine substance and weed out any thoughts of lack or limitation that may be spoiling the fruits of my labor. Even if the landscape of my outer life appears barren, I faithfully keep my thoughts centered on the divine ideas of abundance and sufficiency. As I cultivate my consciousness, I open the way to new and infinite blessings.
He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will ... increase the harvest of your righteousness.—2 Corinthians 9:10

Let Go Let God in World Peace

Expressions of love and compassion pave the way toward peace.
A classic hymn begins, “Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me; let there be peace on earth, the peace that was meant to be.” We have the ability to be peace and to bring peace to the world by expressing love, compassion, and understanding for all humanity. The grace of God goes before us, releasing fear, greed, and envy. All nations, all humanity, are part of a greater whole—cohabitants of our planet. Divinely guided, our words, thoughts, and actions help create and maintain world peace. We are expressions of the Divine, and as such, we can allow love and compassion to pave the way toward peace. Today let our prayer be, “Let there be peace of earth, and let it begin with me.”
Be at peace with one another.—Mark 9:50

Let Go Let God in Time

I value every moment.
If we are doing something we enjoy, time seems to speed by. The opposite can also be true: If we are watching the clock, time may crawl. With either scenario, are we living fully in each moment, grateful for each opportunity to be blessed and a blessing? Each moment of our lives is a gift from God. As we go through this day, let us determine to treat each moment as a divine appointment. Rather than dreading the tasks on our to-do list, we can approach them with attitudes of joy and expectation, knowing that we bless ourselves when we give our best effort. Every day of our lives is a blessing. Centered in God, we recognize that we have enough time to accomplish more than we ever dreamed and that every moment holds opportunity.
For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.—Ecclesiastes 3:1

Let Go Let God with Willingness

I am open and courageous as I follow my heart to new adventures.
I give thanks for divine discontent—that inner stirring to do or be more. With each inner nudge, I have an opportunity to express more fully my divine potential. I open to my higher voice, the whisper of Spirit in my heart, compelling me forward on new quests and rewarding life experiences. I listen to Spirit—receptive to inner counsel and watchful for outer signs that might point me in the right direction. With an attitude of willingness, I discern my next steps. I enthusiastically move forward in faith, ready for the good that I know is unfolding before me. Open to Spirit, I willingly step outside my comfort zone. My personal development and spiritual growth expand to new and fulfilling heights.
All my words that I shall speak to you receive in your heart.—Ezekiel 3:10

Let Go Let God in Anticipation

I greet the day with joy and anticipation.
Anticipation is the energy that causes me to pop out of bed ready to greet each new day. I look forward to the activities the day holds, knowing there is something wonderful about to happen. Anticipation activates my excitement and zeal, working like a magnet to pull in joy. When I share my anticipation with others, they, too, are energized, multiplying the joy that we experience. I look forward to opportunities for me to be of help to family and friends and ways I can express God’s love in my life. I look ahead to applying positive approaches to life’s challenges and gaining knowledge. I greet the day with joy and anticipation.
Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not clothed like one of these.—Matthew 6:28-29

Let Go Let God all is in Divine Order

The presence of God within illumines my mind and guides my actions.

A health or financial challenge may seem to cloud our thoughts. Discord in business or personal relationships may feel overwhelming. Yet regardless of appearances, we can see beyond any illusion when we affirm the Truth: The presence of God within illumines my mind and guides my actions. No longer does the past or present occupy our thinking in negative ways. Instead, we dwell on the comforting truth that God is with us, at all times and in all ways. Centering our minds on constructive, loving, hopeful ideas, we are ready for a spiritual awakening. In quietness and confidence, we rise above limitation and rejoice in the light of a new day.
But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn, which shines brighter and brighter until full day.—Proverbs 4:18

Let Go Let God with a Heart Blessing

My heart supports my mind and body. All is well.
My heart serves a variety of functions. On a physical level, my heart pumps blood throughout my body. For this vital organ to do its job effectively, all passageways must remain open and clear. So I bless my heart by following a nutritious diet and exercising regularly. From an emotional aspect, my heart is the center of goodness, love, and passion that radiates throughout my entire being. Like the physical, my emotions must remain free of blockages to function well. So I resist clinging to the past or harboring negative attitudes. My heart beats in perfect rhythm with the life of God within me. If the eye is a window to the soul, then surely the heart is the living receptacle of God’s love.
I speak as to children—open wide your hearts also.—2 Corinthians 6:13

Let Go Let God Forgive

As I forgive, my heart responds, and I find peace.
Forgiving may be one of the most freeing experiences I can do for myself, yet it can also be the most difficult. A thoughtless act or a hurtful word can leave me feeling physically ill and emotionally drained. At such times I can turn within to find freeing, forgiving love, ready to support me as I move forward. In a time of prayer, I turn my thoughts to the person I need to forgive and envision the love of God embracing us both. I pray that understanding and peace are established in our relationship. We are all growing toward the perfect expression of God’s love, and each opportunity to take a step forward is a blessed and welcomed opportunity.
So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new!—2 Corinthians 5:17

