Let Go Let God be Protected

I am grateful for the protection of divine love.
At times I may have felt unsafe and sought safety, but I understand that the Lord of my being provides the well-being I need. That certainty is a consistent reminder throughout the Bible, from Deuteronomy 31:6, “It is the Lord your God who goes with you; he will not fail you or forsake you” to Romans 8:31, “If God is with us, who is against us?” As I enter into the new year, I remember and give thanks that I am protected and loved. I also welcome the opportunity to be a source of love and nurturing for all living beings and for the planet itself. By being an extension of God’s protecting presence, I affirm and strengthen my own sense of security. I am grateful for the protection of divine love.
Learn to do good; seek justice, rescue the oppressed, defend the orphan, plead for the widow.—Isaiah 1:17

Let Go Let God Live with Purpose

I live and grow into my purpose by expressing my true self.
An example of divine order can be seen in the gentle unfolding of a rosebud into a beautiful bloom. The rose naturally fulfills its purpose by sharing its beauty with the world. In the same way, divine order works through me. I turn to God-life within for my hidden treasures to unfold and express. Divine life supports me in expressing the unique gifts—treasures in my heart—that have been within me since birth. I let all that is true in me shine and radiate into the world. Just as the rosebud gives way to what it is meant to be, I, too, give way to who I am in Truth. I live and grow into my purpose by expressing my true self.
And he said to them, “Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like the master of a household who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old.”—Matthew 13:52

Let Go Let God with Wisdom

I listen to my inner wisdom and follow divine direction.
Wisdom is a gift, part of my spiritual makeup that points me toward my good. When I face uncertainty, I tune in to my inner wisdom. As I follow my guidance, I feel the rightness of my decisions. I wait for divine intuition that I am doing what is right for me in a particular time and situation. I use my gift of wisdom to make choices large and small: to eat good food in the right amounts, to spend my resources wisely, to choose the job that fulfills and blesses me. As I listen to the divine presence within, my wisdom grows. I trust this inner power to help me discern what is right and to provide good judgment for the best course of action. I give thanks for God’s presence within that guides me. I listen to my inner wisdom and follow divine direction.
Live, and walk in the way of insight.—Proverbs 9:6

Let Go Let God as Inner Peace

I am at peace—one with the Presence of pure being.
Jesus taught the comforting news that all people are one with God. Inner peace comes when I shift my focus from the external to the internal—the presence of God within me. If I try to experience peace based upon my attachment to the world around me, I probably will not find that same lasting peace. Things in the physical world are constantly changing and out of my control. Yet I can access the source of infinite peace at any time because it is constant and always available to me. I make a daily practice of aligning my mind, body, and soul with the Christ Consciousness through meditation and prayer, and I am able to access the peace within. I am at peace—one with the Presence of pure being.
On that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you.—John 14:20

Let Go Let God through Life

One with God, I am the architect of my life. I build my best life.
I am the architect of my life. My thoughts and actions shape my experience. As I think positively and act affirmatively, I affect every experience I encounter, bringing order to the world around me. If conditions in my life change in a way that is not part of my plan, I do not lose heart—rather I turn within and realign. I redraw the blueprint of my life, knowing divine order is the foundation on which my life stands. I view each change or challenge as an opportunity to realign. I hold to my faith and let my inner light shine. I embrace the moment and look for the blessing—what I can give to and what I can learn from each experience. I continually create the life that is best for me.
Now set your mind and heart to seek the Lord your God. Go and build the sanctuary of the Lord God.—1 Chronicles 22:19

Let Go Let God with Imagination

With the power of imagination, I envision new possibilities in my life.
Imagination is the power that pulls me through challenges in my life and the faculty that illumines the wisdom of God. I strengthen my imagination through simple practices that allow my thoughts to expand. Consciously thinking outside the box, I practice doing things in new and different ways. Imaginative play can be cultivated by drawing with crayons, collecting images that inspire me, and writing in a journal. Such activities release limitations and invite inspiration. With the power of imagination, I envision new possibilities and manifest them in my life.
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 It's Christmas

