Reflections on Hannah

If you are reading The Story along with us, you know there is a lot going on in Chapter 10. If you are not, you can easily be brought up to speed by knowing that Chapter 10 of The Story summarizes 1 Samuel 1-15. There are a lot of things going on in Chapter 10 and there are a lot of things going on for me this week. That’s why I’m going to share with you two posts that I have written that speak to Hannah’s story.

Reflections on Hannah

The first is Keeping Promises Like Hannah. I wrote this back in May. It explores the extent of Hannah’s devotion to God and focuses on how hard it must have been for Hannah to keep her promise to God. Could you have?

The second is I Am Thankful for My Nephew, The IVF Miracle. Hannah, and many other women in the Bible can serve as a source of strength to those who are struggling with infertility.

What else strikes you about Chapter 10, 1 Samuel 1-15? Was it Samuel’s devotion to God? Was it Saul’s struggle to do what the Lord commands? Let’s get the conversation going with your comments!
