Genesis 21:1-7The Message (MSG) 21 1-4
God visited Sarah exactly as he said he would; God did to Sarah what he promised: Sarah became pregnant and gave Abraham a son in his old age, and at the very time God had set. Abraham named him Isaac. When his son was eight days old, Abraham circumcised him just as God had commanded.
5-6 Abraham was a hundred years old when his son Isaac was born.

Yet here I am! I’ve given the old man a son!
These grace filled moments when God speaks into our lives, kairos, help us discern better what God is saying to us (Repent) and what we are gonna do about it (believe). Those are the 2 questions that are a part of the circle above. In the discipleship huddle that I am a part of, processing kairos for one another has created opportunities to listen more intently at how God is at work in me (in us) and how we get to participate in what God is doing.
I must say that God is up to some incredible stuff through God's people, Abraham and Sarah being two.
The thing about experiencing kairos is that God shows up at times we don't expect and waiting sucks. Abraham and Sarah have this promised child when they are a 100 years old....LOL!...literally.
