Let Go Let God in Communication

I listen attentively and speak mindfully.
Today I communicate compassionately. I am attentive to what others say, and I speak with honesty and kindness. In the past when someone spoke to me, I may have been distracted by my thoughts and judgments. Today I listen closely. When someone expresses a need, I repeat their words and make sure I understand. Before I speak, I consider—are my words true, kind, and necessary? I kindly communicate what I know to be true. As I share my points of view on a topic, I respect the opinions of others. Instead of wanting to be right, my intention is to share information and deepen my relationships. As I speak from my heart and my truth, I enjoy healthy relationships, and I am transformed.
Let no evil talk come out of your mouths, but only what is useful.—Ephesians 4:29

Let Go Let God Have Faith

I have faith in God to direct my way.
In the past, I may have trusted limited ways of thinking or sources outside of myself for direction and understanding.But now I have faith in the Christ Presence within—God in me—to lead my life in the right direction. God is within me always. I can trust Spirit with my life. When challenges arise, or if questions and fears come to mind, I keep my faith in the Christ Presence. In my prayers, I ask for the next step. With confidence, with poise, and in peace, I follow the way that is made clear. If I have more than one choice, I trust in Spirit to help me choose wisely. As I walk in faith, my way becomes clear.
Jesus said to him, “Receive your sight; your faith has saved you.”—Luke 18:42

Let Go Let God in Change

I find the good in each circumstance.
Life brings blessings in disguise. I may not notice the positive side of life circumstances as they unfold. Yet with spiritual awareness, I remain open to seeing changes in my life as blessings in the present moment. Change may be as simple as rearranging plans, or as complex as an unexpected challenge. I am willing to learn from each experience. Rather than resist change, I look for and find the good in each circumstance. I envision myself someday looking back at this moment and seeing how my willingness and nonresistance helped me in ways I could not even imagine. I trust Spirit is bringing me exactly what I need to build my life.
See, the former things have come to pass, and new things I now declare; before they spring forth, I tell you of them.—Isaiah 42:9

Let Go Let God in Prosperity

I claim my inheritance of God’s unlimited abundance.
God’s limitless good is at hand, right here, right now. As I begin this wonderful new year, I am ready to claim my full inheritance of God’s infinite abundance. Before I can fully receive more of Spirit’s bountiful love, joy, and wealth, I must clear space in my consciousness. I release old beliefs in lack or limitation and forgive myself and others for past mistakes. I create a welcoming space for new and greater forms of good in my home or work by letting go of possessions I no longer need. As I lovingly release ideas, possessions, jobs, or relationships that have fulfilled their purpose, I welcome a fresh, vibrant, and prosperous year.
The latter splendor of this house shall be greater than the former, says the Lord of hosts; and in this place I will give prosperity.—Haggai 2:9

Let Go Let God in Harmony

My body reverberates in harmony with Spirit.
The body is like a musical instrument. When attuned to Spirit, it radiates the health and harmony of Divine Mind. I attune my body by quieting my mind and aligning my consciousness with the one thought of God. As I breathe, I become aware of my oneness with Spirit—my innate wholeness. I sense the still, small voice reverberating from the depths of my being. This vibration of Divine Love is sweet music to my soul. It is a hymn of joy and peace sending currents of well-being throughout my body. Spirit’s melody radiates in, through, and as me. As I manifest wholeness and harmony in every cell of my being, I praise God in thanksgiving.
Clap your hands, all you peoples; shout to God with loud songs of joy.—Psalm 47:1

Let Go Let God in Community

I build community through prayer.
I am grateful to belong to my community. By attending church events, sporting events, or charity fundraisers, I connect with others. But true community does not depend on shared activities or beliefs. My kinship with others is God-given. Through prayer, I remember my innate oneness with all people. In the Silence, I enlarge my sense of community. I then deepen this feeling of kinship by participating in organized prayer efforts—whether for local or global causes—or simply pray for everyone who is suffering. My heart overflows with love for others, which comes from God. I rejoice in my bond with all of humanity.
Now that you have purified your souls by your obedience to the truth so that you have genuine mutual love, love one another deeply from the heart.—1 Peter 1:22

