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

Let Go Let God All Is In Divine Order

I am poised and harmonized by the spirit of goodwill.
 
How can I affirm divine order in the midst of less-than-ideal situations? There is a great peace and serenity in accepting all is well and everything is happening for the best, regardless of current circumstances. As I relax into the truth of divine order, I step into the flow of positive outcomes. I trust that my life is being guided by the wonderful, positive force for good that is God’s presence within me. Not only is everything in my universe in perfect balance with the grace of God, I am as well. I am poised and harmonized by the spirit of goodwill, the spirit of God. I am as I am meant to be, and I am guided into greater expressions of good. I let go, trust, and open up to my new spirit-guided direction.
Great peace have those who love your law; nothing can make them stumble.—Psalm 119:165

Let Go Let God When Making Choices

My choices are divinely inspired.
 
Perhaps the most limiting thought I can have is that I have no choice in what matters to me. I can negate this false belief by reminding myself that I am complete and whole in God—a creation of spirit, mind, and body. So when I need to make choices, I do so with divine direction. Whether my choices are routine or monumental matters, I turn within for divinely inspired guidance. I choose to follow the guidance of my Creator. Choices may change. Decisions may alter. But one thing that remains unchangeable is this: With God, all things are possible. Because I am One with God, I have access to infinite good.
According to the grace of God given to me, like a skilled master builder I laid a foundation.—1 Corinthians 3:10

Let Go Let God Envision World Peace

I hold a vision of harmony and goodwill for the world.
 
I know peace begins with me, but how do I find it? What can I change in myself so I can help add to the peace in the world? Awareness, of course, is the beginning. I take stock of my primary challenges and choose how to deal with them in a way that promotes personal peace. I let go of any sense of fear that may have stifled my journey forward or caused procrastination. I remind myself that I am not alone. God and I are one. In meditation, I imagine a calm personal environment and experience a serenity that allows me to think clearly. Each step I take to attain personal peace brings me closer to seeing peace in the world. Knowing this, I hold a vision of harmony and goodwill for the world.
Let us then pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding.—Romans 14:19

Let Go Let God in this Moment

My consciousness of God grows moment by moment.
 
In her book, Younger by the Day, Victoria Moran shares, “In this moment, there is plenty of time. In this moment, you are precisely as you should be. In this moment, there is infinite possibility.” Moments seem so brief; still, they are the building blocks of life. So I concentrate on what is at hand for me to do. If this is a time of change that I have planned, then it may seem like smooth going—until someone or something alters my plans. By being conscious of God’s loving guidance and direction as I plan, I am creating building blocks for life that are strong when under pressure. Moment by moment, day by day, my consciousness of God grows.
And to the centurion Jesus said, “Go; let it be done for you according to your faith.” And the servant was healed at that hour.—Matthew 8:13

Let Go Let God with Compassion

There is only one Presence and one Power in the universe and in my life: God.
 
Today’s affirmation is one of the five basic principles of Unity. Embracing this principle defines our purpose as spiritual beings in human form. If fear-based judgments cloud my expanding awareness of spiritual Truth, I affirm this principle then remind myself of Jesus’ words: “Judge not.” Compassion is the spiritual energy that dissolves the negative effects of judgment. When I reflect on the conflicts of the world, I learn from the consequences of judging others. I appreciate the rich diversity of this mortal realm, without insisting on either superiority or conformity. By making loving choices in my life, I honor and recognize my oneness with all beings.
Beloved, let us love one another, because love is from God; everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.—1 John 4:7

Let Go Let God Relax

I relax as I experience God’s perfect peace.
 
Rest and renewal are a necessity, not a luxury. No matter how full my schedule, I make rest a priority. Each day, I carve out time for physical and spiritual renewal. It makes all the difference in whether I feel God’s peace throughout my day! I trust that life never gives me more than I can handle. Relaxing into this truth, I breathe deep and release any tension I might be holding in my body. Likewise, I relinquish any mental activities that are stressing my mind. Letting go of any concern about the past or the future, I rest fully in the present moment. Right here and now, I rest in God’s perfect peace. I am replenished and renewed in knowing that I share in God’s infinite bounty in each moment of my life.
Return, my soul, to your rest, for the Lord has dealt bountifully with you.—Psalm 116:7

Let Go Let God Accept Diversity

I honor all people as part of God’s love and beauty expressed.
 
Together with my human family, I create a world tapestry of interwoven diversity. Each person is a thread, wonderfully unique in appearance and actions. Individuality and freewill dictate the necessity for diverse expression. I honor all people as part of God’s love and beauty expressed. In times of spiritual contemplation, I remember that the one power and presence of God expresses through all things. My Source is the Source of all life, which expresses in myriad ways. As if woven on a great loom, I envision each unique life expression being woven together in love and harmony. I celebrate the resulting tapestry of diversity.
 
Lead a life worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love.—Ephesians 4:1-2

Let Go Let God Meditate

I am peaceful, calm, and relaxed.
 
Meditation is an ancient practice by numerous cultures throughout the world. This simple practice provides a time of quiet reflection where I am one with God and open to inspiration. As I turn my attention inward to the sacred space of the Silence, I tune out my surroundings and focus on my breathing. With each unhurried breath in and out, my heart rate steadies, my oxygen level rises. I am filled with peace to carry me throughout the day. As I make meditation a habitual part of my daily routine, I look forward to that time. I know that these moments will benefit me physically, mentally, and spiritually. I will emerge from them feeling refreshed and renewed, ready to face the day.
I commune with my heart in the night; I meditate and search my spirit.—Psalm 77:6

Let Go Let God Provide Healing

The life of God flows through me as renewing energy.
 
The breath of God gives me life, making me a living, breathing expression of Spirit. Life is energy, and should I experience a health challenge, I find peace in knowing that I am created in wholeness. Healing is a process while wholeness is my true nature of health and well-being. Each day, I speak to my body, affirming: The life of God flows through me as renewing energy. My body responds with vibrance and strength. My mind stays calm and relaxed. From head to toe, I am aglow with radiant health. I am a child of the Divine, and as such I can never be away from the flow of healing energy. I give thanks for my heartbeat, for my breath, and for every cell in my body.
Then the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and the man became a living being.—Genesis 2:7

Let Go Let God in the Silence

I enrich my awareness of God in the Silence.
 
The tiny hummingbird works quietly but with purpose, darting from flower to flower, gathering nectar for its own nourishment, and pollinating flowers as it goes. When the atmosphere is still and the hummingbird close, the gentle hum from its fast-beating wings can be heard. I experience a gentleness and purpose when I take time to be aware of the Creator of all life. I embrace the Silence and concentrate on the still, small voice within me. Nearer than my breath, Spirit nourishes me. I receive as I linger in quiet reflection of who I am: a creation of the Creator. Wherever I am at the moment of embracing the presence of God, I am in a holy space.
Then the Lord said to him, “Take off the sandals from your feet, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.”—Acts 7:33
