Reading On Thursday Afternoon

"Your God will be my God"
Ruth 1:16

"Here we have a picture of God's ideal woman...Faith in God that sees beyond present bitter setbacks. Freedom from the securities and comforts of the world. Courage to venture into the unknown and the strange," (out of a a comfort zone-jg)"...Radical commitment in the relationships appointed by God. This is the woman of Proverbs 31:25 who looks into the future with confidence in God and laughs at the coming troubles...Ruth is one of the 'holy women who hoped in God...and did not fear anything that is frightening."(1Peter 3:5-6)
A Sweet & Bitter Providence-John Piper

This book just came in the mail, I couldn't resist getting started reading it, although there are other things vying for my attention. This will be another excellent book by one of my favorite authors.

You can purchase it here.