Let Go Let God with Self-Care

I care for myself and feel at peace.
Being there for others is an important part of my life. But, how often do I take time to care for myself? In the busyness of life, the person I may be neglecting is me. Jesus knew the importance of caring for oneself. He advised us to take time to rest and pray. Prayer is beneficial on a spiritual, physical, and mental level. In prayer, I pause, relax, and breathe deeply. I let go of doing for others and embrace the peace of being with God. In these precious moments, I feel renewed and empowered. My body and mind are vehicles to express Spirit in the world. Thus, I make self-care a top priority. I commit to resting, relaxing, and taking time to pray. As I care for myself, I am present to God.
My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.—Exodus 33:14

Let Go Let God with Benevolence

I am appreciative, kind, and generous with others.
Today I live with the intention to express to others my generosity, kindness, and appreciation. I am grateful for the presence of my loved ones. I cherish the good moments and the difficulties that help us grow. As I appreciate others, I also feel better about myself. Because I value others and myself, I am kind. In my thoughts and actions, I treat myself with gentleness, and I extend that kindness in my relationships. As I cultivate gentleness, my spirit expands. Out of kindness and appreciation for others, I am generous. I take every opportunity to give of my time, talent, and treasure. As I cultivate benevolence, I grow in the love of God.
You will be enriched in every way for your great generosity, which will produce thanksgiving to God.—2 Corinthians 9:11

Let Go Let God with Inner Peace

Peace emanates from my calm center.
My peace comes from the center of my being. When I practice centering myself, I maintain a peaceful state of harmony. I find a quiet place to meditate and direct my attention within. I imagine a large circle filled with a layer of fine sand. Focusing on the center, I visualize tracing the sand around and around, moving slowly to the outer edge, creating a peaceful spiral. I see my life as this circle. As I generate serenity from the inside, I move with ease and grace in the world. Peace emanates from my calm center, and I bring my tranquil presence wherever I go. I infuse each situation in my life with my calmness, grateful to be a radiating center of the peace of God.
He said to them, “Come away to a deserted place all by yourselves and rest a while.”—Mark 6:31

Let Go Let God Provide Happiness

In this moment, I am enough and I have enough to be happy.
Whatever happens in my life, I can experience happiness within me. I deserve happiness and I am worthy of love. I am joyful when I am content with myself and connected to others. I let go of what might have been as well as past mistakes. By forgiving myself and others, I clear away barriers to giving and receiving love. When I release the past, I choose happiness and freedom. I feel the love of God enfolding me. I trust my Creator withholds nothing good from me. I appreciate the blessings in my life and claim the good still unfolding. Whether I am praying alone, playing with friends, or planning an adventure, I am content with myself and with others. In this moment, I am enough and I have enough to be happy.
O Lord of hosts, happy is everyone who trusts in you.—Psalm 84:12

Let Go Let God When Praying for Others

I pray for others with faith and gratitude.
When praying for others, I center myself in the awareness of God within me. I remember that God is also within those for whom I pray. I affirm my faith in the power of prayer and give thanks for the activity of Spirit in all situations. If I am tempted to worry, I realign my emotions, thoughts, actions, and words, for they are part of my prayer. When I pray for a loved one’s healing, I visualize them whole and healthy. When I pray for a friend seeking a job, I imagine them gainfully employed in fulfilling work. Praying for the people of the world, I imagine Divine Love, Light, and Life at work in their lives. Filled with faith and focused on gratitude, I live in prayer for others.
Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with thanksgiving.—Colossians 4:2

Let Go Let God Provide Guidance

Spirit guides my every step.
Sometimes I am unclear about my purpose and direction in life. I may feel confused, stagnant, or lost. When this happens, I turn within and listen to Spirit guiding my every step. I release any worry about the future and trust the still, small voice in my heart. I ask for the next small step, and take action. A baby who has just learned to stand does not know he or she is also building the necessary skills to walk, run, and dance. Like the infant, I may not understand how the steps I am taking now will serve as the foundation for my journey. I have faith as Spirit within guides my choices. As I listen and follow my inner guidance, I know I am on the right track.
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.—Psalm 119:105

Let Go Let God in Service

I behold the light of God in every person.
Martin Luther King Jr. did not serve for personal glory, but for the good of all humanity. He spoke for those who had no voice, and worked for peace, justice, and equality. He followed the example of Jesus. I serve others as a way of honoring God, and behold the Christ Light in every person. No act of kindness is too small to make a difference in the world. I can prepare a meal for one person or for a hundred. I seek opportunities to be of service in my home, church, and community. I choose my words carefully in every situation, so my message brings peace. I speak out in favor of equality for all. I see God’s Light in the faces around me, and I serve them with love.
I am grateful to Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because he judged me faithful and appointed me to his service.—1 Timothy 1:12