I welcome the rebirth of Christmas spirit into my heart today.
The spirit of Christmas shines in and through me today. Whether Christmas Day is filled with favorite foods, gifts, and celebration with family and friends or is one of quiet observance, I am filled with Christmas spirit. Throughout this holy day, I am mindful to reflect on what the birth of Jesus means to me. I experience a joyous rebirth of love, wonder, and light. I welcome the richness of cherished traditions, of childhood wonder and anticipation, and the timeless story of a child’s birth. As the angel said, “I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people.” Today I celebrate with great joy, I give and receive with love, and I treasure the living presence of the Christ in all people.
You will have joy and gladness, and many will rejoice at his birth.—Luke 1:14

Let Go Let God on Christmas Eve

I am ready to give birth to new expressions of Spirit as I release limitations.
In one story the shepherds have left their sheep; in another the Wise Men have completed their journey. Joseph stands in loving support as Mary prepares for the birth of a new light into the world. I contain all these energies within my consciousness—the fear, the confusion, the anticipation, the joy. I cannot know what the new year will bring or predict just how my newborn Christ commitment will express. It is enough to be still and at peace, to embrace the uncertainty. I appreciate the choices that have brought me to this moment, the sources of love and support I’ve had along the way. Everything that I’ve experienced has prepared me for this holy night, as I commit to “giving birth” to new expressions of my true Christ Self in the world.
Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace among those whom he favors!—Luke 2:14

Let Go Let God in the Silence

I find peace and love in the Silence.
I quiet myself as I enter my prayer and meditation time. In the stillness, I let the peaceful silence surround and enfold me. If my mind wanders, I gently bring it back to focus on my Source. As my mind calms, I feel God all around me. Prayer and meditation times strengthen me in ways I never imagined. Despite any outer conditions, I can turn inward to find peace and calm. Even in the darkness of night, the light is present, for God’s presence is always there. I open my heart and mind to divine love and peace that fill my soul. As I prepare myself for the upcoming celebration of the Christ child, I give thanks for the gift of this silent night for reflection.
In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and in trust shall be your strength.—Isaiah 30:15

Let Go Let God Celebrate

I celebrate the glory of God with all that I am and in everything that I do!
Life provides many opportunities for celebration—birthdays and holidays, milestones like marriages, births, graduations, or promotions. Even during mundane moments, opportunities exist for celebration. Every day I can honor and praise my life and the power of God that lies within me. I might find it challenging to celebrate in moments of sorrow or despair, but celebration does not have to mean throwing a party or feeling happy. I celebrate when I see God in all things, and when I trust in divine order working in my life and others’ lives. I praise God daily as I practice my faith and celebrate every moment of life as a gift. In everything that I do and with everything that I am, I strive to celebrate God.
Do everything for the glory of God.—1 Corinthians 10:31

Let Go Let God Renew Strength

In stillness, I renew my strength.
When I make it a regular routine to rest in the Silence of my own being, I am able to approach every life circumstance with unbounded faith and strength. I am grateful for my steady practice of inner stillness. Even in the most trying of times, I am readily able to maintain emotional stability and fortitude. Faith allows me to persevere with tireless hope and optimism. Even when facing an unusually daunting task list, I proceed with robust joy and vigor. I am able to complete every essential activity in my day. Even while pursuing seemingly impossible dreams, I exercise unflappable mental strength. I am able to stay the course in all that is mine to do because I rely on the infinite strength of Spirit, which is the very essence of my own being.
Seek the Lord and his strength, seek his presence continually.—1 Chronicles 16:11

Let Go Let God Receive

I prepare to receive as I give without an expectation of return.
With a few moments of consciously breathing in and out, I am reminded of the importance of releasing in order to receive. Similarly, in my everyday life, I prepare to receive when I am open to giving. I make room in my heart and life to receive love, compassion, and understanding by giving in kind. This may be a conscious practice, yet it becomes so much a part of me that it seems independent of my conscious awareness. My intent is sincere, for I do not give in order to receive. As I give with no thought of return, I open the way for blessings to flow continuously from a heart attuned to the Christ Presence within.
These are the ones who, when they hear the word, hold it fast in an honest and good heart, and bear fruit with patient endurance.—Luke 8:15

Let Go Let God through Givng

I freely express my giving heart.

