Let Go Let God Be One With God

I am one with God and with all creation.
 
When I dip my hand into the ocean, each drop that rolls off the tip of my finger is part of the ocean and the ocean is part of it. And yet it is an individual droplet, in and of itself complete. I am much like the drop of seawater. I am part of God, and God is part of me, and the same is true for each being on the planet. We are also a piece of the whole that is humanity, and it is part of us. We are each connected to one another, united in spirit, one in consciousness. One positive thought, one act of kindness contributes to the good of all people. So I choose to honor my divine connection by doing all I can to be a blessing.
Whoever loves a brother or sister lives in the light, and in such a person there is no cause for stumbling.—1 John 2:10

Let Go Let God Forgive

I release any resentments, fears, or judgments I may hold.

As long as my infinite Spirit continues in this human experience, resentments, fears, and negative judgments will be part of the journey. By dissolving these negative reactions to the world and replacing them with the healing power of infinite love, I discover my spiritual purpose. The key to that purpose is forgiveness—allowing myself to see from the perspective of Spirit, free from the illusions of this mortal world. From that perspective I see only love expanding every day in greater expression. Today I joyfully release any resentments, fears, or negative judgments I may hold concerning others—and particularly myself.
 
Whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone; so that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses.—Mark 11:25

Let Go Let God Provide Answers

In prayer, I receive answers.
 
New projects and possibilities fill me with joy and anticipation. They can also bring with them trepidation as I consider all of the options before me. I may find myself wondering where, when, and how to proceed. I can research ideas in books or poll loved ones, but seeking external answers alone may often leave me with too many options and more questions. There is only one true source for answers: God. When I seek clarity, I turn to prayer and receive divinely-directed messages. Centered in the awareness of the presence of God, I ask the questions on my heart. I learn to listen and put my faith in the still, small voice that whispers a reply. I know what is mine to do.
For everyone who asks receives, and everyone who searches finds, and for everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.—Matthew 7:8

Let Go Let God All Is In Divine Order

I am at peace, for divine order is active in my life.
 
In Paul’s letter to the Romans, I find this reminder: All things work together for good. It does not say some things work together for good on occasion. Rather, all things. Every day, in every way, things are getting better and better because divine order is active in my life. Yet there may be times when life is a bit chaotic. Whenever this happens, I affirm: divine order. I remember that order is always happening in my life, even if I don’t see it unfolding. I don’t have to understand every step of the way, but instead trust in God. My way will be clear in the right time and in the right way. Divine order is my security, always present because wherever I am, God is.

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 Achieve Success

Success comes when my divinity and humanity act together.

What is success? I realize defining it for myself is the first step to experiencing it. When I get recognized for something I have achieved, I celebrate my success. If my goals need to change midway through, grace intervenes and carries me in a new and better direction. I sense something more powerful at work than my personal vision and effort—the presence of Spirit. I am most successful when I trust this invisible force to work alongside me and guide my path. Ultimately then, success is a partnership with Spirit. I do my part and remain open to what Spirit tells and shows me. I am most successful when I allow my divinity and humanity to act together.
 
But he said to me, “The Lord, before whom I walk, will send his angel with you and make your way successful.”—Genesis 24:40

Let Go Let God Pray for Others

I pray for my loved ones, conscious of the presence of God within them. 
 
Holding others in prayer is a powerful, sacred process. I realign my whole self, including all that I think, say, and do, with the healing, protecting presence of God. I pray for my loved ones, conscious of the presence of God within them. I let go of all concern or anxiety about each person by saying, “I bless you, knowing you are enfolded in divine loving care.” I pray that they stay attuned to their spiritual source, and that they feel the love of my prayers. The sacred activity of prayer clears my mind. I am confident that my loved ones are safe and secure, guided into their highest outcome. I am grateful for the presence of God moving through every person and every need.
 
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 Provide Guidance

The mind of God enlightens me. I am wise, courageous, and confident.
 
