Let Go Let God Rise Up!

I rise up and live again!

Following the example of Jesus, I move through life’s trials with strength and assurance. I need not fear the darkness, for my full faith is in God. I gather my strength and prepare for the resurrection of hope, light and life. Jesus rose from the tomb of darkness, and I will rise up as well. Sweeter is the sunrise following the darkest night. More magnificent is the view after climbing the highest mountain. Greater is the victory when I’ve tasted near defeat. Most joyous is resurrection from the depths of loss. I will roll away the stone of sorrow and open my heart to hope. Today I share the good news: The power of Christ Love within is greater than this world! Rise up and live again!
That same hour they got up and returned to Jerusalem … They were saying, “The Lord has risen!”—Luke 24:33, 34

Let Go Let God Be EasyGoing

I take an easygoing approach to life.

Young children view their world with intense curiosity. They focus on whatever is before them in the moment and then move on. Children are open to new adventures and respond to life with unbridled awe and joy. Today I reclaim this easygoing and adventurous outlook. I relax into the present moment and all that it holds. I release control over the outcome and delight in witnessing the creative ways things play out. As I experience the transforming power of letting go and trusting God, I realize the amazing gift of being present. I notice the diverse expressions of beauty in the world. I am easygoing as I enjoy the simple gift of life.
Live as children of light—for the fruit of the light is found in all that is good and right and true.—Ephesians 5:8-9

Let Go Let God in Forgiveness

The forgiving love of God expresses freely through my mind and heart.

In the healing power of forgiveness, sit for half an hour every night and mentally forgive everyone against whom you have any ill will or antipathy … see all things and all persons as they really are … and send them your strongest thoughts of love. Divine love and life are closely related, and forgiveness is an aspect of love. When I open my heart and mind to forgive and to love, I also open myself to life. When Jesus opened his heart to forgive, he opened the way to his resurrection and to eternal life. I let the forgiving love of God express freely through me, cleansing my mind through its power. God’s love fills my heart; God’s life fills my body.
Then Jesus said, “Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing.”—Luke 23:34

Let Go, Let God

I feel the peace and freedom of letting go and trusting God.

Pilots often describe the moment of take-off as a time of freedom when the plane defies gravity and literally releases its attachment to the earth. Pilots need a certain degree of courage to let go and trust the plane’s aerodynamics to function properly and fly. Similarly, I need a degree of courage to let go and have faith in God as the active power in my life. To reach that level of trust, I remember moments in my life when I felt God’s presence guiding and blessing me. I look at the life of Jesus and see the strength of surrender, trusting in God. I let go and trust that what has been demonstrated in the past will continue to demonstrate in my life. My faith enables me to let go and trust in God.
Be strong and of good courage.—1 Chronicles 28:20

Let Go Let God Take Action

When called to sacred service, I take action.

When I feel called to help others, I can talk the talk or walk the walk. I choose to walk the walk, and my first step is always toward God. In prayer, my mind is receptive to guidance, my heart fills with love and my course of action becomes clear. I do for others what I would want done for me. Others also feel the divine calling, and through this common bond, we join in sacred service. The spark of divinity grows within us and compassion warms our hearts. As we offer help, we behold those we’re serving as already whole and complete. Each one of us is a spiritual being, growing in awareness of our God-given potential. Today I take action, and I am blessed.
Little children, let us love, not in word or speech, but in truth and action.—1 John 3:18

Let Go Let God Provide Freedom

Releasing any thought of limitation, I am free.

I celebrate the breakthroughs in my life when freedom comes rushing in, as when the Israelites successfully crossed the Red Sea—free at last from the bonds of slavery.
For 40 years before the Israelites reached the Promised Land, Moses led them as they wandered through the desert. At times, I may feel lost on my own journey. During times of change—a new job, relationship or living situation—I may need to break free of bonds that bind me. As I let go of feelings of unworthiness or inadequacy and release shame or guilt, I claim my freedom. Nothing can keep me from being all I was created to be. I am whole and I am free!
I will take you as my people, and I will be your God. You shall know that I am the Lord your God, who has freed you from the burdens of the Egyptians.—Exodus 6:7

Let Go Let God in World Peace

World peace begins with the awareness of oneness.

