Let Go Let God in Reflection

I reflect on my past--what I have learned, and what I have created.

As this year ends and a new one begins, I reflect on the events of my past, the lessons learned and the wisdom gained. I see life from a different perspective today than I did a decade, a year or even a month ago. My circumstances have changed, and so have I.

I am continually honing my skills at living a life of purpose and meaning. I think before I speak, knowing my words have power. My actions are deliberate, hopeful and positive.

I reflect on my past and what I have created. As I move forward, I bring with me the best of what was, and I create the best from what is. Thoughtfully, prayerfully and purposefully, I am ready for a new beginning.

See, the former things have come to pass, and new things I now declare. --Isaiah 42:9

Let Go, Let God

I let go and let God: All things are possible.

I can do anything I set my mind on. Endowed with divine inner faculties, unique abilities and awareness of my oneness with God, I can achieve all I want to achieve.

Before starting any task, I take a few moments to connect with God. I open my mind to divine instruction and listen for inner guidance. I put my thoughts aside and allow the presence of God to lead me. If I find I am wrestling with a problem, I remind myself to let go and let God. In the quiet communion of prayer, the wisdom of God speaks to my heart and I know what to do. I let go of the appearance of human limitations. I let God be God, and all things are possible.

Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine, to him be glory.--Ephesians 3:20

Let Go Let God all is in Divine Order

I open myself to divine order.

Disorder and confusion are symptoms of the need to get back in tune with God. Divine order is always at work. When I am in tune with it, I find that the crooked places become straight and the rough places smooth. The things that have seemed disorganized and confused fall into place, and order pervades.

Rather than struggle to straighten out any confusion that appears, I first bring my thoughts and feelings under control and gain the inner peace and serenity that come only from God. I declare my oneness with God and affirm: God is in me, and God is working through me to fulfill a good purpose. I am now open to God's perfect order. I allow my life to unfold as it should.

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

Let Go Let God Find Comfort

I am comforted by the love of God and blessed with peace.

Change is a part of life. Seasons change, children become adults, people enter and exit my life under both sad and happy circumstances. Every change brings a blessing, however easy or hard it may be to see at the time. Every change is a part of our life's journey as spiritual beings.

If changes are stirring sadness in me, I open my heart to the peace and comfort of God. I am never alone, for God is with me through every change. The love of God guides me in difficult moments and rejoices with me in happy times.

I greet change with an open heart and a willing spirit. I am not on my own. God is my comfort, and I am at peace.

I am the gate. Whoever enters by me will be saved, and will come in and go out and find pasture.--John 10:9

Let Go Let God Provide Prosperity

I live in an abundant universe, and I am prosperous.

My prosperity is revealed to me through the medium of divine ideas. I do not linger on thoughts of lack or failure. I envision the unfoldment of divine possibilities and potential.

I allow a firm foundation of prosperity consciousness to take root and flourish within me by affirming: I live in an abundant universe, and I am prosperous.

My every desire for good and for a fuller expression of life is met by a field of divine support. The spirit of God within me is urging me to greater and greater expression. Whether I am seeking financial wealth, health, friendship or peace, I affirm that I am worthy of the kingdom. I trust in God as my Source of infinite supply. Knowing Truth, I cannot lack any good thing.

My cup runneth over.--Psalm 23:5

Let Go Let God with Compassion

I keep my heart open wide in loving compassion toward all.

If someone in my family is hurt or distressed, I can effect a positive change by maintaining a healthy, understanding attitude. Sincere expressions of care and concern help support those I hold in prayer. Just as food and water restore the physical body, love and compassion help restore the spirit.

For my global family I pray continually, holding thoughts of loving-kindness and envisioning right outcomes for the world's conflicts. I see every person and animal surrounded by the light and love of God. I pray that peace, love and comfort are abundant in every life. I have faith that the living spirit of God within is restoring every being to wholeness in mind, body and spirit.

For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.--Matthew 25:35

Let Go Let God on Christmas Day

As I open my heart to love, Christ is born in me.
Long ago, three wise men following a star were led to a place in Bethlehem. There they found the baby Jesus and were filled with joy. Reverently they offered their gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.
People the world over exchange gifts on Christmas, but the greatest gift doesn't come wrapped in a package. Better than precious metals and fragrant spices is the unconditional love of God. This is the gift that Jesus Christ lived and taught. Love is the gift that brings life to both giver and receiver.
I open my heart to love this day and the Christ Spirit is born in me. I celebrate Christmas by humbly giving and gratefully receiving the peace and love of God.
When they saw that the star had stopped, they were overwhelmed with joy. On entering the house, they saw the child with Mary his mother; and they knelt down and paid him homage.--Matthew 2:10-11

