Let Go Let God as Willingness

A willingness to try new things brings freshness to my life.
There is great wisdom in the conventional saying, “You won’t know unless you try.” Countless opportunities appear in a lifetime, but without willingness to try new things, those experiences will be left undiscovered. When I stretch myself to try something new, I discover adventures, communities, foods, or interests I wouldn’t have ever known. Deep joy may result from my willing action to do something unfamiliar. Even if I decide that what I’ve tried is not for me, I gain experience and knowledge in the process of expanding beyond my usual activities. Today I purposely choose to do something new. With a willing heart and an open mind, I experience the freshness of life.
So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new!—2 Corinthians 5:17

Let Go Let God with Relationships

I am the hands, feet, eyes, and voice of God.
Love has been called the glue that holds the world together. So I strive to develop relationships that both feed my soul and bless others. I give thanks for friendships and family members and endeavor to treat all people with respect. I act toward others in the way I want to be dealt with. If I feel I have been treated with less respect than I deserve, I take the high road. I put myself in the other person’s place and respond with compassion and forgiveness. Communication is key to building and maintaining relationships. I take part in the exchange of ideas, encourage dialogue, and inspire growth. My kind, considerate words and actions help create an environment of peace. I am the hands, feet, eyes, and voice of God.
I give you a new commandment, that you love one another.—John 13:34

Let Go Let God With Faith

In the presence of faith, all fear vanishes.
Whenever we begin something new—starting a job, going back to school, moving to a different location—we may find ourselves both excited and anxious. During these times, we strengthen our faith by recalling the Truth: Spirit is with us wherever we go. We have faith that divine order is clearing the way for a smooth change, that connections will be made, and friendships formed. We are assured of success in all endeavors as we remember and live from the Truth that we are one with the Mind of God. Our anxieties dissipate, our fears replaced with excitement, and we move forward with confidence. Success and fulfillment are mine to claim. In the presence of faith, all fear vanishes.

Forgetting what lies behind … I press on toward the goal for the prize of the heavenly call of God in Christ Jesus.—Philippians 3:13, 14

Let Go Let God Dream

I hold a vision of equality for all people.
Martin Luther King Jr. stated he had a dream that America would one day live up to its ideal that all people are created equal. We are all created in the image and likeness of God. Every person has equal potential to express his or her divinity. To manifest the belief in equality for all people, I practice it in my interactions with others. I embody and express equality in my words and actions. Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream that one day his children would be judged not by outer appearances and the color of their skin, but “by the content of their character.” I can help to realize this dream by treating others in my life this way. I envision equality for all and express this truth in my life.
The Lord is the maker of them all.—Proverbs 22:2

Let Go Let God Be Prosperous

I open my mind to divine ideas, and new avenues of supply are revealed.
As I am paying bills, I may feel frustrated with my debt-to-income ratio. I pray for abundance and repeat affirmations. Why, then, does it seem as though the creative laws of abundance aren’t working for me? I am approaching prosperity from a belief in lack. My focus is on my perceived needs. Since what I focus on increases in my life, what I am doing is creating more needs—the opposite of my conscious intention. So I shift my focus to Spirit within. I learn to appreciate the ways in which prosperity is already present in my life. I open my mind to divine ideas, which immediately guide me to resources and channels. Prosperity comes to me in new and wonderful ways.
I the Lord test the mind and search the heart, to give to all according to their ways, according to the fruit of their doings.—Jeremiah 17:10

Let God Let God Be Free

Through the power of the indwelling Christ Presence, I am free and unlimited.
Just as a hot air balloon cannot soar when tied to the ground, so, too, challenges in my life may tie me down and keep me from rising to the highest heights of awareness. If negativity appears, I turn to the Christ Presence within. My thoughts create my experience of life, so I review any negative beliefs I am holding. I transform those beliefs into ones that are positive and productive. Through the power of choice and freewill, I let go and affirm: I am free and unlimited . I begin to feel a sense of liberation. There are no chains that bind me when I turn to the indwelling Christ Presence. As I let go of mental blocks, my spirit is free to soar like a colorful balloon in flight.
Be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect.—Romans 12:2

