A Statement of Facts


Joseph, the Son of Israel (formerly Jacob) is one of my favorite charcters in the Bible.  I have been going through the Genesis account of

Joseph's life, again.* 


     I had written about Joseph in my Journal entry for December 31, 2003.  What suffering he endured!


     The Lord was molding and making Joseph into the humble man and strong leader God wanted him to be.   Thus Joseph was taken from a pit to a prison.  Then, after many years in that prison for a crime he did not commit, the Lord allowed various circumstances to come about that would cause Joseph to be placed in a palace and become the second in command to the Pharoah himself.


     Although I am guilty of the crimes I have been charged with, as opposed to Joseph, who was innocent on all counts, I believe the Lord is doing something similar with me as He did for him. 


     God is taking me along the "narrow road" that leads to eternal life.


     Such a road with its narrow passages is filled with many spiritual potholes, trials and temptations,  But the Lord is with me wherever I go.


     And as for Joseph, he eventually obtained his freedom from both prison and later on, from Pharoah's household altogether.  He was able to return to his father and his family.


     Yet while I may never be able to return to my father or be reunited with my family, I am experienceing the same spiritual freedom Joseph had.