I awaken a fountain of joy deep within my heart when I am willing to let it flow forth. I envision myself as an outlet of generous spirit and feel it moving within me, ready to express wherever I go and in whatever I do. As I focus my attention on this abundance within, I notice it moving—first as a trickle, then as a stream, and finally as a rushing cascade of positive and beneficial energy. My generosity eagerly moves out into the world for the benefit of all. I am mindful of the opportunities I have to share this outpouring of energy that blesses others. No opportunity is too small to express kindness and generosity. I embrace each one as a sacred encounter with Spirit.
Each of you must give as you have made up your mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.—2 Corinthians 9:7

Let Go Let God Express Healing

I am an ever-renewing expression of Infinite Life.
With the totality of mind, body, and spirit, we are constantly expressing healing and renewal whether we are aware of it or not. Even during the rush of physical activity and the quiet of rest, we are being renewed. We are physical beings created with the capacity to heal, yet we are more. Made in the image and likeness of God, we are spiritual beings that are eternal, infinite expressions of God. As we cooperate with this truth—spirit, mind, and body—we are living the truth of who we are. Our thoughts of health and strength are powerful messages that align us wholly with our very nature as creations of life. We are ever-renewing expressions of Infinite Life.
And he sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal.—Luke 9:2

Let Go Let God in Joy

I expand my own joy as I share my blessings with others.
The poet Rabindranath Tagore wrote: “I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy.” During the holidays, I remember the true spirit of the season, which is the spirit of giving. My service to others can be as simple as sharing a smile with a stranger or sharing words of gratitude. It might be as involved as volunteering at a homeless shelter or offering childcare to a harried friend. With a full heart I willingly and lovingly share my joy with others today. As I focus on abundant generosity rather than seeking or getting this season, my spirit is uplifted. I experience joy and peace—the greatest gifts of the season!
For you shall go out in joy, and be led back in peace.—Isaiah 55:12

Let Go Let God all is in Divine Order

Divine order is always at work in my life and in the universe.
Seasons change, the sun and moon rise and set, and my heart beats—all without my instruction or even my permission. Divine order is at work, even when it is not easy for me to see. I might even question that divine order exists when it appears that chaos is happening in my life. I simply cannot perceive the bigger picture. That is exactly when I need to remind myself: Divine order is always at work in my life and in the universe! Affirming divine order helps put me in a positive and hopeful frame of mind. When I let go and let God be in charge of all my life’s circumstances, I demonstrate trust in God and a faith in a higher outworking of all. I feel relief, knowing Spirit is in charge of all.
We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose.—Romans 8:28

Let Go Let God Believe

My faith supports me through joys and challenges.
Life is full of ups and downs, joys and challenges. While I may feel overwhelmed by them at times, one thing I can be sure of is that God and I are one. Divine life within assures me I am abundantly provided for and that I can face any situation—great or small—that comes my way. Faith is a hard concept to define in a logical way, for it is intangible and personal. I believe that I am not walking this path called life alone. I believe that the presence of God is with me and within me, leading me in right ways and strengthening me. My faith supports me through joys and challenges, and I am grateful for the hope it brings me in times of need.
No distrust made him waver concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong in his faith as he gave glory to God.—Romans 4:20

Let Go Let God be Free

I am a child of God, free to express my true self.
Every day I am called to new experiences of freedom. I consider these words written by Richard and Mary-Alice Jafolla: “This moment ... is a brand-new moment in your life. You can choose to be more relaxed, more trusting, more forgiving, more loving. You can choose to be whatever you want. The question is: Are you treating this moment in a new way?” I am a child of God, capable, strong, loved, and free to express my true self. I am not bound by outgrown beliefs. I observe my thoughts, words, and actions and focus on that which is positive, supportive, and constructive. I embrace this moment as an opportunity to make new choices. I am free now to choose and experience my good.
And you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.—John 8:32

