Let Go Let God Be Blessed

A generous heart blesses all.

Generosity nurtures our lives like the sun’s warmth nurtures tender buds to blossom. Blessed by the sun’s generous sharing of light, a beautiful expression of realized potential bursts free from containment. I am grateful for acts of generosity that have supported me in times of need. I have known the gift of an encouraging word or an unexpected opportunity, so I reciprocate and give to others. The more freely I give to life, the more freely life gives back to me. In return for the kindness I have received, I express loving-kindness to others. Just as a brilliantly colored flower evokes a smile, a kindness shared spurs appreciation. The cycle continues and all are blessed.
You will be enriched in every way for your great generosity.—2 Corinthians 9:11

Let Go Let God Provide Comfort

Divine love comforts my heart and soul.

The love of family, friends, and pets helps me feel cared for and supported. Beyond this, I am comforted in times of need by divine love pouring into me from the Source of life itself. I open my heart to let the love that is God fill and soothe me. I rest in the awareness that I am one with the peaceful presence of God. I am reassured knowing that divine love enfolds and infills me. I am comforted knowing the people and animals I love are safe in God’s care and keeping. Nothing can separate us from God. Nothing can separate us from God’s love. When my heart and soul need comforting, I relax into the presence of divine love, and I am at peace.
Neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come … will be able to separate us from the love of God.–Romans 8:38-39

Let Go, Let God

I am free as I let go and let God.

I accept this day as a gift as I walk with God through every moment, activity, challenge, and opportunity. My affirmation is from “The Prayer of Faith”: God is my help in every need. Remembering God in all I do, I am free from the burden of worry or fear. I let go of concern as I focus on the all-powerful, all-knowing presence that guides my way. I am free to express my innate talent, free to act from a foundation of wisdom, strength, and faith. I am free as I let go and let God. At the close of this day, I rest peacefully, my mind unencumbered. I am immersed in divine love. Help is always here when I relax, release my personal striving, and open myself to God.
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 with Passion

I demonstrate a spirit of life and zeal.

I am eager to serve God and others and be the best that I can be. I do this most fully when I love what I do and express that love in words and actions. When I am passionate about something, that passion shows in all I say and do. I excite and enliven others with my passion and allow it to carry me to new heights. My deepest desire is to demonstrate the spirit of God within—a spirit of life and zeal. Spirit within fuels my passion and spurs me to right action. I am encouraged and committed as I stay connected to the spirit of God through prayer. Prayer lights the fire within me. If my motivation lags, a moment of quiet prayer rekindles my passion and reignites my zeal.
Do not lag in zeal, be ardent in spirit, serve the Lord.—Romans 12:11

Let Go Let God in Divine Order

Divine order is established in my mind and in my life.

Disorder comes from disorderly thinking or a lack of proper planning. If I want to put my work or home life in order, clear thinking is necessary. The Universe operates in an orderly manner. With this in mind, I seek to align my thoughts and my life with divine order. Becoming still helps me accomplish this. So I take a few moments to meditate in the Silence. Divine laws are written on the hearts of humankind. In the Silence, my heart and mind open to the law of divine order. Through meditation and prayer, order is revealed. Returning to my day, I allow it to come into full expression. Divine order is established in my mind and in my life.
I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts.—Jeremiah 31:33

Let Go Let God in Self-Care

I lovingly care for myself.

Self-care is a way of life. Overall well-being is supported by good habits that nurture my spiritual, physical, mental, and emotional health. Caring for myself means making healthy and harmonious choices. When I take care of myself, I eat nutritious foods in appropriate amounts, enjoy restorative sleep, and keep my body and mind active and nimble. My body is a blessing from God. I listen to its needs and love it unconditionally. I feed my soul through meditation. Throughout the day, I consciously release worry and the urge to manage other people’s lives. I stay focused on maintaining my spiritual and emotional health. Spirit expresses through me perfectly when my life is in balance.
Your eye is the lamp of your body. If your eye is healthy, your whole body is full of light.—Luke 11:34

Let Go Let God with Convictions

The wisdom of God directs me for my highest good.

