I’m loving this overview of Bible in 25 days.   We’re now to the second book of the Hebrew Scriptures–Exodus.  The Israelites are in a mess, free from slavery but stuck with their backs against a wall of water with the Egyptian army closing in.  It looks like a horrible mess because it is a horrible mess.

If you know what happens next, you lose some of the urgency of the situation.  It is completely hopeless from a human perspective.

Have you had times in life like that?  Urgent, desperate, and perhaps a matter of life or death?  If so, this reading and the question that follows is for you:  “As you look for God today, reflect on when in your life you have been able to trust in God wholly when things fell apart.”

The picture above gives the final result of the story.  What is your story?  Share your comments below.
