But Naomi said, “Return home, my daughters. Why would you come with me? Am I going to have any more sons, who could become your husbands? Return home, my daughters; I am too old to have another husband. Even if I thought there was still hope for me—even if I had a husband tonight and then gave birth to sons—would you wait until they grew up? Would you remain unmarried for them? No, my daughters. It is more bitter for me than for you, because the Lord’s hand has turned against me!” At this they wept aloud again. Then Orpah kissed her mother-in-law goodbye, but Ruth clung to her. “Look,” said Naomi, “your sister-in-law is going back to her people and her gods. Go back with her.” But Ruth replied, “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the Lord deal with me, be it ever so severely, if even death separates you and me.” When Naomi realized that Ruth was determined to go with her, she stopped urging her. So the two women went on until they came to Bethlehem. When they arrived in Bethlehem, the whole town was stirred because of them, and the women exclaimed, “Can this be Naomi?” “Don’t call me Naomi,[a]” she told them. “Call me Mara,[b] because the Almighty[c] has made my life very bitter. I went away full, but the Lord has brought me back empty. Why call me Naomi? The Lord has afflicted[d] me; the Almighty has brought misfortune upon me.” So Naomi returned from Moab accompanied by Ruth the Moabite, her daughter-in-law, arriving in Bethlehem as the barley harvest was beginning.
Ruth 1:11-22 (NIV)
Critical to how we engage the external matters of our lives, including the people, places, and things, is our relationship with ourselves and our decisions. If we are not confident about who we are, we will be less confident about the things we engage and connect to giving away our power and ability to drive our own narrative to others. The key to your success and reward of your life and life more abundantly generally in life and specifically in your circumstances is your ability to drive the narrative. Thus, as we inhale that which will support us in living in our maximum potential we must discern as well as release, Exhale all excess baggage and toxicity that will prevent us from pressing forward, driving our own narrative. Therefore, we must be clear about our position; where we are, and where we are going, and in doing so can be sure of the connections necessary to get us from where we are to our expected destination, including being available. Breathe: New Life by your willingness to Exhale that which does not support you in motivating your confidence in and around you to be totally available to press forward intuit which an and should be for your living, living in your life and life more abundantly!