My beliefs and convictions are the foundation for how I live my life. Therefore, I align them with the Truth that is steadily being revealed to me by Spirit. I remain open to new insights and divine ideas in order to be a channel for good in the world. At times, I may need to think differently, to change convictions that were misguided. I trust the wisdom of God within to lead me in the right direction. I am God’s instrument of divine love and peace. Faith arises from my relationship with the God of my understanding. While God is the One Power and One Presence, each of us will experience that Power in our own unique way. I respect the beliefs of others and allow God to direct me for my highest good.
The faith that you have, have as your own conviction before God.—Romans 14:22

Let Go Let God with Inner Peace

The presence of God permeates my being.

The presence of God watches over me. Wherever I am, God is. These lines from the “Prayer for Protection” remind me that I am always in the presence of God—a presence that brings peace. As I pray, I go within to a sanctuary of peace and quietly commune with the Presence. My mind, body, and spirit are soothed. I let go of worry, fear, and doubt. Throughout the day, I easily return my awareness to the presence of God within, and I immediately become calm. From this place of peace, I reach out to others who are feeling anxious and allow God to express through me as peace, understanding, and empathy. I am always in the presence of God. I am always in the presence of peace.
He said, “My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”—Exodus 33:14

Let Go Let God Forgive

I express the love of God as forgiveness and acceptance.

I am not being the resourceful, joyful person I was created to be if I am burdened with self-condemnation or if I see myself as a victim of the actions of others. So I choose to free my heart and mind of ill feelings and resentment. Through forgiveness, I claim my freedom now. I forgive myself for any thought, word, or action that does not reflect my divine identity. I behold myself and others as creations of God. We are made in the image and likeness of God and are capable of understanding and expressing divine love. With love and compassion, I forgive. I move past any self-imposed barriers that have separated me from others. I welcome the opportunity to enjoy life fully and completely.
Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.—Matthew 6:12

Let Go Let God it is Summer

I am thankful for the sunlight of summer and the light of God in me.

For people living in the northern hemisphere, summer begins today, bringing warmer temperatures and longer days. It is a time for planting gardens, spending time outdoors, and enjoying favorite activities of the season. I am thankful for sunshine no matter what the season. I am nurtured by sunlight, as are crops growing in a farmer’s field. I rejoice in the glory of a blue-sky summer day. I am also grateful for the divine light that illumines me from within. No matter what time of year, no matter what season of my life, the light of God surrounds me, enfolds me, and illumines me.
Let there be lights in the dome of the sky to separate the day from the night; and let them be for signs and for seasons … to give light upon the earth.–Genesis 1:14-15

Let Go Let God for World Peace

Peace on earth begins with me.

Words from a familiar hymn remind me that I play an important role in contributing to world peace: “Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.” My first job is to treat myself with love and compassion. As I forgive myself and release the need to be perfect, I become less judgmental toward others. As I accept myself and others, I begin to acknowledge and appreciate new perspectives. I appreciate the rich diversity of individual differences. While we may express differently in our appearance, views, likes, and dislikes, we are interconnected. We are one. By opening my heart to acceptance and appreciation, I contribute to world peace.
May the God of steadfastness and encouragement grant you to live in harmony with one another, in accordance with Christ Jesus.—Romans 15:5

Let Go Let God in Balance

As I rest in God, I replenish my soul.

If I am hurrying and worrying about completing everything on my to-do list, slowing my pace may seem counterintuitive—yet slowing my pace calms me and brings me back to center. I pause from all that is calling for my attention and create a holy space within. As I move more consciously and breathe more deeply, I refuel my energy and replenish my soul—I rest in God. Just as the space between musical notes creates balance and harmony, so, too, does a moment of peace bring harmony to my soul. I rejoice in the right balance between doing and being. When I am ready to return to my tasks, I fulfill my obligations with efficiency and enthusiasm.
The Lord is good … he protects those who take refuge in him, even in a rushing flood.—Nahum 1:7

Let Go Let God in Simplicity

Love is my religion.

