Look around you. Take the time to consider exactly where you are at this moment. Breathe deeply and meditate on the fact that God knows you, right now, wherever you are. God is with you at this moment and sees you and knows the desires of your heart.
Take a deep breath and allow God's desires to fill your heart.
Exhale, and let go of your worries and those things to which you have been clinging and which may have gotten in the way of your relationship with God today. Take two more deep breaths.
“Do you want to be well?...Rise, take up you mat, and walk.”
John 5: 6, 8
Jesus required a “yes” because being healed would change the man’s whole life. “Travelers cannot reach new territory if they do not take new and unknown roads and abandon the familiar ones.”(John of the Cross) What attitudes or habits do you want to “abandon” to “reach new territory” and experience new life?
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
