PAUSE & Read
For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. – Hebrews 4:15
PAUSE & Reflect
Like Jesus did in the desert, we too need to face our temptations, name them, and share them with the One who alone can help us to overcome them.
PAUSE & Practice
Take ten minutes today to create your own “desert experience” – be alone with God and bring forward those temptations with which you are presently struggling. Receive the grace that God offers as you face your temptations.
