Soul Pressure

Casey Colombo

I feel it
surrounding my soul
taunting me
prodding me
to give in to temptation
to fall to the enemy
to sin.

If you are tired from carrying heavy burdens, come to me and I will give you rest.
Matthew 11:28 (CEV)

I feel it
pushing from all sides
driving me
forcing me
to go deeper within
to retreat from the world
to seek my God,
my only escape.

I feel it.


REFLECT: How do you deal with the pressure to give in to temptation? Where do you seek and find God?
