Happy Times (1)

God is so wonderful! He blesses all of us with times of happiness in our lives. Today and for the next few days we will look at some happy times in the Bible.

Our Bible verses today tell us about Sarah. She was married to Abraham. Both Abraham and Sarah loved and obeyed God. But they were sad because they were not able to have children. God promised Abraham and Sarah that they would have a son and many descendents.

Abraham and Sarah waited for many years. Finally, when Abraham was 100 years old, “Sarah became pregnant and gave birth to a son” (verse 2b). This was a happy time for Abraham and Sarah. Sarah said, “God has made me happy, and everyone who hears about this will be happy with me” (verse 6b).

The birth of a child is truly a happy time! Take time today to thank God for the children in your life.
