Exploring the tough questions about life, faith and Christ.
She was a woman of faith, mother to the prophet Samuel. We read her story in 1 Samuel 1 & 2. For years she went before the Lord, crying out for a child. Her husband was not enough to satisfy this deep craving of her heart. In her longing, she did not run from the Lord, she took her pain and wept bitterly before him. Only when she was surrendered enough to truly open her hands and say, not my will but yours, and promise the Lord that this gift would not be for herself but for His glory did the Lord open her womb. Because this gift could not satisfy the longing of her heart- only Christ could do that. And after she truly surrendered, opening hands and giving the child back to the Lord to serve Him as a priest, Hannah bore five more children. The Lord did not forget Hannah's faithful heart.
This piece by Kara Brathwaite gives us a glimpse into the anguish, longing and surrender of Hannah's heart.
