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.
It remains to be said, then, that even though this happy night darkens the spirit, it does so only to impart light concerning all things.
St. John of the Cross
For John, true happiness comes in the dark night of the spirit; darkness frees us to see the light of God’s transformation in our lives. Pray today that the light of Christ will shine in your darkness.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
