Thursday, February 21 – Facing Temptation

Can you think of a “minor temptation” – something that you face regularly or occasionally that presents a challenge to you?  Try imagining that you are confronted with that temptation, but before you make a decision about how to act or begin to feel, imagine that you reach for the mental photograph or image of a time when you were able to trust in the midst of difficulty.

Notice how that feels and what that’s like.  See if you can find – within yourself or from One who holds you – a strength, a sense of trust, a sense of security.  Claim that the next time you feel faced with temptation.