Let Go Let God Ensured in Safety

My loved ones and I are safe in the presence of God.
Many people travel during the holidays to visit friends and family near and far. I offer this prayer of blessing to all travelers as they make their way by highway, water or air:
May you know the presence of God is with you on your journey. God, the essence of all good, is within you as divine guidance, protection and order. Wherever you go, God is there.
The presence of God within you provides wisdom and direction, peace of mind and good judgment to ensure that your needs will be met. Your safety and the safety of your fellow travelers is ensured.
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, so that they might travel by day and by night.--Exodus 13:21

Let Go Let God in the Presence of Light

Darkness dissolves in the presence of God's light.
The winter solstice marks the shortest day of the year, but with it comes the promise of greater sunlight in the days ahead. Darkness is driven away by the light.
The light from a single candle is so powerful that when its flame is shared with another, nothing is lost. The candlelight illuminates the darkness, time and time again.
Divine light drives away darkness in my mind and in my life. When I shift my attention away from dark thoughts and focus on prayers of gratitude and joy, the spark of divinity ignites within me.
I joyously share God's light with others. As God's light shines through me, my life and the lives of others are uplifted.
I am writing you a new commandment ... because the darkness is passing away and the true light is already shining.--1 John 2:8

Let Go Let God Forgive

I forgive others and hold them in prayer.

When I have been hurt by another, the last thing I may feel like doing is forgiving. If a person says something that upsets or insults me, an organization takes action that angers me, or life seems unfair, there is a part of me that may want justice, not forgiveness.
In truth, though, there is no victory in resentment. I am the one who suffers when I choose not to forgive. As I release and let go of my need to defend my position, I am liberated. I experience a return to peace, rather than a need to blame.
While I do not condone hurtful behavior, and I take action when necessary, I do not hold anger in my heart. I forgive and bring the matter to God in prayer.

Whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone.--Mark 11:25

Let Go Let God with Honesty

I am honest with myself and with others.

Each day brings opportunities for me to be honest with myself and others. Observing my thoughts and actions, I know which ones are true, honorable and in alignment with my innate goodness. If I am not expressing my best, I turn to the Christ within and realign my self-talk, adjust my behaviors, and work to make things right.

Being honest with myself is one way I show self-respect and self-regard. I acknowledge my Christ Spirit, appreciate my strengths, and recognize growth areas. I make changes and seek help when needed. I build relationships with honest communication. I offer opinions, make requests, and share my feelings with respect and positive intentions.

These are the ones who, when they hear the word, hold it fast in an honest and good heart, and bear fruit with patient endurance.--Luke 8:15

Let Go Let God Rejoice

The joy of Spirit is with me always.

Turning my attention inward to the Christ of my being, I rest in the peace of God. I let go of cares and concerns and entrust all to God. From within this inner sanctuary and awareness of God's presence, joy spontaneously arises and I am lifted up.

My joy comes from trusting God, from knowing that outer circumstances or possessions are not the source of lasting joy. I realize the joy of Spirit is with me always. As God's child, my true nature is to be joyous. I am cheerful and happy and radiate joy to everyone I meet.

Joy sustains my soul, strengthens and heals my body, and harmonizes my relationships. I am blessed by the joy of Spirit.

I have said these things to you so that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be complete.--John 15:11

Let Go Let God with Generosity

I give generously from my heart.

Christmastime is a joyous season of goodwill and generosity--a time when the giving spirit is flowing freely. Everywhere we see examples of people reaching out with kindness and love.

This year, I am generous in my thoughts, words, actions and attitudes. In helping a neighbor, sharing gifts with co-workers, contributing to charitable organizations, I share from the heart. I express generosity by being kind and loving, by praising and encouraging others, and by praying for anyone in need who comes to my mind and heart. The ways in which I can be generous are endless.

Today I make it my loving task to express generosity. As I do, I know that I am blessing myself and others.

They are to do good, to be rich in good works, generous, and ready to share.--1 Timothy 6:18

Let Go Let God Receive Guidance

As I quiet my mind, I access inner wisdom.

When I seek help with a life decision, I open myself to divine guidance by turning down the volume of the noisy world. I turn off the radio, the television, the computer, so I can hear the still small voice of Infinite Wisdom.

Spending time in nature or involving myself in a creative endeavor helps me change my state of mind and step away from my usual distractions. Moving apart for a time of quiet prayer and meditation tells my spirit I am willing to listen for the wisdom of the Divine.

Divine guidance comes from within and is available whenever I need it. I simply step away from the noise and into the Silence to access it.

The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom, and whatever else you get, get insight. --Proverbs 4:7

Let Go Let God in Friendship

Friendship is a mirror that reflects the grace of God.