Let Go Let God in Healing

Divine life renews every cell of my body.
When people unite in prayer wonderful things happen. The collective consciousness of many praying hearts opens the floodgates of positive energy. Today I focus my thoughts and prayers on health and wholeness for everyone. I envision a world where all people live in an awareness of divine potential and where we reap the rewards of healthy living. I envision food and water for everyone, affordable medical care and treatment for those in need, and education to help people live healthier, more productive lives. I envision divine life renewing every cell of every person. Praying hearts, united as one, create a powerful healing energy that is far-reaching. Divine life is actively at work, renewing and revitalizing.
For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them.—Matthew 18:20

Let Go Let God with Guidance

Guided by divine wisdom, I soar to new heights of understanding.
There are times in my life when I want a strong connection with another person or group but instead encounter static. Perhaps there is confusion or lack of clarity in a relationship. Maybe I am feeling a bit overwhelmed or underappreciated at work. If I simply step back from the situation and open myself to a higher knowing, I find that I am now and always have been supported by Spirit. I listen to Spirit and attune myself to the many ways my guidance comes to me—through a gut feeling, an inner knowing, a divine idea, the next song I hear on the radio, a dream. Guidance may come as a flash, or it may be the result of gradual direction given to me in prayer. Guided by divine wisdom, I soar to new heights of understanding.
If we live by the Spirit, let us also be guided by the Spirit.—Galatians 5:25

Let Go, Let God

Letting go, I let God express uniquely in each person I meet.
Each individual I encounter is a unique expression of the Infinite Spirit. While I might recognize this intellectually, I might not always behave as if it were true. I may convince myself that I know what is best for a loved one and struggle to get that person to change. In such cases, as I take a deep breath, I remember that the Divine is present in every person and situation. Trusting this, I let go of any efforts to control or change anyone else. I honor the divinity in each individual by placing my faith in their innate spiritual intelligence and wisdom. Remembering that the indwelling Spirit is ever present and in charge of all, I relax and let each person be himself or herself.
All our steps are ordered by the Lord.—Proverbs 20:24

Let Go Let God in Faith

I have faith to live in confidence.
Jesus taught that even a little faith—the size of a mustard seed—can dissolve seemingly difficult challenges. I remind myself faith is more than just hoping for the best. It is an expectant, resilient attitude of mind I nurture every time I pray. Placing my trust in God, I believe in positive outcomes. My enthusiasm ignites when I take steps toward my greater good. I do what is mine to do, knowing that God is in charge, and all is well. Prayer may require a time of quiet waiting, but with seeds of faith planted, I am confident I will grow and prosper. Prayer satisfies the natural longing in my soul to experience more of God.
Jesus answered them, “Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt … even if you say to this mountain, ‘Be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ it will be done.”—Matthew 21:21

Let Go Let God Provide Grace

Thank You, God, for Your grace.
God’s goodness flows toward me—I need only be willing to receive. “Grace is God’s goodness given to you in greater proportion than you give of yourself to God ... no matter how far you reach to find God, God will reach further.” These encouraging words from The Quest by Richard and Mary-Alice Jafolla remind me that I am richly blessed by grace. Grace is not something I earn, nor will it be withheld from me when I make a mistake. My desire to connect consciously with the Divine opens the way for me to experience more of God’s good in every aspect of my life. I recognize grace in my daily activities as guidance, ideas, strength, comfort, and protection.
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 Comfort

God’s presence comforts me.
No matter where I am or what I am doing, the presence of God is with me. Just like the constant rhythm of my breath, the presence of God continuously moves in and through me, supporting me at all times. When I find myself focused on a situation causing me distress, I immediately stop and focus my attention on God, turning my mind away from the problem and centering my thoughts on God. I concentrate on my breathing—slowly inhaling, and then gently exhaling. I meditate on the qualities of Spirit such as love, peace, and joy. Soon, I experience soothing relief. The presence of God’s love is always with me, and I can seek it for comfort at any time.
Let your steadfast love become my comfort according to your promise to your servant.—Psalm 119:76

Let Go Let God with Focus

With a grateful heart, I give thanks for my blessings.
When I take a picture, I look through the lens at my subject, find the right angle and lighting, then click the shutter. Sometimes it may take a few turns of the lens to find the right focus. I can change the focus from a precise point of interest, such as a single flower to a broader point, such as an entire field of flowers. Neither is right or wrong; they are just different and unique. Just as I change the focus of my picture by turning the lens, I can refocus by changing my thoughts. I can focus on positive things rather than negative ones. I can focus on God and on the blessings of God that fill my life. As I turn the lens of my thoughts and focus on good, I create a beautiful picture filled with the things that bring me joy, peace, and abundance.
They cut out channels in the rocks, and their eyes see every precious thing.—Job 28:10
