What Was Sarah Like?

Do a page in your character notebook for Sarah.
Sarah was an active woman who laughed in disbelief, believed the impossible, and then laughed in happiness.
Sarah appears to have been a peppery, lively, animated, practical, and strong-willed woman. See Genesis 21:10 and Genesis 16:6. Can a person like that be used by God? List her character traits with examples from her life to prove your point.
Why was Sarah able to believe God for the impossible?

Getting Ahead of God

“Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement” (v. 5).
The fact that Sarah laughed (Gen. 18:10-12) when she heard that God was going to give her a son in her old age is not of importance. Didn’t Abraham also laugh earlier upon receiving this message? (Gen. 17:17). What is of importance is that she adorned herself with trust in God, “obeyed Abraham,” and followed her husband’s journey of faith.
Catherine was a tender, compassionate woman. She also was a woman of deep faith and great conviction. She was a quiet, reserved woman. This she overcame, however, in her desire to serve Christ. She accompanied her husband William to tent revivals as he preached throughout England. Later she became his strong supporter as together they founded the Salvation Army in their desire to reach the poor in England with the gospel. William Booth was blessed to have a godly wife who was adorned by the hidden man of the heart, an ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, and an astounding depth of trust in God. (L. Gayle Woods)

Any man is blessed to have a godly wife who is adorned by the hidden man of the heart, an ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, and an astounding depth of trust in God.
