Today I read a verse that I don’t believe I have noticed very often. I think that I have stumbled over the verses that sit above it…I will let you look them up so that you can see if you have done the same.
“as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord. And you are her children, if you do good and do not fear anything that is frightening.”
I Peter 3: 6 (ESV)
I thought about Sarah today.
I thought about her laughing when she overheard that she would soon be with child at her advanced age.
I thought about how when God spoke to Abraham all those promises that He would pour over his life…that those promises included Sarah.
I thought about how Sarah left all that was familiar to walk in step with those promises.
I thought about Abraham telling Sarah to pretend that she was his sister more than one time.
I thought about Sarah giving birth…for the first time…
I thought about Sarah holding her son with arthritic hands.
I thought of her trying to get up off the ground after playing with Isaac.
I thought of her waving goodbye to Abraham and Isaac as they journeyed the road the Lord had set before them.
I thought about how different her life looked from the vantage point of age.
I thought about how the path of obedience is long…at times narrow…often times scary.
I thought about how Sarah did not fear anything that was frightening.
Today I thought what a privilege to be called one of her children…
