An Undefended Heart

JustFaith Ministries has a blog called Still In the Storm (SIS). It includes reflections, resources and reminders for engaging spirituality in times like these.  The blog was developed especially for anyone who has experienced JustFaith.  SIS comes in weekly installments.

Here is an excerpt from this week's post: 

Still Waiting, Still Watching, Still Turning

If you pray, pray for a crack
that can breach your self-protections,
dispelling all partialities and enchantments.
For there can be no "guarded" prayer.
Praying begs surrender,
and requires an undefended heart.
And then light can pour through,
till the moment bursts,
bathing you in bright sensations,
of songbird chants,
wet breezes on the skin,
and the freshness of the day.
