Ruth was born into a non-Jewish family and pagan nationality (Moab) that did not know or worship the one true God. However, she found favor with God when she chose to go with Naomi, her Jewish mother-in-law, and God blessed and chose her to become the matriarchal ancestor of our Lord Jesus. Now, whoever will accept Jesus is able to be grafted into the family of God.
Like Ruth, we cannot see the whole of our story, or of The Story. We aren’t meant to. But we can follow God’s lead, knowing that our yesses make a Kingdom-size difference, even when no one sees. // Ruth, Day 5 #SheReadsTruth

"In your waiting place, cling to the hope that never once has our God left our story unfinished and unredeemed. It may not look how we expected but, as with Ruth and Naomi, our story is His story—it was then and it will be in years to come. We are only to wait, to trust, to obey."
