Last year during the Prayer Pledge, many BIS writers shared personal stories of their own prayer life. Colleen Mitchell wrote a moving reflection about her relationship with Franciscan spirituality.
One section spoke to me today in particular:
“And I feel like I have been in a dark room and suddenly stepped into the sun. It feels good and warm, but it hurts my eyes, and I am squinting in the glare.
And then I am bowing my head and accepting forgiveness for the things I said that were not really the thing at all and trying to breathe through to the other side of the fact that He is right, and He is waiting, and I won’t get off of this one easily.”
Revisit Colleen’s post today and reflect on words that may speak to you, as well.
Comment below with your thoughts:
Where can you seek humility in your life? Are you putting your guard up in your prayer? How can you seek Him honestly?
or, simply answer:
Did you pray today?
