Let Go Let God in Faith

I have absolute faith in God.
As Christmas approaches, my faith grows. I imagine what it must have been like 2,000 years ago when Mary was expecting baby Jesus. Her anticipation and wonder were multiplied knowing this baby was particularly special. Her faith was absolute and unshakable. My faith in God is immovable. If I sense a tinge of doubt, I close my eyes and feel the presence of Spirit. As I remember that with God all things are possible, my faith is instantly renewed. Mine is an understanding faith. I may not grasp all the complexities of life, but spiritual understanding assures me that divine order is always unfolding. As I am guided to something new or even challenging, I step out in faith and expect only good.
Whatever you ask for in prayer with faith, you will receive.—Matthew 21:22

Let Go Let God Dance

I join in the glorious dance of Life.
Sunlight sparkles across a blue lake. Shadows play across a wall. Winds rustle through evergreen forests. Even the busy city streets have a steady flow about them. All of life is a dance, a perfect choreography of Spirit. With joy and delight, I step in the beautiful flow of creation. As I turn my attention to the indwelling Spirit, I sense the underlying rhythm of all living things. It is in my own breath and my own heart. When this tempo changes on the outside, I stay attuned to my inner music­—my divine guidance. I whirl and jump through twists and turns with seamless grace. In sync with Spirit, I play my unique part in the dance of Life.
Singers and dancers alike say, “All my springs are in you.”—Psalm 87:7

Let Go Let God in Comfort

I rest in the love of Spirit, knowing all is well.
Sunshine on my face, a loving hug from a friend, a crackling fire, a soft blanket, soothing candlelight, a hot bath, beautiful music … all of these bring me comfort. I know how to create a nurturing environment for my body, mind, and soul. I take good care of myself with gentleness and love. I know that just as important as what I do is the consciousness with which I do it. If I am conscious of the eternal love of Spirit, I am more deeply soothed by each activity of well-being. My awareness of God is the most fulfilling and lasting comfort of all. However I choose to soothe myself in body, mind, and soul, I do so knowing that I am eternally loved. And in the everlasting love of Spirit, all is truly well.
Let your steadfast love become my comfort according to your promise.—Psalm 119:76

Let Go Let God with Gratefulness

In all things, I give thanks to God.
I practice gratitude in all circumstances. I begin by thanking God as my omnipresent guide and source. Through the spiritual practice of thanksgiving, I move beyond doubt or worry into a place of faith and trust. Gratitude goes beyond giving thanks for help in times of need; it is a way of life. Gratefulness is my way of being, my foundation for living. As I give thanks, my heart and mind open to the goodness of God. I become a vessel into which divine abundance flows. My greatest blessing is the Christ Presence within—my hope, and the very essence of love and life. Every breath I take and every word I speak reflect the activity of God in me. For all of life’s blessings, I give thanks.
Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.–1 Thessalonians 5:18

Let Go Let God with Hospitality

I greet all people with friendly hospitality.
This holiday season may give me opportunities to welcome others into my home, workplace, or church. Whether I host friends or people I don’t know, I greet each one with heartfelt hospitality. Hospitality is my gift. And as I give, I receive. I demonstrate hospitality by considering the needs and wishes of others. I delight in making them feel right at home. I graciously offer my care and kindness as an expression of the love of God in me. Gratitude fills my heart as I serve and appreciate others. I acknowledge how much they have blessed me, and I let them know how I feel. My hospitality connects me with others, and I show them how special they are.
Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it.—Hebrews 13:2

Let Go, Let God

I am guided and restored by God’s power and light.
Completing errands, shopping, planning meals, and hosting gatherings can cause stress during the holiday season. When I feel I don’t have enough time for everything, or find myself harried, I stop and take a deep breath­—then release. I let go of the day’s worries and let God restore my peace. As I commune with God, I release my anxiety and let Spirit renew my energy. I then have the strength and calm to complete what is mine to do. Spirit is the light that guides me. When I don’t know what to do, I ask within. I let go of my way and let God shine the light of understanding in me. My life runs smoothly as I yield to the light and power of God. In the midst of holiday busyness, I let go and let God.
To give light to those who sit in darkness ... to guide our feet into the way of peace.—Luke 1:79

