Hagar & Ishmael were sent away

Genesis 21:14-19

Is it possible that in her pain & despair, Hagar assumes the worst-that God is not with her and that He will not help her, that He doesn’t see her suffering-and that this perspective blinds her to the well in front of her?

Is it possible that in our own trials and pain, we let that same lie sneak in? Maybe this time He won’t come to my aid-and my eyes become so fixed on that lie that I’m blinded to the grace and joy right in front of me, all around me, or perhaps right around the corner? 

We need God to open our eyes to ideas and possibilities for our books even when our resources have been used up and we feel like we’re dying in the desert.

He wants to inject hope into our writing like a cool glass of water in the midst of drought. 

As you may recall, Hagar found herself in the desert more than once. In chapter 16, near a spring in the desert as a pregnant runaway, she encountered the angel of the Lord and declared, “You are the God who sees me” (El-roi)

You & I will also find ourselves in the desert more than once. And more than once, the God who sees us will be more than faithful to provide for our deepest need as we cry out to Him.
