Sarah's Story (Part 1)
I would love to visit your church or ladies Bible study group and share this design with them! One person will receive this design while the rest of the group will receive a small design that goes with the story. I don't charge for this service, but I do invite attendees to give a free-will offering to support this ministry.
One of the really stinky things about not living forever any more is that these bodies are constantly decaying, things are always going wrong with them. And one of the most heartbreaking things that can go wrong is when a woman struggles with infertility. Whether you can't get pregnant to begin with or whether you can't carry a pregnancy full term, Sarah is a woman who could definitely feel your pain.
Many years after Adam came a man named Noah, and after him came Abraham, and he married Sarah, but Sarah was infertile. She rode a rollercoaster of emotions when God promised her husband that his descendants would outnumber the stars, and still Sarah's womb remained empty.
Can you imagine what she might have been thinking? Have I done something wrong? Did my husband marry the wrong woman? Am I defective? Will this cause my my husband to stop loving me? Does God even hear my cries?
After years of heartbreak, when Sarah was 90-years-old, Sarah gave birth to a son named Isaac. And Isaac became a very important person in God's plan to rescue His children from lies and sin, and so did Isaac's descendants Joseph and Moses, but I'm already getting ahead of myself here...
God sees your pain and your shame. He sees the tears that you cry after everyone else is asleep. And He always shows up. He may not show up the way you thought He would or in the timeframe you expected, but from my own personal experience and from the stories of all of these other women in the Bible, I can guarantee that He always shows up.
Note: This model has glitter poofed on top of her wet henna. This just makes the henna pretty while the paste is on. Once the paste comes off, the glitter comes off as well, revealing the regular red-brown stain underneath.
