Let Go Let God Use Imagination

I use my imagination wisely and focus on success. 
I use the power of imagination to bring ideas into being and to visualize answered prayers. When an inspired idea comes to me that I would like to create in my life, I use my mind to imagine what it would look like, how it would feel to achieve it, and the steps I will take to bring it about. I infuse my images with color, sound, aroma, and even taste. I see myself having achieved my goal. The thoughts and the images I hold in mind are creative; they shape divine substance and energy into manifestation. I exercise my imagination wisely by focusing on my heart’s desires as if steering toward a compass point. I use my imagination to help bring about success, healing, and the best outcomes.

With the gift of Imagination we expand our focus from the realm of divine ideas to the ways in which these gifts can manifest in our lives, and in the world we create together. Here the divine ideas are laying according to the choices we make from the rich gift of Imagination. We use our Imagination every time we make a choice based on what we believe, and on what we believe the outcome will be. If we choose to believe that the worst possible result will always occur, that will become our experience. If instead we fuel our Imagination with the gifts of Faith, Love, Strength, and Power, and if we maintain spiritual mastery over the input from our senses, we will know the joy of fulfilling our spiritual purpose.

Today I pause to imagine the life I am led to live for myself, and for the world. I know this vision is mine to achieve. I blend my Imagination with Faith and Love, and I express the Power to create new possibilities.

I will pray with the spirit, but I will pray with the mind also; I will sing praise with the spirit, but I will sing praise with the mind also.—1 Corinthians 14:15

Let Go Let God is the Power

The presence of God is my strength.
Wherever I am, God is there. This comforting statement affirms that the power of God is always in my life and always available to me. The key to accessing it is in acknowledging and consciously calling it forth. I may strive to meet challenges using only my individual initiative and power, forgetting to rely on the indwelling power of Spirit. However, when I realize I left God out and pause to open my mind and heart to the divine flow, I find my strength is renewed and my way is cleared. The presence and power of God is my strength and my help in all things. I affirm these words in order to align my consciousness with my Source.
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his power.—Ephesians 6:10

Let Go Let God in Wisdom

I am guided by divine wisdom.
Whether I’m aware of it or not, I already have the answers to any uncertainties—God, my source for all things. If I have questions or am seeking guidance, I envision and pray for the highest and best in myself. I live in God’s love and peace just as Jesus did when he fulfilled his full Christ potential.God guides me at all times and in all ways. When I turn within and listen to the still, small voice, I am listening to the wisdom of God. I am centered and certain when I accept this inner knowledge. With gratitude, I give thanks for God’s wisdom. With faith, I follow that guidance to make productive and love-filled decisions. I am guided by divine wisdom.

For wisdom will come into your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul.—Proverbs 2:10

Let Go Let God as Strength

God is my strength.

In my prayer times—my quiet moments with God—I make a conscious connection with strength, poise, and power. These words from the “Prayer of Faith” help ready my mind for that Divine connection:
God is my help in every need;
God does my every hunger feed;
God walks beside me, guides my way
Through every moment of the day.
I now am wise, I now am true,
Patient and kind, and loving, too;
All things I am, can do, and be,
Through Christ the Truth, that is in me.
God is my health, I can’t be sick;
God is my strength, unfailing, quick;
God is my all, I know no fear,
Since God and Love and Truth are here.

The Lord is my strength and my might.—Exodus 15:2

Let Go Let God Forgive

Forgiveness sets me free.

If I feel disconcerted or disconnected, I look within to see what changes I can make in order to reconnect with peace of mind. Often, I can heal the disconnect by doing my forgiveness work. I will never have true freedom without forgiveness. Forgiving another lightens my burdens, and it propels me toward my goals. I forgive others remembering, as Jesus did, that in absolute truth, “... they do not know what they are doing” (Luke 23:34). When I see another from this perspective, it is so much easier to let go of the resentments I held. I also forgive myself for what I did or did not do that caused another, or even myself, pain in any way. I made a mistake. I own up to it, and when possible I make amends. Forgiveness sets me free.

