Joseph’s Journey – Redeemed during hard times.

We catch up with Joseph now that he has been sold into slavery, by his flesh and blood.  The hatred that his brothers had towards him forced him into a foreign land, sold to strangers.  The feeling of despair that must have been so prevalent in his mind.  The fear of what will happen to him in this strange place.  However, we see that God did not abandon him, He never left his side.  What does it mean to be redeemed during hard times?
