As Miriam is drawn to Elisha, sensing that he is a holy man, she is forced to face the disappointments of her past as they collide with the hope for her future. Struggling with the conflict of life's failed expectations, Miriam's faith is tested even further when Elisha promises her a great blessing. "Do not lie to me!" Miriam pleads, knowing that a lifetime of sorrow lives behind the very thought of such a promise. Yet the blessing proves true. Joy and happiness fill the void of emptiness, and nothing can take that from her. Or can it?
Hope of Israel shares with us Miriam’s journey and how, when all she holds most dear to her is taken away, she does not abandon her faith but instead runs to it.
