Hannah, Samuel’s Mother : 

Hannah, Samuel’s Mother Samuel’s story begins with his “barren” mother, Hannah. 1 Sam 1:2 He [Elkanah] had two wives; the name of the one was Hannah, and the name of the other Peninnah. And Peninnah had children, but Hannah had no children. Although childless, she was the favorite of her husband’s two wives. But she was greatly upset by the insults of Elkanah’s other wife, Peninnah, who had children.

Shiloh : 

Shiloh It was the custom of Elkanah and his family to worship at the temple at Shiloh. For 400 years the Ark of the Covenant was located at Shiloh. Later in history the Ark was captured by the Philistines. When it was returned, David moved it to Jerusalem. On one of Hannah’s visits to Shiloh she vowed before the Lord that if He would give her a son, she would devote him to His service. She was speaking in an inaudible, mumbling tone. That attracted the attention of the high priest, Eli, who suspected her of drunkenness.

All Things Are Possible With God : 

All Things Are Possible With God Eli realized that he had misjudged her, he gave her his blessing, and she returned to her home with a relieved heart. Before the end of the year Hannah became the mother of a son, whom she named Samuel, it was about 1106 B.C. When you think of Hannah let’s not forget about: Sarah, the Mother of Isaac. Elizabeth, the Mother of John the Baptist. The women were “barren.” Their sons were dedicated to the Lord before their birth. All things are possible with God.

Hannah Keeps Her Promise : 

Hannah Keeps Her Promise 1 Samuel 1:24-28 Hannah keeps her promise and brings her only child, Samuel, to Eli at the Temple in Shiloh. 1 Sam 2:20 And Eli would bless Elkanah and his wife, as they were leaving for home. He would say, “May the LORD repay you with children from this woman for the gift she has made to the LORD!” 21 The LORD favored Hannah so that she conceived and gave birth to three more sons and two daughters, while young Samuel grew up in the service of the LORD.

Slide 6: 

Hannah had entered motherhood like many mothers before and since but there would come a day when all mothers must let go of their children. But Hannah had to let go when Samuel when he was but a child. Most parents are amazed at how quickly their children grow and leave the family to start their own. Hannah was truly a woman of extreme faith and trust in the Lord.

Slide 7: 

What mother among you would have enough trust in the Lord to give up your first born to the Lord’s service. In her marriage Hannah had struggled with her self-worth because she could not have children until meeting Eli and even he had misjudged her. In 1 Samuel 1:26 we see Hannah bring her only child to Eli and leave Samuel their to devoted his life to the Lord. What amazing faith, courage, and trust from a woman who questioned her own worth. She just like Samuel listened and trusted in God’s will for them.
