Ruth’s Story—Redeemed

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: Abandonment. Rejection. Discouragement. These are painful experiences. But the Lord can use the most difficult chapters of our lives to write a different story, full of hope.

Dannah Gresh: This is Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth, co-author of You Can Trust God to Write Your Story.

Nancy: We see God’s redeeming grace in the Old Testament in the life of Ruth. She was newly widowed and chose to stay with her mother-in-law, Naomi, who was also a widow.

God used their losses to bring them to Bethlehem where Ruth met a man, a “kinsman-redeemer,” named Boaz. Boaz showed Ruth kindness and ended up marrying her. Naomi was cared for, and many generations later, Jesus, the ultimate Redeemer, was born from this family line. 

When tragedy seems to reign, you can trust that the God who writes the best redeeming stories, is at work in your story. 

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