Peace begins when we recognize God in all creation regardless of where or how we live. When we appreciate our differences, celebrate our likenesses, and acknowledge our oneness, we are taking initial steps toward world peace. People living in different nations may see things from their individual vantage points; yet, we can still coexist in harmony. Respect and cooperation foster understanding. Encouraging ingenuity boosts progress for all people. Everyone benefits when we find “win-win” solutions to social, economic and ecological challenges. When we see rightly, we know we are one with each other and with God. This is the beginning of world peace.
In his days may righteousness flourish and peace abound.—Psalm 72:7

Let Go Let God this is Palm Sunday

I am blessed by God’s ever-present goodness.

As I move through my day, I celebrate God’s guiding presence in my life. I set an intention to focus on the light of God, for I know that in dark times the right path is illumined for me. God’s love and light fill my heart and mind. Jesus taught that the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand, and I claim a Heavenly state of mind. I think only of God’s peace, joy, love and abundant goodness. Feelings of doubt, fear or worry are overcome by the power of divine ideas. Any concerns about a current challenge dissipate as I celebrate God’s ever-present goodness. I put God first, and I am enfolded in God’s love. My life is blessed in countless ways.
They took branches of palm trees and went out to meet him, shouting, “Hosanna! Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord.”—John 12:13

Let Go Let God be Grace

I flourish in the grace of God and my life blossoms.

With its delicate petals arched toward the sun, a lotus plant blossoms into a gorgeous flower though its roots reside in muddy water. Like the lotus, I may be entrenched in a murky situation but, through the power of grace, I, too, can flourish. In the stillness of Silence, I cultivate serenity. I am rooted in Spirit—the foundation from which all blessings unfold. Just as the petals of the lotus flower rise above the water, I lift my vision above the horizon of any murky challenge or disquieting change. Centered in my “lotus heart,” I am confident that good will blossom from any challenge.
I lift up my eyes to the hills—from where will my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.—Psalm 121:1-2

Let Go Let God Pray for Others

God is in the midst of those I love.

When someone dear to me is in need, I can help him or her through prayer. The power of faith and understanding is great. It frees my mind of fear and anxiety about the one for whom I pray. I take my eyes off the problem and focus on the spirit of God within. No matter how serious the condition or how hopeless my loved one may feel, the spirit of God is within them. I hold my dear one in heart and mind. I see the indwelling life of God as strength, energy and courage. I send my faith and love to anyone in need, affirming that their spirit will be uplifted. I give thanks, for God is in the midst of all, and all is well.
The prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise them up; and anyone who has committed sins will be forgiven.—James 5:15

Let Go Let God in Healing

I am a perfect expression of divine wholeness.

Perfection and wholeness are hallmarks of my spiritual nature. When I recognize divine life as my true identity, I release error beliefs about my physical health. In Truth, I am more than my body! I am created from and filled with a divine life force more potent than any imbalance, diagnosis or prognosis. To support the healing process, I call forth the divine wisdom intrinsic to every cell, system and function of my body. I use powerful affirmative words and positive thoughts to imprint my consciousness with life-sustaining health. I am one with the flawless expression of Divine Life, swiftly restoring me to wholeness now.
Be attentive to my words … For they are life to those who find them, and healing to all their flesh.—Proverbs 4:20-22

Let Go Let God in Birth

Today is a new beginning. I am filled with hope and promise!

Springtime brings new birth—a beautiful reminder of the activity of God! Whether it is a sprout emerging from the soil, bursting into the light; a bird chipping out of the egg it once called home; or a baby taking its first breath, life is always unfolding. A newborn baby or a seedling for a mighty oak may seem weak and fragile, yet each is filled with immense potential. Likewise, I am filled with promise and potential, and I let this day be a fresh start. As I release self-limiting thoughts and behaviors, I am reborn. Divine ideas seem to come to me from out of the blue. I am filled with hope as I breathe in the fresh air of this new day and feel fully alive.
In fulfillment of his own purpose he gave us birth by the word of truth, so that we would become a kind of first fruits of his creatures.—James 1:18

Let Go Let God Have Faith

I expect the best.

