1 Samuel 1:10, NIV: In bitterness of soul Hannah wept much and
prayed to the Lord.
Childless and barren, Hannah wept. In considering her life, she felt unfulfilled and
lacking purpose. She wept in bitterness of soul. It is a feeling that many
Christians can identify with. We look at our lives, which sometimes seem barren and
fruitlessand we wonder whyand our heart aches for something more. Even as
Hannahs hope was in the Lord, so ours is also. Within in the most barren times, we
can turn to Him and pray, and know that in His time we will most certainly fulfill His
purpose in us.
