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.
Softened and humbled by aridities and hardships and by other temptations and trials in which God exercises the soul in the course of this night, individuals become meek toward God and themselves and also toward their neighbor.
St. John of the Cross
Acceptance of “this night” bears fruit in a meek and humbled heart. Pray today to trust God’s guidance when you walk in the obscurity of “this night.”
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
