Let Go Let God Bloom

Spiritual ideas bloom in my heart.

When I hear about spiritual ideas such as love, generosity, and compassion, it is as if a seed has been planted in my mind. Just as a flower seed needs sun, rain, and time to take root, I nurture these divine ideas in prayer and meditation, and my understanding grows.
Like the sun warms a seedling, the light of Spirit illuminates my mind. Just as the cooling rains quench the earth’s thirst, the love of God nurtures me. I tap into the light and love of God in the silence of meditation. Through prayer, I remove the weeds of error thoughts, and let them go. Spiritual ideas blossom in my life as bright and beautiful flowers. I am blessed.
What was sown on good soil, this is the one who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit.—Matthew 13:23

Let Go Let God Have Dominion

My faith lies with the ever-present power of God.

In Spirit and in Truth there is only one power, the power of good, the power of God. At times, the world may seem to have dominion and authority; there may seem to be a power in the external; there may appear to be more than God, but it is not so. There is only One Power and One Presence. It is the Power that gives us Life. It is All That Is. When we understand this, no so-called “power” in the world can prevail. God is the energy that enlivens us, the sole power that impels us to understanding, health, peace, order, harmony, love, joy, and prosperity. God is the power behind our own self-mastery. We cannot fail when we draw our power from the Divine.
You have given them dominion over the works of your hands.—Psalm 8:6

Let Go Let God in Wonder

I am amazed at God’s good.

Wonder reflects a sense of reverence for all of life. I am filled with wonder as I gaze at a drop of rain perched on a leaf or behold the first ray of sunlight over the horizon at dawn. I expand my sense of wonder by taking nothing for granted. I am captivated as I contemplate the world we live in. Each breath is a miracle­—an intricate collaboration between the cells of my body and nature. Gravity holds me securely to Mother Earth, yet the birds fly with ease in the sky above. I am immersed in awe and gratitude for what God can do. Whether a tiny baby or a majestic mountain; a grain of sand or a work of art—the creative activity of God is on display within and around me.
God has done this, so that all should stand in awe before him.—Ecclesiastes 3:14

Let Go Let God with Love

I speak the language of love, and I am blessed.

No words are needed to express or experience love. I share love through a smile, a wave, or by giving of my time and resources. I express love through a gentle hug or by listening to someone in need. I experience love through my relationships and through communion with God. The language of love is all around me, filling my life with unending joy. Today I let God’s love inspire and guide me. I live in the love of God, and I am courageous, compassionate, and peaceful. I dedicate this day to the love of God. In all situations, it is my guiding light. Any problem is solved when I respond in love and serve as a beacon of love in the world.
By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.—John 13:35

Let Go Let God Restore Harmony

I welcome harmony in my life.

In music, dissonance is resolved by moving to a consonant chord. I sometimes may experience dissonance or conflict in my relationships. In the same way that I move my fingers to different keys on the piano, I can shift my words or actions or change my perspective to invoke harmony. If I believe I lack the tools to resolve the issue, I open my heart to God and pray: Here is the situation. How can I see it differently? What can I learn? I surrender it all to the presence of God within me and listen for inner guidance and direction. As I let go of conflict, I learn that every situation is a lesson in love. I learn how to respond mindfully, and my relationships are restored to peace and harmony.
Clothe yourselves with love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.—Colossians 3:14

Let Go Let God Provide Comfort

God is my all in all.

It is possible to be alone yet not lonely; to feel down but not out; to experience loss and recover. All is possible because the spirit of God fills me with a steady stream of comfort and love. If I experience loss or a broken heart, I invite the love of God to heal me. Divine love is powerful in restoring my body, mind, and spirit. If I am grieving, I trust in the promise of Spirit’s comfort and restoration. I recall the story of Job, who went from having everything to losing everything—possessions, friendships, social status, and health. Eventually, God restored it all to Job, even beyond what had been lost. I trust in God within to restore me to wholeness. The ups and downs in life are temporary, but God’s love is constant and sure.
Remember, I am with you always.—Matthew 28:20

Let Go, Let God

I hand my worries over to the power of God within.

