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.
Our faith is so dead that we desire what we see more than what faith tells us.
St. Teresa of Avila
Bemoaning the lack of faith of those called to follow Jesus, Teresa speaks of a faith that is “dead” because it desires only what is seen. As you pray today, ask to believe in God who fulfills all that you desire and let go of all that is seen and demonstrable.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
