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.
In the evening of life, we will be judged on love alone.
St. John of the Cross
The season of Advent provides us with the opportunity to meditate on our core beliefs and the meaning of Christ’s coming, captured so well in this quote from John. Pray today for the grace to love more deeply; and that love will be the only motivation for all that you do.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
