Let me just say you don’t have to try so hard! You don’t have to live up to the expectations. You don’t have to take their words to heart. You just have to be. You just have to walk in His grace. Not pretending, not holding it all together, but just being authentic. Be you!
When it’s time to take an uncomfortable stand that potentially puts yourself on the chopping block, you might hesitate or try to get out of it. I’ve been there! Like Esther, we need to find our courage and take a stand. Not only for ourselves, but for others as well.
A lot of us face situations where we have the opportunity to take a way out. A way that would make it easier for us. A modern day Ruth however choses to be loyal, ultimately to God. She allows God to direct her path. She choses to have faith in God and depend on him for strength throughout any process.
