In 1 Samuel you read about Hannah. She was a childless woman, she was Elkanahs second wife. His first wife Peninnah had children, she would taunt Hannah about being barren. Hannah never let her barrenness effect her worship. She took everything to prayer. Every hurt, every desire, every tear. She didn’t continually ask God for a child, she just worshipped Him. She praised Him for being Him.
Sweet friend, don’t allow your barrenness to weigh down your worship. Don’t let that consume your prayers. Praise God for being God. Worship God through your tears. Include Him in your celebrations. Remember Hannah’s example: praise Him through the pain, and worship in the waiting. He will fulfill your hearts desire. Praise Him for the child He is going to give you. If it’s not His plan to give you a child, still praise Him because He has good things for you always. Praise Him in ALL things. He is good and He knows what is best for our lives! Be like Hannah and worship through the pain.
“Deeply hurt, Hannah prayed to the Lord and wept with many tears.”1 Samuel 1:10 CSB