Let Go Let God Celebrate

I recognize and celebrate my spiritual growth.
I am an active participant in life’s unfolding. Even the smallest moments are worthy of celebration because I am reflecting God in all that I think, say, and do. As I express reverence and appreciation for what might seem like minor triumphs, I empower more of what I want, rather than what I do not want. I celebrate my spiritual growth, rejoicing in the times I took the high road in a conflict, the moments I chose love over a compulsion to be seen as right. Perhaps I choose to applaud the time I asked for needed help—and actually received it. Or I might elect to honor the moment I mustered the courage to speak my truth. I recognize and celebrate my accomplishments and my spiritual growth.
You shall celebrate with all the bounty that the Lord your God has given to you.—Deuteronomy 26:11

Let Go Let God Be Comforted

God is my comfort.
If I desire freedom from anxiety and worry, I need to take a break from any tendency to ponder “what could go wrong” scenarios. Clearing my mind, I turn within to my one true source of all comfort and overcoming. I relax into the shelter of Divine Presence. Any frazzled nerves are soothed. Anxiety from what seems lost or unavailable to me dissipates. Nothing can interfere with the assurance from my Creator that the unknown cannot disturb the peace of my soul. I receive the enrichment that strengthens me to the very core of my being. I am prepared to live wholly today and each new day. The presence of God is within me and everywhere present to comfort me.
O God, you are my God, I seek you, my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.—Psalm 63:1

Let Go Let God Provide Guidance

Open to divine direction, I am gently guided to my good.
Life’s lessons may not always be easy to learn, but life does not have to be difficult. I do not need to suffer to find my way forward. I have compassion for myself. In my quiet time of prayer I am reminded, “I am the beloved child; the treasured creation of the Divine.” The Universe supports me. I release any perceived need to do it all myself. I am not alone. I open my mind and my heart to the inspiration of divine direction. I am free to choose again and again, correcting my course with each new thought and the lessons of each new day. I respond to the nudge of Spirit that comes in a passage in a book or the words of a song. Open to divine direction, I am gently guided to my good.

Let your good spirit lead me on a level path.—Psalm 143:10

Let Go Let God Be of Service

I am a channel of God’s blessings.
Many people follow a call to serve humanity, finding fulfillment in teaching or working in ways to better the lives of others. I, too, can be of service, right where I am. I may choose to help a neighbor or participate in a program at a nearby school. I can imagine myself assisting in my place of worship or the local animal shelter. Once the ideas start to flow, I may have so many it’s difficult to decide on just one. So I set my goal based on this thought: My desire is to contribute joy into the lives of others and to my heart. Being of service is itself a reward. I step up to take my place as a channel for divine blessings—wherever I am and in whatever capacity I am able to serve.
Serve one another with whatever gift each of you has received.—1 Peter 4:10

Let Go Let God with Inner Peace

Peace dwells in the silence of my soul.
I am a creature of peace. My soul naturally gravitates toward peaceful people, places, and experiences. Peace is my very nature. There are sounds and images that instill a sense of harmony in my heart. A babbling stream, a breeze rustling the leaves of trees, the crackling of a fire, or the soft shimmering light of a candle bring comfort. These outer phenomena calm my mind and spirit and help me get in touch with internal peace. Whenever I need serenity and quietude, I call upon one of these sensory experiences to move me into the realization of who I am. I spend quiet time in the secret place of the Most High, reflecting and listening. Peace dwells in the silence of my soul.

And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.—Philippians 4:7

Let Go Let God My Source

I am never away from Spirit as I move through this life experience.
How often do we put a label on ourselves or others? We should never define or limit ourselves by the many roles we are called upon to play as we move through our human lives. There is no end to the infinite power of creation expressing through us. Our spiritual Source will never declare us to be complete. We are one through all eternity, always creating, always bringing more of our divinity into realization. We are never apart because we are one with Source—both individually and collectively. When we turn our thoughts to God and live as expressions of love, we extend the power of Spirit through every challenge we face and every choice we make.
Now the Son of Man has been glorified, and God has been glorified in him.—John 13:31

Let Go Let God as Joy

In joy, I experience all that life has to offer.
Like a bottomless well that never runs dry, a reservoir of happiness and peace lies deep within me. Joy does not depend on circumstances, so I can tap into this wellspring even when outer conditions in my life are causing me pain or suffering. True gladness is of the spirit and resonates through my life because I am divinely created with unlimited potential and possibilities. I am faith-filled and positive as I align my mind and heart with God. When I feel this joy, I feel strong and capable of handling any situation. The strength of God within me brings peace of mind and contentment, and nothing in the outer world can change that. In joy, I experience all that life has to offer.
Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.—Matthew 18:3

