What will be, will be

To rest in the assurance of

Secure in the inevitable

Glorious redemption

At peace with it all

Not knowing

But not worried

In the bosom of the Holy One

 

Glory to the one who created May

The month of Iyyar of the year 5778

Many discuss but don’t fully understand

A day, month, and year

A cycle of formality

That must take place

In order for the world to go round

Don’t fret He is on the way

Be ready, always

Reflection

During my quiet time tonight, I read the book of Ruth. During and after reading a chapter, I jot notes for later reflection. The book of Ruth is only 4 short chapters but they pack a punch. A gut punch is more accurate and brings many thoughts to the forefront of my mind. 

Just the thought of what type of person Naomi and Ruth were. Ladies were left to survive on their own in a world that viewed them as less than. They relied on each other to make it. What courage and tenacity it took for them to keep going? They did not allow their circumstances to defeat them. They faced their circumstances, together, head on and succeeded. 

So Heavenly Father, as I reflect upon your message within the pages of your servant Ruth, I ask that you will enable your people to be courageous, bold, and tenacious. May we build godly relationships. May we not fall to our circumstances but elevate above them. That we as a people turn to you, to place our faith and trust in you. May we stand sure and yield unto you. Most of all that you receive all of the glory from all that we do! Amen. 

But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
Hebrews 11:6 NKJV

Father,

Oh, how I desire to please you in all that I do and with all of me. I have placed my faith in you. Where I am weak in my faith, Lord strengthen me. Build me up in you and teach me your ways. So that I may be pleasing within your sight, my worship & praise be true, and my witness stand the tests. Amen.
