Let Go Let God Contribute to World Peace

I act with reverence for all and contribute peace to the world.
There is truth to the adage “peace begins with me.” Rather than waiting for the conditions of the world to shift, I allow peace to express through me right now. I let go of what I see in the world around me and find my inner spirit of harmony. I radiate this goodwill outward—into my world and beyond. I visualize myself as a source of infinite peace, allowing it to influence my tone of voice, my facial expressions, my choice of words. In every encounter with others, I put on this spirit of peace and imagine how my calming presence affects them, bringing them stillness. In this way, I am doing my part in creating harmony in the world. My peaceful heart and gentle presence work through all I do, establishing more peace on earth.

The Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace.—Numbers 6:26

Let Go, Let God

I let the indwelling Spirit guide my steps.
Spirit’s eternal and internal wisdom guides me in where to go, what to do, what to say, and to whom. When I heed this still, small voice, my relationship to Spirit grows stronger and the voice of Spirit grows clearer. There may be times when those closest to me—friends, coworkers, or family—may disagree or disapprove of my decisions. When this happens, I remember to let go of the need for others’ approval or agreement. I let go of the need to explain or justify my behavior to those who might feel threatened in their belief system because of my choices. As I live my life with increasing authenticity and integrity, I feel greater peace and well-being. With faith and conviction, I let God, rather than other people, direct my way.
Our steps are made firm by the Lord, when he delights in our way.—Psalm 37:23

Let Go Let God as One Presence

I am one with God, open and receptive to divine love, light, wisdom, and life.
The presence and power of God is always with me, available to me in all situations. How empowering it feels to know that the same creative force responsible for extensive galaxies and brilliant sunrises is also a part of who I am! The more I cooperate by consciously acknowledging and allowing Spirit to work in and through me, the better things are in my life. God is the One Presence. If I feel opposed, separate, or influenced negatively, it is because I have distanced or blocked myself from this goodness. If I feel separation, it is up to me to reopen my mind, heart, and life to the flow of good that is always seeking me. I affirm: I am one with God, open and receptive to divine love, light, wisdom, and life.

One God and Father of all, who is above all and through all and in all.—Ephesians 4:6

Let Go Let God be Comforted

I find comfort in the eternal love of God.
During times of loss and challenge, I find solace in the enduring love of the Divine. I reflect upon the centuries of people who have turned to this powerful energy we name God, Yahweh, Spirit, and Allah. No matter how much the world may change or advances made in science and technology, God is eternally available for our needs. Perspectives may change, yet the Divine remains as unwavering love. Every language and every era reveals God is love surrounding us. In my hour of darkness, I am enfolded in the same love that comforted Jesus when he was troubled. I enter into a time of prayer and relax into the embrace of the Creator. Welcomed home with love, I return to the place in my heart where comfort abides.

O give thanks to the God of heaven, for his steadfast love endures forever.—Psalm 136:26

Let Go Let God be Unique

I am an individual expression of the Divine.
Moments spent in nature are opportunities to appreciate this divinely created world. My attention is often drawn to the beauty and vast diversity and unity around me. Fully immersed in the world of the outdoors, my heart fills with gratitude for the sights and sounds of the natural world. If all birds sang the same tune or if flowers bloomed in just one color and with the same scent, the world would not be as bright and colorful. I am a child of God, patterned after the Divine. Like those songbirds and flowers, I am unique. Even though I share the same spiritual qualities as others, I am an individual expression of the Divine. I embrace all that I am and do and extend my own uniqueness out into the world. I am created for a purpose that I am guided toward fulfilling.
For we are what he has made us.—Ephesians 2:10

Let Go Let God be Sheltered

I am sheltered in divine love.
Emmet Fox wrote, “There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer; no disease that love will not heal; no door that enough love will not open ... A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all. If only you could love enough you would be the happiest and most powerful being in the world.” Divine love and energy protect me in so many ways. When I think thoughts of God, my faith quickly dispels any worry or doubt, thus protecting me from my own negative thinking. As I feel the fullness of Spirit, I grow in faith and confidence. I can and do live each day with self-assurance and serenity. Sheltered in the tender care of Spirit and basking in the glow of divine light, I am at peace. I am one with the strength and protection of Spirit.
I fear no evil; for you are with me; your rod and your staff—they comfort me.—Psalm 23:4

