Put yourself in a comfortable position. Take several deep breaths.
Repeat to yourself: Do not be afraid.
Each time you exhale let go of those things about which you are worried or afraid.
Offer these worries to God, knowing that God's love is infinite.
Allow yourself to accept God's love and grace in return.
It is certain that the love of God does not consist in experiencing sweetness or tenderness of heart but in truly serving God in justice, strength and humility.
St. Teresa of Avila
Loving God consists not in experiencing good feelings we have when praying, but rather serving God “in justice, strength and humility,” following the way of Jesus. Pray today for the gifts you need to serve God faithfully.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
