"Be proud of your pain, for you are stronger than those with none."
And then suddenly, it hits you: I’m such a failure.
"Teach me how to seek you, and show yourself to me when I seek. For I cannot find you unless you show yourself to me. Let me seek you in desiring you; let me desire you in seeking you. Let me find you in loving you; let me love you in finding you."
"Come now, insignificant man, leave behind for a time your preoccupations; seclude yourself for a while from your disquieting
thoughts. Turn aside now from heavy cares, and set aside your
wearisome tasks. Make time for God, and rest a while in Him."
