Be still and allow yourself to be in the presence of God, who is always available to help us. Remember: ''For God all things are possible.'' Repeat three times. Exhale, letting go of all doubt you feel. Breathe in and recall that God will never leave your side.
In realizing that I could do nothing of myself, my task [as mistress of novices] became simplified. I strove to unite myself more and more to God, knowing that the rest will be added to me.
St. Therese of Lisieux
Therese recognized that her real strength came from recognizing her own powerlessness and her need for God. With Therese and Paul, pray today to recognize that in your weakness is your strength.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
