Though the Bible

27 July 2016



1 Samuel 1


In addition to the sadness and stigma of being barren Hannah also had to deal with an insensitive husband and relentless torment from another woman. Yet in 1 Samuel 1 we see how God hears Hannah as she pours out her heart and blesses her with a child who will have a major impact on the nation.