I may wish I could guide and control the actions of others—yet trying to do so leads to frustration. My intentions may be good, but the choices and decisions of my loved ones are not mine to make. What I can do instead is let go—let go and let God. I let go of my need to be in charge and allow God’s love to shine through. I let go of any fear, anger, or doubt I may be experiencing, and in the process, I set myself free. As I release my concerns, giving each one over to God, divine energy surges through me and I am filled with serenity, strength, and encouragement. God is in the midst of every situation, and all is well. Today, one step at a time, I let go and let God.
Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.—Philippians 4:6

Let Go Let God with Family

I celebrate my unity with all life.

In childhood, my notion of family might have stretched no further than my relatives. At some point, I may have widened my concept of family to include friends and members of my spiritual community. I might also consider my neighbors and coworkers to be family, as well as any beloved pets or animals. As I mature in my understanding of All That Is, I see that I am one with all of life. I celebrate my unity with all living beings. All people have the spirit of God within them. If I have been excluding anyone from my circle of respect, honor, and care, I now open my heart to Spirit within and embrace them as family.
So we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually we are members one of another.—Romans 12:5

Let Go Let God with a Divine Idea

I am open and receptive to the manifestation of divine ideas.

All creation comes from Divine Mind as divine ideas. I consciously connect with the mind of God to create in my own life. The divine ideas that flow through me spur wonderful experiences and blessings. Once I conceive an idea and imagine its fulfillment, I act in cooperation with the all-powerful, all-loving, all-wise spirit of God within me to bring the idea to fruition. Creation is a divine process that is always at work. I stay aware, open, and receptive to divine ideas that arise in my mind. I focus on what is good, loving, and healthy, and in cooperation with the indwelling Spirit, I bring forth wonderful blessings for myself, my loved ones, and the world.
Decide on a matter, and it will be established for you, and light will shine on your ways.—Job 22:28

Let Go Let God Have Faith

My faith rests in God within.

Faith is not based on statistics or facts or what I perceive through my senses. Faith is “the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” It comes from confidence in the presence and power of God within. If I have succumbed to fear or worry, I consider the teachings of Jesus: “Have faith in God.” As I align my thoughts in accordance with this simple yet powerful teaching, my attitude shifts. I am uplifted, confident, and assured. I choose to place my trust in God—in Divine Love and Wisdom. In any situation, I focus on what I know to be true and unwavering—the presence of God—and I am assured that all is well.
Jesus answered them, “Have faith in God.”–Mark 11:22

Let Go Let God Be Grateful

With a grateful heart, I turn to God in prayer.

I take time each morning and, again, at night to thank God for my many blessings. This powerful prayer practice helps me maintain an open and grateful heart. As I focus on my blessings, my heart is infused with the light, life, and love of God. Every area of my life is enhanced. I am relaxed, renewed, and uplifted. I am filled with faith, expectation, and hope. In the morning, gratitude sets my perspective for the day ahead. In the evening, a prayer of thanksgiving carries me into a restful sleep. When I awaken the next day, I am refreshed, ready for what’s next, alert and receptive to more blessings to come!
I am grateful to God—whom I worship with a clear conscience, as my ancestors did—when I remember you constantly in my prayers night and day.—2 Timothy 1:3

Let Go Let God in this Season

I am grateful for this season of my life.

Each season has its own distinct character and purpose—dormancy in winter, budding in spring, growth in summer, release in autumn. Each season is dependent on the others occurring in their natural order. Our lives, too, have seasons. We move through infancy, childhood, adulthood, and maturity experiencing constant change. Each season brings its unique joys and challenges, and each builds on the one before it. In Ecclesiastes we read, “For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.” I am grateful for this season of my life, for the changes and growth it brings, for the rest and activity. With each season, I grow into the fullness of my humanity.
They are like trees planted by streams of water, which yield their fruit in its season … In all that they do, they prosper.—Psalm 1:3

Let Go Let God Provide Guidance

The spirit of God guides me home.

