Cling to the Rock

No one is holy like the LORD!  There is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God. 1 Samuel 2:2

   Tormented!  Mocked and ridiculed!  These were just a few of the unkind, sarcastic remarks that Hannah had to endure from the lips of her husband's other wife, Peninnah.  Peninnah felt no sympathy and gave no slack in her persistent harassment of Hannah.

   Hannah poured out her heart to God and prayed for a son.  She promised to dedicate him to God and He answered her prayer.  Her son Samuel became a judge and prophet in Israel.

   As a child, I knew what it meant to be shunned, made fun of, harassed by bigger kids, and left out of games and activities.  It wasn't until ten years later that I came to know Jesus as my personal Savior.  How thankful I am that God never gives up in his pursuit of sinners.

   Are you lonely, depressed, fearful, uncertain -- take it all to Jesus.  Like Hannah, pour out your heart to God.  He will listen and answer according to his will.

Thought for the Day: God is waiting for you to call upon him.
