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.
To be just means not only to deal severely with the guilty; it means to recognize good intentions and to repay virtues. I hope as much from the justice of the good God as I hope from His mercy.
St. Therese of Lisieux
Therese experienced God’s justice as merciful and God’s mercy as just. Pray today for that same balance of mercy and justice toward all whom you serve.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
