The discomfort only means that you, a mere mortal, now step down the dark, still inner hallway to the unfathomable, overwhelming Reality of Love. Yes, this situation is out of control; in your discomfort, you merely experience the fact that life is by nature out of your control.

Keep coming back to waiting for God in the silent night of your heart. In doing so, you open your heart to the reality that God is not only present but in control.
