03 Providence

February 26, 2023 • Rich Millhouse • Ruth 2

The Providence of Covenant Love says, "God is for us!" Sometimes, for God to make us beautiful, He has to refine us, strip us down, empty us. Naomi begins to see the grace of God through the provision and protection provided to Ruth by Boaz, a close relative. God is patiently transforming Naomi from "Bitter" back to "Pleasant." How is God transforming you? What trials might you consider a blessing in disguise? Video for the song: TheCatLadyJ Music in this video: "Blessings" by Laura Story.
