Breathe deeply and simply rest.
For a moment, do not think about what you must do later today.
Simply allow yourself to gather strength from God's love, to be replenished by God's mercy, invigorated by God's very presence.
Give thanks to God for this energizing love.
...the Lord gives when He desires, as He desires, and to whom He desires.
St. Teresa of Avila
Teresa is clear that she (and we) are not in control of God’s relationship to us. Intimacy with God requires a ‘letting go’ of even the most pious sentiments. Pray
today to desire God alone and leave the timing and the manner of inviting us – to God!
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
