Let Go, Let God Open the Door

I confidently open the door to my good.

A door can be a symbol either of freedom or of bondage, depending upon my viewpoint. Some closed doors are opened with the turn of a door knob others must be opened with a key, while others require only a push.
When a door appears closed, some action on my part may be necessary. Faith may be needed to turn the knob; prayer may be the key to unlock the door; willingness and persistence may supply the push to open it.
A door is a meaningful symbol, for it represents both leaving and entering. Some doors lead away from a phase of my life that is complete. Through others I enter a new phase or untried path. Today I confidently open the door to my good.

Look, I have set before you an open door, which no one is able to shut.--Revelation 3:8

Let Go, Let God Make Me an Artisan

I am the artisan of my own life.

When God asked Moses to build the tabernacle, Moses was reassured that the people called to construct the building and its furnishings would be gifted with wisdom, understanding and knowledge. Most importantly, they would be filled with the Spirit of God.
God has blessed me with the talent to create and accomplish whatever I set my mind and heart to accomplish. If I am not happy with my current experiences, I become the artisan of my own life.
Remembering to honor my true essence, I reconnect with my indwelling gifts. I am a powerhouse of divine creative energy, leading to the fulfillment of my dreams. God has filled me with the Spirit.

I have put wisdom in the hearts of all who are gifted artisans.--Exodus 31:6 (NKJV)

Let Go, Let God Comfort Me

I am in the presence of pure being. I am not alone.

I am not alone. I hold this thought in mind and feel comforted. The evidence of love begins to show. A ray of sunshine strikes a crystal and the rainbow of colors dances on my wall. A tiny bird comes near to sing its song just for me. In books and music, through the gentle touch and kindness of others, God speaks to me of love. What reassurance comes when I take time to listen for and experience that still small voice of God.
In the quiet place within my heart, I feel God's loving presence. No burden is mine to carry alone. With each breath I draw upon the infinite strength and peace of the Divine. I gently release any sorrow or worry weighing me down. Enfolded in the embrace of sweet Spirit I know that I am not alone.

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

Let Go, Let God with Gratitude

I am grateful for everyone and everything.

As I awake, I take a deep, body-filling breath in and out. With each breath, I express love and gratitude for the new day and the many opportunities that await me. Gratitude and praise open the way for greater joy and richer life experiences.
Appreciation fills me with vitality and enthusiasm. I feel renewed and filled with life's energy. My heart is open and receptive to new experiences, knowing that whatever comes my way, I will see and feel the good in it.
As I go about the activities of my day, I feel myself swaying with the rhythm of love and gratitude. I audibly say, "Thank you!" as if the whole world could hear it, and I imagine it responding back to me, "You are welcome!"

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me. --Psalm 103:1

Let Go, Let God as I Pray for Others

I see the Christ in each person who touches my life.

In life we can experience challenging circumstances. In prayer, I look beyond temporary conditions to see the perfection in whatever may be happening and to behold the Christ within each person.
All people have within them the sacred presence that Jesus demonstrated. This is the Christ Presence. I pray in the awareness of the Christ in me honoring the Christ in another. Whether at the store, on the phone, at work or in traffic--each interaction I have is an invitation for me to bless those I encounter.
As I think of others, I enfold them in love. Living from the love, joy and peace in me, I bless and share these gifts with others.

I pray that ... Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, as you are being rooted and grounded in love.--Ephesians 3:16, 17

Let Go, Let God and Forgive

I behold each person and each experience through the eyes of love.
Forgiveness is a choice, a conscious act. To forgive is to open to new possibilities, to release limiting thoughts and actions and to experience peace of mind and heart. What a freeing experience this is!
Today I make a conscious choice to forgive. I give thanks for the spiritual capacity, awareness and desire to free myself from fear and resentment. By choosing to forgive, I express God's love and understanding toward myself and others.
As I forgive, I remember that life is a learning experience and that the people I meet and the situations I encounter are part of that experience. The lessons I learn may be tough or joyful, but each one helps me grow and develop as a spiritual being.

