Take several deep breaths. Empty your thoughts.
Let go of all that has held you back today.
Exhale all those things that make your heart heavy.
Envision yourself moving forward, lighter, more free, toward the Lord, who helps to carry all burdens.
Jesus made me understand that only in obedience was I pleasing to Him.
St. Therese of Lisieux
The biblical meaning of “obedience” implies a close relationship to God, rather than a rule-based understanding. The believer is called to listen and respond to God’s call to live a holy life – what Therese is really describing. As you pray today, listen to God’s voice in the context of your loving relationship with God.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
