But Ruth replied, “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God.” Ruth 1:16

One of my favorite stories in the bible is the story of Ruth.

When we are introduced to Ruth, we meet a woman who is in mourning the loss of her husband, the love of her life. Ruth is enduring enormous suffering, but she still chooses to serve others despite her own grief and pain. Ruth chooses to trust in God’s plan and rely on Him no matter what the circumstances.

I don’t know about you, but my desire is to be a woman who chases after God’s heart and continues to seek Him no matter what my circumstance or how hard the situation I am facing becomes.
Through Ruth’s obedience to God, she created a life full of abundant love and blessings for her and her family. Ruth remained faithful to God and He blessed her.

He blessed her with a beautiful love story. A love story between Ruth and Boaz. God believes in second chances. If we remain faithful He always restores better than before. Just like Ruth, God can turn your heartache and loss into your greatest love story to ever unfold. God blessed Ruth with a love better than she could have ever imagined, and her legacy of love continued through the lineage of Jesus and beyond!

What a wonderful example for women today to follow!

So the challenge for you now is to read the book of Ruth, you will be blessed!.

“Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill His promise to her!” ~Luke 1:45

My name is Cheryl Downum, 2015 was a difficult year for me. I chose to separate from my husband because of his unrepentant abusive behavior and a year later we divorced. I moved from Atascadero ca to the Temecula Valley in Socal. As I’ve walked this journey, I’ve found myself growing closer to Jesus. My heart is now infused with empathy for others that find themselves in this place. And, God has given me a story, a message of hope to share. A message birthed in my brokenness that brought forth a sweet-surrendered dependence on God’s unconditional acceptance and love. The reason I am writing this blog is; I have found in my life that the Lord often uses our deepest pain as the launching pad to our deepest calling. My desire is to encourage His children to seek a deeper relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ. I hope that as you read my blog, you will feel inspired and encouraged. Thank you for visiting!
