Put yourself in a comfortable position that will allow you to concentrate and feel calm. Breathe in deeply, hold it, exhale completely. Repeat three times. Relax. Visualize yourself in God's presence.
Using Psalm 46:10, say slowly:
Be still and know that I am God
Be still and know that I am
Be still and know
Repeat a few times.
Relax and breathe in deeply, hold it and exhale completely.
You are trying your best just to be with God.
Ah, I know well, joy is not in the things that surround us; it dwells in the innermost soul.
St. Therese of Lisieux
The saints know that true joy lies deep within our hearts and cannot be disturbed by the difficulties of everyday life; the joy of knowing they are God’s children. As you pray today, be grateful for that peace and contentment in God, the source of our joy
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
