I have been keeping up, so far, with the Bible in 90 Days. This morning was rough, because we got in last night at 1:30 a.m. after a four-hour drive from my husband’s parents’ to my parents’ place. We’re spending a couple of days with my sister and her family, who are visiting from Florida.
However, I am doing my best to keep at it, and have kept a notepad beside me for the questions and thoughts that occur to me while reading. I think it’s funny how you notice something the 100th time you read a passage that you never saw before.
This week, while reading Genesis 21, I noticed something for the first time. It’s the story of Hagar. She has sat down and is having a good cry over her situation after having been banished by Abraham when Sarah is tired of having her around.
Then God opened her eyes and she saw a well of water; and she went and filled the skin with water and gave the lad a drink.” Gen. 21:18-19
This passage of scripture really intrigues me. Here’s Hagar, presumably just feet away from a source of water, but unable to see it. And God opens her eyes. She sees it, and she is saved.
What aspect of God’s provision is waiting for me, but I just haven’t seen it yet?
