Put yourself in a comfortable position. Take several deep breaths.
Repeat to yourself: Do not be afraid.
Each time you exhale let go of those things about which you are worried or afraid.
Offer these worries to God, knowing that God's love is infinite.
Allow yourself to accept God's love and grace in return.
“More merciful to me than He was to His disciples, Jesus took the net Himself, cast it, and drew it in filled with fish.”
Therese of Lisieux (SS99)
Frequently, we work hard to do good and come up empty because we try to do it alone.
Ask God for a growing awareness of your total dependence on God to accomplish even the smallest good deed.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
