What is Your Desert

Jesus was in the desert for 40 days, facing temptation.  What is my desert?  When have I been tempted, and had to fight to retain my integrity, my faith?  When we journey through our deserts, we face our enemy one on one.  Our true self is exposed.  Our desires are exploited.  Yet, we have the power of Jesus Christ and His Word as a sword and shield.  He is always there beside us, arming us against the temptations of the desert.

Here is a song entitled Desert Voice by composer Eric Becker. Imagine yourself in this desert, alone, thirsty, exhausted, afraid.  Embrace the love, protection and nourishment that God provides you.
