Known By Name: Hagar

In the Face of Rejection, God Says I’m Significant

Hagar’s story, found in Genesis 16, is a story of cultural victimization. She was betrayed, abandoned, and scorned. Her response? She did what most of us would do when deeply hurt by someone we trust—she ran away. She got defensive. But deep down, she still hoped for redemption. Even when life doesn’t affirm you, God does. What is unresolved is not unseen by God.

Known By Name: Naomi

When I Feel Worthless, God Says I’m Enough

Naomi’s story, found in the book of Ruth, is a story of lost identity. She lost her husband, her sons, her home—everything. She reacted by becoming bitter. But even in her angry, fearful, rather dramatic season of self-pity and despair, God kept showing his faithfulness. When you go through trauma, loss, and hardship, God remains close. He can and will redeem even the darkest circumstances.