Let Go Let God to Opportunity

I open my mind and heart to dynamic new ideas.
By opening my heart and mind, I expand my spiritual vision and encompass a wider view. A fresh perspective allows me to perceive new and unexpected ideas. I am no longer bound by limited thinking and see opportunities I might have previously missed. I am seeing with new eyes. When I look beyond my own needs and desires and strive to serve others, my intuitive nature awakens. I align with the inner timing of life. I know when to wait and when to boldly move ahead. I trust my inner guidance and relax with inner assurance. As I expand my view to new opportunities, I proceed with full confidence. I am happy and grateful for my positive perspective of life.
So then, whenever we have an opportunity, let us work for the good of all, and especially for those of the family of faith.—Galatians 6:10

Let Go Let God with Unlimited Forgiveness

As I choose to forgive, I find peace and freedom.

I may be angry at others or at myself for past actions. But no matter the difficulty, I can choose to forgive and live in peace. Unlimited forgiveness means I am willing to cease blaming others and myself. When I stop pointing my finger, I become ready to genuinely feel my emotions. I don’t have to weather my feelings alone—I can pray to God for help. If anger returns, I choose to forgive again, as many times as needed. To forgive does not mean I approve of what has happened. It means I am ready to leave the past behind, and be free and joyful again. I keep my intention to forgive, and I am patient with myself. As I let go of resentment and pain, I welcome the gift of grace.
“How often should I forgive? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “Not seven times, but, I tell you, seventy-seven times.”—Matthew 18:21-22

Let Go, Let God

I am healthy, wise, at peace, and open to my good.
Walking through the gently falling snow, I pause to look closely at a snowflake. In the beauty of its intricate pattern, I see the love and creativity of God. A drop of moisture was released and transformed when the right conditions were present to form a snowflake. I am shaped and patterned by the presence of God in me. I trust Spirit in me to create the right conditions and transform my life. As I do, I trust in what unfolds. What has fulfilled its purpose in my life will pass, and the new will come. I open myself to healing, guidance, and prosperity. I trust that conditions are right for my highest good to unfold. When I trust in God, I am continually transformed. I am healthy, wise, at peace, and ready for even greater good.
For I will restore health to you.—Jeremiah 30:17

Let Go Let God Provide Comfort

God is my comforter. I am filled with peace.
Life is filled with joyous, meaningful, and challenging moments. I take comfort in knowing that, at all times, the presence of God is with me as a guiding light and a strengthening power. Psalm 23 is a beautiful reminder that Spirit is my comfort and my fortitude. When I read the words, “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want,” I feel divinely cared for. I know that God—my Guide and Comforter—is with me in times of happiness and difficulty. Spirit “leads me beside still waters”—a place where I can rest and feel the flow of the Divine. In that place, God “restores my soul.” I am assured that, even in loss, there is peace, for the Holy Comforter is always with me.
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.—Psalm 23:1

Let Go Let God Be Bold

Emboldened by Spirit, I pursue my dreams.
Whether I want to move across the country or write a book, I can make my dreams come true. Dreams are ideas in the Mind of God. They arise in my heart because I am a spiritual being, always in the process of becoming. As I listen to my heart, I take bold steps toward my vision. To manifest it, I put my thoughts, feelings, and words into actions. As I pursue my dreams, I feel joy, peace, and freedom. If self-doubt arises, I rekindle my faith and get back on track. I boldly affirm my heart’s desire and proceed one step at a time. As I confidently walk toward my dreams, I am emboldened by Spirit.
So they remained for a long time, speaking boldly for the Lord, who testified to the word of his grace by granting signs and wonders to be done through them.–Acts 14:3

Let Go Let God Listen

As I stop and truly listen, Spirit speaks beyond words.
Today I notice the pauses between the noises of everyday life—conversations, the buzz of the city, and the sounds of nature. Every lull is an opportunity to explore Divine Mind. I pay attention to pauses and make space for insights. Instead of nervously filling the silence, I luxuriate in the connection with Spirit. The choice is continually mine. Today I speak less and notice more. The Divine is continually seeking to communicate through us and as us. By allowing the Silence to be, I open to what it tells me. In this spaciousness, my awareness naturally becomes richer and deeper. As I stop and truly listen, Spirit speaks beyond words.
And after the fire a sound of sheer silence. When Elijah heard it, he wrapped his face in his mantle and went out and stood at the entrance of the cave.–1 Kings 19:12-13

