I love the devotionals in She Reads Truth app. Never watered down or shallow, but always deep and full of good truths. ❤️
"Deeply hurt, Hannah prayed to the Lord and wept with many tears. Making a vow, she pleaded, 'Lord of Armies, if you will take notice of your servant's affliction, remember and not forget me, and give your servant a son, I will give him to the Lord all the days of his life...'" (1 Samuel 1:10-11). I read Hannah's story and I see myself-not because our struggle is the same, but because our hearts are. Like Hannah, I long for what this imperfect life on earth does not give. Like Hannah, I want to be known and remembered by my God. And while all my prayers to Him are not answered with a "yes," they are heard and I am known. I am remembered. Just like Hannah. "My heart rejoices in the Lord;
my horn is lifted up by the Lord.
My mouth boasts over my enemies,
because I rejoice in your salvation" (1 Samuel 2:1). First Samuel begins with a beautiful picture of a heart bowed in earnest before the Lord of all creation, asking for what only He can give. And while all the stories in this study will not be quite so tender, they all point to the same reality. The Lord of Hannah-and Samuel, and Saul, and David, and Israel-is the Lord of you and me. He reigns throughout all generations.