This month the swallows will arrive at their summer nesting grounds in and around Mission San Juan Capistrano in California. Then in October, the flock will take flight once more for its annual migration to Argentina. The swallows’ inner guidance leads them safely through this journey every year. Like these little birds, I have reliable inner guidance to help me navigate my journey through life. I need not fear losing my way. I have constant access to divine wisdom, judgment, and understanding. If ever I feel lost, I call upon Spirit for direction. In moments of stillness, I listen. The spirit of God in my heart and mind always guides me home.
I will turn the darkness before them into light, the rough places into level ground. These are the things I will do, and I will not forsake them.—Isaiah 42:16

Let Go Let God Provide Healing

I am one with Divine Life.

My body is a divine creation. Every cell and system works together in perfect harmony to function exactly as I need it to. I thank God for the healing power always at work in me. I praise every part of my body, for it was created with an innate ability to heal and restore.
If I experience illness, I acknowledge the condition or diagnosis without identifying with it or claiming it as my own. It is not who I am. I affirm my identity as a spiritual being, one with Divine Life. I claim my truth: I am healthy, whole, and well. Well-being is my divine inheritance, and by my faith, I am made whole.
Jesus said to him, “Go; your faith has made you well.” Immediately he regained his sight.—Mark 10:52

Let Go Let God Be Free

I am free to express my Christ Nature.

Anchored in Truth, I am not swayed by the tide of worldly opinion. The media may choose to focus on limitation, fear, strife, and discord. I choose to stay centered in divine power and wisdom. I speak and act in congruence with the Christ in me. No matter what is happening in the world, I focus on Spirit and Truth. The Christ within provides comfort, strength, guidance, and freedom. I stand strong and confident, knowing that all is well. Divine love releases me from fear. Divine understanding and wisdom guide me to peace and assurance. I journey boldly through life, freely expressing God’s goodness, peace, light, and love.

To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you.—Colossians 1:27

Let Go Let God with Nonresistance

Nonresistance delivers me to peace and power.

Resistance: We may think it refers to arguments or physical altercations, but more commonly, resistance is mental. We often resist circumstances, people, or beliefs we find difficult to accept. We are resisting whenever we oppose, criticize, or resent. However, nonresistance is infinitely more powerful. Nonresistance is not mere tolerance; it is integrity that offers no opposition. We look for similarities, not differences. We have no enemies, because we are not an enemy. When my mind seeks agreement, agreement becomes possible. I may not immediately see the solution, but I can be willing to see it. This act of nonresistance is the manifestation of the Divine in me. As I practice it, peace flows through me, from me, and to me.
Do not resist an evildoer.—Matthew 5:39

Let Go Let God in Belonging

I belong to the community of humanity.

I am a member of many communities—my neighborhood, work, church, family, and friends as well as the community of humanity. Each relationship reminds me of the value of being connected with others. The life of a community is richer and healthier as each person practices thoughtfulness, kindness, and understanding. These practices foster happiness and peace. I am spiritually one with all people. As I acknowledge the divine in every member of my community, I also recognize the Christ Spirit in me. Aware of the Christ within, I act in ways that contribute to the good of all. I work together with others to accomplish goals great and small.
Peace be to the whole community, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.—Ephesians 6:23

Let Go Let God When Emerging

Life emerges from within in perfect order.

On the branch of a cherry tree, swelling buds are ready to burst into blossom in perfect order. In much the same way, I am growing and emerging into what I am created to be. I am filled with life and great expectations! Each life experience is an occasion for me to learn and grow, to discover that which is within me, ready to bloom. With gratitude, I bless the countless opportunities I have to grow in health, relationships, and spiritual awareness, and to express myself more fully and completely. Through me, God’s perfect order finds expression. I listen carefully to my inner voice of wisdom and embrace each new opportunity as it unfolds in perfect divine order.
For God alone my soul waits in silence, for my hope is from him.—Psalm 62:5

Let Go Let God with Potential

My life reflects the power of God in me.

