TEN THINGS I LEARNED FROM A WOMAN


REFERENCE

1 Samuel 1 [Links] http://www.youversion.com/ or http://thewellcommunity.org/bible-reading-plan


EXPLORATION

Hannah grief lasted for years, [v.7 So it went on year by year ]and she brought it to the Lord. [v.10 She was deeply distressed and prayed to the Lord and wept bitterly] and she made a deal with God [v.11 and she vowed a vow…] but she didn’t stop there [v.12 she continued praying before the LORD ] she spoke from her heart,[v.13 speaking from her heart] troubled in spirit, pouring out her soul before the LORD. [v.15 I am a woman troubled in spirit…I have been pouring out my soul before the LORD] Speaking out of her great worry and frustration [v.16 speaking out of my great anxiety and vexation] and her pray is heard, and blessed [v.17 “Go in peace, and the God of Israel grant your petition that you have made to him”] and she believes [v18 went her way and ate, and her face was no longer sad.] and her prayer is answered in due time [v.20 in due time Hannah conceived and bore a son]
