On the Road to Love


This morning I am beginning the online study with Beth Moore and her SIESTAS all over the nation.
This summer study is on the book of Ruth. I actually began a couple of days ago because I just couldn't wait. I love it already! I know this is a book about God's Covenant Love.
As I read this morning in chapter 1, it struck me how God loved three very different women. Orpah turned back to her old life, but with the Blessing of the Lord because Naomi had spoken that over her. Naomi was filled with bitterness and grief, but tiny rays of hope were already shining. Ruth decided to follow her, but more importantly committed her life to the Lord and to going forward. I love what Kelly said about we can weep forward or weep backward.
I placed my feet on the road to Bethlehem-Judah this morning- The House of Bread with Praise.