When asked to name the greatest commandment, Jesus said it was to love God and to love one’s neighbor as one’s self. The simplicity of this principle is profound. I love God. I am a wondrous part of the mystery, the order, the magnificence, and the dynamic dance of creating and re-creating that is God. With each thought of gratitude, my love for God deepens. I love the diversity of my brothers and sisters, each unique in their own way. I love the creative expressions of Spirit that we are and the gifts and attributes we are here to share. Each day we practice kindness and compassion, acceptance and forgiveness, we choose the path of love.
On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.—Matthew 22:40

Let Go Let God Provide Guidance

Answers come to me in the Silence.

I quench my thirst for understanding by drinking from the fountain of knowledge within me. I tap into this wellspring during times of reflection as I wait in stillness. Attuned to divine wisdom, I move beyond intellectual or ego-driven solutions. I release self-judgment about how much or how little I should know. I affirm the Truth: I am wise and knowledgeable; I know what I need to know. In the clarity of the Silence, any muddy thoughts blocking my guidance are cleared. An inner knowing emerges that is more sure and more sound than any false belief. Confident and clear about what is mine to do, I act on the guidance I receive and proceed with divine understanding.
The dawn from on high will break upon us, to give light to those who sit in darkness … to guide our feet into the way of peace.—Luke 1:78-79

Let Go Let God Provide a Father's Blessing

I bless my father and fathers everywhere.

When we think about fathers, we may imagine the ideal father—someone who is always available; eager to guide, teach, and assist; encouraging and supportive. Today I acknowledge the good that my father provided for me, the lessons he taught me, and the love he gave me. No one does everything perfectly all the time. Each father does the best he can with the knowledge and experience he has. I know I am a work in progress as well, even as I vow to become the best person I can be. Being a father is a sacred role. Fathers have the responsibility to provide a strong foundation from which their children will flourish and grow. Today I thank and bless my father and fathers everywhere.
Honor your father.—Matthew 15:4

Let Go Let God in Prosperity

The blessings of God fill my life, and I am prosperous.

My life is filled with unlimited prosperity. From the beauty of the earth, to the love of family and friends; from the opportunities that come my way, to the lessons I learn each day, my prosperity is assured. Prosperity is more than material possessions; it is also a state of mind. Prosperity is a realization that the blessings of God fill my life each day. I feel prosperous each time I awaken to the beauty of a sunrise or experience a surge of divine energy in mind and body. I feel prosperous each time I experience new ideas and a greater sense of well-being and confidence. I feel prosperous as I pray and recognize that I am a spiritual being. I am wonderfully prosperous!
May mercy, peace, and love be yours in abundance.—Jude 1:2

Let Go Let God in Beauty

I am one with the beauty of the universe.

I am a beautiful child of God, living in a beautiful world, filled with a beautiful spirit. Then I affirm these words, I behold myself as I truly am—a spiritual being, filled with the renewing life of God. My body is a holy temple; my mind is a powerful tool; my heart is an open vessel. I give thanks for the beauty of the world around me. From the smallest atom to the grandest mountain range—I know that beauty is divinely created, just as I am. When I remember the Truth of who I am, I feel the powerful spirit of God within me. I am a creative, confident person, blessed with the spirit to accomplish all that I believe is possible. I am the unique, beautiful person I am meant to be.
Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God shines forth.—Psalm 50:2

Let Go Let God Pray for Others

Uplifted in prayer, I affirm the highest good for all.

Through the power of prayer, I lift up my dear ones. Any time is the perfect time to visualize my family and friends vitally alive, enjoying the gift of life and living in harmony with each other and the world around them. Prayer is an easy gift to give. If something on the news catches my attention, I add it to my daily prayer. Looking beyond the images, I see healing unfolding and a divine plan for good being revealed. Nothing is beyond the power of God to restore, to re-create, and to resolve, so I give it all to God in prayer. I know that I am part of a vast spiritual community praying for one another with faith in the good that will result.
Pray for one another, so that you may be healed.—James 5:16

Let Go Let God in Healing

I radiate health, harmony, and wholeness.

