BREAD

I have so many questions for you.   

But maybe enough time for just this one today: 

 

How did it feel when Lucifer was there  

with you in the desert 

when you heard him say: 

 

“If you’re the son of God then... 

 

…do something with your life. 

…show us a sign. 

…feed yourself. 

…what’s wrong with having a wife?! 

…make some sense of all this time you’ve wasted. 

... how about some food for those hungry faces. 

... you? The answer? Don’t be so naive. 

... if you don’t ask, how will you then receive? 

... yes, but you just ask to satisfy your own desires. 

... prove to me that God is not a liar. 

... you really think they’ll listen? 

... you don’t see you’re out of time? 

... why haven’t you done the math? 

... you’re already running behind. 

... why can’t you make it work? 

... why can’t you stop the pain? 

... set things as they should be! 

... if God loves you, He’ll explain. 

... get a grip, find your focus, find the quiet. 

... stop these voices in your head 

... stop here just a minute... 

... turn these stones 

 

... into bread.” 

 

Could you ever calm the voices?

Could you make them go away? 

Cascading and colliding...in your head 

Are they what led 

you to say... 

 

“Deliver us from evil?” 

 

Jesus ... deliver me today.
