Let Go Let God Be Unlimited

In Spirit, I am unlimited.

Where Spirit is present, there is freedom--and Spirit is within me. The spirit of God enables me to face any challenge with wisdom, serenity and resolve. In Spirit, I am unlimited.

Jesus assured his followers they were capable of living an unlimited life. Just as God's spirit enables the birds of the air to find food and shelter, Spirit supports me as I live and create a happy and meaningful life.

A consciousness of freedom delivers me from all self-imposed restrictions. I am free to grow and to change. My potential for success is unlimited and my opportunities to serve others and express love and joy are endless.

Aware of the spirit of God ever-present within me, I am free and unlimited.

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.--2 Corinthians 3:17

Let Go Let God on this Journey

I celebrate the journey of my life.

Life is a journey that continuously takes me from comfortable and familiar territory to the new and unexplored. At times in my life I may change jobs, build a family, move to a different home or city, travel around the world. Venturing into the unknown can feel frightening. I choose to embrace the adventure of exploring new possibilities. With every change and challenge, God is with me.

I may not be able to see around each bend--but I know I will be led to the right destination. I have the wisdom and understanding to navigate any speed bumps, detours or obstacles. I celebrate the wide-open grandeur of life as I travel with the Divine on my spectacular life journey.

When our days there were ended, we left and proceeded on our journey.--Acts 21:5

Let Go Let God with Hope

I hold hope in my heart.

Today I hold in my heart the hope for peace and abundance for the entire world. My hopes for myself and others include protection, guidance, wholeness and peace. In times of crisis, hope is the seed that has the potential to bear fruit.

I center my hope in the power and presence of God within each person. I see the potential for good in every situation. God is at work and order, peace, health and abundance are manifesting all around us.

My hope for world leaders is for mindful awareness of the good in all people; my hope for those with influence is for generosity; and my hope for those in need is to find their faith in the Divine within, allowing them to experience joy, peace and fulfillment.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace.--Romans 15:13

Let Go Let God Be Set Free

I forgive and experience lasting peace and freedom.

When I consider forgiving someone, my body may respond in various ways. I may feel a tightness in my chest from anger or resistance. Or I may sense a peaceful, inner knowing that I am ready to let my resentment go.

I choose today to be set free through the act of forgiveness. As I forgive, my body releases stress and strain. I open to receive God's peace and love as I release the burden of anger and hostility. Greater blessings await me, as I set aside condemning thoughts and attitudes. I am uplifted and my load is lightened.

I forgive myself and others, and love the people in my life unconditionally. I embrace a new way of thinking and living. Through forgiveness, I am set free!

For freedom Christ has set us free.--Galatians 5:1

Let Go Let God Provide Comfort

God's light shines steadily within me.

Some experiences in our lives may seem difficult to handle. Our way appears dark, and we reach out for greater strength to sustain us. How wonderful it is to know that God's infinite love ever enfolds and upholds us to bring us true peace and serenity.

In challenging times, I affirm: God's light shines steadily within me. The light of God dispels all darkness and illumines my mind and heart. Nothing can separate me from the light and love of God. I am comforted in God's presence. I am uplifted, sustained and strengthened. I am fully supported and my needs are met. The love and light of God are my comfort always.

I have come as light into the world, so that everyone who believes in me should not remain in the darkness.--John 12:46

Let Go Let God with Gratitude

Divine Love blesses and multiplies all that I have, all that I give and all that I receive.

My heart is filled with thankfulness for the continuous flow of God's good. And while I earnestly give thanks for specific things, occurrences and people, I also maintain a grateful state of mind regardless of outer circumstances.

I appreciate the world in which I live, its wonder and its opportunity. I grow in understanding as I experience all that life holds. The Christ Presence within me is my resource for living each day fully and confidently. It is the original blessing and the underlying foundation for a grateful heart.

My prayer is one of simple thanksgiving. As the great Christian mystic Meister Eckhart once said, "If the only prayer you ever say is 'thank you,' that would suffice."

Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!--2 Corinthians 9:15

Let Go Let God be Gracious

I welcome all with a loving heart.

During Jesus' ministry, he ate and stayed with many people at their homes. I reflect on the qualities of a gracious host and wonder what it might have been like to welcome such a loving teacher into my home.

To a gracious host, a guest is never an imposition, because the heart is always open and welcoming. I receive my guests warmly with appreciation and interest. I freely share what is mine to give.

I value each person who is invited into my home. Every visit is an opportunity to connect with others, and I am grateful. My life is transformed by the love of the Christ activated in each gracious gesture.

"Zacchaeus, hurry and come down; for I must stay at your house today." So he hurried down and was happy to welcome him.--Luke 19:5-6

Let Go, Let God

I let Spirit guide me.

Today I vow to try something new. I let Spirit take the reins of my life and show me the way to go. Centering myself in the spirit of God within me, I ask, "What is mine to do?" I listen to the wisdom that comes to my heart and mind. This is the still small voice of Spirit. I trust the wisdom I receive, take action and do what feels right and good.

At the end of the day, I reflect with gratitude on the insight I received. How were my actions different today? How does it feel to trust in Spirit's inner wisdom?

More and more, I let go of my need to control. I open myself to God and ask for more answers. I listen and take action. I let Spirit guide me in all I do.

Let the Lord your God show us where we should go and what we should do.--Jeremiah 42:3

Let Go Let God Guide Family

My family is a blessing to me.

My family is a unique, living organism that can be a place of great belonging. It may be happy and harmonious or it may be challenging. Whatever the current dynamic, I remain open and willing to love unconditionally.

The presence of God is at the heart of our household. If there is disharmony or strife, I bring my concerns to prayer. I acknowledge my role and call upon divine wisdom to guide me. I act in wise ways with love and understanding.

Even when I do not understand everyone's actions or attitudes, I can see my family members as children of God, expressions of God's love. When I take on this awareness, I feel our connection with one another expand.

I will be the God of all the families.--Jeremiah 31:1

Let Go Let God Realize Divine Order

My inspired ideas grow to fruition in divine order.

Each year as our planet travels around the sun, the changing seasons bring an orderly process of renewal and growth. A farmer doesn't plant seeds in the frozen winter ground, but rather, recognizes and works in harmony with the order of God's creation.

Likewise, there is an orderly process of creation in my life. In the silence, I open to inspiration and seeds of divine ideas are planted in me. I take inspired action, sowing my ideas and patiently awaiting their growth. In their season, my ideas spring into manifestation and I feel the joy of co-creation. Just as a farmer trusts in order when planting seeds, I hold to my faith and watch as my inspired ideas grow to fruition in divine order.

On the mountain height of Israel I will plant it, in order that it may produce boughs and bear fruit, and become a noble cedar.--Ezekiel 17:23

Let Go Let God Value World Peace

I contribute to a world where peace prevails.

Because I value peace, I release my attachment to how others should be or act. I have faith in Divine Love moving in and through me to guide my relationships. I am at peace within and I share that peace by loving those around me. As love ripples from me into the world, more people than I can possibly imagine are affected.

In 1971 John Lennon wrote "Imagine," a song that expressed his dream of world peace: Imagine all the people / Living life in peace ... You may say I'm a dreamer / But I'm not the only one / I hope someday you'll join us / And the world will be as one.

I join in holding this vision of peace for the world, because I have experienced the peace of God within me.

Let us then pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding.--Romans 14:19

Let Go Let God in Faith

I choose to live by faith.

I understand many things in life intellectually or because my senses prove them to be true. Other things I know intuitively, but cannot prove; I accept them on faith. When I plant seeds, I have faith they will produce the desired fruit, flower or vegetable. When I am confused about the direction of my life, I have faith that the wisdom of God is my guiding principle, leading me along the path toward my highest good.

I have faith that I am one with God and that wherever I am, whatever I am doing, my center is the Divine within--a center of love, peace and harmony. I choose to live by faith, and I am calm, confident and at peace.

