On April 8, 2006, 2 weeks before my 40th birthday, I married my Boaz, Marvin. It had been a long, hard wait. I wish I could say that I bravely held on, always sure that God would come through, but I cannot. I doubted God A LOT. And I went out with a lot of men, more out of desperation than love. But God was faithful anyway. At the right time, after I had been broken and had let go of the reigns, my knight in shining armor showed up, pursued me, loved me and married me. And, my sisters, it was worth the wait.
Then the Lord showed me prophetically that there would be a whole company of women who, like Ruth of old, would pursue God and wait for His best. Ruth’s Company would be an ever-increasing army of women choosing God’s ways above their own and standing as beacons of hope in a culture full of compromise.
But it is not only single women who need to be reminded to take the high road. All women, single and married alike, can succumb to the unrelenting temptation to settle for good enough. And so, this is a Company of Christian women seeking God’s best in every area of life, no matter the cost.