We are human in form, divine in expression, and limitless in potential. If I ever think I am unworthy or not good enough, I replace those thoughts with the truth of my innate perfection. I am a whole and unique expression of God. As I affirm this truth, I am filled with renewed strength and energy. I claim my divine nature, knowing that because I am made in the image and likeness of God, I am inherently good and worthy. My actions reflect a quiet confidence in the presence of God in me. I am a spiritual being having a human experience. My life is a continual unfoldment of my divine potential.
They are to do good, to be rich in good works, generous, and ready to share … so that they may take hold of the life that really is life.—1 Timothy 6:18-19

Let Go Let God Forgive

I find peace through forgiveness.

After feeling hurt or wronged by another person, I may wonder, “How could they do that?” When I am upset, I may seek answers, believing answers will ease my pain. Yet peace comes not through logic or reason, but through spiritual understanding. While I may never know how or why something happened, I can always find peace through forgiveness. Shifting my awareness from the situation, softly breathing in Spirit, I focus on my heart space. I ask my Higher Power for understanding. As I release defensiveness or blame, the healing love of God frees me and all concerned from this experience. I choose to forgive and my mind and heart are at peace.
Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me.—Psalm 51:10

Let Go Let God Pray for Others

I pray for others, knowing they are loved and protected.

I hold my loved ones in prayer today remembering that, no matter what may be happening in their lives, they are divinely supported and their needs are met. The kingdom of God is their abundant supply. There is only One Presence and One Power in the Universe—God the good. The power of God lives in each of us. I see my loved ones joyfully experiencing the power and presence of God in their lives. As we walk through this life together, we each express the divine in our own unique way. Appreciating this truth, I send love to every living being on planet Earth.
I pray that you may have the power to comprehend, with all the saints, what is the breadth and length and height and depth … so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.—Ephesians 3:18-19

Let Go Let God Be Brave

I bravely surrender to God’s will in my life.

Bravery can mean acting boldly and fearlessly, but it can also mean trusting God’s will in my life even when I don’t know where that might lead. Like the skydiver who surrenders bravely to a free fall, as I trust in God, I am assured my parachute will open. If I feel inner resistance, I am not discouraged. I meditate on the truth of God’s love and have faith. Releasing my concern, I remember all the times I resisted a situation that later yielded good results. I audaciously surrender to the wisdom of God within me. I know there may be a free fall—a period of uncertainty—but as I let go and let God, I land safely in new territory.
Those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.—Psalm 9:10

Sunday, March 9, 2014

Let Go Let God in World Peace

I am an ambassador of peace in the world.

Ambassadors of peace practice love, kindness, and patience. Because I know the way I view others affects my interactions with them, I focus on the peace and presence of God in each person I meet. My thoughts, words, and actions reflect the love of God within.
In meditation, I center my thoughts on peace. I move consciously toward being a peaceful presence in the world as I fully embrace this divine power. I may not be in a position of worldly power, but I have the power of love within me. Love is uplifting. Love fosters harmony and peace. I am an ambassador of peace, making a difference in the world through conscious acts of loving-kindness.
Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.—Psalm 34:14

Let Go Let God for Grace

I make room for God’s grace.

Some days I may feel stuck in negativity. I may wallow in complaint or find my mind fixed on a certain story, belief, or plan that has me feeling troubled. In such instances, my mind has no room for divine ideas, nor is it receptive to the wisdom and inspiration of Spirit. As I gently dismiss limiting thoughts and claim the truth of Spirit’s bountiful good, I make room for God’s grace in my life. I recognize that abundance, vitality, and well-being are already present within me. I let go of any preconceptions of what my good should look like and embrace the fullness of God’s good as it is expressing right now. An abundant, grace-filled life is already mine.
You have stripped off the old self with its practices and have clothed yourselves with the new self.—Colossians 3:9-10

Friday, March 7, 2014

Let Go Let God in Prosperity

I am living a prosperous life.

To consistently live a prosperous life, I infuse my mind with appreciation for the gifts of God. Every thought is a seed. As I plant seeds of gratitude and abundance in my consciousness, I cultivate an awareness that there is always enough. Blessings pour into my life. I am a creative soul expressing from the current of divine substance and ideas. From this richness, I claim prosperity in every area of my life. I affirm meaningful relationships, rewarding work, physical health, and spiritual renewal.
Grateful for all I have and receive, I give with joy—sharing from the bounty of God’s good. Every day my prayer is: Thank you, God! for the outpouring of unlimited good.
Do not be afraid, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.—Luke 12:32

Thursday, March 6, 2014

Let Go Let God with Enthusiasm

I am an explorer in a world of opportunity.

