Life is in phases and men are in sizes. So many people need to put their lives together today. Their lives and homes are being pulled apart and their jobs are in jeopardy. For these people everything seems to be crashing down around them. They are falling apart physically, mentally, socially, financially and most of all spiritually. Ruth in the bible was able to put her live together and find happiness and fulfillment in the will of God. A New York hotel maid walked into a room one day, intending to get it ready for the next occupant. Then she discovered that the former occupant had not yet departed. He was lying there dead, he had committed suicide. The maid found this note �I leave to society a bad example. I leave to my friends the memory of a misspent life. I leave to my mother all the sorrows she can bear in her old age. I leave to my wife a broken heart and to my children the name of a drunkard and a suicide .I leave to God a lost soul that insulted His mercy.
1. DO NOT RUN FROM YOUR PROBLEM: Problem can be a weight or a wing. You either see your problem as a stepping stone or a stumbling block. Naomi and her family left Bethlehem Judah(House of bread) because was a famine in the land, she headed to Moab with her family she went out full but came back empty, she lost her husband and her two son in search for a greener pasture. Problem never leaves us the way it found us. Every problem will change you. Failure does not mean God has abandoned you, it means God has a better idea. Learn to face challenges with faith in God .Naomi found more problems that she had before. She got double trouble. Change in geographical location does solve problem. What determines your outcome in every problem is your response to it.
Events + Response = Outcome.
If your response is positive the outcome will be positive, if your response is negative the outcome will be negative. The best way to solve your problem is to find solution. Problems exist to be solved.
Note: Problems are the price of progress. The obstacles of life are intended to make us better not bitter. Every problem introduces a person to him. Finally great trials are the necessary preparation for greatness.
2. DO NOT HIDE YOUR PROBLEM: You must go through a little discomfort to experience a new level in life. It is only those who are proud that always hide their limitations. Naomi tried to hide her problem, she wanted to pretend as if nothing had happened but the truth is that one thing, something, and everything happened to her. She tried to cover her disobedience. You can not hide your problem for long because it has a way of expressing itself. It is better for your life to be changed than to be chained. When you do what is right what is wrong will leave your life. Failure and mistakes can be a bridge or a barricade to success. When you find yourself in difficult circumstances you can decide to
i. Cover up; which is what Naomi did
ii. Give up; which is what Orpah did
iii. Stand up; which is what Ruth did.
Ruth decided to stand up despite losing her husband
3. DO NOT BECOME BITTER AGAINST GOD: No matter what house you live in, would not you rather be there than the best hospital in your city. If we take time to think more, we will certainly thank more. Count your blessing, do not discount them. Do not become bitter with your creator but rather be thankful to him in all situation good or bad. Thankful words do not cost much, yet they accomplish so much. If you can not be satisfies with where you have reached, be thankful for what you have escaped. The most highly satisfied life can be found in been thankful. The words think and thank come from the same Latin root. Naomi means �pleasant� but she was not at all pleasant. She said call me not Naomi but Mara for the Almighty hath dealt very bitterly with me. The name Mara means bitter. It comes from the same word as Myrrh, the bitter perfume that was used for embalming. Never blame God for your problems and failures. Adam, the first man, blamed God for given him Eve.
If you want to put your life together, avoid these three mistakes.
