Breathe deeply and simply rest.
For a moment, do not think about what you must do later today.
Simply allow yourself to gather strength from God's love, to be replenished by God's mercy, invigorated by God's very presence.
Give thanks to God for this energizing love.
It must be understood that one has to strive to go forward in the service of our Lord and in self-knowledge.
St. Teresa of Avila
Teresa invites us to be intentional and active, rather than undisciplined and passive, in nurturing our relationship with God. Ask today for the grace to grow in your commitment to God.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