Some say that healing happens in God’s time. I know that God’s time is continuous. Healing is occurring at every moment. As my physical body responds to its natural call to wholeness, healing is manifest. I cooperate with the harmonizing, regenerating energy of God radiating through me as health, harmony, and wholeness. If I am experiencing a time of dis-ease, I listen to my body and my inner guidance. I affirm divine life in my thoughts, words, and prayers. I get the rest and nutrition I need to support the divine healing work happening within me. I set aside impatience or frustration, and focus my energy on health and well-being. Healing is in progress this very moment.
I am going to bring it recovery and healing; I will heal them and reveal to them abundance of prosperity and security.—Jeremiah 33:6

Let Go Let God with Gratitude

I give thanks for all of life’s blessings.

A wise person once said that gratitude is the memory of the heart. My memories enrich my life as the days and years go by. I recall treasured memories that continue to enrich my soul. I choose to review my memory bank with gratitude. Recalling the kindness of others brings a smile to my face and lifts my spirits. I appreciate the people who have shared this life with me. My memories of good times and good people reveal the light of Spirit that shines unceasingly on us all. As I look back with gratitude for the loved ones and opportunities that have brought me great joy and fulfillment, I also enjoy the fullness of this present moment. Right now, I am making memories for the years to come.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.—Matthew 6:21

Let Go Let God in Action

God is at work in me.

I am a unique individual, and God is active in and through me. Through the power of free will, I choose the mold or pattern I desire. In so doing, I cocreate with God. My heart is lifted as I see the beauty of God’s world. My song is in tune with the rhythm of the Divine. My spirit was not meant to be earth-bound. As I walk upon the earth, I feel the pulse of divine life in every step. I am a part of the very soil that I tread. God is in all things—the earth, moon, and stars, in the distant and the near. I bless and praise the wonders of God’s creation. I see God in all people everywhere. The heartbeat of all humankind is the heart of the Divine. Thank you, God, that I am free to express the real me, which is a part of all that is good, which is one with you.
I will sing and make melody to the Lord.—Psalm 27:6

Let Go Let God Be Secure

All is well.
Everyone needs to feel safe, to have an inner assurance as well as an outer assurance of sustenance and security. Today I contemplate the promise of divine protection. When Jesus wanted to reassure his followers, he reminded them that God is present in all creation, even caring about the tiniest bird. This idea gives me comfort too. I am confident that the power and presence of God is protecting me in all ways. Any time I am concerned for others, I relax in the awareness that God is guiding my loved ones to peace and safety. I reinforce my sense of security through prayer, which deepens my conviction that all is well.
Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?—Matthew 6:26

Let Go Let God in Trust

I trust in God, and my life shapes up!

When a potter throws clay onto the wheel, he or she may not know if the finished piece will be a vase, a bowl, or a plate. Though the technique can be messy and the result uncertain, the potter trusts the process, giving the clay complete attention. The potter shapes and molds the clay with creativity and skill, watching the art take shape. Like a potter, I shape and mold the moments of my life. With a sense of creative wonder, I attend to each matter before me. If circumstances unexpectedly shift, I refocus on the Christ Presence within and return to my peaceful center. I trust in God, and though the outcome may be uncertain, I know my life is taking shape in a way that blesses and prospers me and others.
Happy are those who trust in the Lord.—Proverbs 16:20

Let Go Let God Be Free

I make healthy choices to be mentally and emotionally free!

Poor choices can lead to unhealthy habits or patterns that impede our spiritual growth. We may even unintentionally give away our personal power. If I become aware of such patterns in myself, I have the opportunity to reclaim my power and freedom. I visualize cutting the cords of false beliefs and destructive habits. I affirm: Limiting ideas and behaviors have no hold on me. I am mentally and emotionally free! As I learn from my missteps and apply these lessons in positive ways, I am free to be my best and most authentic self. I am empowered to interact with others in new ways. My newfound freedom supports appropriate and constructive choices.
The Lord is righteous; he has cut the cords of the wicked.—Psalm 129:4

Let Go Let God Exhale

I release what no longer serves me.

