The day after Thanksgiving I finished the book of Judges in my personal study. Ruth was next, but I had just studied it not long ago, so I was planning to move over to First Kings. I literally turned past Ruth, then a couple seconds later, turned back, my insides churning. My gaze tilted slightly upward as I spoke in my heart. “Really, Lord? I thought John was the next Cling study.”
What’s that proverb? “The mind of man plans his way, but the LORD directs his steps” (Proverbs 16:9). I prayed as my insides kept churning and here we are. :) It’ll be a while before John gets edited, but meanwhile, let’s feast on Ruth together!