For truly I tell you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, "Move from here to there," and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.--Matthew 17:20

Let Go Let God Be Protected

The spirit of God goes before me, making safe and successful my way.

Closing my eyes and thinking of a loved one can bring a smile to my face and peace to my soul. The opposite is also true: When I worry, I may feel physical or emotional discomfort. Choosing to experience the joy of life, I keep my thoughts positive and uplifted. Whether driving down the road or standing in line, getting a physical exam or interviewing for a job, I keep my mind free of anxiety and fear. I affirm what is true: The spirit of God goes before me, making safe and successful my way.

My life-affirming attitude allows me to experience the good in each moment. I live in the present and accept it with gratitude. I have confidence knowing I am always in God's presence.

You will have confidence, because there is hope; you will be protected.--Job 11:18

Let Go Let God with Acceptance

I accept and bless myself and others.

I accept myself as well. I do not judge harshly my past mistakes or perceived short-comings. I give myself the freedom to make mistakes, to have a unique point of view and to continue to learn and grow as a spiritual being. By accepting myself and others, I embrace differences and celebrate the uniqueness of every individual.
Acceptance is a powerful word, for it implies a willingness to listen and be open. Acceptance does not necessarily mean that I adopt another's point of view; it means I accept the right of another to have views different from my own. I accept people of different faiths, cultures and lifestyles. Each person is a child of God--divinely created and divinely guided.

Do not judge, so that you may not be judged.--Matthew 7:1

Let Go Let God Be Empowered

I have easy access to the power of the Divine within me.

There is one true Source of power, wisdom and love in my life. I may call it God, Spirit, Creator or the Divine Infinite. It empowers me through varied channels--words of Scripture, affirmations of Truth, the lyrics of an inspiring song, encouragement from a friend or teacher.

Every change I move through and every insight I receive gives me a renewed sense of the divine power that is mine to claim and use in my life. I am empowered when I overcome challenges, when I serve others and when I keep my commitments. I pay attention to the moments I feel empowered and discover I have easy and ever-present access to the power of the Divine within me.

To you, O God of my ancestors, I give thanks and praise, for you have given me wisdom and power.--Daniel 2:23

Let Go Let God Provide Healing

With gratitude, I accept health and wholeness.

I have been given a great gift–the gift of my physical body. It is the housing for my spirit and my soul. I demonstrate gratitude for this gift by treating my body with love and respect.

When I am tempted to fall into habits or ways of being that don’t support my highest good, I call myself higher. I listen to the wisdom of my body temple and respond to the messages I hear. My inner voice guides me to make life-affirming choices.

I think and speak in positive, uplifting ways. I envision myself healthy and whole. Each cell of my body responds to my loving, peaceful thoughts. With gratitude, I welcome and accept healing and wholeness.

Peace, peace, to the far and the near, says the Lord; and I will heal them. –Isaiah 57:19

Let Go Let God on the Sabbath

In the presence of God, I am renewed.

Squeezing one more task, errand or responsibility into a day can leave me so focused on "doing" that I seem to do nothing well. This is my wake-up call--a realization that by doing more and more things, I am neglecting my own spirituality.

Observing a Sabbath, I take time away from rushing to be alone with God or to gather with others in worship. The Sabbath is about being fully in the presence of God and recharging my spiritual battery. Physical renewal springs forth when I make time for the renewal of my spirit. I am refreshed by a wellspring of divine energy and life.

As I put God first, all else falls into place. My "doing" takes on new meaning and purpose, because I know my oneness with God.

Remember the sabbath day, and keep it holy.--Exodus 20:8

Let Go Let God Express Uniqueness

I am blessed on my life's path and guided to right outcomes.

The path I walk may have been cleared by others who have traveled before me, but it is new to me and uniquely my own. Every footstep, action and decision I make leaves its own special mark.

As I move through my life, I am continually aware of the presence of God within and around me--guiding me to my unique destination and outcome. I work in tandem with God to be a divine expression in my own way.