Let Go Let God Find Comfort

I find comfort in the wonders of God all around me.
At times, challenges or worries may seem to block my way. These things often bring on frustration and sadness. They can keep me from seeing the blessings I have experienced in my life. When I feel this way, I take time to quiet myself. I become calm and peaceful in the stillness, reminded that there is so much more to life than worry and fear. I visualize beautiful places that fill my heart and mind with awe. I smell the flowers. I watch birds and animals that bring a smile to my face. The more I notice, the more that come to mind. The list is endless and each reminder of God’s amazing gifts fills me with strength, confidence, and joy. I can now move forward, finding comfort in the wonders of God all around me!
This is my comfort in my distress, that your promise gives me life.—Psalm 119:50

Let Go Let God Shine Guidance

Divine light shines in and through me as a beacon of understanding.
Until light enters a room, finding my way through the darkness can be difficult. In the same way, unless the level of my soul’s light is increased, there is little chance of discerning spiritual understanding. If I need more divine guidance, I must step up my vibrational energy and increase the light of my soul. One way I can do that is to focus the lens of my mind on a positive spiritual statement such as an affirmation or prayer throughout the day. This can serve as a mental focus to direct the energy of my soul into a greater intensity. As I shine the light of my inner being, a divine radiance begins to fill even the darkest corners of my mind and opens up my heart to greater understanding.
Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.—Genesis 1:3

Let Go Let God in Relationships

I embrace the sacred opportunity in every relationship.
As I reflect on the relationships in my life, I appreciate their wide variety. From time spent with those I hold dear to a simple smile exchanged in the checkout line, every connection I make provides an opportunity to shine light into someone’s life—whether for an instant or a lifetime. I approach every relationship in my life aware of its sacred nature, ready to shine my Christ Light. I look for opportunities to share joy, create healthy boundaries, value the unique expression of God that each person is, and see parts of myself reflected in others. I recognize this sacred awareness in every connection I make, and I grow in Spirit. The possibility for spiritual evolution exists in every relationship I have, if I simply allow myself to see it.
Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus.—Philippians 2:5

Sunday, December 10, 2017

Let Go Let God with Hope

I behold the wonder of God.
Watching children discover the wonders of life reminds me that God is the source of life at the center of everyone. Holding this truth in mind, I know that each and every creation is precious to God. Because I know that all of nature is to be treasured, I help preserve the environment that supports the abundance of life. I honor God by honoring all creation because of our shared sacred heritage. Nothing can come between individuals or nations except our resistance to accepting who we are as God’s created. As I view the abundance and diversity of life with wonder, I take in the awesomeness of God that continues to unfold. I am eager to live from an awareness of the sacred presence that sustains all life.
Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.—Matthew 18:5

Let Go Let God Provide Prosperity

My life is filled with an overflowing measure of God’s goodness.
I am a beloved child of God. Rooted in this awareness, I affirm prosperity as my divine inheritance. I believe in the sufficiency of God as my source and supply. There is no good being withheld from me. My life is filled with an overflowing measure of blessings. In my daily prayers, I give thanks to God as the inexhaustible source of all life. I am grateful for divine healing energy that flows through my body. I embrace the peace that washes over me when challenges appear. I express joy-filled gratitude that my physical needs are met. Like a magnet, this practice of gratitude draws ever more abundance to me. Every spiritual desire of my heart is fulfilled.
And God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that by always having enough of everything, you may share abundantly in every good work.—2 Corinthians 9:8

Friday, December 8, 2017

Let Go Let God Forgive

I appreciate my innate capacity to forgive.
When I practice personal forgiveness, I free myself from the chains that have kept me bound to the past and I align myself with Jesus’ vision. This opens the way for me to see the glory that surrounds and fills me. I take a moment to stand in appreciation of my capacity to forgive. The choice I make to release the past is mine to make and it cannot be taken from me. Through forgiveness, I make myself available to the Divine. I am no longer distracted by the outer world for I am attuned to the presence of God. I forgive myself for holding on to limiting, false beliefs about who I am, and I let go of the past. New, bright understanding of my true nature replaces old, worn-out beliefs.
But there is forgiveness with you, so that you may be revered.—Psalm 130:4

