We often find ourselves stuck.... because of our own mistakes.... because of others actions.... sometimes just because of life. And in these circumstances we can become paralyzed, angry, and depressed. But God wants more for our lives. What if in the midst of our tight circumstances, of being stuck, God is working in our lives to provide wide open spaces of opportunity and joy. We can't see it because of our limited view or our refusal to want anything else.
Sarah and Hagar were two very different women, brought to a time of stuck due to a failure of Abraham and themselves to trust God. Betrayal, despair, and jealousy ruled their lives. Then God reminded both of them that they were not forgotten. That God saw them and their tight circumstances and wide open opportunities were provided. And in hindsight, God's plan was so clear. God see's you too! Wide open spaces are available for you; open your eyes and see God!