Throughout my life, I have countless opportunities to be a friend and to make new friends. Each friendship is an occasion to experience God in action--to behold kindness, peace, happiness and love in each person I meet. Each friendship is also an opportunity for me to reveal my highest and best qualities.
My friends and I balance one another's strengths and weaknesses and enjoy a comfortable camaraderie as we walk our life's paths. My friends know me and love me, lift my spirits by their presence, and help me find my way in the world. I gladly reciprocate.
Each friend is a blessing in my life. Each one has helped me become the person I am today. I thank God for my friends.

A true friend sticks closer than one's nearest kin.--Proverbs 18:24

Let Go Let God with Self-Care

As I rest in God, my balance is restored.

December can be a busy time. In rushing about, I may neglect my own physical and spiritual needs. Even when it's time to rest, I may push myself to keep going and do more. It's helpful to remember that I am the one who needs to take care of me.

I give myself permission to step back and take time for physical and spiritual self-care. It only takes a moment apart to let go of any stressors. Resting in God, I breathe deeply and feel my body relax. I let tension and strain melt away. I affirm divine life and vitality flowing in and through me. Spending time in quiet communion with God restores my balance, physically and spiritually.

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 in Divine Order

My life is unfolding exactly as it should.

As I awaken to the Presence within me, I become aware of how my life is unfolding moment by moment in divine order. Each event is part of the whole and important to the divine direction of my life.

If I perceive a setback or a wrong turn, I consider my options. I can "go with the flow" and see what comes next or I can attempt to change course. I center my thoughts on Spirit and invite the faculties of wisdom and inspiration to guide me. I choose to trust my inner wisdom.

I give thanks for unexpected developments that awaken me to the Presence within. Each one brings me greater awareness of divine order in my life and in all I experience.

He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who has given us the Spirit as a guarantee.--2 Corinthians 5:5

Let Go Let God Pray for Others

I share the power of prayer with my universal family.

As I pray for others, I experience the goodness of God. Holding thoughts of peace, love, wholeness or safety for another gives me peace. I experience firsthand the power of affirmative prayer. I needn't know the details of the situation for which I pray. The One within me is within all people. I trust the Holy Spirit within to discern what another heart needs.

When I am facing a difficult situation, when I feel sad, or when I need to be reminded that I am not alone, I allow the prayers of my universal family to channel into my heart and soul.

Praying for others is one of the most powerful ways to love one another. I am blessed to be part of the family of God.

Whatever you ask for in prayer with faith, you will receive.--Matthew 21:22

Let Go Let God with Love

I open my heart to the all-powerful love of God.

The love of God is a powerful force for good. Divine love mends differences, creates joy and opens hearts and lives to unlimited blessings.

Love is the foundation of all unity. Where love is, there can be no differences, separation or inharmony. Divine love allows us to hold to the truth that only good is at work and that only good prevails.

Love is "the fulfilling of the law," the assurance that there is something greater to experience, something more to enjoy. Love is magnetic. It draws to itself every good thing.

I am developing a love consciousness. I feel divine love at work within me now, causing me to see myself and others in the right light, the light of love.

Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore, love is the fulfilling of the law.--Romans 13:10

Let Go Let God in Stream of Life

I am in the stream of Life.

If it feels like my life is moving so fast I do not have the time or energy to accomplish all I want, I remember that I am in the divine stream of Life. It is the stream in which I live and move and have my being. It flows from God in and through me.

Being in the stream of Life, I have access to the power of God. I accept God as the life energy in my body, expressed in every atom and every part of me. I am revitalized and energized.

Being in the stream of Life, I also have access to the substance of God. God-substance flows through me as plenty to meet every need. I affirm that divine substance enriches and prospers every aspect of my life.

All life, power, energy and substance flow from God as the stream of Life within me.

The river of God is full of water.--Psalm 65:9

Let Go Let God in Hallowed Moments

In hallowed moments, I am one with the Divine.

Often we are separated from objects considered too valuable to touch--artwork, sculpture, relics from antiquity--but communing with the truly sacred is an experience of touching the Divine.

I close my eyes, take a gentle breath and leave the clutter and clatter behind. I remember a holy moment full of love and oneness. I rest in the quiet chapel of my mind and heart.

In the stillness I feel the presence of pure Love. Enfolded in this Love, my heart opens ever wider until there is no "me and Love," there is only "Love." Time stops and I am ageless. I am Love and every possibility of Love. I rest in this hallowed moment until a thought stirs me back into the world.

O Lord, I love the house in which you dwell, and the place where your glory abides. --Psalm 26:8

Let Go Let God Forgive

I live in full awareness of the presence of God.

