Deep down the soul has understood that it must let itself be carried, that it must abandon itself to its Saviour, that alone it can do nothing, that God can do everything.
And if it remains still and motionless, as though bound in the faithfulness of God, it will quickly realize that things have changed, and that its progress, though still painful, is in the right direction.
It is the direction of love! This realization will come like light after darkness, the midday sun after the dawn.
What matters is to let God get on with it.
