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.
It is in that soul in which less of its own appetites and pleasures dwell that he dwells more alone, more pleased, and more as though in his own house, ruling and governing it.
St. John of the Cross
As the soul detaches itself from “its own appetites and pleasures,” there is more and more room for God. Pray today, that God will make you a pleasing dwelling place.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