Let Go Let God in Togetherness

I am never alone; God is always with me.
Wherever I am and whomever I am with, God is there. Spirit is always with me. When I walk in the woods, sit by a stream, or hear a beautiful birdsong, I sense the presence of the Divine. If I ever feel separate from others, I consider whether I am holding thoughts of separation, such as judgments or comparisons. I release them and remember the Truth: whomever I am with, God is there. I affirm: I am one with God and with all people. I soften my gaze and look again at the people around me. I behold Spirit expressing as them. I relax and feel my oneness with others and with all of life. I enjoy being together with others. All of life shares divinity—we are always together in God.
Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.—Mark 10:9

Let Go Let God with Will

I use my human willpower to act on divine ideas in the world.
My human willpower helps me to accomplish things in the world. When I align it with the power of God, I can do anything. Will is the capacity to make choices, and I use it to shape my ideas and my life. When I act on a thought, I bring it to life. I use this power to make healthy choices, choose positive thoughts, or focus on a goal and achieve it. With the ability of will, I direct my life. I make wise choices to be the best person I can be. I align my willpower with the power of God. In prayer and meditation, I listen to divine ideas of peace, reconciliation, forgiveness, and love. I choose to act on these divine ideas for myself and others, even in difficulties. In this way, I manifest Spirit in the world.
If God is for us, who is against us?—Romans 8:31

Let Go Let God in Prosperity

I am open to God’s creative flow.

Eliminate such thoughts as ‘I can’t,’ ‘I’m afraid,’ and ‘there is not enough’. Instead, talk only about the things you want to see live and grow. Keep your thoughts centered in the idea of abundance, sufficiency, and well-being. Through faith, I align my thoughts and words with God’s creative flow. I am enfolded by the Divine seeking to express through me. When I need encouragement, I turn to nature and admire life expressing in countless ways. I observe the hills, valleys, and forests overflowing with life. I am part of that same richness, created to give, love, and be loved. I enjoy life’s abundance. With faith, I focus on what I want to see live and grow.
The pastures of the wilderness overflow ... they shout and sing together for joy.–Psalm 65:12-13

Let Go Let God Write It Down

I can do all things through Christ in me.

Today I let the power of my words flow. I write down my ideas as they come to me, recording my special needs and desires. I write an original message of Truth for myself. If I need healing, I create a simple healing statement—God is my health. I write it down and add my healing thoughts and prayers. If I seek greater harmony, prosperity, or peace, I write about the fulfillment of that need—God is healing me now. Love harmonizes my relationships. I am prospered by divine ideas. I abide in the peace of God. I read my affirmations aloud, and envision good results. I may also find a Bible verse that speaks to my heart and fits my need. When I put my faith into words, I call forth the creative power of Spirit in me.
Be doers of the word.—James 1:22

Let Go Let God with Laughter

My life is filled with laughter and my heart is full of joy.

There is nothing like a good laugh to make me feel refreshed, free, and joyful. In the presence of laughter, any worries or stress melt away. When I laugh with others, I feel connected to them. Today I take everything a little less seriously. I open, soften, and embrace the joy that is everywhere present. I look around and see the humor in life. Laughter arises as I open myself to express it. My burdens lighten, and my spirit is lifted. My laugh comes as easily as the joyful giggle of a carefree child. I happily go about my day sharing my good energy with others. As I do, my heart is cheerful and I live in joy.
Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy; then it was said among the nations, “The Lord has done great things for them.”–Psalm 126:2

Let Go Let God with Success

I apply my talents and abilities to my work, and I am successful.
My work is more than a source of supply; it is also a source of fulfillment. My work gives me the opportunity to use the talents and abilities God has given me. When I use my gifts to serve and bring joy to others, I have a sense of accomplishment—I achieve true success. No job needs to be boring or humdrum. If I feel my work does not give me the opportunity to grow, I pray for a change. In the meantime, I do the best I can right where I am and thank God for my job every day. I bring happiness to the people I serve. Today I put my heart into what I do, knowing that true success comes from the inside. I am blessed to be of service in the world!
Serve him with single mind and willing heart; for the Lord searches every mind, and understands every plan and thought.—1 Chronicles 28:9

