You are a faithful and devoted woman. You are properly named for you are favored. I love you, and love that you never gave up. You wanted so much to have a child. You did not give up, your prayers never ceased. You prayed when others ridiculed you, and when some even said that you were drunk. You believed in Me, and you knew in your heart that I would answer you. You told me that if I gave you a child that you would give the child back to Me and that this child would live to serve Me.
I have answered your prayers and you have been blessed with a son. You have named him Samuel, and you did as you said you would. You gave him back to Me. He was raised to serve Me and not in your home. You kept your word to Me and I know it was hard to give up a child that you had wanted for so very long. Your song of praise to Me I hold dear in My heart.
Samuel is your blessing and he will do great things. Your heart of obedience is within him and he will serve with honor. I have a purpose for his life that will bless many. He will glorify Me with His life, and his service to the kingdom of Heaven.
You are a very special woman and you are always in My heart. Your trust and faith in Me has brought Me great joy, and I love you.
Your Abba Father