Your sins are forgiven.—Mark 2:5

Let Go Let God with Faith

I am filled with faith!
The twelve days of Christmas mark the time between Christmas Day and Epiphany. Since the beginning of Advent, I have expressed peace, love, and joy. I have seen results of my faith displayed before my eyes. As I have watched the positive results of my belief, my faith has grown.I am living my belief in the miracle-working power of God. With each day and in so many ways, I feel continuously connected to Spirit. I feel blessed and lifted to know God more with each circumstance I face, and with each breath I take. I have read, and I believe, that with God all things are possible. I am filled with faith!

If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, “Move from here to there,” and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.—Matthew 17:20

Let Go Let God Celebrate Christmas

I am one with the Spirit of faith, peace, love, and joy.

Today we celebrate the birth of Jesus—the Divine Master and humanity’s greatest hope. We rejoice that the Christ is born—and reborn—in us as unlimited, unceasing power, imagination, and understanding. The words that the angel proclaimed to the shepherds resound through my being: “Do not be afraid; for see—I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people.” Christ is reborn in me today as faith, peace, love, and joy. As I express these characteristics in all that I say and do, I am putting action to these gifts of the Christ. I am wonderfully, vibrantly alive, one with the spirit of faith, peace, love, and joy.
Do not be afraid; for see—I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people: to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is the Messiah, the Lord.—Luke 2:10-11

Let Go Let God through the Silent Night

I rest in the presence of the Christ Spirit.

I imagine how the night before Jesus’ birth might have been: A tired woman and man huddle in a stable, silently anticipating the arrival of a child. Beside them, humble animals watch quietly, undisturbed by these two strangers. A distance away, shepherds watch over their flock, unaware of an impending angelic visitor. Three kings rest in their camp, soon to begin a journey to honor the Christ child. The celebration of Jesus’ birth is an occasion for a rebirth of my awareness of the Christ Spirit within. Before I sleep this evening, I rest in the Presence. Tomorrow is the dawning of a new day of promise.
And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in bands of cloth, and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.—Luke 2:7

Let Go Let God Receive

I allow the gifts of Spirit to fill my heart.
I may find it easier to be a giver than a receiver. Today I choose to open my heart to unconditionally receive life’s tremendous gifts. God’s treasures can be found wherever I go—in the generous acts and kind words by others, through the affection of animals, and through the beauty of nature and art. I allow myself to fully accept God’s bounty into my heart not because of anything I have done, but because of who I am—a worthy child of God. I joyfully give thanks for the realization that I am a spiritual being, one with Universal Spirit. God loves me. I allow this revelation to sink in and fill my heart. This is the greatest gift I can ever receive, and I humbly accept it.
My people shall be satisfied with my bounty, says the Lord.—Jeremiah 31:14

Let Go Let God be Protected

Intuition guides my way.
Intuition is the diligent messenger of Spirit. Wherever I may be, I remain safe and secure by trusting the still, small voice of Spirit within to guide me. This voice might show up as a nudge to make a phone call to a certain person or as a hunch to take a different street than the one I habitually take. Following my intuition can sometimes feel completely irrational. Yet the more I listen to the voice of divine love, guidance, and wisdom within me, the more I realize its tremendous capacity to protect me from harm. I am grateful for this inner voice of Spirit, which never fades nor fails. Through it, I know where to go, what to say, and what to do in each moment for maintaining my safety, health, and well-being.
If we live by the Spirit, let us also be guided by the Spirit.—Galatians 5:25

Let Go Let God through Giving

Through giving, I receive.
The delight in children’s eyes as they open a gift brings joy to the giver. Tears of thanksgiving from someone receiving a helping hand can uplift the heart of the helper. Lending a hand in a friend’s time of need blesses them and me. Jesus taught that we should love others, sharing our time and attention, expecting nothing in return. Doing so we create a situation through which we receive unimaginable blessings in return. Through giving, I receive. I share the blessings I have received and create a circle of love and giving that expands outward from me to bless me and everyone in my world.

Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap; for the measure you give will be the measure you get back.—Luke 6:38

Let Go Let God in Prosperity

My spirit rejoices in the infinite goodness of God.
My five senses are part of my abundance from God. With these senses, I take in the gifts this season brings: the touch of a loved one’s hand in mine, the welcoming aroma of scented candles, the dazzling site of colorful lights, the delicious taste of a fresh baked cookie, and the harmonious sounds of a Christmas carol. There is, however, a joy that takes me beyond what I perceive through my physical senses. With a deeper sense of Spirit, I am aware of the goodness of God that is evident as it moves in and through my life and all life continuously. My spirit does rejoice in the infinite goodness of God. I give thanks for the blessings of the past and present and I am thankful for those yet to be received.
God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.—John 4:24

Let Go Let God for World Peace

I bless the world with words of peace and actions of goodwill.
Words have power, so I select mine with care. If I find myself in a situation where there is contention or discord, I center myself before entering the conversation. Centered in God, I speak words that build up, that reinforce self-esteem, that inspire positive outcomes. Every positive thought, every optimistic statement, every constructive activity I take part in contributes blessings of peace and goodwill in the world. As I do what is mine to do, I know that others around the world are doing what is theirs to do. Peace in the world begins with peace in my heart, harmony in my words, and goodwill in my intentions.
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 with Joy

I am joyous, and I share my joy with others.
Smiles, laughter, sharing time with friends and family—these are all expressions and experiences of joy. Being joyful is not caused by the outer experiences of my life, rather it is the outflow of my inner nature. Joy is an attitude that I bring to life. When I pray, I get in tune with the harmony of my inner self. This place of perfect synchronicity is where joy flows, unbound and unlimited, bubbling up as smiles and laughter, confidence and courage. Whatever my day brings, I have the ability to approach it with a spirit of happiness and peace. Even in the most challenging situation, I have the option and the capacity to respond with a lightness of heart, opening the way for humor and acceptance. I am joyously alive!
You show me the path of life. In your presence there is fullness of joy.—Psalm 16:11

Let Go Let God be Free

I am free.
What is the value of freedom? To someone who has never experienced it or is restricted by law or the beliefs of others, freedom is priceless. The independence to do what we want to do, when and how we want to do it, is a gift. To choose our own actions and make our own decisions is priceless. I may feel limited and constrained, but these thoughts can be self-imposed. In prayer, I remind myself: I am free. Through the spirit of God in me, I have all the power I will ever need to claim and express divine freedom in every area of my life. At every moment I am free to be the best me that God created me to be.

For freedom Christ has set us free. Stand firm, therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.—Galatians 5:1

Let Go Let God in Meditation

As I meditate on the presence of God within, I find peace.
One evening after Jesus had been out teaching, his disciples were in a panic as a windstorm created massive waves that crashed against their boat. Jesus awoke and with a single command, stilled the winds and the waters. In my life, too, I sometimes allow outer circumstances to stir up feelings of fear in my mind. Yet I can calm the chaos by focusing my attention on the presence of God within. When my mind churns out of control, I stop and take a deep breath. I focus my attention on the love and peace of God. As I turn my mind to God, I feel my body begin to relax. My breathing and my thoughts slow, the waters of my mind settling into a placid calm. As I meditate on God, I feel deeply at peace.
You rule the raging of the sea; when its waves rise, you still them.—Psalm 89:9

Let Go Let God in Understanding

My understanding expands as I am in service to God.
My greatest joy is to be of service to God. When I open my heart as a conduit of love and understanding to all living creatures, my heart expands with spiritual understanding. Just as a lamp will not turn on without a current, so, too, do I need the dynamic power of God-life within for my spiritual understanding to manifest. In service, I experience a great increase in gratitude. Interacting with others, I know the unconditional love that is mine as God’s child. My ability to let go of judgment and forgive others reveals a deeper understanding of God’s unconditional love. Today I commit myself to be in service to God, to serve as Jesus served, and to open my heart to understanding.
Give me understanding, that I may keep your law and observe it with my whole heart.—Psalm 119:34

Let Go Let God as Life

I am the radiant life of God.
A popular hymn begins, “I am the radiant life of God.” These words are an affirmation that the spiritual life of God within continually renews and invigorates me. Acknowledging this, I tune in to a higher vibration. God is life and this life is born in me anew this Christmas season. The life of God expresses in all that I think, say, and do. I align with the divine energy of God through prayer. This connection allows the vitality of God to permeate my being. In these prayerful moments I remember that I am filled with the radiant life of God. As I join with the world in celebrating the birth of the Christ child, I feel deeply grateful for the gift of life. My prayer for the world this Christmas season is radiant life for all.
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life.”—John 14:6

