“Simon, Simon, behold, Satan demanded to have you, that he might sift you like wheat, but I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.” Â (Luke 22:31-32, ESV)
There are days when I feel as if I’m being sifted. Â No matter how much I personally pray, read the Bible, or put myself into the right place, I feel temptation and the darkness of my flesh all around me.
It’s on days like this that I have to rally, stand in faith, and do all I can to also strengthen others.
Life has been a bit hectic for me and I’ve felt the sifting these past few days. Â Today’s interlude is my interpretation of that inner conflict. Â (I might add that the droning, repeating pattern is also fantastic for lulling you into a trance-like sleep, so enjoy the rest!)
