The Grieved Heart of Hannah (5 of 6)
by Ken Trivette
In Herbert Lockyer's book, ''All The Women Of The Bible,'' his title for Hannah is, ''The Woman Who Personifies Ideal Motherhood.'' He writes, ''All that is recorded of this mother, who was one of the most noble Hebrews that ever lived, is an inspiration and benediction.'' Hannah is an inspiration as a wife, as a mother, and as a Christian. She is a model for every wife...
Hannah: Ideal Mother
by Stan Coffey
We are continuing down the original Route 66 as we are in a series entitled Bible Giants. This portion of God's Word is called, ''The Books of History.'' We are selecting one Bible character on which we will focus each Sunday. Today we are looking at ''The Ideal Mother.'' We will be looking at the mother of Samuel; her name was Hannah. What a wonderful mother she...
Hannah: A Woman of a Sorrowful Spirit
by Charles H. Spurgeon
Hannah answered and said, No, my lord, I am a woman of a sorrowful spirit. The special cause of Hannah's sorrow arose from the institution of polygamy, which, although it was tolerated under the old law, is always exhibited to us in practical action as a most fruitful source of sorrow and sin. In no one recorded instance in Holy Scripture is it set forth as admirable; and in...
Praying In Pain
by Tony Nester
I want us to spend a little time with the story of Hannah this morning. In our story Hannah has a thanksgiving meal but ends up in tears. This might not sound like a Thanksgiving Sunday sermon, but I hope to show you otherwise. Hannah was one of two women who were married to a man named Elkanah who lived in the...
Seek - Hannah's Prayer (1 of 3)
by Jason Dees
When I was in middle and high school a lot of my buddies got into professional wrestling in particular the WCW, we were all playing sports and working out a lot so maybe it made sense but I remember going over to my buddies houses and watching the WCW on Monday nights and we all kind of had our favorite wrestlers and the good ones always had a signature move or a finishing...
Things Our Mothers Taught Us
by Joe Alain
This Sunday is Mother's Day, so I thought you'd enjoy this list of things our mothers taught us: My Mother taught me LOGIC: "If you fall off that swing and break your neck, you can't go to the store with me," as well as, "If everyone else jumped off a cliff would you do it too?" My Mother taught me HUMOR: "When that lawn mower cuts off your toes, don't come running to me."..
How to Move Forward When Stuck in Neutral
by Ernest Easley
As you're turning to 1 Samuel 1 I want to ask you a personal question this morning: is your life stuck in neutral? I mean when you look at your life today, it just doesn't seem to be going anywhere. It's not moving forward like you had hoped and dreamed. It's not really moving backward, it's just not moving and you're stuck in neutral. Soon after Julie and I got married, I thought it...
A Tribute to Mothers
by J. Gerald Harris
We have heard some beautiful tributes to mothers today. Thank God for Christian mothers. John Quincy Adams, the sixth president of the United States, said, "All that I am my mother made me." Abraham Lincoln, the sixteenth president of the United States, said, "All that I am or hope to be I owe to my angel mother." Dwight L. Moody, the famed evangelist, declared…
A Model Mother
by Nelson Price
JESUS CHRIST honored His earthly mother and appealed by example and exhortation for you to do the same. The need abides for mothers to be honored as well as for them to be honorable. The Old Testament contains the story of a young wife and her ambition to serve the Lord as a mother. She is the model of a good mother. Women, let me ask you a vital question. If you...
Hannah's Source of Discouragement (6 of 6)
by Daniel Rodgers
In our story this evening we find Hannah weeping. She is weeping for at least two reasons: first, that she was not able to bare children; secondly, that she was being made fun of and being mocked because she had no children. Our message tonight will center around Hannah's burden, her source of discouragement...