Let Go Let God through Comfort

I am comforted and at peace through the loving presence of God.
The need for comfort is a basic necessity. From the moment we are born, we are comforted by a loved one’s voice or touch. As we grow older, that need may be met in other ways, but the underlying need is the same—we want to know that we are not alone; that there is a person or a presence loving us and helping us in our time of need. God is that presence in my life, my loving Comforter that brings strength and peace. In moments of fear or sadness, faith assures me that I am never alone. I realize that there are ups and downs that I will always face in life, but I do not face them alone. God is with me in every circumstance. This knowledge provides me with courage to face a new day. My mind and heart are comforted.
The Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace.—Numbers 6:26

Let Go Let God Provide Healing

My mind and body are whole, well, and strong.
When I am in optimal health, my body works like a well-oiled machine, with smooth efficiency. I fuel my body by eating nutritious foods and keep it in good shape by exercising on a regular basis. Walking or running, sitting or standing, I am aware of my body’s miraculous ability to adjust to what I am doing. But I am more than just my physical body. A healthy mind is equally important to my overall well-being. I exercise my mind and keep it active by participating in lively conversations, learning new things, and through prayer. I open my heart to God, and give thanks for a healthy mind, body, and spirit. God heals what needs to be healed, tuning me up for greater blessings ahead.
To set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.—Romans 8:6

Let Go Let God Love

God loves through me.
Love is many things to many people, but God’s love is all. I am God’s beloved child, and through my Creator I find happiness and contentment. I now share that love with others. I am God’s love in expression. I act from a place of faith, knowing that my actions will be a blessing to others. A smile, a kind word, a hug—all are ways I can give love to others. I can also share comfort simply by being there, by letting someone know that I am here for them when they need me. Just as I welcome the knowledge that I am loved, I extend the concept into the world by being loving. I carefully choose the right words and actions to let them know that I care. God loves me and loves through me.
O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever.—1 Chronicles 16:34

Let Go, Let God

I open my mind and allow God’s good to pour into my life.
The technique of visualization, creating a positive mental picture of something, reminds me that God-life within is actively at work in my life. When I need to release something in my life, I visualize my hand holding an object then gently releasing it. As it falls away, my hand is left empty and open to receive something else. Worn-out views clutter my mind and prevent new and healthy ideas from shaping my life’s experiences. Are there limiting thoughts getting in my way? If so, I let them go. I release the need to worry. By releasing those things that no longer serve me, I make space to receive the amazing good that God has for me.
Ask, and it will be given you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you.—Matthew 7:7

Let Go Let God with Divine Order

In sync with divine order, I realize my greatest potential.
There is a spiritual law and order that governs all life. Nothing and no one can break this law. When acting out of alignment with divine order, I might struggle with minimal success to accomplish even the smallest of goals. Yet when I consciously align my will and actions with the natural, orderly outworking of the Universe, I tap into a fountainhead of limitless imaginative and creative power. Spirit, which by nature is expressive, enfuses me with a rich supply of divine ideas uniquely suited to my soul. As I willingly surrender to the flow of Spirit, I experience synchronous events as an everyday occurrence. I realize my greatest dreams with absolute peace, grace, and ease. My life is in sync with divine order.
Great peace have those who love your law; nothing can make them stumble.—Psalm 119:165

Let Go Let God Pray for Others

I follow the Golden Rule and pray for others.
Spiritual leaders encourage the practice of praying for others. They are aware of how the power of prayer can unite people in love and create a positive flow of energy that permeates the planet. Jesus taught the concept of the Golden Rule, blessing all who came to him and encouraging them to give love in return. I, too, follow that practice in my everyday life. I say a prayer of gratitude for family and friends and all that they have done for me. I hold a thought of health and wholeness for those in need. I envision abundance and wisdom for people everywhere. My prayers for others create a flow of love, abundance, peace, and gratitude that spreads from person to person. I am love in action.
Do to others as you would have them do to you.—Luke 6:31

Let Go Let God in Wonder

I am unique, beautiful, and wonderfully made.
When I look into the eyes of a child, I see wonder, excitement, and a questioning spirit. Everything a child sees is remarkable and unique. I try to see my own world through this lens of newness. The sound of laughter, the glisten of frost or dew in the morning sunlight, the people I meet … all are reminders of the creative power of the universe. I, too, am a wonder. I am unique, beautiful, and wonderfully made. I look around and see beauty in everyone and everything I encounter. I am grateful for the ability to recognize the uniqueness of the world in which I live. Each day opens to new experiences, thoughts, and wonders.

