When reflecting on the 40 days,
The time referred to as LENT,
We realize it is not about us,
But Jesus and the time that He spent….
Quietly speaking and walking with God,
While the devil tried to tempt,
But Jesus said “Be gone…go away,”
And this He truly meant.
The devil tempted Him saying, “turn the stones into bread.”
Jesus gave Him a swift, strong reply,
“Man does not live by bread alone,”
It’s on God whom we need to rely.
The devil took Him to the mountain-top high
Said “If you’re God’s Son, throw yourself down.”
Jesus stated “Don’t put your God to the test,”
And said He didn’t want the devil around.
When tempted, Jesus pushed the devil away,
He was an example of what we’re to do.
We tell the devil…get “LOST” from our lives,
And walk daily with GOD to get through.
And during this LENT, it’s a time of reflection,
To INVENTORY our lives and to PRAY,
Follow the example that Jesus Christ set,
Spend TIME with God…being QUIET…. each day.