On occasion I may feel unsure of the direction of my life and the choices I am making. When I become aware of the anxious or vulnerable feelings that accompany uncertainty, I pause. Even a brief pause helps reset my mind and opens it to greater possibilities. When the mental whirlwind has settled, my whole being is quiet and my mind is open to receive. In the mental space that I have cleared, Spirit’s guidance comes through. Like sunshine lighting the evening sky into morning, the mind of God enlightens me! In the quiet, I hear the wisdom that lies within my own inner recesses. I feel peaceful and accomplished knowing exactly what is mine to do.
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God.—Romans 12:2

Let Go Let God Through Communication

I share a heart-and-soul connection with others.
 
T hrough social media and cell phones, we can connect with family and friends instantly. We inform and are informed as our feelings and understanding go out to others with the click of a “send” button. Still, communication doesn’t happen in a vacuum. It’s an activity between and among people. At its best, it is understood and relatable—a window into the lives of ourselves and others with new and unique vantages. Jesus was the master of communication, and the words he spoke resonated with others. His messages are as real for us today as they were for those who listened to him. I take my example from Jesus and use communication to share a heart-and-soul connection with others.
The reason I speak to them in parables is that “seeing they do not perceive, and hearing they do not listen, nor do they understand.”—Matthew 13:13

Let Go Let God Bless Fathers

God bless all fathers and fathers-to-be.
 
A beloved and often repeated prayer by individuals and in groups begins, “Our Father ...” There is both great responsibility and reward in playing the role of a father. Encouraging confidence in young ones calls for a parent to be present in all stages of children’s lives. Often it’s not until after years of being present—sometimes when kids think they are smarter than adults—that fathers are appreciated for their wisdom and devotion. A prayer is a powerful way to bless fathers: “God, bless fathers with all they need to be wise and loving parents.” And perhaps a prayer is even more immediate when a father or a father-to-be prays: “God, guide me in being a father that enriches the lives of my children.”
I will be a father to him, and he shall be a son to me. I will not take my steadfast love from him.—1 Chronicles 17:13

Let Go Let God with a Home Blessing

Love and peace reside in my home.
 
Entering my home gives me a sense of peace. My home is more than a shelter. It is a place where I feel comfortable and secure, where I think and plan, where I rest and relax. I want it to be a place that welcomes others and makes them feel comfortable. I give my home a blessing. With each thought and prayer, I create an environment that nourishes love, peace, and respect. I bless my home with these thoughts:
These walls are built with love. The windows allow the sun’s light to shine in and remind me that I, too, let light shine through me. Into each corner of every room, I send peace. Love resides here, creating warmth and inviting camaraderie and goodwill. All who enter its doors are welcome.

Whatever house you enter, first say, “Peace to this house!”—Luke 10:5

Let Go Let God with Faith

In every moment I draw upon the spiritual quality of faith.
 
A popular quote by Martin Luther King Jr. states, “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” This serves as a poignant reminder to remain courageous in every moment by drawing upon the spiritual quality of faith. I can create a morning ritual where the first thing I do is turn within to the presence of God and relax. My faith is activated when I remember that God will see me through. Quietly, I affirm to myself, “My way is made clear” and any sense of concern washes away. Aligned with spiritual principles, I begin my day in faith. No matter what the need is, I draw upon the spiritual quality of faith and my way is made clear.
If you do not doubt in your heart, but believe that what you say will come to pass, it will be done for you.—Mark 11:23

Let Go Let God in Prosperity

I give thanks to God as my source and supply.
 
When I rely on the outer world as the basis of my abundance, I can lapse into fear and uncertainty. When I remember that God is my unfailing and limitless resource, I experience peace of mind. A consciousness of God is the one true source of my good. My heart overflows with gratitude as I reflect on this reality. In Spirit, I have unlimited access to everything I need to live a fulfilling life. I cultivate an awareness of Infinite Spirit each day, continually enriching myself with divine ideas, unexpected gifts, and windfalls. I give thanks as my world expands exponentially in direct proportion to my ever-growing spiritual faith.
The Lord will open for you his rich storehouse, the heavens, to give the rain of your land in its season and to bless all your undertakings.—Deuteronomy 28:12

Let Go Let God be Energized

I am energized by play and creativity.
 