Let Go Let God Forgive

We are all worthy of forgiveness.
Jesus spoke of forgiveness throughout his ministry, and he demonstrated forgiveness time and time again. Why was this lesson often focused on? Perhaps because forgiveness is one of the most loving things we can do for ourselves and others; it is a way to honor one another as spiritual beings. Jesus forgave those who persecuted him and those who committed perceived sins or crimes out of his undying love for all people. He saw everyone as children of God and worthy of forgiveness. As I take this lesson to heart and open myself to the love of God, I understand the value of forgiveness. By letting go and forgiving another, I am freer and happier. I choose to live in a spirit of love as Jesus demonstrated.
Forgive each other; just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.—Colossians 3:13

Let Go Let God Concentrate

I focus my attention on God, and good manifests in my life.
If I am concerned about a situation, the best thing I can do is to not focus on the problem but to focus on the solution instead. God is always the answer and the solution to all problems. With my attention wholly on the Divine presence within, there is no room for fearful thinking. I lead a Spirit-driven life, able to discern whatever next steps I need to take and confident of the direction I am going. Grounded and centered on the peace that comes from within, I deepen my breathing. I feel my sacred connection. Supported, loved, and guided, I affirm: God is the answer. I open my mind and heart, and answers come to me and through me.
Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets; I have come not to abolish but to fulfill.—Matthew 5:17

Let Go Let God Pray for Others

I pray knowing that Spirit is fully present in every challenge.
Friends may involve me in a conflict or complaint. I share care and concern by listening, yet I am mindful not to aggravate the problem by adding to the negative energy. I know that the most caring thing I can do for another person is to affirm, through prayer, that the Christ Light abides not only in them but in all people involved. Omniscient, omnipresent Spirit is already active amidst my friend’s challenge, divinely guiding everyone involved, including myself. As I center myself in this Truth, I become peaceful about the entire situation. I gain clarity about what, if any, compassionate words or actions are mine to take in this circumstance to serve God’s greater good.
We, for our part, will devote ourselves to prayer and to serving the word.—Acts 6:4

Let Go Let God Find Purpose

Guided by Spirit, I live on purpose.
A child may apologize for some error by saying, “I didn’t do it on purpose.” There is a simple wisdom in that apology. When my thoughts stray from my spiritual purpose, I find myself creating frustration, pain, and strife. My purpose is to be Spirit expressing. I am here to use my God-given gifts to be a beneficial presence on earth. If I am caught up in the busyness of the day, my actions, words, and thoughts may not seem purpose-driven. When I notice this, I stop to take a breath right where I am. Centering my mind and heart, I move back to my purpose. I forgive myself and others. I make amends as needed. My desire for each day is to live on purpose, guided by Spirit.
But he said to them, “I must proclaim the good news of the kingdom of God to the other cities also; for I was sent for this purpose.”—Luke 4:43

Let Go, Let God

I let go and let my next steps be revealed by Spirit.
Are there times when I have held on to a limited vision of what I think a perfect solution should be? Perhaps I dwell in a pattern of worry or am afraid to loosen control. Letting go and letting God does not mean I will not be involved. Rather, it means I am open to divine ideas beyond my current perspective. It means I can ease my mind and let my next steps be revealed through my Higher Self. It is realizing there is an entire ocean of possibility beyond the small cove I can see through my mind’s window. I gently hold my heartfelt intention in mind and pray for this or some greater plan to be revealed. I stay faith-filled, knowing my prayers are answered in the right time and perfect way. God’s will for me is only good.
Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established.—Proverbs 16:3

Let Go Let God through Awareness

I am aware of God’s presence in everything I do and everyone I meet.
A first step in realizing our spiritual purpose is to become aware of the one Presence and one Power—God, the omnipotent—that defines the essence of everything. We see Divine Presence in great spiritual teachers, beautiful sunsets, or in the eyes of children. Before we were awakened to Spirit, there were experiences that spoke to us of a power far greater than the limits of this mortal realm. Our spiritual path is always moving us forward. Awake and aware, we find our lives filled with opportunities to accomplish our spiritual purpose. Choice by choice, we bring into awareness a dimension of consciousness that Jesus describes as the kingdom of heaven.
Be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to clothe yourselves with the new self, created according to the likeness of God.—Ephesians 4:23-24