In truth I know I am one with God, that I live and move and have my being in God. If I feel separated from this ever-present goodness and love, I examine my thoughts and feelings for resentments that may have become a burden, a barrier to freedom.

I ask the Holy Spirit within me to reveal what needs to be revealed, forgiven and released. I affirm my intention to forgive and ask for God's help: Dear God, I am willing to release feelings of hurt and anger and to live in full awareness of your presence.

Forgiving myself and others frees me to experience ongoing spiritual growth and fullness of life. Maintaining a consciousness of forgiveness, I strive to see everyone as a part of me and as a child of God.

Therefore I do my best always to have a clear conscience toward God and all people.--Acts 24:16

Let Go Let God Provide Comfort

I give expression to the creative, healing power of Divine Love.

A heart capable of sadness is one capable of understanding and love. We find our way out of the emotional depths by giving expression to the creative, healing activity of divine love within.

There are many ways to turn sadness into creative activity--doing something helpful for another person, writing a poem, painting a picture, or giving time and effort to a worthy cause. By contributing something constructive to life, we sublimate our sadness and find peace in our hearts.

Often when we are stirred to great depths of feeling and emotion, we find that we are capable of greater understanding, that we are in tune with the heart of humanity.

I will comfort them, and give them gladness for sorrow. --Jeremiah 31:13

Let Go Let God Live Life

I am filled with life, sweet life.

Life is an endless circle within God. From before birth to beyond the transition called death, I am filled with life. My soul wears this earthly garment I call my body, which I cherish and care for. When I finally lay it down, my soul continues to live, always in God's care and keeping.
During this life experience, I live fully and confidently, knowing that the life of God animates my body and the wisdom of God flows through my mind. I use my mind, my hands, my voice and my heart to express life, to express God.
I behold the sweetness of life within and all around me. I delight in the tiniest delicate flower and the tallest majestic mountain. I am one with all life and one with the Creator.

Whoever believes in him may have eternal life.--John 3:15

Let Go Let God Find Inner Peace

I abide in deep peace, and Christ is born in me.

As we prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus this Christmas season, we begin by making room for the Christ Spirit to be born anew in our own hearts. Jesus set the example for all humankind. He was not born into a world of peace, but rather, he brought his peace to the world.

As God's beloved child, I need not wait for the world around me to be peaceful before opening my heart and giving birth to the peace of God in me. Giving glory to God, I quiet my thoughts. In a moment of silent praise, I am filled with the peaceful Christ Presence. The Prince of Peace finds a home in my own heart. As I abide in deepest peace, heaven is established on earth, and Christ is born in me.

Jesus said to them again, "Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you."--John 20:21

Saturday, December 3, 2011

Let Go Let God Pray for Others

I behold the Christ in each person for whom I pray.
I begin my prayer for others by centering myself in the peace of God. From a consciousness of faith and peace of mind, I affirm: God is your help in every need.
As I pray for my dear ones, I hold an image of them in my mind that affirms the radiance of their being as a beloved child of God. If they are experiencing a health challenge, I behold them whole and well, functioning perfectly and enjoying life. If their need is financial, I envision them abundantly blessed, in the flow of God's good, with every need being met. If they are at a crossroads, I affirm they are being divinely guided along the path that is right for them.
With a faithful heart, I pray for others.
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 BE Carefree

I am carefree and joyful.
From time to time I may feel burdened and wish I could be a child again--carefree, unencumbered and full of joy. But regardless of my age or circumstances, I have the power to choose my attitude toward life at this moment, and I choose to be joyful.
Every time I choose thoughts that uplift and actions that inspire, I am expressing the joy of Spirit. Every time I trust in God and let go of worry and concern, I am embracing the joy of Spirit.
Like a child, I am adventurous and free. I am passionate about life. I am alive, alert and carefree. As I fully engage the joy of Spirit within me, my life is uplifted and my excitement and exuberance bless the world.
Let the little children come to me; do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs.--Mark 10:14

Let Go Let God Provide Healing

I radiate health in mind, body and spirit.
I may feel insignificant as I gaze at the vast expanse of a star-filled night or reflect upon the beauty and immensity of creation. But I, too, am a magnificently created expression of life. Each cell of my body is a universe of divine life and intelligence.
Although my well-being is enhanced by what I take into my body, healing is generated from the inside out. I turn within in prayer and meditation to affirm my health and wholeness at a cellular level. I cease all concern about what could be wrong with my body and affirm the renewal of vibrant life within me. As I hold a vision of myself radiant with life, I claim my true identity as a whole and healthy creation of God.
Then your light shall break forth like the dawn, and your healing shall spring up quickly. --Isaiah 58:8