I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; that I know very well.—Psalm 139:14

Tuesday, December 6, 2016

Let Go Let God Provide Guidance

I open my mind to the light of my being and answers are revealed.
When there are life-changing decisions to make, I keep my mind open to divine guidance. I am not alone in any time of decision-making. There is the light within me that shines the wisdom of God on right choices. This light is mine each time I open my mind to the all-knowingness of God. I may wonder how I can keep centered and calm when there are so many last-minute items on my to-do list. I begin by changing my focus from worry to divine guidance and feel immediate relief. My mind is clear of clutter, and I’m ready to follow where I am guided, which in truth was always available to me. The wisdom of God is my guide, each day, each step of the way.
But anyone united to the Lord becomes one spirit with him.—1 Corinthians 6:17

Let Go Let God Celebrate

I give thanks for the Christ within and for infinite good unfolding in my life.
December is a celebratory month! We commemorate the birth of Jesus, retelling the story of a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths being honored by the Three Wise Men, shepherds, and angels. We celebrate the Truth that Jesus taught: We are children of God, divine in nature. On an individual level, I celebrate the birth of Jesus and the Christ within me. I celebrate the divine qualities of light, life, love, and faith. I am thankful that my inner light—the Christ—guides me at all times. I gratefully acknowledge the perfect life of Spirit that flows through my body, energizing and renewing me. I rejoice in the spirit of love that flows to me and from me to bless others. I keep faith in my heart, continually inviting good into my life.
My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.—Luke 1:46-47

Let Go Let God with Inner Peace

The peace of Christ is reborn in my heart.
Amazingly, one small incident has the potential to throw my stress level into a tailspin. Perhaps I am late for an appointment and unable to find my car keys. Frantic searching and the rush of adrenaline causes my stress level to go higher. At such a time as this, I take a deep breath and turn my search within. Steady breaths and a focus on God-life within help me to restore my calm. In mind and spirit, I am sheltered in the depths of my soul where the peace of Christ abides. I am reborn to the peace of Christ and a calmness washes over me. I have chosen to have a heartfelt, peaceful connection to the Christ of my being. I can and do remain calm and serene. The peace of Christ is reborn in my heart.
You are in the Spirit, since the Spirit of God dwells in you.—Romans 8:9

Let Go Let God in Commitment

I devote my time and energy to those things that serve my highest good.
Every day there are many opportunities for me to direct my time, attention, and energy. When I am mindful about the commitments that I make, I am better able to honor those commitments joyfully. I give myself permission to take time before making decisions, and I allow myself to say “no.” I deserve balance in my life for it ensures I will be able to give my best to myself and others. When I devote my time and energy to the things that serve my highest good, I am able to honor the commitments that I make. If I have to make a difficult choice and say “no” to something, I trust that God will fill the void. As I take care of myself, I allow the highest good to unfold—not only for myself but for all others.
Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established.—Proverbs 16:3

Friday, December 2, 2016

Let Go Let God with Purpose

I live today with purpose.
As I begin my day, I use the creative power of my thoughts and words to affirm my purpose. Yes, I have tasks and responsibilities that I have to do, but when I become clear about why I am doing these things, I connect with my purpose. Charles Fillmore once wrote, “There is within man that which will open and place him in direct contact with universal knowledge and enable him instantly and continuously to draw forth anything he may wish to know.” If I am unclear about my intentions or purpose, I remember that I can cocreate with Spirit by choosing how I respond and interact with life. I choose thoughts, words, and actions that reflect my intention. I live with purpose.

The human mind may devise many plans, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will be established.—Proverbs 19:21

Thursday, December 1, 2016

Let Go Let God in Divine Appointment

I give thanks for the divine appointments I experience and the people I meet.
Every person I encounter, every event I am a part of, has a distinct purpose in my life. I may not be aware of it immediately, but I can be sure that the reason will be revealed to me at the right time. What may seem like a chance encounter today may change my life in some way at a later date. Perhaps I am the other person’s divine appointment? I may have smiled or said hello at the exact time they needed to see a friendly face. I could be politely holding the door open for someone whose hands are full at just the moment they are about to drop and break what they are carrying. I am open and ready for all of my divinely directed appointments.
Steadfast love and faithfulness will meet; righteousness and peace will kiss each other.—Psalm 85:10
