When the Bitter Leads to Blessing
by What Preacher Ed Said

Ruth 1-2

When in life you experience the bitter
One important thing you must consider
Though painful trials can be distressing
Sometimes the bitter will lead you to blessing

Frequently God will delay to deliver
His narrow road does not always glitter
But we have to trust and not start guessing
When darkness all around us is pressing

God’s ways and His plans are so much bigger
Still His light at times seems so much dimmer
Though at intervals we can be stressing
Yet step by step we are still progressing

Naomi went through a time that was bitter
Even in tough times she was not a quitter
The loss of her family was depressing
But it led her into amazing blessing

Naomi could not view the whole picture
But she would journey through this the victor
And when you find yourself in times depressing
By faith in Jesus keep on confessing

To Bethlehem He led her in the bitter
God saw her heart and she would not wither
If you hold on to God through the distressing
You will exchange the bitter for a blessing

Wait my daughter until you learn how the matter turns out

Ruth 3: 18

Then she said, “Sit still, my daughter, until you know how the matter will turn out; for the man will not rest until he has concluded the matter this day.” (NKJV)


Jeremiah 17:7-8
Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord,
And whose hope is the Lord.
For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters,
Which spreads out its roots by the river,
And will not fear when heat comes;
But its leaf will be green,
And will not be anxious in the year of drought,
Nor will cease from yielding fruit.

hope you have a great day!
thanks for stopping by!!
