But as I reflected on their trials during my morning walk today, I remembered that Scripture contains the solution to every problem we humans may encounter in our fallen world. And what popped into my mind next was the memory of a message I heard several years ago during the Christian Music Hour at Care-Age of Brookfield--a message prepared and delivered by our five-star preacher Chris Carrillo, who had been providing the residents of Care-age with knowledge, wisdom, and eternal hope for many years, until COVID-19 shut us down last March.
In this short sermon, Chris explained how one heavy-hearted woman overcame her bitter disappointment and sorrow, with eternally significant results. It’s the story of Hannah, as told in the Old Testament book of 1 Samuel. Here is Chris's message, ready to inspire anyone who is suffering through any sort of intense and prolonged trial.
