Wednesday’s Word: Hagar, and Ishmael, and Sarai, Oh, Dear!

Are you like Abram and Sarai, who just couldn’t wait for God to act?

Are you like Hagar, who was used and then abused?

This story is for everyone who needs to be reminded to wait on God. His plan is best!

This story is also for anyone who has felt neglected by God. He sees you and will bless you!

This is Genesis 16, the story of Abram and Sarai’s impatience and the oh-so-complicated mess that they created in the process.

For friends new to this blog, “Wednesday’s Word” is a weekly Bible audio clip that rotates between Genesis, Luke and Psalms. Occasionally, I post “Wednesday’s Word to the Free,” a short Bible passage on what it means to be free. Freedom is a very big concern to Timley Mouse, the tiniest character in my upcoming novel, Bon Voyage, Sophie Topfeather!

On Sundays, I post an article-type post on themes in the novels: faith, friendship, diversity, etc. Thanks for reading! Feel free to share!
