Out the Frying Pan...

Into the Fire.

i wonder how moses felt...i wonder how the people tried to make him feel.

things were bad, they were slaves, weren't they? could it possibly get any worse?

uhm...yeah. it got worse. after moses went and did what God told him to do, pharoah made life harder for the israelites. moses again does what God tells him to do and, again, pharoah makes life harder for the israelites...

now wait a minute, God...aren't things supposed to be getting better?

i hate to say it, but that's the way it is sometimes. it doen'st mean God has stopped loving us or that he has forgotten us...or that He's having fun with us. He allows us to experience hardship for a few reasons:

1. That we would long for heaven
2. That we would long for His comfort
3. That we would be bound together as a people and share each other's burdens
