Ruth: Not Forgotten

​We all know what it feels like to have our lives interrupted by conflict, pain, and loss. In these seasons it’s easy to believe we’ve been been forgotten by God—that through our unworthiness or his inattention we’ve somehow slipped out of his hand or drifted from his love. The story of Ruth is one of conflict, pain, and loss, and yet it’s a story that sparks in us the hope we need to mourn what we’ve lost, accept where we are, and trust in the loyal love of God to carry us forward. The book of Ruth is an invitation to trust that God will uphold us with his loyal love and accomplish his purposes for our lives.​
