From Henri Nouwen, “The Inner Voice of Love: A Journey Through Anguish to Freedom”

Simply start by admitting that you cannot cure yourself. You have to say yes fully to your powerlessness in order to let God heal you. But it is not really a question of first and then. Your willingness to experience your powerlessness already includes the beginning of surrender to God’s action in you.