Sometimes the concept of faith seems too difficult or abstract to comprehend. How can I believe in what I cannot see? Then I remember all the other unseen forces in my life: I trust I will take the next breath, the sun will rise tomorrow, and a planted seed will grow.
Faith means “to live by.” It means calling forth the power of Life to sustain me through any situation. Faith begins with the belief that Life will bring the best for me. Even though my faith at times may be as small as a mustard seed, Life is on my side, helping me grow and succeed. My faith is unshakable, for I know a divine and perfect outcome will be revealed.
Then Jesus answered her, “Woman, great is your faith! Let it be done for you as you wish.” And her daughter was healed instantly.—Matthew 15:28

Let Go Let God with Inner Peace

The peace of God lives in the quiet of my heart.

In the quiet of early morning, I enter into the Silence of prayer. I feel the serenity and goodness of God within me in that moment of infinite calm. As I begin my day, I am not at odds with anyone, anything or any condition. I am strengthened in divine peace and empowered to bring peace and love to others. The will to love others is God expressing through me. This love touches the people who share life’s journey with me. During the busiest hours of the day, I think with the calm mind of early morning and act according to my faith. My gentle spirit is a balm that overcomes any disturbance. The peace I feel and share is the peace of God.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.—John 14:27

Let Go Let God Provide Prosperity

God is my prosperity.

The inexhaustible substance of God is our source of abundant supply. While social status and physical possessions come and go, God is unchanging. Material belongings, while enjoyable, are not the true measure of prosperity. Knowing God as infinite source is the key to abundant consciousness. I strengthen my awareness of God as source by giving thanks for all I have, all I receive, and all I give. Rather than affirming lack, I bless all I have and use it wisely. In the flow of infinite abundance, I give with joy and receive with gratitude.
Riches and honor are with me, enduring wealth and prosperity.–Proverbs 8:18

Let Go Let God in Harmony

Peace and harmony prevail within these walls.

An atmosphere of peace, harmony and happiness can be created in any environment, and it can start with one person. If my environment does not feel happy or uplifting, I use the power of prayer to create change. As I establish harmony and peace within, it ripples out and affects my environment. I affirm: God’s blessings rest upon this household. Peace and harmony prevail within these walls. My home—whether a house, an apartment or a single room—is affected by my prayers and blessings. All who live with me and all who enter my home will sense the presence of love and peace. We live, move and have our being in God. Wherever we make our home is holy, and God’s blessings rest upon it.
Peace be within your walls.—Psalm 122:7

Let Go Let God be Protected

I trust in God within.

Living in the light of God, I need not fret over every move and decision I make. I need not be on the lookout for what might go wrong. I am free from worry for God’s protection is ever-present. I bring to mind a past experience of grace—perhaps I was spared an accident or detrimental outcome. I was protected without my conscious vigilance or worry, and all was well. This memory brings comfort and encourages me to trust God.
My faith keeps me attuned to wisdom and helps me to use good judgment. I am confident I will know when to take a different course or change my plans. I rest assured that the power of God’s indwelling presence protects me.
You will be protected and take your rest in safety.–Job 11:18

Let Go Let God with Attitude

With a positive attitude and a willing heart, I experience God’s good.

Attitude is everything! My attitude influences the course of my life. I have the power to decide—every moment—how to regard the people and situations in my life and which attitude and actions will serve me best moving forward. Within me is the ability to be happy and fulfilled. Knowing this, I choose to have a happy attitude today and experience life to the fullest. I choose to be fearless, no matter what I am experiencing. I look beyond appearances and embrace life with gratitude. I choose to be optimistic about the future and open to experiencing God’s good in greater measure. My attitude is everything, for it helps me create a better reality for myself and others.
Let us choose what is right; let us determine among ourselves what is good.—Job 34:4

Let Go Let God with My Best

I live from the Christ-center of my being.

I know better than to compare myself or my accomplishments with those of others, either favorably or unfavorably. Doing my best is a personal and sacred matter. With my mind centered in the Christ within, I focus on my own behavior and attitudes. As I dedicate myself to achieving my Christ potential, I may be surprised with all I can accomplish. I discover the joy and power of living from the strength of Christ within, every day in every way. I am unlimited as I boldly move beyond my comfort zone on matters large and small. Within me lie all the wisdom and capabilities I need to be successful. I am confident of the good results that come from the Christ spirit expressing through me.
Jesus decided to go to Galilee. He found Philip and said to him, “Follow me.”—John 1:43

Let Go Let God Provide Comfort

In every moment, my loved ones are divinely cared for.

