Faith when it hurts?

September 16, 2012

Scripture: Ruth 1:1–1:5

Faith is not that difficult when life is good and easy, but it becomes a challenge when trials and difficulties come our way.  In this message from the first chapter of the book of Ruth, we see how a woman named Naomi endured a number of difficulties, including having to leave her homeland because of famine and the loss of a husband and sons.  However, despite her difficulties, God had good plans for Ruth, just as he has good plans for us.
