Have you chosen to trust in the Lord, your God? Have you come under His covenant protection plan? Or are you hoping for a reprieve from all turmoil ? Consider Ruth the Moabitess of the Old Testament. Ruth left her homeland, her people, her culture, her religion, her family, and her friends to follow after the God of her husband's family. She left it ALL!! Ruth's decision was to remain faithful to her widowed mother-in-law and to her God. What a courageous woman! What a bold decision..."It hath fully been showed me, all that thou hast done unto thy mother in law ...how thou hast left thy father and thy mother, and the land of thy nativity....and a full reward be given thee of the Lord God of Israel, under whose wings thou art come to trust".(Ruth 2:11-12).