I appreciate the unique qualities that every person has to share with the world. We all have journeys to travel, individual and collective contributions to make, and one-of-a-kind purposes to fulfill. The spirit of God within guides us forward in truth and love.

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 Service

With admiration, I honor those who serve others.

In silent tribute, I pause and remember those who, in service to humankind, have sacrificed their lives. I pray for goodwill among people and peace on earth as a lasting tribute to their sacrifice.

To those who have answered the call to serve, I say, "Thank you." I appreciate your sacrifice and accomplishments. I am grateful for your strength, courage and perseverance in the face of great challenge. I respect your dedication. I honor you today and offer this prayer: May the light of God surround all who are serving or have served this country. May Divine Love enfold them; Divine Power protect them; and may the presence of God watch over them now and always. Amen.
Pay to all what is due them, ... respect to whom respect is due, honor to whom honor is due.--Romans 13:7

Let Go Let God Find Inner Peace

In the silence, I find Peace
My peaceful place is not a room or a spot on the map. My peaceful place is a state of consciousness. The moment I turn my attention away from the outer world, I begin my journey into the Silence.
With eyes closed, my heart knows the way. The rhythm of my breath carries me as if I were lying in a gently rocking boat. Troubled thoughts, fears and concerns fall away as I move deeper. I go within and rest from the cares and busyness of my day. I am a spiritual being; I am God's peace in expression.
When I resume my usual activities, I remain centered in inner peace. My words are kinder. I am slow to anger and patient with myself and others. I am at peace.
Let me hear what God the Lord will speak, for he will speak peace to his people. --Psalm 85:8

Let Go Let God in Prosperity

I behold unlimited possibilities, and my prosperity grows.

Some may struggle over these words from the Gospel of Matthew: "To all those who have, more will be given." Seeking a greater understanding of the principle at work, I see that whatever I put my energy into grows. When I focus on lack, lack grows. When I appreciate abundant prosperity, mine or another's, more is given to me.

I look to nature for evidence of God's limitless riches, wisdom and knowledge. In season, apple trees hang heavy with fruit. Mighty oaks cover the forest floor with acorns. I, too, am a prosperous creation of God, filled with divine ideas. Using the power of divine wisdom, I shift my focus from financial limitation to unlimited possibility. I appreciate every good thing, and I attract more good into my life.

For to all those who have, more will be given, and they will have an abundance.--Matthew 25:29

Let Go Let God with Joy

I am thrilled with the joy of living.

Have I been merely existing rather than knowing the full joy of living? To experience the transformative power of joy, I let the Christ Spirit move in me. I act from Christ consciousness and allow it to inform my thoughts, lighten and lift my vision, and create about me an atmosphere of peace and happiness.

Joy is a result of interest and awareness, of active appreciation and creative expression. I take time to be interested in my neighbor's welfare and offer a helping hand. I see the beauty of nature and hear music in the hum of the day's activities. I recognize the Christ in myself and in others. I let my soul be thrilled and exalted as I actively and purposefully take joy in living a full and complete life.

With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.--Isaiah 12:3

Monday, November 7, 2011

Let Go Let God in Harmony

I live in harmony with my life's unfolding.

The leaf does not complain about the hot sun or the cold rain. When it falls, it does not blame the stream that carries it away. It simply lives and grows and changes in harmony with all that is.

In my life, I experience times of joy and of sorrow, times of rest and of great change. I release the struggle to make outer conditions different than they are. I find peace in living in harmony with my life's path. I am God's beloved child, comforted in sad times and wise and strong in times of change. There is nothing to fear from the events of my life.

I know this truth: No outer condition is forever. Free from judgment and blame, I live in harmony with my life's unfolding.

Agree with God, and be at peace; in this way good will come to you. --Job 22:21

Sunday, November 6, 2011

Let Go Let God Pray for Others

I pray for others with transcendent faith.

