“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – 1 Samuel 1:27-28




“This is the child I prayed for,

and the Lord granted me what I asked Him.

Now I make him over to the Lord

for the whole of his life.

He is made over to the Lord.”


– 1 Samuel 1:27-28 (JB)






Hannah’s touching dedication of her beloved son, Samuel, to God

is a beautiful act of faith

– she offered back to God,

what came through Him in the first place.


This is such a lesson for me

I who have so many blessings,

so many favours,

so many gifts received from God,

which I should recall with deep gratitude,

and give Him all thanks and praise for.


In what would be a most loving and liberating act of faith,

which would fully reflect a readiness to totally abandon myself to the Lord,

would I be prepared to humbly entrust back to God

all the good that He has given me,

all my possessions,

all my loved ones?


If we truly have the conviction

that God is omnipotent, all knowing and all loving,

then we should entrust ourselves, our loved ones, and our future

entirely back to Him,

so that His will…and only His will…be done!






Lord, You gave me all that I have, and it is Yours to take away.

May Your Name be praised.

May Your will be done!