As I watch children at play, I may admire their energy—and wonder how or when I can join them. I recall times of play and imagination in my youth. I realize my energy isn’t gone—I’ve just lost touch with it! I set aside the busyness and concerns of my day. For a moment, even if only in my mind, I am at play. The explorer, the painter, the dancer who lives in my dreams brings a smile to my face. An imaginary kite soars as I run through fields of wild flowers. The blue of the sky is so vivid and the sun so bright. I feel divine energy flowing through me. I plan for times of play and creativity, knowing it energizes my thoughts and my body. Play is a priority!
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs.”—Matthew 19:14

Let Go Let God in Progress

I am on a never-ending journey of discovery.
 
If I were beginning to write about my spiritual journey, where would I start? What was it that sent me on my journey? Was it something I read or heard? In reality, my spiritual journey began before I took my first step in life. There is always an undeniable yearning of the created to connect wholly with the Creator. When I went on an inner journey, I realized that the spirit of God was at the core of my being. My journey did not end with this discovery. Every day I have 24 hours to live, move, and be as God’s love in expression. New and amazing realizations come to me as I continue to make progress on my never-ending journey of discovery.

Put these things into practice, devote yourself to them, so that all may see your progress.—1 Timothy 4:15

Let Go Let God Provide Healing

Every cell of my body is aglow with the light and life of God.
 
I believe in the healing power of God. I affirm this truth daily through my thoughts, words, and actions. My faith in God’s healing energy allows this energy to move in and through me. I open myself up to receive and I am restored to wholeness. If I am experiencing illness, I continue to affirm that I am one with God. In truth, my spirit is always whole, but as a human being I may experience dis-ease. I use affirmative prayer and meditation to help bring me back into balance with God. I focus my mind on the healing power of God and envision each cell of my body vibrant with light and life. I trust in the healing power of God. I speak and act in ways that demonstrate my faith, and I open myself up to experience wholeness.
Oh Lord my God, I cried to you for help, and you have healed me.—Psalm 30:2

Let Go Let God for World Peace

I envision all people building a world of peace on a foundation of love.
 
From my limited human perspective I may feel powerless as I consider the news of the world. The reality is this: I AM a channel through which divine energies of peace and love flow freely. I use the words I AM with care, because they are my spiritual identity, the name of God nature in me. So I joyfully claim and express those energies by affirming: I AM peace. Doing so, I contribute to the creative focus that will bring a world of peace and love into expression. Today I make a conscious choice to experience peace—even at the slightest appearance of conflict. I know the choices I make today will manifest themselves to the world in wonderful, transformative ways.

And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful.—Colossians 3:15

Let Go Let God with Joy

I let my innate joy bubble forth to bless and harmonize.
 
Today I choose joy. Regardless of outer influences, I maintain a joyful outlook and a cheery disposition. I know true joy from being in touch with the Christ of my being in prayer and quiet reflection. Joy is an aspect of my divine nature not dependent upon my successes, my acquisitions, or what other people do or say. I let my innate joy bubble forth to bless and harmonize. If disappointments interrupt my joy, I acknowledge my feelings and take whatever positive steps are needed. I activate my internal reset button to refocus and continue enjoying this day. Choosing joy brings peace and lifts my spirit as if sunshine just broke through the clouds after a nourishing and cleansing rain.
For you shall go out in joy, and be led back in peace.—Isaiah 55:12

Let Go Let God as Freedom

In the presence of pure being, I am free.
 
At times I may view my roles and responsibilities as restrictions or limits on my freedom. I watch the clock, eager for release to pursue my passions. In reality, freedom is a state of consciousness I can access at any time. I pause for a gentle breath, and feel my heart and mind align. My passion is to truly be my best self. I move into the presence of pure being and become aware of the light blazing within me. All roles that appeared to be masks I was hiding behind now disappear. Chains of responsibility that I thought bound me dissolve into a series of opportunities to shine. I revel in the consciousness that I am free to be all that I was created to be, whenever and wherever I choose.

When one turns to the Lord, the veil is removed.—2 Corinthians 3:16

Let Go Let God be Genuine

I allow my inner self to shine through.
 
