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.
Through perseverance in its spiritual exercises without consolation or satisfaction, the soul practices the love of God.
St. John of the Cross
Practicing the love of God is to live as Jesus did – seeking only what God wills and inviting all people to the love of God and neighbor. Pray today that you will remain faithful to practicing this love of God, even when you experience no “consolation or satisfaction.”
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