Let Go Let God Give Thanks

Giving thanks in advance opens the way for me to receive.
If someone hands me a gift, I thank them before opening it. In the same way, I give thanks to Spirit in advance of blessings received. Gratitude aligns me with God’s good, increases my capacity to receive, and enables me to relax and know my needs are being met. I turn to God in prayer. Spirit works through me to do what is before me to do. Although I may be unaware of the outcome, I rest in the knowledge that my highest and best awaits. When I cannot see the path, my way will still reveal itself. I listen to and follow divine guidance, knowing I do not face any challenge alone. Spirit within me is my unfailing help, and I am lifted up. With gratitude and confidence, I meet this day with a light heart and a willing spirit.
O Lord my God, I will give thanks to you forever.—Psalm 30:12

Let Go Let God with Creative Energy

Divine energy finds creative expression through me.
The energy of God is the fuel that excites me into action and empowers me to live boldly and with purpose. This energy finds expression through me as zeal and enthusiasm. My inflow of divine blessings surges forth as an outflow of creativity. Energy keeps me mentally focused—able to accomplish and reach my goals. Anything I wish to achieve, from a small household chore to a lifelong dream, I can accomplish because the energy of God is working through me. My creativity is intrinsic to me, and I can draw upon it at any time. When I trust the energy within, I find strength to take action toward my goals. Divine energy finds creative expression through me.
I can do all things through him who strengthens me.—Philippians 4:13

Let Go Let God All Is In Divine Order

I am poised and harmonized by the spirit of goodwill.
How can I affirm divine order in the midst of less-than-ideal situations? There is a great peace and serenity in accepting all is well and everything is happening for the best, regardless of current circumstances. As I relax into the truth of divine order, I step into the flow of positive outcomes. I trust that my life is being guided by the wonderful, positive force for good that is God’s presence within me. Not only is everything in my universe in perfect balance with the grace of God, I am as well. I am poised and harmonized by the spirit of goodwill, the spirit of God. I am as I am meant to be, and I am guided into greater expressions of good. I let go, trust, and open up to my new spirit-guided direction.
Great peace have those who love your law; nothing can make them stumble.—Psalm 119:165

Let Go Let God When Making Choices

My choices are divinely inspired.
Perhaps the most limiting thought I can have is that I have no choice in what matters to me. I can negate this false belief by reminding myself that I am complete and whole in God—a creation of spirit, mind, and body. So when I need to make choices, I do so with divine direction. Whether my choices are routine or monumental matters, I turn within for divinely inspired guidance. I choose to follow the guidance of my Creator. Choices may change. Decisions may alter. But one thing that remains unchangeable is this: With God, all things are possible. Because I am One with God, I have access to infinite good.
According to the grace of God given to me, like a skilled master builder I laid a foundation.—1 Corinthians 3:10

Let Go Let God Envision World Peace

I hold a vision of harmony and goodwill for the world.
I know peace begins with me, but how do I find it? What can I change in myself so I can help add to the peace in the world? Awareness, of course, is the beginning. I take stock of my primary challenges and choose how to deal with them in a way that promotes personal peace. I let go of any sense of fear that may have stifled my journey forward or caused procrastination. I remind myself that I am not alone. God and I are one. In meditation, I imagine a calm personal environment and experience a serenity that allows me to think clearly. Each step I take to attain personal peace brings me closer to seeing peace in the world. Knowing this, I hold a vision of harmony and goodwill for the world.
Let us then pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding.—Romans 14:19

Let Go Let God in this Moment

My consciousness of God grows moment by moment.
In her book, Younger by the Day, Victoria Moran shares, “In this moment, there is plenty of time. In this moment, you are precisely as you should be. In this moment, there is infinite possibility.” Moments seem so brief; still, they are the building blocks of life. So I concentrate on what is at hand for me to do. If this is a time of change that I have planned, then it may seem like smooth going—until someone or something alters my plans. By being conscious of God’s loving guidance and direction as I plan, I am creating building blocks for life that are strong when under pressure. Moment by moment, day by day, my consciousness of God grows.
And to the centurion Jesus said, “Go; let it be done for you according to your faith.” And the servant was healed at that hour.—Matthew 8:13