The inner beauty of a wood surface is revealed when its unvarnished natural grain is allowed to express itself. I reveal my true self by letting grace reveal my genuine spirit. With a relaxed, spontaneous openness, I allow my inner light to shine in a perfectly natural way.The real me is enough for each day, for others, and for myself. I need add nothing to experience my self-worth. I simply reveal my genuine self.What makes me real is that I accept myself as a sacred expression of God. I remember that this spiritual core is my potential perfection. I never give up on myself. I am a genuine expression of my sacred self.
But those who do what is true come to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that their deeds have been done in God.—John 3:21

Let Go Let God Listen

I ask, listen, and follow the guidance I receive.
 
Each morning as I awake, even before I get out of bed, I take a few moments to listen. Sometimes I hear the early-morning songs of birds. Sometimes I hear the rustling of other early-morning risers. Other times, I simply hear the stillness, inviting me to turn within and listen. In these hushed early-morning times I attune to God, open to quiet whispers in my heart. I listen with my heart and with my mind, knowing that answers come in the perfect time and way. God may speak to me as a quiet nudging of my spirit, as words on a page that suddenly hold a new meaning, or as the wise voice of a trusted loved one. In whatever form my guidance comes, I remain open and receptive to the answers I seek.
He said to them, “Listen to this dream that I dreamed.”—Genesis 37:6

Let Go Let God Know Inner Peace

I attune to God at the center of my being, and I am serene.
 
During certain hours of daylight, an object will block the light of the sun so that the shadow looms larger than the object itself. Challenges are like that and can seem much greater than they really are. To put all in the right light—divine light—I keep my attention on God. I have a resource of serenity that overcomes everyday stresses. I am not inundated by negative thoughts of “what if?” I open my mind to divine wisdom and make decisions that are best. I can always rethink a situation and make corrections in my plans and actions. This keeps me active and moving forward. I have faith in God and know that I will come through challenges whole and peace-filled.
By the tender mercy of our God, the dawn from on high will break upon us ... To guide our feet into the way of peace.—Luke 1:78, 79

Let Go Let God with Wonderment

Life is a wonder, and my heart is full of awe and gratitude.
 
Poet James Dillet Freeman wrote, “I have been alone under the sky when suddenly I was one with all the beauty and wonder and glory of the world. The sky was not high enough, the horizons were not wide enough to hold my heart.” My intention today is to recognize beauty and goodness, to be in awe of God’s creation. Whether walking on a crowded sidewalk or strolling along a country lane, I look for signs and wonders. The dandelion poking through a tiny crack in a sea of concrete represents the power of life in all things. The wheat growing in a field will become bread to feed the multitudes. Life truly is a wonder, and my heart is full of gratitude and awe.
God saw everything that he had made, and indeed, it was very good.—Genesis 1:31

Let Go, Let God

In the Silence, I feel the presence and peace of God.
 
Jesus went to the mountaintop to pray. He left the crowds and his disciples to be fully present in the Silence. My mountaintop retreat may be symbolic as I seek time apart. Whether in a chapel, a favorite chair, or quiet moments carved out from a hectic schedule, I spend time in silent communion with God. In the Silence, I turn within to a private meeting place. In this inner chamber, away from outer distractions, I pray, meditate, and listen. I am open and receptive to the still, small voice, to inspiration, to divine direction. Here in sacred oneness, I feel the assurance and peace of God. I relax my body, gently set aside my concerns, focus on my breathing, and allow myself to be enfolded in divine love. In the Silence, there is peace as I let go and let God.
He went up the mountain by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone.—Matthew 14:23

Let Go Let God through the Seasons of Life

I go through and grow through the seasons of life.
 
Some areas of the world enjoy seasonal weather, with spring giving way to summer, then fall and winter. During these times, trees and foliage reflect these various stages. I, too, am moving onward, my life and body reflecting the natural progressions of my journey. Physically, the springtime of youth gives way to adulthood and eventually to the wisdom that comes with age. Mentally, I may feel still and dormant, yet other times fresh and energetic. Through it all, my inner growth prepares the way for my outer achievements. I am continually moving forward, growing and learning as I go. I go through and grow through the seasons of life.

