the land of milk and honey
you ask us to be moses. to go and claim the land of milk and honey to people in misery. like these kids that are broken. they are in misery, although most don't even know it. we are called to lead them out of their life. to lead them to the land of milk and honey. and we react just as moses did. 'they won't believe me (exodus 3:13)'. these kids know your name. they hear it often. but to them it's a class in school. a life they are shoved into. something they are made to believe. that you are a holy deity, but there is a part missing. that you want life WITH them. they don't know about the land of milk and honey. allow me to bring the true I AM to them. your love. your desire to have life with them. to see you as father. friend. lover of their broken souls. your desire to lead them out of their life of misery and into the land of milk and honey. they need to see that burning bush. that miracle. i guess i need to see it too. to cast out doubt, fear and disbelief. instead i make my life about ridiculous things. what and who i should be. i so often don't look for the land of milk and honey out in the distance. i often set out for somewhere far less fruitful. far less than what you want for me. let me persue the land of milk and honey you have waiting for me.
