Random acts of Love

It's Finally February!! The love month and also my favorite month of the year.  I turn 25 on February the 10th!! (woohoo!!) I have been thinking and thinking of ways to celebrate my 25th and came up with a lot of options but only one truly stuck out to me! So what are my plans you ask???

For my 25th birthday I have decided to do 25 Random acts of love (RAOL)  throughout the month of February.  I wanted to show God how truly thankful I am for my 25 years on earth.  I want to  show him my gratitude by showing others love.

I keep hearing Matthew 25: 34-40 

34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in,36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink?38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you?39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

40 The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

I am so excited to complete this journey to celebrate my 25 years on earth!!! Be sure to check back everyday to see my new Random Act of Love.  or Check on instagram using the hashtag:

Small Beginnings

I  had to fall to my knees this morning and thank the lord when the song, Just the Beginning, came on during my quiet time with God.  I've heard this song before but for some reason it really captured me today.  I had to literally stop reading the word and lift my hands to God just to simply say thank you! This song led me to this scripture Zechariah 4:10

  How great it is to know that this is just our beginning, the best is yet to come, our story isn't finished yet. God has so much for us and has claimed victory over our lives.  If you are struggling with where you are in life, just know that God has put you there for a reason.  He is setting you up for something better and he has great plans for you! Don't be sad this is the beginning because God is rejoicing simply because you have begun!

Being Content

Life just seems to get away from us sometimes and it seems we are always and constantly searching for what's next.  I mean think about it,  at this age (24) it seems like someone is always wanting to know what's next.  Ever since I've gotten married all I hear is "So when are you guys going to have kids?" I'm not annoyed at this question and I know people are just being nice but .....dang can I live?? How about that!??

Our young adult ministry at church had a holiday party in December, and my pastor spoke about being content with where you are in life Ecclesiastes 5:18-20 it was a great message and really hit home because prior to that I had complained to my poor husband about pretty much every aspect of my life.  I was ashamed :-/

But the depth of that message  really didn't hit me until today! I am happy to announce that as of today I AM CONTENT!! I am happy with my life right now with just the two of us! I am enjoying being young and married and full of life!! I love my Job, my friends, my church, my dog, my clothes, my food, my family, EVERYTHING!  But really, what am I saying to God if I am not content,

"Thanks for this life lord, but it's not enough"

I refuse to be so unappreciative of everything God has given me and how far he has brought me!

Don't get me wrong, we do want kids but when the time is right.  I don't want to have a child just because that's what everyone else is doing and I want to fit in. NO! that's not fair to anyone! We do want to advance in our careers on day, but until then we will be happy with what we are doing, and we will do it well!

So regardless where you are in life, be content, work hard, and live happy! You got this!

a Ruthless Kind of Love - The Blog

So I have finally decided to blog!! I've had many inspirations and have decided that now is the perfect time for me to start a blog.  I've never been the type to let others into my life, but I believe it is time for a change, and this will be a great adventure for me! The idea for my blog was truly a gift from God, and I want to use my blog as a tool to share his word.

The name of my blog, A Ruthless Kind of Love, may confuse people or have them questioning my use of the word ruthless but  there are a few reasons why I chose the word ruthless.

1) The first being that my last name is Ruth and I thought it was a cute innuendo.

2) The second meaning is a lot deeper and one I hope to live out everyday.
The definition of ruthless - is having or showing no remorse. or in my words to do something with no remorse.  So I've decided to take a negative word and turn into something positive.

I want to start loving ruthlessly, I do not want to hold back or hide my love from the world, I am going to love people even when they do not love me, I am going to do EVERYTHING out of love, regardless if I want to or not, I am going to talk in a loving way, act in a loving way, and just LOVE!

Because the word says that we should love.  Our heavenly father wants us to love more than anything else! It is my job to please the lord at all times and I am going to love others in the same way that Christ has loved me. He loves me with NO regrets, NO remorse, and NO excuses! point. blank. period.

so here is to loving! (The right way)

"Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins."

- 1 Peter 4:8
