Scripture Reference: Ruth 1:20-22
But she said, “Don’t call me Naomi; call me Bitter. The Strong One has dealt me a bitter blow. I left here full of life, and God has brought me back with nothing but the clothes on my back. Why would you call me Naomi? God certainly doesn’t. The Strong One ruined me.”
And so Naomi was back, and Ruth the foreigner with her, back from the country of Moab. They arrived in Bethlehem at the beginning of the barley harvest.
Naomi came back empty but just in time for the harvest. As a matter of fact she reaped a double portion because she went through the barley and the wheat harvest. Sometimes when we find ourselves back where we started don’t get bitter, rejoice! God may have just brought you back in time for the harvest.