Let Go Let God with a Cheerful Heart

I choose the lighter, brighter way.
The “Peace Prayer” attributed to St. Francis presents a series of dualistic couplets: “... Where there is hatred, let me sow love. Where there is injury, pardon ... ” and on. The prayer uses opposing principles to illustrate guiding truths. I have the power to choose cheerfulness instead of gloom, so I choose the attitude that reflects Spirit within. I can be the bright smiling one, the warm hugger, or the friendly greeter. When I share my cheerful heart with the world, I act as a change agent for good. I carry the force that turns the tide for the better and brightens others’ life experience. My light-hearted outlook fills the world around me with greater joy. I choose the lighter, brighter way.

A cheerful heart is a good medicine, but a downcast spirit dries up the bones.—Proverbs 17:22

Let Go Let God as Patience

Aligned with God Mind, I embody infinite patience.
If I have an important event or meeting on my schedule, I may feel anxious or concerned. When these feelings arise, I acknowledge them and then remind myself that nothing can delay or obstruct the perfect unfoldment of my life. Taking a deep breath, I pause to pray. In prayer, I acknowledge that I live and move and have my being within the infinite mind of God. As I become conscious of my oneness with Divine Mind, I readily release any fears about the future and become fully present and focused on the now. With renewed hope and gratitude, I remember there is a divine order underlying all life. Regardless of outer appearances, every person and event is conspiring toward my highest good.
Rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering, persevere in prayer.—Romans 12:12

Let Go Let God for Guidance

I walk a path of divine light and wisdom.
My life’s journey is never made alone, for I am one with God wherever I am and in all my interactions with others. Everywhere I go and in everything I do, I do so in the light of God. My divine connection opens me to new ideas and experiences. My role is to be aware of and receptive to them. Rather than waking up still carrying concerns from the previous day, I choose to awaken with a peaceful heart, expecting blessings to come my way. I see divinity in the smile of a stranger and the leaves on the trees. I feel it in the warmth of the sun, the touch of a loved one’s hand. I experience it in the appreciation of a friend and in the assurance that God is with me. One with God, I walk a path of light and wisdom.
Rise up, walk through the length and the breadth of the land, for I will give it to you.—Genesis 13:17

Let Go Let God Connect with Communication

I listen to others with love and respect.
Communicating effectively is a skill that I can hone. I do when I remember that I share the same divine intelligence within me as the person I am addressing. Asking myself, What does this soul need? leads me to what to say and how to say it. In this way, I am touching infinite wisdom and my every word is divinely guided. When Jesus told the disciples that the Spirit would speak through them in times of difficulty, he was illustrating the important truth that no one is separate from Divine Intelligence. We are all connected with the deepest needs of each other’s souls. As I affirm my inner link with my own wise heart, I receive exactly the guidance I need to connect with each soul in my world.

For it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.—Matthew 10:20

Let Go Let God with Faith

I say “yes” to the call of Spirit.
When having to make quick decisions with little time to prepare or research, faith reminds me where my intentions belong. My inner faith gives me a gentle nudge to turn within, and to be still and know. The flow of Spirit is ever-present and in this new moment I say “yes” to the call of Spirit in all areas of my life. I recognize and realize that the power of God in me brings forth my heart’s desire. Aligning my faith with my daily actions keeps me centered and solid on my path moving forward. Even when I do not know how things will work out, I affirm: Nothing is impossible with God! As I continue my life’s journey, one step at a time, my way is illumined before me. I say “yes” to the call of Spirit.

For nothing will be impossible with God.—Luke 1:37

Let Go Let God through Healing

Divine life restores my body to its natural state of wholeness.
Anytime I feel less than well, I pause, become still, and quiet my mind. In prayer, I remember that I am God’s beloved child. I know deep within me that my true state of being is health and wholeness. Silently I affirm: Divine life restores my body to its natural state of wholeness. I relax further as divine life energy blesses every cell of my body. As I remember the truth of my divine inheritance, a spiritual pattern of perfection acts upon my body to restore it to its natural state of wholeness. Every cell and every tissue is invigorated, renewed, and restored. I am energized by the divine life of God. I affirm wholeness and love throughout my body, and my innate wellness is revealed. Divine life and energy radiate through me now.

