An Intentional Routine

Posted in Prayer, Resources, Sola Sister Saturday on January 15, 2011 by Anna Valentine

A constant struggle for me in my Christian walk has been keeping a consistent time each day to spend in the Word and prayer.  I was really encouraged to read of this ladies club designed specifically for the purpose of exhorting one another to be persistent in rising early to meet with the Lord.  I have enjoyed reading the weekly updates posted by women sharing their real triumphs and struggles in their commitment to meet with the Lord first thing in the morning.  I hope that this will be as much of an encouragement to you as it has been to me.

A Fresh Look at Ruth

Posted in Sola Sister Saturday, Theology for the Church on January 9, 2010 by dvalentine

John Piper has a unique and powerful gift of communication. His poem concerning Job has been a great blessing to me and to many who have endured hard times as they strive to run this race faithfully before God. That work is entitled The Misery of Job and the Mercy of God, and I would highly recommend it. Piper has recently published a new work concerning the book of Ruth. Once again, he has tackled some difficult topics with a perspective saturated with a love for the gospel and the Sovereignty of God.

The world – its hardships and issues – must be approached with the right theological committments, a submissive spirit toward the Creator, and a high view of God. Piper looks at the life of Ruth with these perspectives. Ruth is just one of the fascinating woman of the Bible, and much is to be learned from the record of her life. We learn about this troubled yet faithful woman in the midst of bitter providence. Check out the clip below and be ready to get this book when available.
