Week of July 16th - Promises Kept (Sarah)
By Kerry Connelly
Genesis 12-13; 15-18; 20-21
Have you ever felt forgotten by God? Does God renege on promises? Is it possible that, as we go through life, we miss God’s work in our lives because we are focused on the stuff we’re not getting?
This week, we’re going to look closely at the story of Sarah, mother of the Hebrew faith, wife to Abraham, mother of Isaac, and woman of God. We’ll examine this idea of promises delayed and promises fulfilled. And we’ll remember Sarah for who she was — a woman who was betrayed by her own husband more than once, who felt forgotten, and who made mistakes, but a woman for whom God showed up anyway.
