Have you ever had an experience where you thought going to THAT place or with THAT person would give you a certain satisfaction, but it didn’t work out the way you expected? Did you set out full and hopeful but now find yourself now coming back empty and in despair? In today’s message we enter scene two of Naomi and Ruth’s desperate story as they begin to try and turn things around for themselves. We’ll see God begin to work His plans through the decisions of people as Naomi and Ruth make a plan for survival and then celebrate when God shows up and provides for them. We’ll face some practical questions for our own lives about how we can find hope and reasons to celebrate in the midst of our circumstances.