Thursday, December 7, 2017

Let Go Let God Pray For Others

Praying for others is a double blessing.
Prayer is my time of connection with the perfect wholeness of Spirit, which is also our nature. First, I center in the perfect life and love that is the essence of my divine self. I then lift up the light of Spirit as it shines in others. I see others as they truly are, spiritually whole and free. I hold a vision of wholeness for people I don’t know, understanding the value of adding my positive energy to the greater vibration in our world. Sometimes I see the essence in others that they have forgotten or have yet to discover for themselves. If I feel they are receptive to my prayer support, I share my prayer practice with those I hold in prayer. Knowing the truth of my wholeness and then holding it for others is a double blessing.
Pray in the Spirit at all times in every prayer and supplication.—Ephesians 6:18

Wednesday, December 6, 2017

Let Go, Let God

I let go and open the way to new and bountiful good.
When I clean out my closet, I get rid of material things I no longer use. In the same way, I practice letting go of ideas or habits that no longer serve me. They may have been important at one time, but my philosophy has evolved. Perhaps I’ve grown beyond an idea or inclination that no longer feeds my soul. In the practice of letting go, I take stock of what I have or what I believe or what I need. I release the intangible thoughts and habits, and in doing so, I am helping myself. As I affirm I let go and let God, I feel liberated. I no longer feel tied to any thing or thought. This act of surrender opens the way to abundant blessings. I let go; I let God work in and through me.
Put these things into practice … so that all may see your progress.—1 Timothy 4:15

Tuesday, December 5, 2017

Let Go Let God Share World Peace

I am one with God and all humanity in a universe of love and peace.
Jesus told us that the greatest commandment was to love God, and the second was to love your neighbor as yourself. In practice, loving God may come more easily for me than loving my neighbor. Since God is love, it is up to me to open my heart and love all, without judgment and without hesitation. When I exhibit patience and understanding, I feel the warmth of God’s love. I choose, therefore, to be an expression of God’s love as I provide acceptance and support. God’s love touches my heart whenever I give it away to others. As I give someone hope and encouragement, my spirits are lifted too. Truly, I love God, and I love my neighbor.
“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.” This is the greatest and first commandment.—Matthew 22:37-38

Let Go Let God Practice Meditation

I experience oneness through the art of meditation.
Pablo Picasso once said, “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” I practice meditation as an art form that cleanses the dust of my mind. Like an artist absorbed in a craft, when I meditate upon God, I become engulfed in the present moment. The art of meditation may be practiced in a multitude of expressions. Allowing myself to experiment with different forms, I develop the styles that best suit me. I may explore meditation in silence or with instrumental music. I can practice centering meditation, focusing my thoughts on a sacred word or phrase. Mindfulness practice allows me to be fully aware of my senses and my thoughts in the present moment. I experience oneness through the art of meditation.
My mouth shall speak wisdom; the meditation of my heart shall be understanding.—Psalm 49:3

Sunday, December 3, 2017

Let Go Let God with Faith

Spiritual understanding is always available through my Christ Self.
My mind “knows what it knows” through the input of my senses and experiences. While practical choices can easily be made through this knowledge, spiritual understanding is not a function of mind. I access it when I am prayerfully centered in the energy of my heart. It is not always specific, and it may not seem immediately relevant. Spiritual understanding provides me with a feeling of security and peace—a sense of being exactly where I am meant to be at any given moment. Spiritual understanding guides me through every choice. In faith, I know that God’s power is greater than any circumstance, and I call upon that energy for every choice or decision.
Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known. —Jeremiah 33:3

Let Go Let God as Divine Power

Divine power is everywhere present— eternal and unlimited.

