I've been walking in the dark. Honing my night vision, spiritually. Psalm 51 has been a great comfort: Open my lips, Lord, and my mouth will declare Your praise. My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit. A broken and contrite heart You will not despise. I am reminded of a time such as this when repentance healed my broken heart, so broken it felt dead and silent inside me. I "turn my mind", words so similar to the definition of "repentance", the Hebrew word שׁוּבָה transliterated "shubah", meaning a return or a turning away from.
