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.
A spirit in distress and solicitude for God's love is a sacrifice most pleasing to God.
St. John of the Cross
The person who is singly focused on God’s love and sees all suffering in light of that love is “most pleasing to God.” Pray today to keep your eyes on one goal alone – “solicitude for God’s love,” even in the face of distress and difficulties.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