The people I care about show strength and faith in their daily lives. Yet we all have times of stress, sadness, anxiety or unease. When my loved ones are grieving a loss or experiencing a change, I gently remind them that they are not alone, for within them is the strength of God. Within them is the ability to overcome any situation or setback. Within them is a resiliency greater than any challenge, for within them is divine power, providing strength and courage in times of need. God’s comforting strength is within the people I love every moment. I remind them of this truth, and see them filled with peace and assurance.
The Lord stood by me and gave me strength.—2 Timothy 4:17

Let Go Let God Provide Guidance

Spirit guides me in the fulfillment of my dreams.

I may be sure of my desired destination—my dreams and goals—but unsure how to reach them. Rather than drifting like a ship without a rudder, hoping to eventually reach the shore, I set a clear course using the tools available. The most powerful tool I have is prayer. Just as a ship captain uses the stars to guide him, I turn to the wisdom and inspiration of Spirit within to steer me. Divine guidance is my inner compass. I trust it and follow its direction. I may consult trusted advisors and listen carefully to their comments. A new and unforeseen route may unfold. Inner guidance and wise counsel help me reach my destination with ease and grace.
The Lord will guide you continually, and satisfy your needs in parched places.—Isaiah 58:11

Let Go Let God You Are Blessed

I am the blessed child of my Creator.

In the moment I became an idea in Divine Mind, I was blessed. I do not have to earn my blessings; they are my birthright. In gratitude, I open my eyes to the many blessings in my life. My Creator loves me, guides me and provides for me. When I feel weak, I find a message to strengthen me. When sorrow is a burden too heavy to carry, I realize I am not alone. My body is a wondrous vehicle for my unique expression of Spirit, nourished by the abundance around me and healed by perfect Life within. My heart sings a song only my God can hear. No one can withhold my blessings, for they are divinely rendered. With thanksgiving in my heart, I am blessed.
Male and female he created them, and he blessed them and named them “Humankind” when they were created.—Genesis 5:2

Let Go Let God Be Caring

I am grateful to walk this path with you.

Today I send this message to someone who loves and supports me: Beloved, I am grateful to walk this sacred path with someone as caring as you. I feel your support through the hard times in my life as you listen with an open heart. You are a compassionate expression of God. You see me as I truly am—not broken or diminished, but strong at my core. I feel your faith in me when you empathize and laugh with me, when you partner with me in prayer. I feel your caring nature every time you bless me with love and remind me I am not alone. Your wise and reassuring words are encouraging. Spurred by your caring presence, I know I will not only survive, I will thrive!
Love one another deeply from the heart.—1 Peter 1:22

Let Go Let God in Divine Order

I begin with God and all is in order.

Counting is the first demonstration of order we learn as children, and when we count, we always begin with one. To align with divine order in my life, I begin with one—One Power, One Presence, One Spirit—God. I turn my attention to the One Source for healing, abundance, comfort and peace. Immersed in the pure presence of Being, I am inspired to take action. New ideas are planted in the fertile soil of my imagination. Spirit guides me to cast out what I need to release and tend what I need to nurture. With new clarity, I see what I have learned from past experiences. I trust God to reveal the wisdom of the present moment. Nothing is out of place. Just as when I count, I begin with One and all is in order.
In the beginning was the Word.—John 1:1

Let Go Let God Be Nourished

I am well-nourished, physically and spiritually.

My body is sustained by proper nutrition. Healthy food and activities, clean air and water—these energize me physically and keep my mind sharp. A healthy lifestyle helps me confidently manage the changes and challenges in my life. Yet I am also nourished in ways beyond the physical; I am strengthened and energized by spiritual nourishment. Prayer and meditation keep me attuned to the workings of God in and through me. Inspirational reading and music illumine my mind. I cultivate a loving heart by engaging in life with love, energy and passion. Well-nourished, physically and spiritually, I view every challenge as an opportunity for growth and greet life with strength and resolve.
One does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.—Matthew 4:4

Let Go Let God Be Fearless

I am fearless, for God is always with me and within me.

