Choices


Thursday is my day to write on the Laced With Grace Blog. Here is a little bit of what I've written:





We are, each of us, faced with choices. Some are the simple daily choices we make almost without thinking. Others have the potential to be life-changing. All of them, I think, need to be made prayerfully.
The story of Ruth in the Old Testament is the story of a young widow who made a choice that not only changed her life, but gave her a unique place in God’s plan for mankind. She chose to leave all that was familiar to her and follow her mother-in-law, Naomi, to a country she did not know. In making that choice she also pledged her loyalty to Naomi’s God. Her words have become familiar to most of us:
“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. Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the Lord deal with me, be it ever so severely, if anything but death separates you and me.”
Ruth 1: 16-17

Please join me there for the rest of Ruth's story - and ours.

Blessings,

I have been visiting Laced with Lace everyday. It is nice to read something by different women everyday. I didn't see your Ruth devotion there today. I always enjoy your blog.

What a beautiful reminder that every little choice I make during my day, with my kids and home, matters to Him. Thank you for your kind words and gentle spirit.

Choices... you are so right and the Ruth story is a great example. Thanks for the inspiration you give to so many with your wise words. You are a blessing to me.

I often ask God to help me be a Ruth. I don't know if I would be able to go far away without family and be so bold. But Ruth was for God's purpose. I think I'll head over to Lace and continue reading.
