belonging to the LORD
today we read about Hannah and her faith. she, like so many, wanted a child desperately. and God heard her cry. it never ceases to amaze me that He really does listen to us. but He does. He heard Hannah's requests for a child. and He blessed her with Samuel.
she returned Samuel to the LORD... and he became His servant for all of his life. and from a very early age, God spoke to him.
we have an opportunity to be God's, too. He hears our prayers. if we ask Him to bless us with children, He will hear our prayer. if we ask to be His children, to belong to Him like Samuel did, not only will He hear our prayer, but you can be absolutely certain that He will say yes. that's what He wants for you more than anything else in this world. He wants you to be His.
God, please continually call me to be Yours, because that's where I belong.