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.—Ecclesiastes 3:1

Let Go Let God in Relationships

In all of my relationships, I am a living, loving example of the Christ nature.
 
Every person in my life, past, present, and future, is a precious gift more valuable than any human currency. My life has been blessed by seeming angels of God in human form. I am uplifted, encouraged, and inspired. I model that behavior by reflecting kindness, compassion, and love in all of my relationships. I am a living, loving example of the Christ nature. I see the wisdom and goodness in those who I engage in a relationship with. I model love and acceptance, and forgive freely. With a willing heart, I give of my time, talent, and treasures to those in need. To the God of my being, I am eternally grateful for the opportunity to bless and be blessed through rich relationships.
Finally, all of you, have unity of spirit, sympathy, love for one another, a tender heart, and a humble mind.—1 Peter 3:8

Let Go Let God in Mind, Body, Spirit

My mind, body, and spirit act as one powerful force for good.
 
My mind thinks thoughts of fear and limitation or love and possibility; my body responds to its environment within and without; and my spirit permeates all that comprises me. My mind, body, and spirit are in constant communication with one another. If I feel discomfort in my body, I find physical comfort by mentally affirming health and vitality, and the divine in me responds. The body contains the wisdom of Spirit and by listening to its expressions, I can glean helpful information. When I am unsure of my body’s message, I breathe into the sensation and ask it what it is trying to say. With deep appreciation, I listen to my mind, body, and spirit.
If then your whole body is full of light, with no part of it in darkness, it will be as full of light as when a lamp gives you light with its rays.—Luke 11:36

Let Go Let God Forgive

I forgive and live in the joy of each day.
 
The law of mind action states: Thoughts held in mind produce after their kind. I am a creative thinker who is fully responsible for my thoughts. So while in prayer, I replace negative thoughts with positive ones. If someone has done or said something that upsets me, I take a time-out. I breathe fully but gently and, in my mind’s eye, erase anger by practicing forgiveness. This prevents my reliving the perceived wrong over and over again. What a relief! As I change my thoughts, I begin to live in the soothing moment of forgiveness. Forgiving cleanses me of all that would otherwise get in the way of me experiencing life in the now. I forgive and live in the joy of each day.

Do not judge, and you will not be judged; do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.—Luke 6:37

Let Go Let God Find Comfort

I find comfort and peace in the love of God.
 
Life has its ups and downs. Sometimes I need the comfort of a friend. Other times I play the role of comforter. Whether I am seeking solace or providing it, I know the source of strength and peace comes from within. I seek comfort and strength in God. Centering my mind and heart in prayer, I let go of any thought of challenge or doubt and simply rest in the stillness. I become aware of infinite love surrounding me and lifting my spirit. If I want to comfort a friend or loved one, my prayer is for guidance for the right words and actions. I release my concerns to the all-knowing presence of God within. I am comforted by the love of God, and this love enables me to comfort others.
Let your steadfast love become my comfort according to your promise to your servant.—Psalm 119:76

Monday, May 29, 2017

Let Go Let God in Remembrance

I pause and pay tribute to all who have acted in service to others.
 
I take time in the Silence today to honor those who have gone before me. I am comforted because I know that the spirit of God is our loving, eternal connection. My heart fills with peace as I recognize my eternal oneness with all of humanity. I am continually blessed by acts of kindness and courage that happen throughout the world. I am grateful for every commitment of faith, act of sacrifice, and deed of honor made by anyone, anywhere. In this time of remembrance, I recognize and give thanks to all who serve a higher good. Sacred service is an expression of God’s eternal good, which blesses our hearts, lives, and the world forever.
We do not live to ourselves, and we do not die to ourselves. If we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord.—Romans 14:7-8

Let Go Let God through Divine Expression

I am designed to see light and love.
 
