In Colliding with Destiny, Sarah Jakes takes you on a journey that has the potential to inspire you to see what it looks like when God’s hand is in the collisions that are in your life. We are familiar with the story of Ruth in the Bible. We more times than not hear about the ending of the story, the happy parts where she marries Boaz and later from her line comes King David, and eventually Jesus. But how often do we take the time to understand all the opposition that this incredible woman had to go through before she reached that place?

Sarah jumps right to the point in her first chapter: life does not always go as planned. 

Can I get an “Amen”?

Bad things can happen. We can find ourselves in places and in situations that we never dreamed we would end up.

This, is where Sarah shows us the hope that is found in the legacy of Ruth. When your circumstances collide with God’s grace, the reaction can act as a catalyst, launching you into your divine destiny. 

Sarah states: “… grace survives our most broken moments.” 

Colliding with Destiny is beautifully written in a 30 day devotional format with questions at the end of each chapter for you to contemplate and journal through. Also, each chapter starts with a short passage from the book of Ruth that Sarah uses as she shares parts of her own story and how she walked through the collisions in her life, by God’s grace, and by the example of a woman who went ahead of us all proving the beauty God can make with our brokenness.

Whether you lived a hard and broken past, or you are struggling with the present, you will find yourself encouraged and uplifted by Sarah’s words, and inspired by Ruth’s story. 

Destiny awaits!