For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light.—Psalm 36:9

Let Go Let God on this World Day of Prayer

I AM peace.
How do I contribute to peace in world conflicts? With Divine Intelligence, I am reminded to be the presence of peace. As Desmond Tutu once stated, “Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.” When my thoughts, words, and actions are in harmony, I naturally project my internal peace to the outer world. Prayer by prayer, thought by thought, action by action, I raise my consciousness to be peace. My words heal and harmonize, uplift and appreciate. Boldly, I walk a path of peace guided by inner wisdom. All that I do fosters mutual blessings. Because I AM peace, I reflect the presence of peace in the midst of every circumstance.

Those of steadfast mind you keep in peace—in peace because they trust in you.—Isaiah 26:3

Let Go Let God be Free

I am happy, whole, and free!
Ernest Holmes wrote, “Spirit is happy, whole, free, filled with joy, eternal in its existence ... All your highest hopes and dreams have come from it.” These words are reminders that I experience spiritual freedom when I consciously center my heart in God and direct my life, founded on spiritual principle. If I were to live my life based on what others think and say, I sacrifice my own freedom and may experience limitation. Yet when I align my mind and heart with Spirit, I begin to experience spiritual freedom. Prayer, meditation, and communion with God are tools I can use to connect to Christ Consciousness. When I seek God in mind and heart, I develop a sense of well-being that cannot be destroyed by any external force. I am free!
So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed.—John 8:36

Let Go Let God with Energy

I am sustained and motivated by divine energy.
I can care for myself holistically—in body, mind, and spirit. I rely on the essence of God within me, the Christ Spirit, as my source of life, wisdom, and guidance. I seek balance as I give attention to the different aspects of my life. I use my energy wisely. My nourishment comes both from healthy food choices and from spiritual nutrition in the form of inspiration and intuition. I exercise my body daily and enjoy the benefits of increased strength and stamina. I stimulate my mind through attention to ongoing learning and exploration. I live as a spiritual being—with intention and purpose. I am motivated to use my energy to create a meaningful life for myself and in support of people I love and causes I believe in.
I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.–John 10:10

Let Go Let God Forgive

In practicing forgiveness, I open the way for love to flow.
When a river’s path is blocked with debris, the force of the water eventually removes its own obstruction. Like that river, my energy flows easily and effortlessly until I come upon a situation that causes mental or emotional blockage. So I pause to consider the situation. I observe my life and energy now as if I were sitting beside a river. Where is it flowing and ebbing, and how does each condition feel? Often a hindrance can be removed by forgiveness and love. Is there an opportunity in this moment to forgive? To love? I identify where a shift can happen and speak heartfelt words of release. I feel the mental debris moving away. In practicing forgiveness, I open the way for love to flow.

If we love one another, God lives in us, and his love is perfected in us.—1 John 4:12

Let Go Let God as Joy

I express the spiritual gift of joy.
Happiness can come into my life from the world around me. People, places, events, opportunities—these things and many more make me happy. And that’s a good thing! Yet joy is different. Such a small word with a sometimes complicated explanation. It’s an essential part of who I AM—a spiritual quality that remains unaffected by the corporeal realm. In challenging moments, joy lingers, helping soothe my soul. Like all the spiritual qualities that define my Christ Presence, I feel it most powerfully when I freely share it with others. When I connect with the eternal substance of joy, I find the strength of Spirit to face external events or situations.
Then he said to them, “... This day is holy to our Lord; and do not be grieved, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”—Nehemiah 8:10

Let Go Let God Provide Inner Peace

I relax in the peace of Spirit.
I may find myself becoming anxious about something I saw or heard in the news, or maybe I have engaged in another person’s personal drama. Breathe, I remind myself, Spirit is in charge. This simple focus relaxes me and provides a moment for me to balance my thoughts. This is a choice point for me. In the intimacy of prayer, I let go of any negativity and immerse myself in the indwelling peace within my own consciousness. As my awareness of my own divine essence increases, my burdens lift. Anxiety disappears. Peace prevails. A gentle peace fills every part of my being. I relax in the quiet of Spirit. I am inspired, directed, encouraged, and restored. I know what to do, and when to do it.

Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times in all ways.—2 Thessalonians 3:16

Let Go Let God with a Gentle Nature

I am compassionate and gentle in spirit.
Throughout modern history, there have been many influential people renowned for their gentle nature—Mother Teresa, Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, to name just a few. Their approach to others was one of dignity and respect in a compassionate, caring manner. I, too, have the capacity to be this way. I can be gentle with family when doing every task. I am kind to myself as I take care of my body. I can be calm in the pace of everyday life, taking time to be the face and voice of compassion. I can develop a gentle nature in my interactions with others and the world around me. By being gentle with myself and others, I do my part in creating a more caring and compassionate world.
May my teaching drop like the rain, my speech condense like the dew; like gentle rain on grass, like showers on new growth.—Deuteronomy 32:2

Let Go Let God all is in Divine Order

I am aligned with Spirit. All is in divine order.
When I am concerned about an outcome, I affirm: divine order. These words in and of themselves will not change anything, but when I say them, I am realigning myself with God-life within. I speak the words aloud or quietly and my mind, heart, and soul hear them and respond. Doing so I spark an eternal connection with divinity and to the order of the universe. I let go of my sense of what should happen to allow a divine outcome. I move forward with a sense of peace and confidence that all is well. With a sense of newness, I go about my day, seeing the good around me and the potential for order in all things. I affirm divine order, knowing that whatever seeming challenge appears before me will be resolved, and I will find the blessing it holds.

It is true. Hear, and know it for yourself.—Job 5:27

Let Go Let God Through Change

I view every moment as an opportunity for change and transformation.
In Meditation, A Way of Life, Julien Bouchard writes, “Nothing is stable, nothing is static, everything is moving, everything is transforming and from one moment to another we are the spectators of our world’s renewal, of a new universe.” Rather than considering change as a fear of the unknown, I consider it an opportunity to transform the way that I think, feel, and act. I shift into new ways of being by shifting my perceptions, attitudes, and beliefs about myself and my world. Thought by thought I can change my outlook and my attitude, regardless of what is happening in my life or around me. I always have the power to change. Every moment is an opportunity for transformation.

Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me.—Psalm 51:10

Let Go Let God Appreciate Blessings Received

I am blessed beyond measure.
Rather than wait for a specific holiday to express gratitude, I pause throughout my day to reflect with deep appreciation on the blessings I receive. A beautiful sunrise is a reminder that the essence of God-life within also surrounds me, and I know that I am blessed. I share my gifts in the company of others and know that I am blessed. I connect and laugh with friends, smile at strangers, lend a hand when needed. With every breath I nourish my body temple with healthy food and positive thoughts. I know that I am blessed. Aware of the gifts I have received, I anticipate the abundant good that continues to flow, day after day. I am blessed beyond measure with God’s abundance.
You bestow on him blessings forever; you make him glad with the joy of your presence.—Psalm 21:6

Let Go Let God Relax

I care for my mind and body by taking time to relax.
Life can hold both internal and external demands at times. Rather than relaxing, my brain may be in a striving mentality—urging me to go full speed ahead toward accomplishing everything on my to-do list. Relaxation is important to my physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. So I empty myself of stress and fill myself with peace. I engage in relaxing activities such as going for a walk in nature, listening to soothing music, or coloring in a page of an adult coloring book. I feel bathed in a calm, restorative energy. My thoughts focus on the peacefulness of the present moment. My body responds by releasing physical tension. I care for my mind and body by taking time to relax.

Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, or about your body, what you will wear.—Matthew 6:25

Let Go Let God in Life

Today I embrace the fullness and abundance of life.
My spiritual path is not one of sacrifice and lack. I release any belief that I came into this human experience as punishment—this thought is inconsistent with Jesus’ teachings. Jesus invites us to “have life, and have it abundantly” (John 10:10) and reminds us that there is spiritual good in even the most challenging of conditions. What is mine to do is to allow that spiritual life to express in every choice I make, every chance I take. There is no “future” in Spirit, and I AM a Being of Spirit. There is one Presence and Power in the universe, and I am blessed to be imbued with that divine essence. Today I embrace my life fully and give thanks for the love in which I experience it all.
Those who desire life and desire to see good days ... let them turn away from evil and do good; let them seek peace and pursue it.—1 Peter 3:10, 11

Let Go Let Go Bless All Creatures

I give thanks for the diversity of all God’s creatures.
Animals are a vital, living part of the ecosystem. When I consider the thousands of species that inhabit the world, I am both amazed and grateful. I can learn a great deal about the animal kingdom as I watch how they interact. A mother bird instinctively builds a nest to protect her young. Elephants comfort one another when a member of the herd passes. I share in the joy of watching dogs wag their tails in excitement. I, too, am one of God’s creations, and as such, I recognize the Divine in all living beings. As a member of this ecosystem, I have an obligation to do my part in protecting my animal friends through awareness and support.
And God said, “Let the earth bring forth living creatures of every kind: cattle and creeping things and wild animals of the earth of every kind.”—Genesis 1:24

Friday, September 1, 2017

Let Go Let God Today

What I do today brings blessings to me and to the world.
I cannot change yesterday, but I can take charge of today. Right here, right now, I have the ability and the passion for setting a new course in any area of my life. I do not look back on successes or failures of the past. I choose instead to live in the now. I create my day—moment by moment—with each decision, thought, prayer, and action I take. As I do, I am already creating my tomorrow. What I begin today is a cause that will have a future effect. I move forward each day, confident that I have the resources and ability to express divine life, love, and wisdom. I listen and follow my guidance as I create my day. All that I do brings blessings to me and to the world, one day at a time, starting now.
This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.—Psalm 118:24

Let Go Let God as Willingness

A willingness to try new things brings freshness to my life.
There is great wisdom in the conventional saying, “You won’t know unless you try.” Countless opportunities appear in a lifetime, but without willingness to try new things, those experiences will be left undiscovered. When I stretch myself to try something new, I discover adventures, communities, foods, or interests I wouldn’t have ever known. Deep joy may result from my willing action to do something unfamiliar. Even if I decide that what I’ve tried is not for me, I gain experience and knowledge in the process of expanding beyond my usual activities. Today I purposely choose to do something new. With a willing heart and an open mind, I experience the freshness of life.
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 with Relationships

I am the hands, feet, eyes, and voice of God.
Love has been called the glue that holds the world together. So I strive to develop relationships that both feed my soul and bless others. I give thanks for friendships and family members and endeavor to treat all people with respect. I act toward others in the way I want to be dealt with. If I feel I have been treated with less respect than I deserve, I take the high road. I put myself in the other person’s place and respond with compassion and forgiveness. Communication is key to building and maintaining relationships. I take part in the exchange of ideas, encourage dialogue, and inspire growth. My kind, considerate words and actions help create an environment of peace. I am the hands, feet, eyes, and voice of God.
I give you a new commandment, that you love one another.—John 13:34

Tuesday, August 29, 2017

Let Go Let God With Faith

In the presence of faith, all fear vanishes.
Whenever we begin something new—starting a job, going back to school, moving to a different location—we may find ourselves both excited and anxious. During these times, we strengthen our faith by recalling the Truth: Spirit is with us wherever we go. We have faith that divine order is clearing the way for a smooth change, that connections will be made, and friendships formed. We are assured of success in all endeavors as we remember and live from the Truth that we are one with the Mind of God. Our anxieties dissipate, our fears replaced with excitement, and we move forward with confidence. Success and fulfillment are mine to claim. In the presence of faith, all fear vanishes.

