By praying "Not my will, God, but Yours," you're aligning yourself with the strength and power of Spirit Divine. You're letting go, and in doing so you've opened the way for something new to replace the negative thinking. And isn't it comforting to know that whatever the "something new" may be, it's directed by God's love and wisdom?
As you mentally agree with yourself to release your ego from the situation, limitations disappear, and the golden glow of God's light illumines your way. Peace fills your mind, body, and soul.
In her book God Will See You Through, popular Unity writer Mary Kupferle writes, "Take time to be quiet, to be still and contemplate the Truth that God's love is right there with you, that God's light is now shining throughout your mind to reveal what you need to see and know. Listen within and let God's wisdom gently turn your thoughts over and over until the questions become answers, the doubts become newborn faith. You will see that everything has been and is working for your good."
As you let go and let God, always remember that God's presence within is your constant source of hope and love. The following affirmations from Daily Word will help you refocus during difficult times. Repeat them silently or aloud and feel the peace of God embracing you:
- God is the source of limitless good that is continually blessing me.
- I am flexible as I allow God's plan to emerge and evolve.
- I let go and let my faith in God carry me through.
- With a silent, heartfelt prayer, I let go and let God heal my relationships.
- I let go and let God, knowing that the source of all good is in charge.
