Miriam

“I will sing to the LORD, for he has triumphed gloriously; he has hurled both horse and rider into the sea.”

Continuing on through the 7 prophetesses and today I’m highlighting Miriam! I’ve spent a fair amount of time reading and being exposed to the story of Moses and the escape from Egypt and Miriam was never at the forefront of that. I don’t know if it was mentioned (or more likely I glossed over it) wasn’t mentioned but I never realized the source of their water for 40 years was Miriam’s well – a well that disappeared when she passed. The most interesting account I’ve read was that is a was a rock that would roll with them through the desert and bury itself in the sand when they stopped to produce water. 😳 That. sounds. AMAZING!

There’s too much to cover here in a social media post; from her ministry of music and dance, to her being the sister to watch over Moses in the Nile, to her witness of the destruction of the Egyptians in the Red Sea; Miriam is quite an interesting character that probably doesn’t get highlighted enough! 🙌

On another note; I have a niece named Miriam and she’s pretty awesome!
