St. John's words:
From Degrees of Perfection:
15. Remember always that everything that happens to you, whether prosperous or adverse, comes from God, so that you become neither puffed up in prosperity nor discouraged in adversity.
· Reminiscent of Job.
· Blessed be the name of God, no matter what happens to us.
· This kind of trust is the very definition of humility, for me.
“Trust in God who does not fail those who seek him with a simple and righteous heart.”
The Dark Night, Book One, Chapter 10