Let Go Let God in Divine Order

As Divine Order unfolds, I am at peace.
We often say “Divine Order” to reassure ourselves that all will work out in the end. Regardless of how circumstances unfold, I have control over my inner world. I create a space for peace inside me. When I become quiet and turn within, I feel the peace of eternal reassurance. I choose a calm state of mind by closing my eyes, breathing deeply, and letting go of busy or fearful thoughts. In this place of inner peace, I sink further into the Presence of God. I know Divine Order prevails. As I go about my day and interact with others, I access this same peaceful Presence. No matter how circumstances evolve, I live in Divine Order—from the inside out.
Great peace have those who love your law; nothing can make them stumble.–Psalm 119:165

Let Go Let God Be the Motivation

I enjoy my journey to success.
With my power of imagination, I see new possibilities for success and satisfaction. I hold a clear picture and feel Spirit energizing and leading me to positive outcomes. I am guided and empowered to do what is mine to do. I ask Spirit for the next step and listen intently. Swift currents of faith move me onward as I navigate over, around, and through any obstacles. I trust the power of God to lift me up and move me forward. While on the path to success, I enjoy the continual growth of my soul. I experience deep satisfaction in making progress and exploring new possibilities. My joy is in the journey!
For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land, a land with flowing streams, with springs and underground waters welling up in valleys and hills.—Deuteronomy 8:7

Let Go Let God with Self-Acceptance

I accept my life experiences with love and compassion.
Life may bring pleasure or pain. I may want to hold on to happy situations while pushing away hurtful ones. But to live fully, I must embrace both with deep acceptance and love for myself. If I experience grief or loss, I release any self-judgment about feeling sad or confused. I let go of any resistance to my tears and let them flow. As I am present to my emotions with compassion, I feel the love of God supporting me. In happy times, I open myself to joy. I am grateful here and now, and I know Spirit is with me. When the time passes, I let it go. As I accept my experiences with an open heart, I discover God in all of them, which brings me wisdom and peace of mind.
We are writing these things so that our joy may be complete.—1 John 1:4

Friday, January 9, 2015

Let Go Let God in Reflection

My life reflects my positive thoughts.
My life is a reflection of my consciousness. As I think loving thoughts, I smile, and others smile at me. If I hold onto angry thoughts, I produce negative reactions. To make positive changes in my life, I take inventory of my beliefs. If I hold thoughts of lack, anger, or failure, I notice what I need to change, as these ideas and emotions do not produce the life I desire. I remove these images from my mind and replace them with visions of abundance, love, and success. I express gratitude for all I have. Confident in Spirit, I think positively and enjoy a good life.
Do not keep striving for what you are to eat and what you are to drink, and do not keep worrying. Instead, strive for his kingdom, and these things will be given to you.—Luke 12:29, 31

Let Go Let God Provide Healing

My body responds to my healing thoughts, and I radiate health.
As I begin my day, I pause to reflect on how wonderfully my body is built. Each part is important to the whole and naturally strives toward health and wholeness. Today I give thanks for my amazing body. I become aware of every part, from head to toe. I notice how my body is feeling in this moment without judgment. I notice the air gently entering and exiting my lungs, and I feel the rhythmic pulse of my heart. I consciously bless all my body parts: every bone, tissue, organ, and gland. Health and wholeness flow through me as my body responds to my loving thoughts. With every inhale, I am renewed. With every exhale, I give thanks to God for the living temple of my soul.
Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body.—Proverbs 16:24

Let Go Let God in World Peace

I am a presence of peace in the world.
World peace begins with people who are peaceful within themselves. It starts with those who find nonviolent ways to settle disputes. They respect others, honor differences, and realize God is in everyone. With every person who finds tranquility, the collective energy of peace grows, like a gentle breeze stirring love within all it touches. The Christ Essence within me is my source of inner calm and the seed of peace in the world. I connect with it by centering myself, relaxing my mind, and opening my heart. As I feel the loving presence of Spirit, I am at peace. I imagine this harmonious energy radiating into the world and carrying my prayer for peace into the hearts of all people.
Let us then pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding.—Romans 14:19

