Many people who have suffered are afraid that matters cannot be made right. They fear that some things are permanently lost. Either a death has brought irreversible loss and grief, or some reversal in life has changed their dreams forever. But these are unacceptable words for believers in Christ. Just because we believe in Christ and in his promises, we are both convinced that our best days lie ahead, but that the past does not present us with unrecoverable loss. Rather we are convinced that all the past will make sense one day. Today we will learn that, like Ruth, we must see ourselves as moving from famine to fullness. With that, we must learn to confess three things.
