"I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink, but I have poured out my soul before the Lord."Indeed, she did not pour wine and drink in her distress and bitter weeping, but instead she poured out her soul before the Lord in prayer. I am thankful for a God who is sovereign of creation, life and my soul -Soli deo gloria.
- 1Samuel 1:15b (emphasis added)

On Prayer, Wine, And The Soul
I am humbled by Hannah's prayer. Moreover, I love her response to the Priest, Eli, who thought she was drunk. Hannah replied with, in my opinion, an interesting play on words that highlights a disposition of her soul that is worthy of reflection.
