The potency of the book of Ruth—the real gutsy ezer story I’ve written about in The Gospel of Ruth, not the happily-ever-after Cinderella romance version we’ve been fed for too long—is changing women’s lives, including mine! Nothing quite equals hearing a woman say, “I will never doubt my relevancy in the kingdom again.”
May more of us soon be able to echo those words. I am so grateful for this powerful Old Testament message and for the opportunities I have to get it out.
Thanks to Tumelo Moloto for this photo, which she posted on Facebook along with her impassioned feedback after reading The Gospel of Ruth.
“You have no idea how much this book has impacted my life. Really a blessing and I wish all women could read it. I will never doubt my relevancy in the kingdom again. So much confidence now that I have no need to doubt that as an image bearer, Ezer I mean so much to Him, because it’s all about Him. Thank you so much for your dedication to the kingdom & may the Almighty continue to bless you and all the works of your hands Carolyn Custis James ❤!
