But Ruth replied, “Don’t ask me to leave you and turn back. Wherever you go, I will go; wherever you live, I will live. Your people will be my people, and your God will be my God. (Ruth 1:16)
I have always loved this passage of scripture. It is the perfect reminder of what commitment to another person is all about. I long to be the kind of friend that Ruth was to Naomi.
I often sing a song in church that talks about going where God goes, staying where God stays, and saying what God says. I often wonder if my actions truly show what my mouth speaks. Lately, I haven’t been remembering to ask God where He wants me to go. Or whether I am already in the place I need to be. I have been feeling like I am constantly running. With a full-time job, kids to get to school, ministry responsibility, home life, etc., there doesn’t ever appear to be any down time. In the busyness of my day, I often forget to stop and ask God where He wants me to go and what He wants me to do. Lately, I have been hearing God asking me to “slow down, and stay with Him a while.” Oh to sit at the feet of Jesus, without a care in the world. That’s where I long to be.
I feel blessed to have the opportunity to review this beautiful product from DaySpring as part of their May Inspired Deals. As soon as I opened the box, I was giddy with joy. It has been a desire of mine to have scripture art throughout my home, and this beautiful set of two chocolate wall art pieces is a great start. I love how the big letters lay against the chocolate brown finish. I chose to place these pieces in my entry way so that I could look at them while I am rushing out the door and be reminded not only of the places God has called me to go, but that God calls me to “sit and stay with Him for a while”.
