First, I would like to wish all my readers a very happy Easter4May you have many blessings this day6I started the book of 1 Samuel today. It struck me that Hannah prayed for that child and immediately gave him up to God. How hard that must have been to give him up! What if she never had another child? Yet she willingly gave him up, keeping her promise to God. How loosely do we hold onto things that God wants from us? He wants everything in our lives divoted to Him. The other thing I notice, and this is not theeason to do this, but it says the Lord was gracious to Hannah. He replaced what she gave Him with even more than she could think or imagine! He will do the same for you! He says that if you give, it will be given to you, “shaken, pressed down…” Wow! What a Savior!
