Going Through It

“And the Lord said to Moses, “Why do you cry to Me?  Tell the children of Israel to go forward.”  Exodus 14:15

I know what it’s like to be around someone having a meltdown.  But 600,000 men plus their families having meltdowns?  Yikes!

Yet that is what Moses faced as the people found themselves sandwiched between Pharaoh and the Red Sea.  God’s response to Moses may have seemed a little harsh, but in reality He was simply reminding Moses, “Of course I’m going to save you.  Of course, I’m going to make a way.”

Thank You, Jesus, for reminding me that when things get bad / ugly / scary there is only one thing to do . . . move forward  through it with You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

The Only Thing To Do

In the end
what am I to do
whenever I hit
a road block or two
but go over, under
around or through
always forward
and on with You.

What do you need to go forward through with Jesus?


  1. well done!

  2. Wow Deb, Amazing and timely post. The way God responded to Moses was bold and forward, and in my opinion, meant to inspire him to have confidence in God and His promises. So often we find ourselves wanting to cry “why me” when we should just trust in His to lead us through. God Bless

  3. Cool poem and thought.

  4. 600,000 meltdowns. oh that is a terrible thought!

  5. God bless you, Jingle! 🙂

  6. I think I spend too much time crying to Him instead of trusting and moving forward! 🙂 God bless you too, Jim!

  7. I’m coming to the same part of scripture that you posted on . . .the fighting and praying! Thanks for paving the way! 🙂 and your book is amazing!

  8. I agree! I don’t even handle one meltdown very well at times! ha!

  9. Deb,
    That was a wonderful way of putting God’s word in prose. Thank you for continuing to direct us to worship God in a new and meaningful way. When I see how God has dealt with challenges in my life, I’ve noticed that He has always taken me in ways I could never imagine. I’m certain the 2.5 million Israelites had no clue how God would save them but save them He did and in a way far beyond their expecations.

  10. You are so right, Vineet! 🙂 He seems to always do what we don’t expect . . .like send His Son to save us. God bless you and yours!

  11. this is great. i had to pause for the question. i will just do what He wants me to do. no hatred. if i fail in a moment He’ll forgive me if i ask Him to, right? 🙂

  12. You are so right! 🙂 He is awesome to forgive and save us, when we call on Him! I have to call on Him a lot! Joy to you, sweet one!
