I'm working on finalizing some retreat material for a study called, "Sarah: A Woman out of Control". No slander meant to our girl, Sarah. The ultimate point will be that we need to get comfortable with the fact we aren't meant to hold the reins to our lives.
Anyway, I'm praying now over the portion of Scripture where Sarah got her Ishmael - and then despised him. (Genesis 16) Have you ever manipulated to get something you wanted and regretted it deeply when you got what you asked for?
Just curious...I want to be sure I'm speaking in relevant terms on this point and thought you girls could give me some insight...
