The Ruth Study was full of Jesus and completely life-giving. So many of the ladies had insights into the Word that I had never thought of and it was mind blowing.
I learned that even Naomi, who was bitter against God, was still pursued by Him. It helped to remind me that even in the midst of my sin, God loves me. Even when I'm bitter and angry, Christ pursues me. Even when I don't feel His presence, or can't recognize the good in the horrible circumstances I might be living, Jesus hasn't left me.
He has plans for me that are good and I know I can trust that, even if I don't feel it.
The women's ministry at North has pushed me to be in the Word, to pour out and love ladies even when I'm exhausted and don't necessarily feel up for it, and to pray ceaselessly. I'm blessed to be challenged by the leaders and participants alike.