Every physical power is limited and temporary. The power of nature’s storms lasts minutes or days. The power of a fire is spent when the fuel is consumed. Only the power of the Divine endures beyond the reaches of our human concept of time and beyond the limits of our human understanding. It is this divine power everywhere present that can also heal the wounds and damage I may experience. Like a brave flower pushes up through volcanic ashes, Spirit in me nudges me to live and to love beyond the pain of earthly storms. When I feel brokenhearted, divine love enfolds me. When my body falters, Perfect Life stirs within and heals. What I perceive as lost, Spirit restores. I give thanks that divine power is eternal and unlimited.
Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and sustain in me a willing spirit.—Psalm 51:12

Friday, December 1, 2017

Let Go Let God in Synchronicity

I am attuned to God’s blessings that are continually being revealed.
Receiving a phone call from someone I have been thinking about; experiencing a dream that gives me clarity about a troubling situation; finding an object that I thought I had lost. These are examples of synchronicity —divine coincidences—that occur when I may need them the most. These divine coincidences are God Life in action. Prayer helps me synchronize—mind, body, and spirit—with the wisdom and power of God. The more attuned I become to the Divine, the more aware I am of the many coincidences that come my way. It is as if blinders have been taken off to reveal blessings that have always been in front of me. I see the world in a new, exciting way! I am attuned to God’s blessings that are continually being revealed.
Before they call I will answer; while they are yet speaking I will hear.—Isaiah 65:24

Let Go Let God be Unique

I am a unique being, divinely and purposefully created.
Standing on a beach, the grains of sand may appear to all be the same. On closer inspection, however, I see that each is uniquely different and beautiful. I, too, am divinely, purposefully created. Just like a grain of sand, I am a unique being—remarkable and unlike any other. I may believe that I have no qualities that make me stand out, but God created me as an individual who has a special purpose. If I find myself stuck in negative thinking, I learn how to change my beliefs. The more I get to know myself and pursue my talents and interests, the more I see the truth of who I truly am. I accept and embody my true self—a unique being, divinely and purposefully created!
Wonderful are your works; that I know very well. —Psalm 139:14

Wednesday, November 29, 2017

Let Go Let God Share World Peace

I follow Jesus’ example and express goodwill to all.
On an individual level, I may think that there is not much I can do about world conditions. Still, I remember Jesus’ words, “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) Rather than pondering how one person such as myself can make a difference, I affirm: Peace. I then take that affirmation out into my world, following Jesus’ example and expressing goodwill to all. I am a peacemaker in all of my relationships and interactions with others. I share with all that world peace is possible when we each know and live from a place of peace within ourselves.
And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.—Philippians 4:7

Tuesday, November 28, 2017

Let Go Let God Refresh

Breathing out stress, I breathe in rejuvenation!
With ever-increasing demands on my attention and time, the risk of burnout is ever-present. If I feel overloaded, I pause, take a few deep breaths, and remember Spirit’s revitalizing power within me. I exhale worry and inhale faith. I exhale confusion and inhale clarity. I exhale weariness and inhale new life. As I breathe, I rest gently in the knowing that I am enough and everything I need for my highest good is unfolding in divine timing. As the awareness of Truth refreshes my soul, I am able to move forward with a sense of fulfillment. With a replenished spirit, I am able to make wise and self-loving choices about how I spend my precious time and energy each and every day.
I will satisfy the weary, and all who are faint I will replenish.—Jeremiah 31:25

Monday, November 27, 2017

Let Go Let God Appreciate

I appreciate all that I AM.
To recognize with gratitude is to honor someone or something. Am I appreciating myself and those around me? My true nature—my I AM—is born of the Divine. I am stronger than I believe. Living from my spiritual essence, I enjoy more peace, power, and appreciation than I could ever imagine. I cherish my relationships and carefully nurture them. I have a full, rich life with divine beings that I respect and admire. My experiences in life can also be gratifying, even during painful times. Each one is an opportunity to learn and grow along my spiritual journey. Practicing gratitude opens the way to greater happiness. I appreciate all that I AM.
Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.—1 Thessalonians 5:18