Ralph Waldo Emerson described prayer as “the soliloquy of a beholding and jubilant soul.” Divine Spirit is always inviting me to behold the love within my heart and to celebrate it. I was born with an unlimited capacity of joy and love, so it is easy for me to live as the jubilant soul Emerson identified. When I pray, I acknowledge Truth’s expression in my being. I acknowledge the divine expression in all living things. I release any preconceived images and ideas about people and situations, and instead behold the Divine in each one. From this higher viewpoint, I see goodness in all. With a gladness of heart, I embrace my proclivity to see the Divine in me and around me.
For “In him we live and move and have our being”; as even some of your own poets have said, “For we too are his offspring.”—Acts 17:28

Let Go Let God in Safe Travel

My journey is protected by the presence of God.
 
Travelers preparing for a trip take the necessary steps to make their way safe and clear—checking maps, verifying reservations, carefully packing, and more. Whether I am vacationing or simply commuting locally, I surround my travels in the light and love of God. I take time to visualize the free and clear flow of my travel, with divine order expressing all along the way, guiding me in right decision-making. I envision that the protecting power of God makes my way clear. Everyone who travels with me is safe and at peace. Along this voyage, I strive to be a blessing to everyone I encounter and open my heart to receive the blessings of others. My journey is protected by the presence of God.

The crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways made smooth.—Luke 3:5

Friday, May 26, 2017

Let Go Let God in Faith

Faith leads me to deeper spiritual understanding.
 
Faith is the voice inside me posing questions that nudge me into new areas of growth. Do I find myself challenging old beliefs about myself or my life? How can I, as a divinely created being, ever be less than enough or limited? In Truth, I am created with divine wisdom and strength and love and beauty. Rather than making decisions based on the advice of those around me, I instead choose that which aligns with my passion and purpose in this world. Faith reminds me to seek God first and then all my worldly needs will be met abundantly through my relationship to Source. I find answers to the questions of my heart as faith leads me to deeper spiritual understanding.

I give thanks and praise, for you have given me wisdom and power, and have now revealed to me what we asked of you.—Daniel 2:23

Let Go Let God with a Children's Blessing

You are God’s beloved—healthy, safe, and secure.
 
Children are divine blessings—innocent and trusting, open to the wonders of the world around them. When I hear of a child who is lost, sick, or afraid, I immediately turn to prayer. I envision every child enfolded in a blanket of God’s soothing, protecting love. I affirm their safety, wholeness, and security wherever they may be. My prayers and positive thoughts help me focus on ways I can help children and their families. I have faith that every child in need is safe and whole, every person who cares for that child is given the tools and opportunities to ensure good outcomes. Today I pray for children everywhere: You are God’s beloved—healthy, safe, and secure.

Little children, you are from God, and have conquered them; for the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.—1 John 4:4

Let Go Let God be Open

I open my hands, my mind, and my heart to make a difference in the world.
 
A clenched fist cannot hold more, just as a closed heart misses out on all the beauty emotions can bring. I choose today to open my hands, my mind, and my heart. With open hands, I help others. I physically take positive action to make a beneficial difference in their lives as I become of service. To those in need, I lend a hand. My open mind continues a lifelong path of learning. I am in a constant state of discovery, finding new ways of being present in the world and recognizing the beauty that comes with diversity. My open heart seeks out ways to make peace where there is chaos. With kindness and in love, I treat others as I would want to be treated.
When you open your hand, they are filled with good things.—Psalm 104:28

Tuesday, May 23, 2017

Let Go Let God with Confidence

With confidence, I make choices that enrich my life.
 
When I remind myself that I have everything within me to accomplish any goal, I cannot help but feel confident. I am a child of God, created in the image and likeness of my creator. I am an image of love and perfection, with infinite wisdom to guide and strengthen me. How do I express confidence and strength? I spend time in prayer, connecting with God. In the stillness, I contemplate my divine potential. I let the power and presence of God bubble up from within, and I radiate poise and confidence. Whether interviewing for a job, taking a test, or traveling in an unfamiliar place, God-life within gives me confidence to be my best self.
 
And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.—Psalm 9:10

Let Go Let God in World Peace

I hold a vision of peace and harmony for the world.
 