Forgetting what lies behind … I press on toward the goal for the prize of the heavenly call of God in Christ Jesus.—Philippians 3:13, 14

Let Go Let God Dream

I hold a vision of equality for all people.
Martin Luther King Jr. stated he had a dream that America would one day live up to its ideal that all people are created equal. We are all created in the image and likeness of God. Every person has equal potential to express his or her divinity. To manifest the belief in equality for all people, I practice it in my interactions with others. I embody and express equality in my words and actions. Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream that one day his children would be judged not by outer appearances and the color of their skin, but “by the content of their character.” I can help to realize this dream by treating others in my life this way. I envision equality for all and express this truth in my life.
The Lord is the maker of them all.—Proverbs 22:2

Let Go Let God Be Prosperous

I open my mind to divine ideas, and new avenues of supply are revealed.
As I am paying bills, I may feel frustrated with my debt-to-income ratio. I pray for abundance and repeat affirmations. Why, then, does it seem as though the creative laws of abundance aren’t working for me? I am approaching prosperity from a belief in lack. My focus is on my perceived needs. Since what I focus on increases in my life, what I am doing is creating more needs—the opposite of my conscious intention. So I shift my focus to Spirit within. I learn to appreciate the ways in which prosperity is already present in my life. I open my mind to divine ideas, which immediately guide me to resources and channels. Prosperity comes to me in new and wonderful ways.
I the Lord test the mind and search the heart, to give to all according to their ways, according to the fruit of their doings.—Jeremiah 17:10

Let God Let God Be Free

Through the power of the indwelling Christ Presence, I am free and unlimited.
Just as a hot air balloon cannot soar when tied to the ground, so, too, challenges in my life may tie me down and keep me from rising to the highest heights of awareness. If negativity appears, I turn to the Christ Presence within. My thoughts create my experience of life, so I review any negative beliefs I am holding. I transform those beliefs into ones that are positive and productive. Through the power of choice and freewill, I let go and affirm: I am free and unlimited . I begin to feel a sense of liberation. There are no chains that bind me when I turn to the indwelling Christ Presence. As I let go of mental blocks, my spirit is free to soar like a colorful balloon in flight.
Be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect.—Romans 12:2

Friday, August 25, 2017

Let Go Let God Celebrate

I recognize and celebrate my spiritual growth.
I am an active participant in life’s unfolding. Even the smallest moments are worthy of celebration because I am reflecting God in all that I think, say, and do. As I express reverence and appreciation for what might seem like minor triumphs, I empower more of what I want, rather than what I do not want. I celebrate my spiritual growth, rejoicing in the times I took the high road in a conflict, the moments I chose love over a compulsion to be seen as right. Perhaps I choose to applaud the time I asked for needed help—and actually received it. Or I might elect to honor the moment I mustered the courage to speak my truth. I recognize and celebrate my accomplishments and my spiritual growth.
You shall celebrate with all the bounty that the Lord your God has given to you.—Deuteronomy 26:11

Thursday, August 24, 2017

Let Go Let God Be Comforted

God is my comfort.
If I desire freedom from anxiety and worry, I need to take a break from any tendency to ponder “what could go wrong” scenarios. Clearing my mind, I turn within to my one true source of all comfort and overcoming. I relax into the shelter of Divine Presence. Any frazzled nerves are soothed. Anxiety from what seems lost or unavailable to me dissipates. Nothing can interfere with the assurance from my Creator that the unknown cannot disturb the peace of my soul. I receive the enrichment that strengthens me to the very core of my being. I am prepared to live wholly today and each new day. The presence of God is within me and everywhere present to comfort me.
O God, you are my God, I seek you, my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.—Psalm 63:1

Let Go Let God Provide Guidance

Open to divine direction, I am gently guided to my good.
Life’s lessons may not always be easy to learn, but life does not have to be difficult. I do not need to suffer to find my way forward. I have compassion for myself. In my quiet time of prayer I am reminded, “I am the beloved child; the treasured creation of the Divine.” The Universe supports me. I release any perceived need to do it all myself. I am not alone. I open my mind and my heart to the inspiration of divine direction. I am free to choose again and again, correcting my course with each new thought and the lessons of each new day. I respond to the nudge of Spirit that comes in a passage in a book or the words of a song. Open to divine direction, I am gently guided to my good.