Sunday, November 26, 2017

Let Go Let God Accept Comfort

I move through life in comfort and peace.
Jesus assures his followers in the Sermon on the Mount, “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.” I gratefully accept that comfort for myself today. Whatever I may mourn—people, habits, beliefs—I am comforted knowing that my sense of grief is simply a reaction to change, and change is an essential part of my spiritual journey. Moving through change can be challenging and even painful, but comfort is always available if I stay centered on myself as the Christ expression I AM. Jesus did not pity “those who mourn.” Rather, he declared that they are blessed. As I acknowledge and move through any sense of loss, I find courage for everyday living.
Sing for joy, O heavens, and exult, O earth ... For the Lord has comforted his people, and will have compassion on his suffering ones.—Isaiah 49:13

Saturday, November 25, 2017

Let Go Let God as Prayer

I live life as a prayer.
My prayers expand beyond mere words spoken to God. My thoughts and emotions are also part of my prayers. I am always transmitting them. I am praying most effectively when what I say, think, feel, and do is aligned with that for which I pray. When I pray for healing, I affirm wholeness; I focus on feelings of peace and well-being. I believe wholeheartedly in the power of God’s presence at work within me. I take actions to care for my body’s physical needs of food and rest. I visualize my body healthy, whole, and functioning well. My prayers are echoed throughout my being. With awareness, intention, and practice, I develop and strengthen my prayer habit as a holistic and constant aspect of how I approach life. I live life as a prayer.
Devote yourselves to prayer.—Colossians 4:2

Friday, November 24, 2017

Let Go Let God be Protected

Keeping my focus on God protects me.
I am the director of my thoughts. At times my attention may dwell on the outer world of my senses and the old messages I hear in my head. Yet Spirit reminds me that I have the ability to focus my attention on the divine truth available through my oneness with God. It is this Truth that protects me from the fear and unhappiness of temporary appearances. I focus on divine love within me and any illusion I have of being alone or unlovable is eradicated. I cannot be lost or without guidance for God is everywhere present in every moment. Focusing on the infinite and eternal power of the Divine is my protection from fear generated by believing some person or circumstance in the world has a power greater than God. Focused on God, I am at peace.
You show me the path of life. In your presence there is fullness of joy.—Psalm 16:11

Let Go Let God in Thanksgiving

I am thankful for the ever-present, all-powerful spirit of God.
The words of thanksgiving that I share with others resonate from my heart and soul. I feel a glow of gladness throughout my being when I pass along how thankful I am for another. With gratitude, I let family and friends know they are blessings in my life. I remember those who are not with me today but most certainly hold a place in my heart. Paul, in his message to the Philippians, said, “I thank my God every time I remember you.” These words remind me that praying for and remembering others strengthens my attitude of gratitude. Most of all, I am thankful for the ever-present, all-powerful spirit of God within me and within all others. 

So the people ate the food of the festival for seven days ... giving thanks to the Lord the God of their ancestors.—2 Chronicles 30:22

Let Go Let God in Prosperity

I am a steward of divine abundance. I give and receive with gratitude.
My divine inheritance is unlimited blessings, and with great joy and gratitude, I accept that I am heir to the kingdom within. I set aside any thoughts of lack or limitation, for God’s good is unlimited and inexhaustible. I give thanks for the divine gifts of life, love, and wisdom, accepting them as tools toward a prosperous life. I use them wisely and share with others the bountiful blessings I receive with generosity. In faith I know that giving creates a void that will be quickly and lovingly filled. Whatever my need, I know it will be met. I am a steward of divine abundance. I give and receive with gratitude.
Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?—Matthew 6:26

Let Go Let God Forgive

I open my heart to God and freely forgive.
Making mistakes or errors in judgment can happen. Anytime that I find myself in that position, I hope and pray that others find it in their hearts to forgive me. I extend that same courtesy as well. Am I forgiving the errors of others? Can I be free of resentment and forgive people whom I feel have wronged me? With God as my source, I am compassionate and understanding. I view situations from a higher perspective. I release negative thoughts and replace them with positive ones that heal and renew. What a joy it is to release old resentments and embrace new relationships through the power of forgiveness.
“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 through Inner Peace

