With Egypt behind them, Miriam and the other Hebrews are finally heading to the land of promise. A land flowing with milk and honey.
When grumbles and complaints break out like a plague among the people, Miriam is no exception. Her brother, Aaron, leads the priests while their youngest brother, Moses, leads the people. What’s Miriam to do? God speaks in her dreams and gives her songs of praise and prophecy, but she longs for more.
Discontented with Moses’ leadership, the people choose a new leader to head back to the familiar land of Egypt. God doesn’t want them to return to slavery, but being the chivalrous God He is, He won’t force them into His offer of peace and blessings. Instead, He gives them exactly what they want.
Will Miriam make it out of the wilderness or will she be forced to wander just out of reach of the promised destination?
