It’s Wednesday ladies and time for our mid-week devotional!
Have you ever given up on things and thought to yourself God is really dealing with me? Why is He being so hard on me? This didn’t go as planned, then that happened, and now this! Just in a woe-is-me funk? Well, this week’s devotional is from Deeper Waters entitled Stories of Beauty. It talks about part of the story of Naomi.
And she said unto them, Call me not Naomi, call me Mara: for the Almighty hath dealt very bitterly with me. ~Ruth 1:20
I know when I read this I thought “shoot, I know just what you’re talking about Naomi.” I’ve gone through some really bitter and ugly moments in my life and some of those hardships I thought were going to take me out. But see, God saw differently (Praise Him) and now I have a testimony of redemption. He’s turned my bitter into sweet and my ugly into beautiful!
Ladies, nothing is as bad as it may seem. The truth is: not to run from it, but to face it, embrace it, and wait on God to redeem it!
Enjoy your Wednesday!!
