The story of Ruth is a journey of transformation. By allowing God to transform her circumstances, Ruth went from a widow who would be excluded from society to a wife with a secure and protected future, a future that ultimately paved the way for the birth of King David! Her story is full of collision--loss, heartache, poverty, even shame--but she never let her past define her. Instead, the most painful time of her life became her most pivotal, propelling her to a destiny she never imagined.
Perhaps you have a past you're struggling to overcome. If disappointments, whether a result of your own choices or the actions of others, have kept you from being your true self, this book is for you. Follow Ruth's life and discover the hope available to each of us. Your yesterday does not have to dictate your tomorrow.
Despite your past pain, you, too, can find redemption and restoration.

Melissa4 Stars Out Of 5Enjoy a journey through RuthDecember 30, 2014MelissaQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3I have always loved the book of Ruth. Probably even more so since reading Tessa Afshars fictional account of Ruth in her book In the Field of Grace.
What Sarah did in Colliding with Destiny is take the scriptures apart and then write a short chapter reflecting on how these words can apply to our lives today. She takes examples from her own life and shares her mistakes, regrets and deepest hurts.
You could easily make this book a daily devotional as most of the chapters are only a couple of pages long. Each chapter ends with Sarah sharing a bit more in a Journaling section and then asks questions so you can journal or share in a small group your thoughts. There is also a short prayer at the end of each chapter.
Sarah gave me some new insights into this familiar, yet powerful, story. If you enjoy the book of Ruth and encouraged by her I recommend this book as another way to delve into these scriptures.
A copy of this book was given to me in exchange for an honest review.
Ruth StilesCentral NYAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Christ guides your destinyDecember 28, 2014Ruth StilesCentral NYAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Colliding with Destiny is a walk through on the life of Ruth. Each chapter covers a little bit of her life with journaling ideas or just thought-provoking questions to dwell and think upon throughout the day. Ruth's story is one of loss and heartache that rewarded her with riches untold as she came into the line of the Messiah. Her destiny aligned with the life of her Christ and no impact could be better. The author wants, Sarah Jakes, wants this for her readers as well. There is hope in your circumstances, your situations, your loss, and your heartache.
I encourage you to pick up a copy of this book today. See what God has in store for you through your life, and discover the real you in the midst of your life. The real you is Christ in you. Sarah Jakes's quote "Your yesterday does not have to dictate your tomorrow" is a saying to remember for all times of life.
I was named for my Great Aunt Ruthie but the book of Ruth still feels like a type of Namesake - not that I have anything in common with Ruth's historical and family story, but as a person I feel I can relate. This is a book about a journey. Life is a journey. Your life, my life, everyone's life. Journeys are about transformation. This transformation maybe be small or large, but with any journey there is a change and an impact. God used the circumstances of Ruth's journey to change her into the woman He wanted her to be. I long for this in my life.
I received this book from Bethany House and am not being compensated for my review.

I love the story of Ruth and was eager to read this book!
But the book relates Sarah Jakes experiences to the events of The Biblical Ruths life, where it fits.
I think this book would appeal especially to other women have made similar life choices. I think this book could be of best value to those who are striving to reach out of despair, whether from choices or circumstances.
But, here and there, there is a nugget for all-one chapter heading, Those who love you will protect you is a concept that could apply to all. God Will Put like-minded people in your life, and broken people can still be used (by God for good) these attitudes of self-acceptance enables your collision with Destiny. Finding Gods will for your life is your destiny. This book could inspire you and support your search for your personal destiny history.