I center myself in the presence of infinite peace.
At the end of the day, when I am alone with my thoughts, do they stray to what I should have, would have, or could have done differently? Rather than wasting time reflecting on the past and what cannot be changed, I center myself in the presence of pure, infinite peace. Peace is my natural state of being and when circumstances threaten to disrupt that sense of well-being, I turn within to reconnect with my spiritual nature. There I find the serenity I seek. I am filled with a steady flow of spiritual energy and strength that enables me to relax, rest, and renew. I let go of the should-haves and embrace the possibilities that are before me. I quiet my heart and mind by centering myself in the presence of infinite peace.
To set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace. —Romans 8:6

Let Go Let God Express Grace

In grace, I release every sense of limitation.
The spiritual idea of grace is often considered in terms of related words such as gracious and graceful . They suggest a sense of grace as a quiet state of consciousness that helps to create an easy, peaceful life experience. Grace can be all of that, but it is so much more! Grace is the power I lovingly convey whenever I recognize and express my Christ Presence. The Bible reminds me that Stephen—one of the earliest converts—being “full of grace and power, did great wonders and signs among the people.” In expressing the quality of grace, I find the clarity, peace, and power to accomplish the spiritual work that is mine to create. In grace, I release every sense of limitation.
For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.—Romans 6:14

Let Go Let God there is Potential

In the void lies the potential for everything.
Some days, my life may seem unchanging. I may feel stuck in a transition in my life, in between what was and what is yet to be. I begin to wonder what Spirit has for me to be and do. Turning my thoughts to Spirit, I calm my questioning mind and remember the beginning of everything is nothingness. When nothing is certain, everything is possible. I treasure my time in the sacred silence of prayer and meditation. Setting aside any worry or convictions about what should be happening, I create space for the emerging good Spirit has for me. Open and receptive to divine nudges, I take action on my guidance and new paths open before me. I am content in the stillness, confident in the divine potential within me to take shape and appear.
In the beginning when God created the heavens and the earth, the earth was a formless void.—Genesis 1:1

Let Go Let God Have Faith

I have mountain-moving faith!
I believe beyond any doubt that Spirit within guides me to my highest and best. As I face challenges, I remain faith-filled that I have all I need to meet and exceed any difficulty. Jesus said that faith the size of a mustard seed could move mountains. With my faith, I am able to discern what is mine to do. I am not discouraged or dissuaded by the opinions of others. Rather, I look within to the guidance of Spirit, and I listen in the Silence with an open mind. I know all things are possible, so I look beyond current circumstances to the higher Truth of my being. I have mountain-moving faith to do whatever I am called to do in the most positive ways for the highest good.
For truly I tell you, 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.—Matthew 17:20

Let Go Let God Listen

My life is guided by the eternal, loving voice of God-life within.
In the Gospel narratives, Jesus frequently begins and ends parables with the command, “Listen!” It is a call to not only hear the messages with our ears, but to listen with spiritual understanding. I pray to lift myself into a state of conscious awareness with God so that I may truly listen to what is being spoken. I take time apart from my daily activities in the world to center myself in silent prayer. I pray not in supplication but from a desire to fully understand my own completeness and spiritual nature. When I listen to life using my divine inner guidance, I hear the inner calling of God whisper sweetly to me. I listen for spiritual understanding, for wisdom, and for divine ideas. My life is guided by the eternal, loving voice of God-life within.
Let anyone with ears listen!—Matthew 11:15

Let Go Let God as a Mentor

Encouraging and nurturing others brings me joy.
Throughout our lives we will find people who make impacts in meaningful ways. Their wisdom and knowledge comes from their own experiences that they willingly share to benefit others. I, too, can offer a helping hand to someone else when I accept the role of being a mentor. Recognizing that caring and nurturing my fellow human beings is a sacred responsibility, I remain patient, kind, and compassionate. ­­I impart knowledge, always encouraging others to stretch their wings and to step out with faith and confidence. The challenge to learn and grow is made easier with self-confidence and faith. As I watch those I mentor excel and see their abilities grow, I am filled with joy and gratitude for the opportunity to be of service.
Give instruction to the wise, and they will become wiser still.—Proverbs 9:9
