But what if he isn't meant for something extraordinary? What if he, like me, will never be 'great' as the world sees it. He may not be an amazing speaker, the president of the U.S., or the man who finds a way to prevent preterm labor altogether. What if he is just an average man, just as I am an average woman?
Maybe what makes Samuel great isn't what he WILL do...but what he is doing NOW. Living. What more can you ask from a child who had the odds stacked against him? How much 'greater' can you get than watching God answer prayers?