My awareness of God’s presence is the foundation of my faith. It supports and inspires me to live fully, confidently and fearlessly. As I awaken from a restful night’s sleep, my first thoughts are of gratitude for God’s abiding presence through the night and for the dawning of a new day replete with potential. I welcome the adventure that is my life. I express my ideas and interact with others openly, with self-assurance. I carry out my plans confidently. If I need to redirect, retool or start anew, I face the challenge without fear, for God is with me and within me. At the close of the day, I give thanks for the presence of God supporting me every step of the way.
It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you … Do not fear.–Deuteronomy 31:8

Let Go Let God in Timing

My good is revealed in divine timing.

It is said that timing is everything—in relationships, career, finances and more. So I choose not to struggle with or force circumstances in life. I know the time will be right when I feel a nudge from Spirit within to move in a new direction. I pay attention to my intuition, knowing that inner wisdom and divine understanding direct me rightly. I have learned what happens when I disregard my inner compass. Acting too soon or too late may result in misunderstandings and lost opportunities. But not this time! This time I wait patiently for clear direction and follow my inner guidance, knowing I will be guided to the right and perfect action at the right and perfect time.
See, now is the acceptable time; see, now is the day of salvation!—2 Corinthians 6:2

Let Go Let God Practice

I cherish my time of communion with God.

At times my prayer and meditation practice may seem stagnant or monotonous. But then I remember that communing with my God-essence is the most important thing I do each day. The practice of prayer and meditation is a muscle that needs regular exercise. An athlete consistently trains for competition, and in the process achieves endurance, form and strength. In the same way, my strong prayer practice increases my capacity to connect consciously with the essence of All That Is. I am one with my source of inner peace and inspiration, clarity and assurance. As I tap in to the Divine in prayer, I know my way will be made clear. I am grateful for the practice of communing with my Creator.
Put these things into practice, devote yourself to them, so that all may see your progress.—1 Timothy 4:15

Sunday, March 3, 2013

Let Go Let God with Energy

I am divine energy expressing as vitality and life.

God created me with the physical, mental and spiritual capacity to live a fulfilling and meaningful life. Whether I am active or resting, I am vitally alive. While my body rests, my mind may dream of my next endeavor. When I’m physically active, my mind clears as I focus on the task at hand. In the Silence of prayer and meditation, I still my body and mind, tapping into the Source of strength and energy within. No thought or distraction interferes with the flow of energy in and through me. I am recharged physically, mentally and spiritually. At work, at play, and at rest, I channel my energy into activities that bring joy to myself and others. Energized by Spirit within, I live an abundant life.
I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.—John 10:10

Saturday, March 2, 2013

Let Go Let God in Authenticity

I am a unique expression of Spirit.

Young David faced Goliath wearing a simple shepherd’s shirt and armed with only a sling. He refused the king’s armor and was clothed in faith. No matter what I face today, I know I have everything I need. I am a unique inlet and outlet for Spirit’s expression of love, compassion, wisdom and courage. I listen for Spirit’s guidance and move confidently in that direction. I do not need to look, act or sound like anyone else to be successful. I need no special clothing or training to be more of who I am. My weight, height, age and skin are perfect for me. I do my best to be all God created me to be, for I know I am fully capable, entirely unique and wholly deserving.
David said to the Philistine, “You come to me with sword and spear and javelin; but I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts.”—1 Samuel 17:45

Let Go Let God with Joy

My life is filled with joy.

When I desire greater happiness, I choose actions and activities that cultivate joy. I allow praise, gratitude and positivity to become my daily companions. I build a strong circle of family and friends and support them by being cheerful and uplifting, encouraging and supportive. In turn, they encourage me. My joy grows as I share it with others. It is like the contagion of laughter—when one person feels joyful, others catch that spirit and the joy spreads. Joy is a state of mind that can be nurtured and strengthened. Joyful thoughts, words and actions open the way for the energizing spirit of God to fully express in every aspect of my life. I feel vibrantly alive as I fill my life with joy.
He will yet fill your mouth with laughter, and your lips with shouts of joy.—Job 8:21
