The world can be a cruel place . . .
Circumstances and events can spin out of our control and it seems that life is an endless cycle of pain and suffering. We feel like we are powerless to stop what is happening to us. Then redemption occurs and reminds us that we are not in this world alone. We discover that we have an advocate who takes over and pulls us along despite our weakness. That advocate can take many forms… a friend, a spouse or even God himself.
As a child, I used to watch the movie The Ten Commandments every year at Easter time. Sure, the acting was over the top and it probably took liberties with historical accuracy, but it also conveyed a powerful message . . . You are not alone in this world and there is an Advocate for you.

We need the hope found in the story of Exodus . . .
