Sarah laughed when she heard that she would be a mother in her old age. Probably because she had named herself as a bitter, forgotten, useless woman.
But time had come for her to make a choice. Would she be a help to herself, her future, or would she continue as before?
She chose her future. She chose to see herself as needed, helpful and loved. The Lord blessed her inkling of optimism and blessed her as mother of the nations.
God sees us at our best. He doesn’t hold our worst against us. Neither we should we. Let bygones be bygones. Jump at the next opportunity the Lord gives you— I promise you there’s one coming.
