Jakes, Sarah. Colliding with Destiny: Finding Hope in the Legacy of Ruth. Bloomington, MN: Bethany House Publishers. 2013, 2014.
With an easy to follow set-up, this book shares a passage from the book of Ruth followed by the author’s personal story coupled with thoughts for the reader to ponder, a journal page of self-examinations and a prayer. Beautifully completed with page ornamentation, this devotional assures us we are not alone nor are the first to venture the road…
A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
As the women’s ministry leader at a church in Dallas, Sarah Jakes has grown up in the church. Though making painful mistakes throughout her life, she acknowledges them and has turned them into a learning tool of grace, love, forgiveness and faith from our Father. Paralleling her own life to Ruth and ultimately our own as well, Colliding with Destiny encourages the reader to accept her chosen path yet realize God loves us just the same. Part devotional, part Bible Study, part friendly conversation, this book is full of encouragement for the women who need it most (all of us). As an expanded edition of the originally published book, I am unaware of the changes but found this edition to be complete.
