Something to think about.
The Biblical story of Hannah in the book of Samuel is the story of a woman with tenacious faith. She poured out her life and her heart to God in her desire for a child. She promised this child would belong to the Lord and indeed after weaning (he may have been 4-6 years of age) he was consecrated to the Lord in the Temple as a servant of the Lord. This child – Prophet Samuel was anointed by HIM and became one of the Greatest in Israel. He in his turn anointed David who is the ancestor of Christ the Messiah Lord and Saviour. What about Hannah?
Her first born son was Samuel but she had six more children. God’s complete answer to her prayer was SEVEN.
A gentle question for all of us to ponder. Does you life still have a purpose and a goal you may not yet even realize?
Has the complete ’roundness’ of your life yet been achieved?
It’s all about RELATIONSHIP. Never losing our passion and hunger and passion for more of Him and asking……….’What do you require of me….this day? In my life, my family and my wider community.
There is a Russian Proverb” The riches that are still in the heart cannot be stolen’.
Have you still got a God Dream? Is there still a goal to be achieved?
It must be all about HIM not yourself. Loving Him with your whole life, heart and mind first, and THEN….asking the question…. has my life in You yet been completely rounded like the Number 7 of Your perfection……. and the seven spots on the ladybird?
Something to think about.
LIVE! LOVE! SHINE YOUR CHRIST LIGHT!
I have no idea what the Lord might be holding out for me later. I will live as long as he allows and discover what it might be.
Oh, sweet Faye! How your post has touched my heart…..❤️ Going in to marriage my beloved and I were told, due to several genealogical reasons, our chances for children were minimal. But we placed our full trust in the Lord and were ‘open to life’ should He deem it to be His desire for us. I relied on the faith & trust of Hannah. Our first pregnancy ended all too suddenly with the heartbreaking loss of a son, who we named Samuel “Because I have asked for him from the LORD.” 1Samuel 1:20.
And as I continued to read your post, I feel (as if) you have delivered a message to me from my beloved son. I have been struggling, for far to long, to take a leap-of-faith to follow down a path I can hear the Lord calling me toward. His voice is just around the bend and it’s so patient and gentle each time He encourages me to ‘trust in Him.’ Today, I am filled with the vision of a little boy standing there beside Him, his little hand tucked into His, encouraging me ‘Trust, Mommy, you should come and do what He asks of you.’
Hugs to you for this unexpected gift…
God has used you this day.
All glory and honor to Him.
Thank you for commenting. Some days it is indeed hard to comprehend why I feel prompted by God to blog as I do yet, I know and TRUST that He will speak from His Heart to someone who may read the entry. Keep praying and listening dear one….in His economy your life still has so many possible bends, mountains and twists. ‘ Come and do as He has called From the ‘little’ offering of the heart He can do and does MUCH. May you find rich Grace ahead. xx
