God Redeems Our Pain
welcome to today's encouragement from our daily bread I reading titled God redeems our pain was written by Karen Huang
 I was watched her friend loading her dental equipment into his car a fellow dentist he bought the brand new supplies from her having her own practice had been olives dream for years but what her son Kyle was born with Cerebral Palsy she realized she had to stop working to care for him
 if I had a million lifetimes I'd make the same Choice my friend told me but giving up Dentistry was difficult it was the death of a dream
 we all can go through difficulties we can't understand for all of it was a heartache of her child unexpected medical condition and relinquishing her own Ambitions for Naomi it was the heartache of losing her entire family and Ruth 1:21 she lamented the almighty has brought Misfortune upon me
 but there was more to Naomi story than what she could see God didn't abandon her he brought restoration by providing her with a grandson over bed
 Uber would not only carry on the name of Naomi's husband and son but through him she would be a relative of an ancestor of Jesus himself God redeemed Naomi's pain he also redeemed olives Pain by helping her to get a Ministry for children with neurological conditions we may experience seasons of Heartache but we can trust that as we obey and follow God he can redeem our pain in his love and wisdom he can make good come out of it
 today's our daily bread devotional scripture reading is from Ruth chapter 2 verses 20 through 22 and Chapter 4 verses 13 through 17
 the Lord bless him Naomi said to her daughter-in-law he has not stopped showing his kindness to the living and the dead she added that man is our close relative he is one of our Guardian redeemers
 then Ruth the moabite said he even said to me stay with my workers until they finish harvesting all my grain Naomi said to Ruth her daughter-in-law it will be good for you my daughter to go with the women who work for him because in someone else's field you might be harmed and now read chapter 4 verses 13 through 17 so bold as to proof and she became his wife when he made love to her the Lord enabled her to conceive and she gave birth to a son the women said to Naomi praise be to the Lord who this day has not left you without a guardian Redeemer may he become famous throughout Israel
 he will renew your life and sustain you in your old age for your daughter-in-law who loves you and who's better to you than seven sons has given him birth
 did Naomi took the child in her arms and cared for him the women living there said Naomi has a son and they named him moped he was the father of Jesse the father of David
 let's pray
 heavenly father thank you that we can trust you to redeem the painful stories of our life
 when we experienced Broken Dreams Comfort our hearts and remind us that you still have wonderful plans for us thank you Lord It's in Jesus name we pray amen
