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.
By love and not by fear does the soul avoid committing the least voluntary fault.
St. Therese of Lisieux
Therese invites us to simply love God! Live your life compelled by that love, knowing that fear does not have a lasting impact as a motivation. As you pray today, ask to be released from any fears that keep you from loving God wholeheartedly.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