Let your good spirit lead me on a level path.—Psalm 143:10

Let Go Let God Be of Service

I am a channel of God’s blessings.
Many people follow a call to serve humanity, finding fulfillment in teaching or working in ways to better the lives of others. I, too, can be of service, right where I am. I may choose to help a neighbor or participate in a program at a nearby school. I can imagine myself assisting in my place of worship or the local animal shelter. Once the ideas start to flow, I may have so many it’s difficult to decide on just one. So I set my goal based on this thought: My desire is to contribute joy into the lives of others and to my heart. Being of service is itself a reward. I step up to take my place as a channel for divine blessings—wherever I am and in whatever capacity I am able to serve.
Serve one another with whatever gift each of you has received.—1 Peter 4:10

Let Go Let God with Inner Peace

Peace dwells in the silence of my soul.
I am a creature of peace. My soul naturally gravitates toward peaceful people, places, and experiences. Peace is my very nature. There are sounds and images that instill a sense of harmony in my heart. A babbling stream, a breeze rustling the leaves of trees, the crackling of a fire, or the soft shimmering light of a candle bring comfort. These outer phenomena calm my mind and spirit and help me get in touch with internal peace. Whenever I need serenity and quietude, I call upon one of these sensory experiences to move me into the realization of who I am. I spend quiet time in the secret place of the Most High, reflecting and listening. Peace dwells in the silence of my soul.

And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.—Philippians 4:7

Let Go Let God My Source

I am never away from Spirit as I move through this life experience.
How often do we put a label on ourselves or others? We should never define or limit ourselves by the many roles we are called upon to play as we move through our human lives. There is no end to the infinite power of creation expressing through us. Our spiritual Source will never declare us to be complete. We are one through all eternity, always creating, always bringing more of our divinity into realization. We are never apart because we are one with Source—both individually and collectively. When we turn our thoughts to God and live as expressions of love, we extend the power of Spirit through every challenge we face and every choice we make.
Now the Son of Man has been glorified, and God has been glorified in him.—John 13:31

Let Go Let God as Joy

In joy, I experience all that life has to offer.
Like a bottomless well that never runs dry, a reservoir of happiness and peace lies deep within me. Joy does not depend on circumstances, so I can tap into this wellspring even when outer conditions in my life are causing me pain or suffering. True gladness is of the spirit and resonates through my life because I am divinely created with unlimited potential and possibilities. I am faith-filled and positive as I align my mind and heart with God. When I feel this joy, I feel strong and capable of handling any situation. The strength of God within me brings peace of mind and contentment, and nothing in the outer world can change that. In joy, I experience all that life has to offer.
Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.—Matthew 18:3

Let Go Let God Forgive

We are all worthy of forgiveness.
Jesus spoke of forgiveness throughout his ministry, and he demonstrated forgiveness time and time again. Why was this lesson often focused on? Perhaps because forgiveness is one of the most loving things we can do for ourselves and others; it is a way to honor one another as spiritual beings. Jesus forgave those who persecuted him and those who committed perceived sins or crimes out of his undying love for all people. He saw everyone as children of God and worthy of forgiveness. As I take this lesson to heart and open myself to the love of God, I understand the value of forgiveness. By letting go and forgiving another, I am freer and happier. I choose to live in a spirit of love as Jesus demonstrated.
Forgive each other; just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.—Colossians 3:13

Let Go Let God Concentrate

I focus my attention on God, and good manifests in my life.
If I am concerned about a situation, the best thing I can do is to not focus on the problem but to focus on the solution instead. God is always the answer and the solution to all problems. With my attention wholly on the Divine presence within, there is no room for fearful thinking. I lead a Spirit-driven life, able to discern whatever next steps I need to take and confident of the direction I am going. Grounded and centered on the peace that comes from within, I deepen my breathing. I feel my sacred connection. Supported, loved, and guided, I affirm: God is the answer. I open my mind and heart, and answers come to me and through me.
Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets; I have come not to abolish but to fulfill.—Matthew 5:17

