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.
As if [God] were to to put an instrument in her hands and show her how it works by operating it jointly with her, he shows [the soul] how to love and gives her the ability to do so.
St. John of the Cross
Those who love God are guided by God’s gentle hand, learning how to love with the same love that they have received. Pray today to be open to God’s guiding hand.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