Let Go Let God with Compassion

There is only one Presence and one Power in the universe and in my life: God.
Today’s affirmation is one of the five basic principles of Unity. Embracing this principle defines our purpose as spiritual beings in human form. If fear-based judgments cloud my expanding awareness of spiritual Truth, I affirm this principle then remind myself of Jesus’ words: “Judge not.” Compassion is the spiritual energy that dissolves the negative effects of judgment. When I reflect on the conflicts of the world, I learn from the consequences of judging others. I appreciate the rich diversity of this mortal realm, without insisting on either superiority or conformity. By making loving choices in my life, I honor and recognize my oneness with all beings.
Beloved, let us love one another, because love is from God; everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.—1 John 4:7

Saturday, August 5, 2017

Let Go Let God Relax

I relax as I experience God’s perfect peace.
Rest and renewal are a necessity, not a luxury. No matter how full my schedule, I make rest a priority. Each day, I carve out time for physical and spiritual renewal. It makes all the difference in whether I feel God’s peace throughout my day! I trust that life never gives me more than I can handle. Relaxing into this truth, I breathe deep and release any tension I might be holding in my body. Likewise, I relinquish any mental activities that are stressing my mind. Letting go of any concern about the past or the future, I rest fully in the present moment. Right here and now, I rest in God’s perfect peace. I am replenished and renewed in knowing that I share in God’s infinite bounty in each moment of my life.
Return, my soul, to your rest, for the Lord has dealt bountifully with you.—Psalm 116:7

Friday, August 4, 2017

Let Go Let God Accept Diversity

I honor all people as part of God’s love and beauty expressed.
Together with my human family, I create a world tapestry of interwoven diversity. Each person is a thread, wonderfully unique in appearance and actions. Individuality and freewill dictate the necessity for diverse expression. I honor all people as part of God’s love and beauty expressed. In times of spiritual contemplation, I remember that the one power and presence of God expresses through all things. My Source is the Source of all life, which expresses in myriad ways. As if woven on a great loom, I envision each unique life expression being woven together in love and harmony. I celebrate the resulting tapestry of diversity.
Lead a life worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love.—Ephesians 4:1-2

Thursday, August 3, 2017

Let Go Let God Meditate

I am peaceful, calm, and relaxed.
Meditation is an ancient practice by numerous cultures throughout the world. This simple practice provides a time of quiet reflection where I am one with God and open to inspiration. As I turn my attention inward to the sacred space of the Silence, I tune out my surroundings and focus on my breathing. With each unhurried breath in and out, my heart rate steadies, my oxygen level rises. I am filled with peace to carry me throughout the day. As I make meditation a habitual part of my daily routine, I look forward to that time. I know that these moments will benefit me physically, mentally, and spiritually. I will emerge from them feeling refreshed and renewed, ready to face the day.
I commune with my heart in the night; I meditate and search my spirit.—Psalm 77:6

Let Go Let God Provide Healing

The life of God flows through me as renewing energy.
The breath of God gives me life, making me a living, breathing expression of Spirit. Life is energy, and should I experience a health challenge, I find peace in knowing that I am created in wholeness. Healing is a process while wholeness is my true nature of health and well-being. Each day, I speak to my body, affirming: The life of God flows through me as renewing energy. My body responds with vibrance and strength. My mind stays calm and relaxed. From head to toe, I am aglow with radiant health. I am a child of the Divine, and as such I can never be away from the flow of healing energy. I give thanks for my heartbeat, for my breath, and for every cell in my body.
Then the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and the man became a living being.—Genesis 2:7

Let Go Let God in the Silence

I enrich my awareness of God in the Silence.
The tiny hummingbird works quietly but with purpose, darting from flower to flower, gathering nectar for its own nourishment, and pollinating flowers as it goes. When the atmosphere is still and the hummingbird close, the gentle hum from its fast-beating wings can be heard. I experience a gentleness and purpose when I take time to be aware of the Creator of all life. I embrace the Silence and concentrate on the still, small voice within me. Nearer than my breath, Spirit nourishes me. I receive as I linger in quiet reflection of who I am: a creation of the Creator. Wherever I am at the moment of embracing the presence of God, I am in a holy space.
Then the Lord said to him, “Take off the sandals from your feet, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.”—Acts 7:33