Archbishop Desmond Tutu once said, “We must be ready to learn from one another, not claiming that we alone possess all truth and that somehow we have a corner on God.” I take meaningful action in support of a peaceful global consciousness, beginning with the thoughts and visions that I hold for oneness. I recognize, honor, and respect the many paths to God and the diversity of humanity. I pray for peace in myself, in my community, and in the world. I open my heart to understanding. The energy of compassion moves out and blesses humanity. I am guided by Spirit. I hold a vision of peace and harmony for the world.

When the ways of people please the Lord, he causes even their enemies to be at peace with them.—Proverbs 16:7

Let Go Let God as Divine Order

I appreciate the divine order and clarity expressing in every part of my life.
 
There is a satisfaction in feeling that my own ego mind is in control of the events in my life—today and for days to come. However, there is a deeper, richer satisfaction that I experience when I surrender to the loving Power that causes everything in the universe to flow and express in order and harmony. In that surrender I release my own limited efforts to organize my life. There is one power and I am part of it. I am an essential part of a purpose more vast than my mind can imagine. I know that my day unfolds as an expression of that purpose. I give thanks for divine order in my life. I joyously embrace and rely upon the clarity that expresses in every part of my life.
“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.—Revelation 1:8

Let Go Let God be Free

My burdens disappear when I shine the light of Spirit on them. I am free.
 
Some days worrisome thoughts or concerns may seem to be constant companions. I begin to feel lighter when I remember this simple exercise: I pause, turn within, and rest in Spirit. To be fully comfortable with my life, I may think I need to have complete control over every variable in it—family, friends, government, weather, and more. But my true freedom comes through Spirit. When I think and move and have my being through my spiritual nature, I am free. I am unlimited. I take a few deep breaths, and my concerns begin to fall away. My mind is restored to its natural, free state. My burdens disappear when I shine the light of Spirit on them.
Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.—Matthew 11:28

Let Go Let God for Guidance

God is my constant guide on my fulfilling journey through life.
 
There is a synchronicity at work in nature, such as the rise and set of the sun and the ebb and flow of tides. The consistency of these naturally guided processes brings me comfort. Similarly, I can count on the presence of God to guide me in right ways. I am inspired with ideas that make my life more meaningful, and I can move forward with these ideas, knowing that I am following a purpose-driven, divinely inspired plan. I remain aware of and grateful for divine guidance directing my way. I give thanks to God now. I give thanks that I am never alone and for the life I have been given. I look forward to experiencing many more blessings as I trust in God.

O Lord, how manifold are your works! In wisdom you have made them all; the earth is full of your creatures.—Psalm 104:24

Let Go Let God You Are Never Alone

God is my help in every need.
 
At any time I can shift my attention to peaceful thoughts by stopping and pausing to breathe. Inhaling deeply, I pray: I am never separate from God. God is my help in every need. Exhaling slowly and deliberately, I release any stress my body may be holding and relax. I then surrender any limiting perspective to God. Prayer is a divine connection that enables me to move through any challenging time. Knowing that God is always with me allows me to move forward in my life with a brighter perspective. Any dark cloud symbolically lifts and feelings of worry begin to fade, leaving my heart filled with gratitude. I feel comforted when I affirm: God is my help in every need.

I am not alone because the Father is with me.—John 16:32

Let Go, Let God

I allow the flow of Spirit to carry me.
 
In Richard Bach’s book, Illusions, he tells a story about a group of creatures who spend their lives clinging to the bottom of a river, resisting the current. One creature finally declares, “I trust that the current knows where it is going. I shall let go, and let it take me where it will.” I may find myself resisting circumstances in my life, clinging to my perceived safety nets out of fear of the unknown. When I let go and let God, I accept what appears in my life and allow the flow of Spirit to carry me. I trust that God will take me where I need to go. I release any need to control life’s conditions. I let go with ease and let divine order design my life.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.—Proverbs 3:5-6

Let Go Let God with Enthusiasm

I am enthusiastic and passionate about life!
 
