09 JOURNEYING through the Desert - Christopher Mendonca

When the Israelites left Egypt, delivered from slavery
on that first Passover Night,
the excitement and joy of their newfound freedom
descended on them like a cloud.
Even as they waded through the Sea of Reeds
unscathed, and made their way through the desert,
celebrating the wonders the LORD had done for them,
they took no notice of it, until the cloud of complacency was lifted
and the desert began to reveal its authenticity.
The rumblings of hunger soon gave way to grumblings
as they suddenly began to think that they were better off in Egypt.
It seemed now that their 'freedom' was an illusion,
The LORD had flattered only to deceive, so they thought.
