Here is the quote from my Lent book (which you've probably read)
It's striking to me and I think worth further reflection on your Lenten journey.

Humble yourself profoundly before God, acknowledging your nothingness and misery. Alas, what am I when left to myself? No better, Lord, than the parched ground, whose cracks and crevices on every side testify to its need of the gracious rain of Heaven, while, nevertheless, the world’s blasts wither in more and more dust.
— An Introduction to the Devout Life by Saint Francis de Sales