Enthusiasm and passion motivate me to take action. I harness this energy to face my day with passion and eagerness. Enthusiasm propels me forward and allows me to bring excitement and zeal to everything that I do. Regardless of what my daily responsibilities look like, I feel divinely inspired and energized. I can accomplish whatever is on my to-do list. I recognize that with everything I do, I am doing so as an expression of God. Because of my spiritual nature, every action I take is sacred. I choose to move into each day from a place of enthusiasm, bringing the vital energy of God into each interaction. I am enthusiastic and passionate about life!

But be glad and rejoice forever in what I am creating; for I am about to create Jerusalem as a joy.–Isaiah 65:18

Let Go Let God as a New Chapter

Each day holds the potential for a new chapter in my life.
 
My life is like a book—an ever-unfolding story, presenting new adventures and possibilities at each turn of the page. Events and activities continue along, building upon the narrative of my life. I am the author of each chapter, writing my story according to the choices I make. When I want to change the direction of my path, I make choices that open the way to new adventures. When I feel the need for order and calm, I choose thoughts of peace and act from the place of order within me. If I am looking for new avenues of prosperity, I attune to divine ideas and affirm that I am divinely provided for. Whatever direction my personal story takes, I remember that I am the coauthor with God. With faith and gratitude, I write new chapters in the story of my life.
Write the vision; make it plain.—Habakkuk 2:2

Let Go Let God with Motherly Love

I bless all mothers in my prayers.
 
Nurturing and caring for another living being is a sacred activity. Today I take the opportunity to give thanks for all who have shared unconditional love and acceptance with me. A mother can be anyone who takes on a role of caring for a child—whether that person is a biological or adoptive parent, another relative, a teacher, or a friend. The most important aspect in being a mother is to love and care for a child unconditionally. Patience and compassion are mainstays for these expressions of love in action. Just as caring mothers hold loved ones in their arms, so, too, do I hold them in my prayers.

“Honor your father and mother”—this is the first commandment with a promise: “so that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.”—Ephesians 6:2-3

Let Go Let God as Wholeness

I am whole and well in mind and body.
 
I am more than a name, a gender, or any label that might describe me. I am a creation of God, created to express life and renewal. My divine identity emanates from the most profound depths of my being. The all-powerful spirit of God moves through me, continuing to nourish vibrant cells and replacing cells that have completed their work. I am continually being created anew. I am God’s spirit in expression as me. My mind is capable of renewal with unlimited expanses for recollecting and collecting information. In quiet times of reflection, I open my mind to Spirit and my perceptions of all people and things are enriched. Enlivened by Spirit, I am whole and well in mind and body.

So God created humankind in his image, in the image of God he created them.—Genesis 1:27

Let Go Let God Pray for Others

I live from an awareness of God’s love.
 
When friends or loved ones ask me to keep them in prayer, I feel a sense of honor and respect for this sacred activity. Regardless of their specific prayer needs, I affirm that God is the answer. God is always the answer. I pray by turning within to my awareness of God and releasing my attention on the outer world. I affirm all beings are perfect expressions of the Divine Spirit. Envisioning myself as a living vessel for the love of God, I let this love flow through me and surround those who come to me for prayer. I pray they know perfect love, perfect life, and perfect peace. When I hold others in this consciousness, the words I speak hold truth and power.

I pray that ... he may grant that you may be strengthened in your inner being with power through his Spirit.—Ephesians 3:16

Let Go Let God with Clear Vision

I recognize and respond to the sacred in all life.
 
A beautiful park beckons all to picnic and play. Yet some may be in such a hurry they don’t notice or have time to stop and take in the beauty. Life in all its forms is sacred. Taking time to clear our vision, we rise to a higher consciousness of positivity—a place where our vision is clear of the clutter of negativity. When we are ready and willing to share the joy of life and living, we clearly see the sacredness of all life. We are willing to uplift and to be uplifted. We convey love and hope in simple, unobtrusive ways, such as a gentle touch on the shoulder of a loved one or a smile to a stranger. The vision we hold is the sacredness of all life and the abundant life God created all to share. The spirit of God within will overcome all.

The Lord said to him in a vision, “Ananias.” He answered, “Here I am, Lord.”—Acts 9:10
