“We were better off as slaves in Egypt!” (Really?!)

A few weeks ago I had blogged about Waiting on God. I must begin by saying that things worked our great. Well, great as in, “what I was hoping for happened”! Thank God! Since then, I have found out that what I thought was a great deal, was great compared to what I had before, but not as great when I factor in new information and what it could be. Fact is, it is not bad at all, but my thoughts and wishes and comparisons get me into a not-so-happy state.

About 10 days ago, I told myself to ignore all the new information that has come in, and look at the present compared to where I was, and work/move towards where I want to be in the next couple of months or years. AND make sure that I enjoy the process of moving towards my new goals.

My thoughts and feelings of dissatisfaction with a surely much improved situation reminded me AGAIN of the Jews during Exodus. At some point, they said that being slaves in Egypt was much better than being free and walking towards home. Of course, I will be first to admit that my situation is not as “dire” as what they experienced in order to be ungrateful for their new found freedom/opportunity. But ungratefulness is ungratefulness regardless of its cause. My 2 cents.
