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.
The tomorrow of this life will be eternity. Then Jesus will repay you a hundredfold for the joys you have sacrified to Him.
St. Therese of Lisieux
The thought of heaven as the fulfillment of her deep desire for God, motivated Therese most of her life. As you pray today, ask that “eternity.” the place where you will dwell with God forever, becomes your sole preoccupation.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
