This morning during my devotional time, I read Genesis 16. This is the story of when Sarai, unable to have children, gives Hagar, her maidservant, to Abram. Then when Hagar conceives a child, Sarai begins to take her hurt, insecurity, jealousy and anger out on Hagar.
Talk about dysfunctional!
Hagar must have felt so betrayed. So unloved. So used. So alone.
After the angel appears to her, “she gave this name to the Lord who spoke to her: ‘You are the God who sees me.’” Genesis 16:13
When I hurt. . .
When I cry . . .
When I feel all alone. . .
You are the God who sees me.
