Overview

At some time in life we all beg God to perform in a way we think is best. Even a woman of strong faith can experience a crisis of faith when life doesn’t turn out as she expects and she knows God could intervene on her behalf. Sarah, Rachel, and Hannah thought God should provide a child and pleaded with Him to honor their hearts’ desire. In different ways, each woman took matters into her own hands when God’s timing didn’t match her timetable. Face-to-Face with Sarah, Rachel, and Hannah explores various issues in women’s lives that lead to pleading with God and ways they react when He doesn’t immediately respond or they don’t like His answer, as well as guiding women to learn to rest in God’s sovereignty and wait on His timing.
