Look around you. Take the time to consider exactly where you are at this moment. Breathe deeply and meditate on the fact that God knows you, right now, wherever you are. God is with you at this moment and sees you and knows the desires of your heart.
Take a deep breath and allow God's desires to fill your heart.
Exhale, and let go of your worries and those things to which you have been clinging and which may have gotten in the way of your relationship with God today. Take two more deep breaths.
“There are twelve stars for achieving perfection: love of God, love of neighbor, obedience, chastity, poverty, attendance at choir, penance, humility, mortification, prayer, silence, peace.”
John of the Cross (SLL156)
Consider the twelve stars: where do you need to grow in your life with God? Pray for the courage to be open to making some changes in your life.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
