So… About That Boaz


Before we start with these dating stories I must tell you that I am as clueless as you are , I make the same mistakes as you and just like every woman I hate all the dating rules. But that’s a topic for another day; today I want to talk about Ruth and Boaz.

I have attended so many seminars before; I’ve heard so many versions of Ruth and Boaz’s story. Ladies, Ruth was a really bold woman and I admire her confidence and attitude to go for what she wanted. Most of us wouldn’t dare because we are protecting ourselves and we fear rejection. 

But you see Ruth was not an ordinary woman, she was a woman of faith. It’s true that she made herself available to Boaz, she was visible enough to be found by Him. 
She must have had an extraordinary character that made her stand out from the other girls in the field. In everything Ruth was pursuing, she was after God and her heart was to serve the people of God. Way before the bedroom scene Ruth was serving.
The bible records that she lost her husband, had to deal with her grief and moved into a foreign land with her mother in law – to serve and look after her. To serve her people and serve the God she had come to know through her mother in law Naomi. But Ruth replied, “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God; Ruth 1:16.
Ruth was a woman after God’s heart and not after Boaz.  Her intention was to serve God and serve the people. She wasn’t perfect, she had a painful past but she wasn’t worried about getting married.
The bible says because of her hard work  and dedication Boaz noticed her,  he noticed how she served him and her mother in law and thought wow that’s a Proverbs 31 woman right there. God bless us we shall become that woman someday.  And Ruth the Moabite said to Naomi, “Let me go to the fields and pick up the leftover grain behind anyone in whose eyes I find favor. ” … Read the book of Ruth.
So I know it is easy to get overwhelmed by emotions and be under pressure because your mother keeps asking about the husband and your friends keep asking if you’ve met someone.
I mean if you looking for a man of God like Boaz, you better be kind of a woman that Boaz is looking for. Don’t be anxious about anything, if God can meet all your other needs, sure He will come through for you in this area.
 Don’t serve because you want to get noticed but serve because you love God and you love serving. Your intentions must be in the right place to avoid disappointment.
Always remember that Ruth didn’t look for Boaz she served him and she served God. Many blessings in my life came through while I was busy serving God, when I was busy chasing after Gods heart He met my needs.
I know sometimes friends will advise you to look, yes it’s because they love you and they care about you. But my take on this is if you gonna look for anything , start by searching for God’s heart and His will for your life. Serve God and serve God’s people so that you can learn to serve your husband as well. 
Boaz is on his way and when he comes let him find you busy serving your Father’s Kingdom.

Stay Blessed
