chronological day 97 :)

Good morning, my friend! Please read Ruth chapters 1, 2, 3, and 4:1-12.  Is this a favorite history for you too?  I love this book!

At what seemed like the end of everything (their husbands dead, three women left alone), the Bible says that Naomi and Ruth arrived in Bethlehem. I like when they arrive, look at this:

“And so Naomi was back, and Ruth the foreigner with her, back from the country of Moab. They arrived in Bethlehem at the beginning of the barley harvest” (1:22 MSG)

Emphasis mine –  they arrived at the beginning and I love that!  Not only the beginning – the beginning of the harvest, when it’s the season of gathering in crops. It’s not the end until God says it’s the end.  Imagine the joyful moment when they realized that God hadn’t abandoned them, still loved them:

“God hasn’t quite walked out on us after all! He still loves us, in bad times as well as good!” (2:20 MSG)

We ought to stand in awe and gratitude and wonder of His love every day! He still loves us, in bad times as well as good!

    Today’s readings was a quick but exciting few chapters, when all three husbands died me being new to the Bible didn’t know what to expect. I would imagine all would have stayed together, you know safety in numbers but I guess it’s only right that you still progress in life and move forward with another love/marriage if possible. I like the comment from Jennifer, GOD showed his presence and still loves us no matter what, went well with today’s service that pastor Spivey blesses is with as well.
