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.
Oh, how happy is this soul that ever experiences God resting and reposing within it!
St. John of the Cross
With deep gratitude, the detached soul expresses sheer joy acknowledging the presence of God “resting and reposing within it.” In your prayer today, let go of all other attachments and give yourself totally to your soul’s only Desire, praising and thanking God for this great gift.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
