When Moses' hands grew tired, they took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur held his hands up—one on one side, one on the other—so that his hands remained steady till sunset.
Exodus 17:12

Whenever Moses held the staff of God up Joshua was unstoppable as he fought the Amalekites. Yet his human strength couldn't keep it going all by himself. Fortunately he had Aaron and Hur ready to jump in and do their part.

WOW, timely verse to get me kick-started! While it's possible to do this thing called life (thanks Prince) with just the strength of God and my faith in that strength it's so much easier if I surround myself with my own Aaron's and Hur's. We left an amazing group of people back home but I can't wallow around in my suburban cave. We've found a church, that's the first step. Now to get involved again....deep breath.....ok. I think we're ready.

Father, I need a community like I had back home. I don't know how long you'll have me here but best to plan for the long haul (please not 40 years). I know I have to do my part but I also know you'll lead the right people to us.
