We have all been deeply stung by the sharp wounds of rejection. At times we have felt unwanted, cast aside, mistreated, and abandoned by others. Perhaps you have experienced such bitterness and sorrow that you feel as though you may implode.
We’ve all been there. We try to put on faces of good cheer when we are around others, but sometimes we just cannot mask the inner turmoil we feel.
Have you ever wondered in the midst of your darkest moments if God really sees you? Have you found yourself questioning whether or not he really cares about your pain and suffering?
Imagine experiencing this type of rejection on a daily basis from someone within your own home. Picture yourself waking up each day to the devastating reality that you are unwanted, unwelcomed, and treated worse than the scum beneath your sandals.
This is the resounding theme within the story of Hagar. As an Egyptian slave, she had no rights, and was completely at the mercy of her mistress Sarai. Hagar did not even have the rights to her own body, and had no choice but to sleep with her master Abram at the demand of Sarai, as an attempt to produce an heir for their family.
Imagine being in Hagar’s shoes. No rights. No voice. No opinion on a delicate matter that clearly involved her. We can only imagine that she felt completely and utterly unseen.
In this Bible study, we will walk through the tragic and unfortunate events of Hagar’s story, and find glimpses of hope in the midst of her suffering. Traces of cool springs in the midst of a piercing desert.
As we walk in her sandals, we will also uncover the truth that God meets us in our own desert seasons, and walks with us through our difficult stories of hurt and rejection.
So get ready to be taken on a powerful journey. A journey that will take us straight into the arms of the One who truly sees us.