My lungs have a finite capacity. So to inhale more air, I must first exhale. Breathing is a continuous process of receiving and releasing. It exemplifies the ongoing ebb and flow of life. Exhaling and inhaling are essential for human life. As I exhale, carbon dioxide is released, which sustains other life forms. I breathe out what no longer serves me so I can take in the life-giving oxygen I need. All life is nourished by releasing the old and opening to the new. Today I contemplate what I am willing to release and what I am willing to embrace; what I am willing to give and what I am willing to receive. I open to the ebb and flow of life.
The Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life.—Genesis 2:7

Let Go Let God Be Wise

I am filled with the wisdom of Spirit.

When I claim that I am wise, I’m not boasting about something I think I have accomplished on my own. I know that wisdom comes from opening myself to the flow of Spirit. I am wise when I allow divine wisdom to express through me. Attuned to Spirit, I convey my beliefs and insights with love and respect. I speak and act in ways that uphold all people as beloved of God. Bringing together divine wisdom and good judgment, I do my best to make a positive difference and encourage the highest and best outcomes for myself and others. Gently and consistently, I choose words and actions that contribute to the well-being of all people.
Who is wise and understanding among you? Show by your good life that your works are done with gentleness born of wisdom.—James 3:13

Let Go Let God Through Growth

I am transformed.

Everywhere I look, I see life in transition. God is in every part of this ever-changing world, and God is within me as I grow and change. The books I read, the movies or shows I see, and the worship services I attend may provide insight and inspiration for my transformation, but the greatest influence is the presence of God within. The Presence nudges me to expand my view of life, to courageously step out of my comfort zone, and to respond to change with openness and enthusiasm. Life’s experiences spur my spiritual growth and teach me to rely on God’s guiding presence. With faith, I move through transition, and I am transformed.
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds.—Romans 12:2

Let Go Let God in Harmony

I praise every one of my relationships.

In the midst of conflict or misunderstanding, I may not realize the powerful tool I have to bring peace to every relationship. That tool is praise. Charles Fillmore wrote: “Turn the power of praise upon whatever you wish to increase. Give thanks that it is now fulfilling your ideal.” I turn the power of praise upon every relationship in my life. I praise the good I see in others and the good I do not see. I give thanks that the people in my life are interesting and unique, as each brings me new understanding and joy. I praise every opportunity to share with others. I give thanks that every relationship is continually growing into something greater. I behold the Christ in all, and see each person blessed with peace, love, and happiness. My life is in harmony.
Live in harmony with one another.—Romans 12:16

Let Go Let God with an Open Mind

With an open mind, I stretch to new dimensions of awareness.

Oliver Wendell Holmes said that a mind, once stretched, never regains its original dimensions. I allow my mind to be stretched as I think of all that God is. My open mind lets in the light of God to illuminate my perceptions and beliefs. I practice spiritual discernment, as I become aware that there is more to life than meets the eye. I see God in action—in a sunrise, in the face of a child, in my life’s work, and in all my activities. I see God in me in new ways. I am more forgiving and less judgmental. I am more accepting of others. I develop greater understanding by seeing from many perspectives. With an open mind, I stretch to new dimensions of spiritual awareness.
If any of you is lacking in wisdom, ask God, who gives to all generously and ungrudgingly, and it will be given you.—James 1:5

Let Go Let God Be Joyful

This is a good day, a joyous day.

I begin this day in a good mood. This is a great day, a joyous time to be alive. Every day can start this way when I remember the Psalmist’s words: “Joy comes with the morning.”
Yesterday’s disappointments have no power to cloud today. I can enjoy this new day; I can do my best; I can think creative thoughts; I can spread peace and goodwill wherever I go. Spending a few moments in prayer early in the morning sets the tone for the hours to come. When I become still, listen, and let my thoughts and feelings be Christ-directed, I ensure that it will be a good day. As I go about my activities, I have a spring in my step, a song in my heart, and a smile on my face. I am in a good mood, joyful, and expectant.
In the morning sow your seed.—Ecclesiastes 11:6