Let Go Let God with Encouragement

Infused with Spirit, I am strengthened and inspired.
When learning to fly, a fledgling bird often needs prompting from its mother to try again if it has fallen. Life has its challenges, but even when I feel defeated, I do not allow discouraging thoughts to hold me down. God is my greatest support; I am inspired with the courage to persevere. Deep at the center of my being lies a powerhouse of encouragement. In prayer, I turn away from self-defeating thoughts and tap in to the divine spark in my heart that burns with optimism, and fuels me forward. From this higher vantage point, setbacks become stepping-stones. I spread my wings with confidence—nothing can hold me back. Spirit uplifts me and carries me forward.
We will not fear, though the earth should change, though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea.—Psalm 46:2

Let Go Let God with Gentleness

I heal myself with gentleness.
Gentleness toward myself is an act of self-love and the first step toward compassion for others. Jesus proclaimed that all humans belong to one spiritual family. His teachings were about gentleness, compassion, and love among people. I practice gentleness by first noticing my feelings. If I feel anger, I look for the causes within. I meditate, pray, or write in a journal. With time and patience, I may discover my inner child calling for love. I comfort this part of me with utmost tenderness, as if caressing my soul with the delicate touch of a feather. As I nurture my inner child, my anger subsides. I am healed inside and feel at home within myself. Any sense of separation dissolves; I belong to myself and to humanity.
You who have received the Spirit should restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness.—Galatians 6:1

Let Go Let God Learn

I treasure all my learning experiences.
A Chinese proverb states that learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere. All my triumphs and tribulations are to be treasured. With each experience, I learn more about myself and my purpose. With every situation, I see the world from a new perspective, and I grow. Each stage of my life has its challenges and rewards, and brings wisdom and insight. How exciting to know life’s lessons are unfolding! How wonderful that each day inspires new growth! My life is not stagnant or dull, but filled with new joys. I look forward to each day, ready to learn about myself and the world. I treasure my life and all its lessons.
So that they may have all the riches of assured understanding ... all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.—Colossians 2:2-3

Let Go Let God Be Free

Today, I choose to be free.
Freedom is a state of being beyond external circumstances. I can experience freedom regardless of what I see outside myself. I choose to be positive in my thoughts and feelings, attitudes and perceptions. By choosing to focus on the good, I am free. I release negative thoughts and emotions, and feel lighter in mind, body, and soul. I nurture my mind with ideas of health and well-being and experience the freedom of a balanced and productive life. My outlook is positive—I expect only good. Freedom is a choice, a state of mind. By holding positive thoughts and feelings, I experience life to the fullest. Today I choose to be optimistic. Today I choose my freedom.
I have set before you life and death ... Choose life so that you and your descendants may live.—Deuteronomy 30:19

Let Go Let God in Harmony

As I live in harmony, I am an agent for peace.

I am in harmony with Spirit in mind, body, and soul. As I experience wholeness and express it in my unique way, I become an agent for peace in the world. Spirit is the essence of my being, the I Am expressing individually as me. My body is the vehicle to carry Spirit into the world. As I align myself with Christ within, thoughts of wholeness fill my mind, my body experiences balance, and I feel aliveness in my soul. If I experience disharmony or disease, I pause to recenter my thoughts and focus on Spirit. In harmony with God, I affect my outer environment positively. Aligned with Divine Love—in mind, body, and soul—I speak and act in the world from the peaceful, loving center of my being.
You also are built together spiritually into a dwelling place for God.—Ephesians 2:22

Let Go Let God with Grace

I am grateful for the grace of God’s ever-present unconditional love.

God’s grace is my divine inheritance; I was born with it. I am as God created me—a perfect and unique expression of the Divine. Only if I give power to doubt or fear can I experience separation from God. When I am centered in the unconditional love of God, I live in grace and Oneness. Jesus exemplified grace by demonstrating unconditional love. Through his Christ nature, he saw the Divine in all people, even those excluded by others. Like Jesus, I believe the Christ nature—the presence of God—lives in me and in every being. As I release any doubts of God’s love, I accept and celebrate the divine nature in me and in all. As I fully live in God’s grace, I experience the Truth of God’s perfect love.
The law indeed was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.—John 1:17

