“From Bitter to Restoration”

In the book of Ruth, Naomi was a woman that was full when she left her homeland with her husband and two sons. They resided in Moab for years then she lost not only her husband but also her sons. She decided that she would return back to her homeland where she could at least be around people she knew. She returned with her daughter-n-law Ruth. It had been years and they did not expect to see her again.

Naomi had left her homeland because of the famine looking for something better in a neighboring country. As she was entering into town one of the women said “Can that be Naomi.” Naomi did not want to be called by her name as she had gone out for a better life and return home a bitter woman. The name Naomi means “Pleasant, delightful, and lovely.” She did not feel like a pleasant, delightful, and lovely woman so she asked to be called Mara, which means “bitter.” She felt as GOD had done her wrong.

Naomi thought GOD did not love her because to her he took everything that meant anything to her and she had nothing left. What she did not know was that there was a method to the madness, and that is what we have to think of sometimes in life is that GOD has us to go through things in order for us to get to where he wants us to be.

Her restoration came through Ruth by her gleaning in Boaz field. Ruth found favor while gleaning. Ruth 3:1 reads, “My daughter, shall I not seek security for you that it may be well with you?” Naomi saw hope at this time, she gave some instructions to Ruth to follow. Doing this is where restoration started coming back for Naomi. To her she had no life left to live. As it is stated in Ruth 4:15 “And may he be to you a restorer of life and a nourished of your old age; for your daughter-in-law, who loves you, who is better to you than seven sons, has borne him.” Naomi was truly on her way back to being called Naomi again and not Mara.

Can you identify with Naomi? Is there something in your life that has cause you to be very bitter? Do you feel as though you do not have a reason to live?

Here’s what God says about all that seems unrecoverable in your life; Luke 18-27 states that “the things which are impossible with men are possible with GOD” I can’t say how he will do it but he will restore you from that bitter state that you are in. If you see yourself A “Mara”, there is restoration for you, trust me it is not too late. GOD had planned it and he will do it.

While you are going through your transformation from bitter to restoration your name may change, it is because of the purpose and the promise that GOD has on your life. Don’t just sit on what GOD has for you, let him in to guide you in all that you was designed to do and be. Get rid of the negative get rid of the clutter get rid of all that is not of GOD so that you can receive your total and complete restoration.

GOD wants you to know that you have to sometimes go through the wilderness in order to see the greatness that he has for you. Don’t let your yesteryears stop you from being restored into what GOD not MAN but GOD has promised you.

Read the whole book of RUTH and be blessed. GOD Bless You Much Love

Obeying GOD’s Word

Isaiah 61:1-3 “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;  To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.”

 

“ARE YOU THE PROVERBS 31 WOMAN – VIRTUOUS WIFE?”

PROVERBS 31 WOMAN – THE VIRTUOUS WIFE

PROVERBS 31 VERSE 10-31 DESCRIBES THE VIRTUOUS WIFE, IF YOU ARE MARRIED I ASK YOU TO STUDY THIS AND MAKE SURE YOU ARE THIS WOMAN IF NOT MAKE THE NECESSARY CHANGES.  IF YOU ARE SINGLE AND WANTS TO BE THIS VIRTUOUS WIFE ONE DAY YOU CAN START NOW MAKING THE CHANGES. 

Who can find a virtuous wife? For her worth is far above rubies. The heart of her husband safely trusts her; So he will have no lack of gain. She does him good and not evil All the days of her life.  She seeks wool and flax, And willingly works with her hands.  She is like the merchant ships, She brings her food from afar. She also rises while it is yet night, And provides food for her household, And a portion for her maidservants.  She considers a field and buys it; From her profits she plants a vineyard. She girds herself with strength, And strengthens her arms. She perceives that her merchandise is good, And her lamp does not go out by night.  She stretches out her hands to the distaff, And her hand holds the spindle. She extends her hand to the poor, Yes, she reaches out her hands to the needy.  She is not afraid of snow for her household, For all her household is clothed with scarlet.  She makes tapestry for herself; Her clothing is fine linen and purple. Her husband is known in the gates, When he sits among the elders of the land.  She makes linen garments and sells them, And supplies sashes for the merchants.  Strength and honor are her clothing;  She shall rejoice in time to come.  She opens her mouth with wisdom, And on her tongue is the law of kindness. She watches over the ways of her household, And does not eat the bread of idleness.  Her children rise up and call her blessed; Her husband also, and he praises her: “ Many daughters have done well, But you excel them all.” Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands, And let her own works praise her in the gates. 

GOD BLESS YOU WOMAN OF GOD
