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.
In order to contemplate Your glory, we must pass through fire. I choose for my purgatory Your burning love, O Heart of my God.
St. Therese of Lisieux
No suffering was too much for Therese as long as she remained in the “Heart of God,” where she experienced God’s “burning love.” In your prayer today, ask God to keep you close to his heart as you “pass through fire.”
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
