Well what a level of Faith, regardless of what cometh her way, she stead fastly walked with God. Many are times we just walk in our own way. Cause we can not wait on God. We must always note that without faith, we can't please God.

I can understand here that Elcana the real husband console Hannah and proving his sincerity to his wife who do not have kids.
Here we have to think ourselves that several time we had bitter experience such cases and how we all were handled it.I can assure here that Elkanah walked always with God.