Let Go Let God Experience Epiphany

I am on a spiritual journey to realize my divine nature.
Many countries celebrate the holiday of Epiphany in commemoration of the Three Wise Men who traveled far to see the baby Jesus. They presented the newborn king with gold, frankincense, and myrrh. These items represent the spiritual gifts that are our divine birthright. I have these gifts within me, and my task is to discover them and express them in the world. I align with Spirit by taking time in the Silence every day. With practice, I awaken to my Christ nature and become aware of the gifts of wisdom, joy, and love within. As I experience my own epiphany, I become eager to share my gifts. Just as the Three Wise Men brought gifts to Jesus, I bring wisdom, joy, and love to the world.
Opening their treasure chests, they offered him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.—Matthew 2:11

Let Go Let God Be Free

Free from limiting beliefs, I enjoy a new perspective of life.
Thoughts of unworthiness, inadequacy, or lack inhibit my growth. My bondage to such error beliefs is like the ties that tether a hot air balloon to the ground. I can make a different choice. I can deny the power of error beliefs over my life, release them, and free myself. I affirm: I am worthy of all the riches of the Kingdom. God is my source, and I have unlimited potential. I replace limiting thoughts with statements of Truth. As I affirm them daily, they grow in me, and I see life from a new perspective. Like a hot air balloon fueled by propane, I am lifted up by the Truth of God’s Love. Untethered from false beliefs, I gain a wider outlook of all that is. Free and unlimited, I soar to new heights.
Christ has set us free. Stand firm, therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.—Galatians 5:1

Sunday, January 4, 2015

Let Go Let God Be Authentic

I create an authentic life.
As this new year begins, I focus on my life—where I have been and where I see myself going. I review my accomplishments and mistakes with honesty. What am I most proud of? What do I want to change and how? I begin by accepting my current circumstances honestly. Each new year brings unlimited possibilities to write a new story. I am true to myself and focus on what is really important. From this awareness, I create an authentic life that reflects who I truly am. I am unique and my life is unique. I am creator, director, and writer of my story, and I direct it in a way that brings the greatest joy for myself and others. As I live authentically, I enjoy a life of well-being and love.
For this I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth.—John 18:37

Saturday, January 3, 2015

Let Go Let God in Self-Awareness

I respond to life experiences with awareness and understanding.
During a sporting event, a TV commentator objectively describes what happens on the field, while another provides analysis. My mind works in a similar way. I experience life through my senses—sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch—and my mind gives meaning to what it perceives. I may unconsciously respond to new life events based on past experiences. When I practice self-awareness, I become conscious of both aspects of me. As I smell a flower, I pay attention to my inner analysis: What does it evoke in me? As I speak to someone, I notice my internal reactions. With practice, I see the difference between what happens in the world and my interpretations. Aware of my reactions, I pause before I act. I decide how to respond to life.
Who has put wisdom in the inward parts, or given understanding to the mind?—Job 38:36

Friday, January 2, 2015

Let Go Let God With Confidence

I have confidence in my innate potential to be all I am meant to be.
To express my God-given potential, I approach life like a child or an athlete. A young child gains confidence in new abilities through repetition. An athlete strengthens his or her muscles through consistent workouts. Similarly, when I engage in my spiritual practice, I strengthen my awareness and discover my innate abilities. I have the energy and perseverance to do what is mine to do. As I explore my skills, I cultivate my confidence. In my daily prayer time, I align with my divine nature. I listen, and I trust. I envision myself claiming all the courage I need to take on new responsibilities. I have confidence in my talents and skills. With a clear intention and faith in the Christ within, I achieve my full potential.
Do not, therefore, abandon that confidence of yours; it brings a great reward.—Hebrews 10:35

Thursday, January 1, 2015

Let Go Let God with New Beginnings

I am ready and willing to start anew!
Today I begin anew! I welcome fresh opportunities to make positive changes in my life. With the help of God, I maintain my intentions affirmatively and work toward my goals. If I tried to make a change in the past but did not succeed, I realize that, in truth, I did not fail. I simply tried an approach that did not work. I learned from my efforts, and they moved me forward. By discovering what didn’t work, I am one step closer to success! New beginnings spur innovative ideas and revive my energy. I have the will and desire to begin anew, and I persevere to follow my calling. I am ready for a new day, the beginning of the rest of my life, and I infuse fresh energy into all my endeavors.
A new heart I will give you, and a new spirit I will put within you.—Ezekiel 36:26