I am enthusiastic about life and the opportunities it brings to pursue my interests, serve others, and grow in spiritual understanding. Upon awakening each morning, I prepare myself for the day ahead. I enthusiastically say yes to what is mine to do. Applying the power of divine wisdom, I maintain balance and go at a healthy pace. I learn new skills and deepen my understanding of what interests me. I am an explorer in a world of opportunity! My zeal for living includes helping others and being of service. I am also enthusiastic about my spiritual practice and study so that I may learn and grow for the evolution of my soul. I am passionate about life and thankful for the opportunity of each new day.
Do not lag in zeal, be ardent in spirit, serve the Lord.–Romans 12:11

Let Go Let God in Transformation

I am a new creation in Christ.

If I have been preoccupied with improving or transforming my image or outer appearance, I may feel an inner nudge to pay more attention to my spirit and soul. As I turn my attention inward, I remember that I am an expression of the Christ Spirit, which needs no alteration. My Christ Self—the highest expression of God in me—is all I will ever need to be. As I let this awareness grow in me thought by thought, I begin to fully embrace its truth, and I am transformed from the inside out. I honor the sacred perfection of the Christ in me. I am continually renewed. I am Spirit-filled!
So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new!—2 Corinthians 5:17

Let Go Let God in Divine Order

Change opens the way to greater good.

Nature moves in cycles from activity to dormancy. First comes a clearing away of the old, then a time of stillness, then new life. Seasons change in a predictable way; yet my life may not always appear so orderly. What may look like turmoil is really life transforming into a new season. What may look like inactivity is really the precursor to new growth. As a child, I learned what to expect from spring, summer, fall, and winter. As an adult, I learn to trust the cycles of renewal in my own life. I learn from the past, release what no longer serves me, and create each new day. I appreciate the endings that lead to new beginnings, and give thanks that the goodness of God is present in every experience.
I trust in you, O Lord; I say, “You are my God.”—Psalm 31:14

Let Go Let God with Inner Light

I let my light shine to bless the world.

My soul longs to shine brightly; yet I may not always feel that it does. When I am angry, sad, or frustrated, I remind myself that my inner light is a divine gift that never leaves me. Emotions shift and change, but the light of God in me is constant and strong. Jesus said, “You are the light of the world.” I magnify my inner light by discovering and expressing my gifts and talents. When I share them with others and give from my heart, my authentic self shines through. As I give and express all that I am, I become a powerful beacon of light and love. My light shines strong and steady to bless the world.
Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.—Matthew 5:16

Sunday, March 2, 2014

Let Go Let God Release

I am ready to create a new day!

At any time, I can release hurt or disappointment from the past. Although I cannot change what happened yesterday, I can create a new today. I turn within to pray, and I connect with the Christ of my being—the inner light that guides me. I am ready to forgive, ready to release what was or could have been, and accept what is. I do not restrict the blessings that are unfolding in my life by harboring grudges or resentment. I recognize and accept the blessings that are mine to experience. I open myself to a new day and a new way of being. The Christ within shows me the way to a new and beautiful life, which I am ready and willing to receive.
If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, so that where I am, there you may be also.—John 14:3

Saturday, March 1, 2014

Let Go Let God Find Inner Peace

I am strengthened by the peace of God within.

When I fill my mind with the loving presence of God, I find peace. Whatever storms may be stirring around me, I find my center by connecting with the spirit of God in me. I follow my breath into my sacred heart center. I am one with the comforting Presence that is always here and available to me. As I turn away from what is happening outside, I go within and abide in peace. One with Divine Love, I breathe easily, relax, and let go. Once I have regained my serenity, I have the presence of mind to thoughtfully take right action. Divine ideas and solutions come to me. I am enriched and empowered by the peace of God within.
I have said this to you, so that in me you may have peace. In the world you face persecution. But take courage; I have conquered the world!—John 16:33
