Bitterness of Soul

Hannah, the future mother of Samuel, had a burden upon her heart, but rather than letting it make her a bitter woman, watch what she did with her burden, “So Hannah arose after they had finished eating and drinking in Shiloh…And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed to the LORD and wept in anguish. Then she made a vow…” (1Samuel 1:9–11).
She wanted something from the Lord, but was willing to give Him something back.
Do you have a burden that you believe the Lord can relieve? If so, speak to Him about it, but also think to yourself what you can give back to Him, for why should He give to you, if you are not willing to give to Him?
