Put yourself in a comfortable position that will allow you to concentrate and feel calm. Breathe in deeply, hold it, exhale completely. Repeat three times. Relax. Visualize yourself in God's presence.
Using Psalm 46:10, say slowly:
Be still and know that I am God
Be still and know that I am
Be still and know
Repeat a few times.
Relax and breathe in deeply, hold it and exhale completely.
You are trying your best just to be with God.
Indeed the soul does no more in this union than does the wax when another impresses a seal on it. The wax doesn't impress the seal on itself…it is only disposed -- I mean, by being soft…it doesn't soften itself but remains still and gives its consent.
St. Teresa of Avila
As potter’s clay fashioned by God, pray today for the grace to be “disposed” to God’s work in you.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
