But Ruth replied, “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the Lord deal with me, be it ever so severely, if even death separates you and me.”
Ruth 1:16-17 NIV
The willingness that Ruth had to follow Naomi is the same willingness that I pray that we have to follow Jesus, even if it means us completely stepping out of our skin and completely wrecking the plans we have designed for ourselves.
Here’s to denying my messy comfort zones and letting an all-knowing God take the lead as I venture the paths that He has formed for me. Here’s to grabbing His hand and dancing in His sea of redemption, gaining consolation that the fears holding me back from Him will soon come to dust. Here’s to a beautiful God that knows the plans He has for us, ready to take us to places we could never imagine.
Here I am, Lord. Where You go, I will go.
