Forget yourself. Think only of Him. In doing so, your heart will remain free and at peace.

It is essential to continually submit your will to God’s will and renounce every private inclination as soon as it arises–no matter how good it appears. You must want only what God has willed from all eternity. Forget the past. Devote the present to God. Be satisfied with the present moment which brings God’s eternal order to you. Attribute nothing that happens to you as coming from man, but regard everything, except sin, as coming from God.

-from Experiencing God Through Prayer p.28
