So many goals swirling in my brain. So many dreams wanting to take root. I see them. They give me hope that new things are wanting to break through. This year I want to take time to hone the craft of writing. Five Minute Friday is a great place for me practice and be encouraged by other writers as I write. I will set the timer for five minutes and then write. Here we go! I am excited to invite you in, welcome.
I have been in the book of Ruth for the past 7 months and what I have discovered about the Lord’s goodness has blown me away.
I wonder if you have felt as I have at times. Empty with not explanation as to why you feel this way. Maybe you have had a hard time finding purpose in the mundane moments of life. I have felt at times like I am toiling and not finding purpose in the work of my hands because it seems as if things happen to me by chance.
But then, I see Naomi and Ruth walk the path set before them well, albeit hard and full of frightful turns. As they persevered, at times reproachful of God’s ways, I also found that God in his providence was making their path straight. Not just straight to success but straight to his heart. Where their only hope of being full and fulfilled was found.
I wrote this devotional for me and for you. To bring us hope in the waiting. To give us strength to persevere, and remind us that in returning to the Lord we have all we need. He will always fill our emptiness because He is faithful.
Join me over on Faith Social and spend time in the book of Ruth where you will see that a chance to filled up is completely available.
