Sometimes we are faced with challenges that seem beyond our capabilities. We may try our best to work them out, but it’s easy to let worry get the best of us. When we worry, we may inadvertently hold on to the problem and block a solution.
To free myself from any situation, I open to a new experience—I release the problem to God. As I turn it over to the Power that always works for my highest good, I experience freedom and clarity.
I have faith in the Divine—I know that with God nothing is impossible. I release what I cannot change, ask what is mine to do, and pray for the courage to act as I am guided. In letting go and letting God, I find my way to right answers.
If we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.—Romans 8:25
Every seed I plant, whether physical or spiritual, has within it the potential for a healthy yield. When the soil is properly prepared and the seedling carefully nourished, the plant flourishes. So it is with my life. A simple yet profound Native American song expresses this idea:
As my eyes search the prairie
I feel the summer in the spring.
I consider my present situation and release any worries. What may seem like an empty field is actually abundant potential, which will soon be ready for harvest. I see beyond appearances and have faith in the forces of Life. I plant affirmations and intentions, and nurture them with faith and action. As I do, a prosperous crop of good comes to fruition.
You visit the earth and water it, you greatly enrich it.—Psalm 65:9
MY COMMITMENTS ARE SPARKED BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD WITHIN ME.
Commitments link me, both mind and heart, to people, aspirations, and goals.
When I give myself wholeheartedly to a relationship, my work, or some plan, I do well. However, when my first commitment is to being God-centered, I bring an even greater measure of love, understanding, and imagination to any commitment.
If I am determined to do my best in a new or long-standing relationship, I make a commitment to be God-centered—mind and heart. I bring love and compassion to every interaction with others.
If I am beginning a new job or class, I make a commitment to be God-centered—mind and heart—in all that is my responsibility to do. My every action and response is filled with understanding and imagination.
Never lag in zeal, be aglow with the Spirit, serve the Lord.—Romans 12:11
Charles Fillmore, cofounder of Unity, defined freedom as “having a sense of complete well-being.” How sweet life is when I experience this level of freedom!
Through spiritual practice, I seek to know and realize this consciousness of freedom and peace. In my daily meditation, I release all concerns and cares and relax in the Silence and oneness of Spirit. I am free and fulfilled. All is well.
Throughout the day, I recall the feeling of freedom by pausing, taking a deep breath, and revisiting the Silence. This practice helps me open to the freedom of Spirit, to guidance, and to the flow of divine ideas. I release any anxiety and align my thoughts with positive, unlimited possibilities. I am free.
I want you to be free from anxieties.–1 Corinthians 7:32
We all want to be appreciated and loved by others, but a need for approval can be a stumbling block. On my spiritual path, I learn that my priority is to be true to myself. I am an expression of God—in this form, body, and mind. I am all I need to be. By being true to myself, I may or may not garner the admiration or approval of others, but ultimately I will gain much more.
I pray to fully love myself as I am, to accept the love of God, to appreciate my gifts and the unique desires of my heart. I am here to live the life I have been given. As I learn to love myself more, my need for admiration and outside approval diminishes. I am whole and complete, just as I am.
Am I now seeking human approval, or God’s approval? … If I were still pleasing people, I would not be a servant of Christ.—Galatians 1:10
I OPEN TO DIVINE MIND, AND I LIVE A FULFILLING LIFE.
Divine Mind is the field of infinite potential. It is All-Good, everywhere present. It is the Source of all that is. Divine Mind is God, and God lives in me. Through the power of Divine Mind, I find the fulfillment of every need—health in mind and body, prosperity to live with ease and comfort, the love of family and friends, peace in my relationships with others, and harmony in my community.
Today I open my heart and mind to greater understanding. All I need to know is that there is a place within my soul where I can consciously meet God as Divine Mind and receive a flood of new life, love, and power. God is the fulfillment of every need. As I grow in understanding, I am fulfilled.
May he grant your heart’s desire, and fulfill all your plans.—Psalm 20:4
