Chapter One

Sarah

Which means "chieftainess" or "princess."

* * *

By faith Abraham, even though he was past age-and Sarah herself was barren-was enabled to become a father because he considered him faithful who had made the promise. And so from this one man, and he as good as dead, came descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as countless as the sand on the seashore.

Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as it had been said to him, "So shall your offspring be." Without weakening in his faith, he faced the fact that his body was as good as dead-since he was about a hundred years old-and that Sarah's womb was also dead. Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised. Hebrews 11:11-12, Romans 4:18-21

Sarah's dream was to give birth to a son. God hints at his purpose for you by planting dreams within your heart. Find a quiet place and spend some time focusing on your dreams. Ask yourself what dreams you've been too busy, too afraid, or too disappointed to pursue. Write them down and pray about each one. If you take the plunge, you might just find yourself joyfully echoing Sarah's words in Genesis 21:6: "God has brought me laughter."

* * *

Father, thank you for loving me despite the fact that my soul still contains shadows that sometimes block the light of your Spirit. As I grow older, may I trust you more completely for the dreams you've implanted in my soul and for the promises you've made to me. May I be surrounded by laughter at the wonderful way you accomplish your purpose despite my weakness.
