“The Spirit drove Jesus out into the desert…”

MK 1:12

“Go!”

This joyous fullness drives me on. Abba’s luminocity, the descended Ruach-as-dove: now, they’re a driving whirlwind, an inferno.

“Go!”

I stagger. Stumble. Drop to one knee. Rise up. Continue.

To the desert. Where my forty-day fast awaits.

“Go!”

Solitude

gold tested in

fire