Let Go Let God Pray for Others

I trust the spirit of God in you, and I know that all is well.
I may sometimes wish my loved ones would think or act differently. I may be concerned their actions or decisions will bring them harm or unhappiness. I may hope they were more open to the blessings of life. However well-intentioned I may be, I must free myself and my dear ones from my anxiety and worry. I turn my loved ones over to God and trust they will be safe. Just as the Presence is strong in me, the same is true for them. The spirit of God is at work and good is unfolding in their lives, no matter what I see. When I am concerned about my family and friends, I pray affirmatively: The spirit of God is with you, and I trust God in you. I see you as God sees you, with love. All is well. With faith, I release my loved ones to Spirit.
He will not let your foot be moved; he who keeps you will not slumber.—Psalm 121:3

Let Go Let God Heroically

Aligned with Divine Mind, I boldly express my truth.
Sometimes I’m unsure about what to do in a given situation. Circumstances may call for a particular action that does not feel right to me. Although I could simply do what others want me to do, I want to act from integrity. I choose to be true to myself. At times like these, I pray. I become quiet and listen for the still, small voice of Divine Mind. Aligned with Spirit, I receive the direction I seek and the wisdom I desire. I find the courage to do what is mine to do without doubt. Assured of God’s guidance, I move forward with confidence and conviction. As I bravely act in integrity, I feel at peace and trust in the perfect outcome for all concerned. Attuned to Divine Mind, I discover the truth that brings freedom.
And you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.­—John 8:32

Let Go Let God in World Peace

As I live in peace, I bring peace to others.
When I put God first in my life, I know only peace. When the unconditional love of God fills my thoughts, it leaves no space for separation or judgment. When I see others through the eyes of peace and love, I contribute to world peace. If discord arises within or around me, I pray to reconnect with the Truth: I live in the peace and love of God. This right thinking illumines my thoughts and prevails over disharmony. I begin my day by thanking God for the peace in me. Before I go to sleep, I acknowledge that peace also lies within everyone on earth. I affirm: Our minds and hearts are together in peace, and world peace prevails.
The effect of righteousness will be peace, and the result of righteousness, quietness and trust.—Isaiah 32:1

Let Go Let God in Forgiveness

Forgiving others and myself restores my spiritual health.
When a kitten has wandered away from its mother, she gently brings it back home. The mother does not have negative feelings toward the kitten but stays focused on caring for its health and safety. When my thoughts or actions wander away from love, I gently bring them back. Harboring negative thoughts and feelings about others hurts me more than it hurts them. Forgiving and releasing anything or anyone that may have harmed me frees me to focus on my spiritual health. In my prayer time, I surround any unhealed situation or transgressor in love, and call forth the power of forgiveness. I extend this forgiveness to myself, letting go of past mistakes. I make amends where appropriate, and release the situation to God.
When you are offering your gift at the altar ... first be reconciled to your brother or sister.—Matthew 5:23-24

Let Go Let God in Divine Order

I give thanks for divine order at work in and around me.
Rain falls onto the earth, is heated by the sun, and rises as steam to form clouds. When the clouds get heavy, they break open and water falls again. This cycle supports life, growth, and harvest. Divine order is evident in countless cycles of nature and within me. My day begins as I awaken from restful sleep and ends when I again seek rest and renewal. My body functions in orderly rhythms: the rise and fall of each breath, the steadiness of my heartbeat, my processes of nutrition and circulation. God’s work is everywhere. I embrace divine order in me and around me by affirming it, thinking positively, and expecting good results.
The rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return there until they have watered the earth.–Isaiah 55:10

Let Go Let God Provide Guidance

I am attuned to the wisdom of God.
Spirit’s guidance may come at any time, even when I am not seeking it. I stay receptive to divine communication through nudges and ideas. I may read and feel inspired or receive an invitation for an adventure. When guidance comes from Spirit, I hear something inside me say “Yes!” I trust God’s guidance to push me past any resistance from old ways of thinking. I release any thoughts of limitation or fear. Whether I have been planning my next step carefully or feel suddenly called, I confidently step beyond the familiar into new growth. I gain greater awareness of what is mine to do and follow Spirit’s direction with enthusiasm. As I do, I welcome abundant and joyful blessings. I walk in trust, ready to follow God’s guidance.
Remind them to be ... ready for every good work.—Titus 3:1

Let Go Let God with Inner Peace

I am a center of peace.

