"Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress." Psalm 107:13
I will go back to Ruth tomorrow, but this verse was part of my devotions yesterday. It really hit home, as the night before last, I was laying awake, worrying that I would not have job, I had just signed a one year lease, Joined a gym... I was freaking out, and crying to the Lord. The next day, He answered me and saved me from the distress. God waits until we come to Him, and stop relying on ourselves. He wants us to admit we need Him, and that we cannot do it on our own. As soon as we do that...our Prayers are answered!
