I’ve chosen a few examples to highlight in this article what I think might be inspirational and uplifting.Ruth was a married woman( an adult human female). She was married to Elimelech , a man of Bethlehem-Judah. He moved the family to a foreign land due to famine in their homeland. Their two sons married women of this new land. Later Ruth looses her husband and her two sons and is left with her two daughter-in-laws. She becomes very unhappy. Have you ever experienced disappointment? You feel as if the bottom has dropped from your life. Perhaps you’re facing the illness of a love one, you weren’t selected for your dream job, your health is fading, your prepared item didn’t get the “blue ribbon”, that you expected, your adult child get a dream job but has to relocate miles away from home. What about your 5k run and you sprang your ankle a few feet away from the finish line. All these things can be unexpected and disappointing. Change can be so painful in our lives. Many of us want to hold on to what we think is good , and can’t conceive the idea that change is inevitable. Where would our world be without the invention of the wheel, electricity, bridges, automobiles, medicine, and evolution?