When I think of inner peace, I picture the eye of a hurricane. Even with the swirling chaos and turmoil, its center is calm and undisturbed. As I turn to the peaceful presence of God within me, I experience tranquility regardless of outer circumstances. Inner peace comes from faith, intention, and focus. I have faith in God as my source of inner peace. I set my intention to experience serenity in my relationships and interactions. My thoughts and attitudes are focused on peace. With this practice, I experience inner stillness, a calm deep within where nothing can disturb me. I am in the “eye” of the storm. I am the peace that stands secure and strong in the awareness of God.
The priest replied, “Go in peace. The mission you are on is under the eye of the Lord.”—Judges 18:6

Let Go Let God Be Rooted

Rooted in God, I am peaceful, courageous, and strong.
Every fiber of my being is divine substance. I am made in the image and likeness of God. I may look like a separate part of the whole, but underneath my human nature is the vastness of Spirit. I am a wave that belongs to the ocean.I am never separate from God because God is everywhere present. Worry and anxiety are signs I have forgotten this Truth. To remember it, I pause, feel my breath, and meditate. I may start by being aware of body sensations—my heartbeat, my feet on the ground. In God, I breathe and live. I am part of the ocean of existence. Everything outside and inside me is God. As I focus on Divine Intelligence, I let go of any concerns. Rooted in God, I live in Oneness and peace.
Keep alert, stand firm in your faith, be courageous, be strong.—1 Corinthians 16:13

Let Go Let God Provide Healing

I am whole and well in mind, body, and spirit.
When electrical equipment malfunctions, I first check to see whether it is plugged in. Similarly, when I experience dysfunction or disease in mind or body, I check whether I am “plugged in” to God. If I have harbored faulty ideas, I let them go. If I have given power to beliefs of disharmony or sickness, I disconnect from those thoughts and reconnect to Truth. Established in right thinking, I allow the light of Truth to heal and transform me. As I experience healing from the inside out, I feel great ease and aliveness. I deeply trust life’s divine and perfect unfolding. No matter where I am in my healing process, I know that perfection and wholeness are my Truth. God is my health and well-being.
Your eye is the lamp of your body. If your eye is healthy, your whole body is full of light.—Luke 11:34

Let Go Let God in Declaration

I claim my divine inheritance through powerful affirmations.
I claim my good knowing it is already mine. Myrtle Fillmore declared, “I am a child of God and therefore I do not inherit sickness.” She claimed her health despite a diagnosis of tuberculosis. Myrtle stayed focused through daily prayer, affirming words of praise and encouragement to her body. She continued to declare health as the truth of her being, until her body responded and the good she claimed was fully manifest. I claim my good by declaring aloud the truth of my divine inheritance: I am loving and loved. I am prospered by Divine Ideas. I am healthy and whole. I feel the power of my affirmations. Regardless of outer appearances, I call forth my good through the power of my words.
Pray that I may declare it boldly, as I must speak.—Ephesians 6:20

Sunday, November 2, 2014

Let Go Let God in Meditation

I am open to a greater awareness of God within.
Meditation restores my soul and re-energizes me. As I turn to the quiet within, I breathe deeply and relax. I clear my mind of all conscious thoughts. Each one is like a leaf gently floating downstream. I may focus on a word or phrase as a mantra of peace. As I become still, my mind and heart open to a greater awareness of God. In the stillness, peace and love surround me. I transcend the external world and enter a light-filled space of tranquility and understanding, where I receive the blessings of God. As I close my time in meditation, I gently pull myself back from the solitude of the Silence. I gradually become aware of sounds around me. Revitalized, centered, and peaceful, I return to the activities of the day.
The meditation of my heart shall be understanding.—Psalm 49:3

Let Go Let God with Courage

I am strong of heart, courageous,and triumphant.
I may possess great physical strength, mental capacity, or both. However, neither of these is the source of my true power. Only the presence of God in my heart brings the steadfast courage and fortitude to overcome any challenge. I find my inner strength when I connect with God in the Silence. Spirit within encourages me to be loving, authentic, and brave. I live fearlessly in each moment as God inspires me to move forward with confidence and zeal. I welcome each new challenge as an adventure, with a sense of gratitude and joy. Heartened by Spirit, I accomplish all that is mine to do with deep assurance. I do not merely survive and endure difficulties, I thrive! Through Spirit within, I live triumphantly!
Be strong, and let your heart take courage, all you who wait for the Lord.—Psalm 31:24
