Do you ever feel invisible, like no one truly sees you or cares what’s going on with you? Have you felt like even God himself had forgotten you? Perhaps you’re feeling that way right now. If so, I’ve got an encouraging word for you in the story of Hagar.

Episode #4
Hagar – A Woman Not Forgotten

Show Notes

I used to feel sorry for Hagar. She was a victim caught up in circumstances beyond her control, and her story struck me as sad and hopeless. In fact, however, Hagar is a story of hope, a reminder that whoever we are, wherever we are, we are never invisible to God. 

The bulk of Hagar’s story is in Genesis 16 and 21, but to fully understand Hagar, you should really read Sarah’s entire story found in Genesis 11-23.

Genesis 16

Genesis 21