Let Go Let God Pray for Others

I pray knowing that Spirit is fully present in every challenge.
Friends may involve me in a conflict or complaint. I share care and concern by listening, yet I am mindful not to aggravate the problem by adding to the negative energy. I know that the most caring thing I can do for another person is to affirm, through prayer, that the Christ Light abides not only in them but in all people involved. Omniscient, omnipresent Spirit is already active amidst my friend’s challenge, divinely guiding everyone involved, including myself. As I center myself in this Truth, I become peaceful about the entire situation. I gain clarity about what, if any, compassionate words or actions are mine to take in this circumstance to serve God’s greater good.
We, for our part, will devote ourselves to prayer and to serving the word.—Acts 6:4

Let Go Let God Find Purpose

Guided by Spirit, I live on purpose.
A child may apologize for some error by saying, “I didn’t do it on purpose.” There is a simple wisdom in that apology. When my thoughts stray from my spiritual purpose, I find myself creating frustration, pain, and strife. My purpose is to be Spirit expressing. I am here to use my God-given gifts to be a beneficial presence on earth. If I am caught up in the busyness of the day, my actions, words, and thoughts may not seem purpose-driven. When I notice this, I stop to take a breath right where I am. Centering my mind and heart, I move back to my purpose. I forgive myself and others. I make amends as needed. My desire for each day is to live on purpose, guided by Spirit.
But he said to them, “I must proclaim the good news of the kingdom of God to the other cities also; for I was sent for this purpose.”—Luke 4:43

Let Go, Let God

I let go and let my next steps be revealed by Spirit.
Are there times when I have held on to a limited vision of what I think a perfect solution should be? Perhaps I dwell in a pattern of worry or am afraid to loosen control. Letting go and letting God does not mean I will not be involved. Rather, it means I am open to divine ideas beyond my current perspective. It means I can ease my mind and let my next steps be revealed through my Higher Self. It is realizing there is an entire ocean of possibility beyond the small cove I can see through my mind’s window. I gently hold my heartfelt intention in mind and pray for this or some greater plan to be revealed. I stay faith-filled, knowing my prayers are answered in the right time and perfect way. God’s will for me is only good.
Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established.—Proverbs 16:3

Let Go Let God through Awareness

I am aware of God’s presence in everything I do and everyone I meet.
A first step in realizing our spiritual purpose is to become aware of the one Presence and one Power—God, the omnipotent—that defines the essence of everything. We see Divine Presence in great spiritual teachers, beautiful sunsets, or in the eyes of children. Before we were awakened to Spirit, there were experiences that spoke to us of a power far greater than the limits of this mortal realm. Our spiritual path is always moving us forward. Awake and aware, we find our lives filled with opportunities to accomplish our spiritual purpose. Choice by choice, we bring into awareness a dimension of consciousness that Jesus describes as the kingdom of heaven.
Be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to clothe yourselves with the new self, created according to the likeness of God.—Ephesians 4:23-24

Let Go Let God Give Thanks

Giving thanks in advance opens the way for me to receive.
If someone hands me a gift, I thank them before opening it. In the same way, I give thanks to Spirit in advance of blessings received. Gratitude aligns me with God’s good, increases my capacity to receive, and enables me to relax and know my needs are being met. I turn to God in prayer. Spirit works through me to do what is before me to do. Although I may be unaware of the outcome, I rest in the knowledge that my highest and best awaits. When I cannot see the path, my way will still reveal itself. I listen to and follow divine guidance, knowing I do not face any challenge alone. Spirit within me is my unfailing help, and I am lifted up. With gratitude and confidence, I meet this day with a light heart and a willing spirit.
O Lord my God, I will give thanks to you forever.—Psalm 30:12

Let Go Let God with Creative Energy

Divine energy finds creative expression through me.
The energy of God is the fuel that excites me into action and empowers me to live boldly and with purpose. This energy finds expression through me as zeal and enthusiasm. My inflow of divine blessings surges forth as an outflow of creativity. Energy keeps me mentally focused—able to accomplish and reach my goals. Anything I wish to achieve, from a small household chore to a lifelong dream, I can accomplish because the energy of God is working through me. My creativity is intrinsic to me, and I can draw upon it at any time. When I trust the energy within, I find strength to take action toward my goals. Divine energy finds creative expression through me.
I can do all things through him who strengthens me.—Philippians 4:13
