Weekends in the Word – Not My Job

Now Sarai, Abram’s wife, had borne him no children.  And she had an Egyptian maidservant whose name was Hagar.
Genesis 16:1

While I am not barren and I have no intentions of hiring a maidservant anytime soon, I still found myself reading this passage and seeing the Sarai in me.

How many times do I think God is taking too long and He must need me to help Him out?

I mustn’t run ahead trying to make things work out the way I think they should.

I will only make messes.

Weekends in the Word is a ministry of Raising Arrows meant to offer a time of worship and encouragement specifically for those mommies who find themselves, due to circumstances beyond their control, unable to attend worship services with other believers. However, all are welcome here each weekend to feast on His Word.

  1. My husband and I have 5 children together and I have been praying and praying for 3 1/2 years to adopt my nieces little girl who was only in her mommy’s belly when the prayers began. She is unfit and young and my question is….. how long is too long to wait for an answer? I too have been sure he needs me to help out and get in the middle of the situation, however, I might just make a mess of it! I will be patient STILL and let HIM work it out. Great reminder.

  2. I’m afraid this is how I have been the past year since our oldest son passed away. I’m impatient (we are trying to have more babies), seem to have lost my way, and I need to lean on Him more, trust Him, and His timing. Thank you for the short (but important) reminder. Have a blessed Sabbath! :)

  3. I just wanted to say how much I appreciate that you publish the “Weekends in the Word” posts on Saturday (US Time). Due to the time difference, this means that I wake up each Sunday morning to a thought-provoking bit to start my week before heading to worship. I so look forward to these posts. Thank you! :)
