Moses started with a HEART
But he had no HEAD and HAND.
To save his people, he killed an Egyptian,
And buried him in the sand (Ex 2:12).

He hid in the sand of Midian – for 40 years (2:15-23),
Until God ordered, "Come here!"
"I have a plan, my people are suffering!"
“Send someone else,“ he said, "my HEART is missing." (4:23) 
So God worked on his HEART.
He let him see
The hardheartedness of Pharaoh,
And the people's grief.

"Deliver them, please," cried Moses (5:21).
"Help, I can't bear it!"
Now his HEART was beating,
His HEART was free.

But Moses had no HAND.
“I can’t even talk,” he said (4:10).
But God wouldn't give up,
He worked on him again.

First He gave him a side-kick– Aaron,
Who challenged Pharaoh right down to plague #5 (5:1-8:17);
Then He let Moses grow -
One small step at a time.

By plague #2, he prayed for the calamity to stop (8:12),
And he would be an intercessor all his life;
By plague #6, he took over from Aaron (9:8)
And finished the job in grace and stride.
No HEAD – ask God to speak;
No HEART – He can make it beat again.
No HAND – be humble, submit, let Him train you,
But you must come out of the sand.

About Me

In the Old Testament in the Bible, there was a man named Jacob who "wrestled with God and man." He wouldn't let God go until God answered his prayers. God admired that and renamed him Israel, "the one who fought or wrestled and prevailed". He fought with man--his inner man--and conquered his own weaknesses. He's my hero. He is what I hope God and man see me to be.
