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.
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.