Forgive, act, and render to all whose hearts you know--according to all their ways.--1 Kings 8:39

Christ Is Risen! Let Go, Let God

Christ is Risen! Life is renewed and I am grateful.

Jesus, our Way Shower, lived a life of overcoming. Through awareness of his eternal nature and oneness with God, Jesus demonstrated mastery even over death. His followers were amazed and overjoyed as they recognized the risen Christ Jesus.
Easter is a celebration of the resurrection. With joy, I acknowledge the rising of my own Christ nature. Following the teachings of Jesus, I overcome trials of doubt and fear that may have darkened my mind. One with the overcoming power of Christ, I rise and shake off the past. Any stone of despair lying heavy on my heart rolls away in the bright morning light. Guided by my inner Christ Presence, I joyfully walk in the newness of life.

Just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.--Romans 6:4

Let Go, Let God Provide Earth Blessings

I am rich in the wonders of the Earth.

In nature, I am reminded of God's wonder. I feel a commitment and desire to do all I can to sustain the health of Mother Earth. From a place of stewardship and love, I know I can effect change.
Each day, I am grateful for the ways my life is enriched by the earth. Through my actions, I honor and respect her. Every time I nurture and love myself and others, I extend the same love and support to Mother Earth.
Her ability to survive and thrive is apparent as I lovingly work the soil or sink my feet into the sand. The pulsating energy of Spirit is alive in her. I am comforted by that knowledge. In awareness of her splendor, I silently express joy and thanks to God.

Then God said, "Let the earth put forth vegetation: plants yielding seed, and fruit trees of every kind...." And it was so.–Genesis 1:11

Let Go, Let God Teach Me to Surrender

I surrender to Spirit and find rest for my soul.
When I am experiencing darkness or difficulty, my belief in the power and love of Spirit brings me comfort and direction. In the face of any challenge, I am never alone. I remember there is value and promise even in the toughest times. During hardship or heartache, I become truly teachable. In the transition from darkness to light, I gain new understanding about myself and about life. I find the strength and resilience to go on.
Resurrection follows a crucifixion experience; a magnificent rebirth follows uncertain or demanding times. As I surrender to Spirit, I am enfolded in love and peace. I am ready to rise to all life has to offer.
Then Jesus, crying with a loud voice, said, "Father, into your hands I commend my spirit." Having said this, he breathed his last.--Luke 23:46

Let Go, Let God Give Commandment

I act lovingly toward others.
Before the Last Supper, Jesus washed his disciples' feet as a demonstration of love and humility. As he did, he commanded them to love one another. As I think about Jesus' words, I consider the ways in which I express love to others.
There are many types of love: the love of a parent for a child and of family members for one another; the love experienced in friendship and companionship; the love expressed in sharing ideas and beliefs.
Considering Jesus' commandment, I make a new commitment to actively express love toward others. I look for opportunities to give and receive love, knowing that I am putting into motion the truth that Jesus shared--that love is the greatest power of all.
I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you.--John 13:34

Let Go, Let God Give Direction

Wherever I choose to go, the spirit of God guides me safely home.
Traveling into unfamiliar territory, I look for landmarks to help me find my way back. I may take note of a school, a farmhouse or a lake to mark my path. On my return, seeing those landmarks brings me comfort and peace. I am assured that I will find my way home again.
Similarly, when I am in an unfamiliar situation--perhaps facing a new challenge or opportunity in a job or relationship--I look for spiritual landmarks. These come my way as a sense of serendipity or a familiar feeling of confidence, clarity or peace.
The spirit of God provides my route and guides my course of action. Wherever I go, I am confident that God will guide me home.
The Lord went in front of them in a pillar of cloud by day, to lead them along the way, and in a pillar of fire by night, to give them light.--Exodus 13:21
