Am I Staying or Going? (and a Giveaway!)

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”.

    I just recently started following your blog!  I would choose Baraka” (Blessings) – Wire Beaded Bracelet for many reasons. It is pink and I have three boys no girls so I love a pink thing now and then and it helps out women in Kenya and reminds me to pray for expectant moms there.  Love the thought of a prayer reminder bracelet!
