I watched them from my car window, a mother and daughter, carrying their wares to the market. The daughter was crying as she followed, making as if she would turn back. The mother would yell at her to go back home. Reluctantly, but with a sense of, where – else-can – I – go, the little girl would follow on.
As God’s beloved children, we often find ourselves at a point in life where our journey with God brings us pains and tears. And like that little girl, or the children of Israel in the wilderness, we are tempted to turn back and return to “Egypt”.
It is in such moments that a reflecting saint comes to the sober realisation of God’s amazing love and grace; for who else loves and cares for us like our God? And no where else can one find such acceptance and security?
“You lead me in the path of life; I experience absolute joy in your presence; you always give me sheer delight” – Psalm 16:11, NET.