As I behold the Christ in people with whom I live and work, I behold, appreciate and praise their innate goodness. I recognize that we all are following the divine light within to the best of our ability, no matter what the appearance.

As I persist in beholding the Christ presence in every person, I am free from the limitation of human judgment. I am free from criticism and condemnation. I am free from thoughts and attitudes that keep me from loving, understanding and helping other persons.

I do not judge where someone is in their spiritual development. My recognition of the Christ in another calls forth the Christ perfection in us all.

And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.--John 12:32

Saturday, November 5, 2011

Let Go Let God in Wellness

I am whole and well.

When I or someone I care about experiences a health challenge, I have an opportunity to look beyond the appearance of illness to see the spiritual wholeness inherent within. With thoughts and words of affirmation, I acknowledge the indwelling potential for healing and give thanks in advance for its manifestation.

I recognize spiritual wholeness whether I am feeling well or unwell. I maintain or restore my physical vitality and energy by making healthy choices of food, activities and ways of thinking. Even when I'm not feeling my best, I visualize my innate wholeness and am guided to find any resources needed to reclaim my physical health. I am an expression of divine life, wholeness and well-being.

Your eye is the lamp of your body. If your eye is healthy, your whole body is full of light.--Luke 11:34

Friday, November 4, 2011

Let Go Let God Look to Nature

I am restored through my communion with nature.

Year-round, nature is the doorway to my restoration. Whether I am taking in the brisk winter air or the scent of spring, scouting out a summer picnic or hiking on a crisp fall afternoon, nature feeds my soul and restores my spirit.
I marvel at the sights, sounds and scents of each season, realizing that the same omniscient power that created such beauty also created me. I am no less amazing than the most spectacular sunset and no less magnificent than the rarest flower.
I look forward to moments alone in nature where I rediscover my oneness with God and the universe, gaining a new perspective, a quiet heart and a healthier outlook.

He makes me lie down in green pastures; ... he restores my soul. --Psalm 23:2, 3

Thursday, November 3, 2011

Let Go Let God Provide Guidance

I rest in the awareness of God, and I am guided in right ways.

If I am facing a crossroads in my life, or an important decision, or if I simply want a greater sense of divine direction, I affirm the invocation as taught by Jesus, "Your will be done."

This simple affirmation helps me turn within and reaffirm my faith in God. It allows me to release my fears and invite divine direction. My task is to get myself--including any negative thoughts, fears or concerns--out of the way and allow the presence of God to guide me. When I trust in the Presence within me and follow its lead, I am blessed in countless ways. I have confidence that the path I am following is leading me to opportunities for peace, joy and freedom. What a blessing it is to relax and trust in God.

Your kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.--Matthew 6:10

Let Go Let God as I Shift

I shift my thinking and make new choices.

As I look at my life, I see some things working remarkably well. I am blessed by talents and gifts, and the opportunity to use them. But I also notice things that aren't working as well. In those areas, perhaps a shift is needed. If I keep doing the same thing over and over again, I cannot expect a different result. So today, I decide to make some new choices. Even small changes, made consistently, can make a great difference.

I begin by shifting my thoughts. As ideas for change come to mind, the accompanying spiritual support also becomes clear. As I make adjustments and alter my course, one thing never changes: Every moment of every day, I am loved and led by Spirit.

I have good advice and sound wisdom; I have insight, I have strength. --Proverbs 8:14

Tuesday, November 1, 2011

Let Go Let God Hold Promise

Today holds great promise.

Each day holds great promise and endless possibilities. Perhaps I'll make a new friend or be inspired to write a poem or create a work of art. Maybe a prayer will be answered, harmony and peace will come to a troubled relationship, or an insight will become clear to me today.
When I open to the surprises and delights of each new day, I let go of limited or rigid expectations. If something doesn't turn out exactly as I planned, I open to what is. God is present in me, and all is well.
I am present to life as it unfolds. I trust in God and appreciate both the small and large blessings that each day holds. I eagerly await life's surprises.

O Lord of hosts, happy is everyone who trusts in you. --Psalm 84:12
