Journey Forward (Beshalach)

“…Why do you cry out to Me…Let them journey forward!” (Exodus 14:15)

Sandwiched between the sea and the Egyptian army, the Jews froze. Their mission seemed doomed. God answered conclusively: “Keep Going”! There are times when our children, in pursuit of a lofty goal, are going to hit a wall and feel stuck.  Now is when they need us most. Not to solve the problem, but to give them the confidence and support they need to keep going. The conviction needed to pursue something you believe in deeply, despite (seemingly) insurmountable obstacles, comes from us.

They trust us, and if we believe in them, they will believe in themselves and journey forward.
