We often make resolutions. We are not always successful at keeping them.
But in some rare cases you realize it is not you making them. It is Another who is calling you sweetly, but decisively, from within. It then seems you cannot but keep those resolutions. We have to thank God for these divine moments in which he calls us to Another life that lives inside of us, where every note is in harmony, every darkness is enlightened, every distortion is straightened, every emptiness is filled with him. And this can happen at any moment of the day.
We feel there are two of us: he in me and I in him. Yet we are one: I, water From this source, a flower from this divine seed, the witness of his reality that fills my being. This indeed is living.
God alone knows how to shape himself in us. We know only how to ruin it.

from Essential Writings (La dottrina spirituale, Mondadori 2001)
