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.
Yet there is a difference in his dwelling in them. In some souls he dwells alone, and in others he does not dwell alone. Abiding in some he is pleased; and in others he is displeased.
St. John of the Cross
John invites us to always reverence God’s gift of life within us and not offer God a divided heart. As you pray today, thank God for dwelling within you.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
