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
