Breathe deeply and simply rest.
For a moment, do not think about what you must do later today.
Simply allow yourself to gather strength from God's love, to be replenished by God's mercy, invigorated by God's very presence.
Give thanks to God for this energizing love.
Abide in peace, banish cares, take no account of all that happens, and you will serve God according to his good pleasure and rest in him.
St. John of the Cross
Reminiscent of psalm 62, “Only in God is my soul at rest”, John invites us to let go of all our concerns - giving ourselves over to service of God. Simply rest in God, as your pray today.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
