And they complained to Moses, “Were there no burial places in Egypt that you had to bring us out here to die in the desert? Why did you do this to us? Why did you bring us out of Egypt? Did we not tell you this in Egypt, when we said, ‘Leave us alone. Let us serve the Egyptians’? Far better for us to be the slaves of the Egyptians than to die in the desert.” – Ex 14:11-12

we are faint of heart
at the first sign of trouble
we cower and complain
we fear not death
for all shall die
what we fear is the unknown
the anxiety that it brings
the suffering:
imagined and real
that may or may not come
the uncertainty of it all
what we want is assurances
and signs of faith
since we have none

all we really need
is to remember your promise
made long before
the foundation of the world
when we were chosen
and called to be:
you have plans not for our harm
but our prosperity
and a future full of hope

all we have to do
is calm our faint heart
and stay resolute
in trusting and following you
