Diana hosts a wonderful activity every Monday at her blog. This is the first time I am participating although I have loved the idea since she began it.
I have been reading 1 Samuel for a few days and I ended up reading and re-reading chapter 1. In verse 19 I found like I was being encircled by the Lord. The verse reads: And they rose up in the morning early, and worshiped before the Lord, and returned, and came to their house to Ramah: and Elkanah knew Hannah his wife; and the Lord remembered her.
Now I understand what is going on in this verse. This is the second wife of a man. Hannah has prayed and made many offerings unto the Lord and God answers her prayer. She prays for a child, and God gives her Samuel. But what spoke to me is this: and the Lord remembered her.
This is such a comfort to me. Hannah was remembered. Wow! Without taking too much time, I will just say that this is the verse that I have needed. I have needed to read about someone like Hannah. Not known by any, and even shared her husband. Many times I feel like my life is so small. That my actions, my life, is unknown to all. But God remembers even the meek. I know this, I have known this, but sometimes I allow the day to day grind to be more important than it is.
So I will close with thanking Diana for hosting such a blessed introspective post. This really is something that makes one reflect on the Lord and His word. Thank you.
