I wasn’t surprised when I read my next spotlight testimony which is why I titled it "I'll wait.” Upon reading it I was both inspired and on fire for God. This is why.
Ruby, growing up in a huge family in the middle of nowhere, was raised in the church. She attended Sundays and Wednesdays as well as getting involved in youth events. Essentially becoming a Christian and through that life change she committed her abstinence to God, vowing she would wait until she was married. Trusting God to deliver the right man into her life, Ruby was willing to wait.
After high school she didn’t want to go to college. She decided to take a year off and pursue other passions but kept in mind that she would eventually have to go. Moving to Pittsburgh with her older sister Crystal they both attended the Art Institute. It was her introduction into the world that would prove to be life changing.
Throughout her time in Pittsburgh, Ruby got to see the world from a new perspective. She saw some of her closest friends break commitments and promises that she thought would be held dear for all of life. This made her question her own beliefs. Could she remain pure? What did her decisions mean for her life?
Upon graduation, with a degree in photography, Ruby wanted to explore more of the world as well as get away from her sister so she moved to Fort Worth, TX to live with her aunt and uncle.
This was the time where her beliefs became a question of whether she truly believed or was it just something her family taught her to believe. Having conversations with other women in her life, Ruby wondered what it meant to be a Woman of God.
Even seeing her life around her change and adapt to the world she stood firm to her childhood commitment. She knew she wanted God in her life.
A high school friend joined Ruby in Texas and they eventually made their way to Spokane, WA. Her time spent there was where her commitments were truly tested. Having dealt with the feeling of being alone, being approached by married men and the thought of a man not wanting her for who she truly was as well as her ability to not give in completely made her feel tempted beyond normality, but God held her together. He taught her that loneliness and hardships were not going to make Him leave her side bringing to life a scripture she memorized as a child "I can do All things through Christ that strengthens me" Philippians 4:13.
Two years after moving, she knew it was time to move back to the East Coast again. With changes happening in her family, siblings getting engaged and her grandma passing away, she knew she was needed there. She moved back to Pittsburgh with her sister, until her sister got married. Then her sisters husband and her switched places. This was the first time in her life that she had ever lived by herself.
Living alone made her realize it would be nice to be married but also showed the beauty of being single. It was a fantastic time to seek more of God and live her life fully. She was talking with some guys but they were not pursuing her so she decided in August 2013 to actively seek more of God. This was when God acted in a whole new way and she got her first phone call from her soon to be husband.
God kept the two of them in each others lives continually confirming the friendship they had. She told Steven that she wasn’t going to kiss him, he having no problems with that asked about dating. Ruby asked if he wanted to meet her parents and he said yes. The rest was a beautiful snowball. They were engaged by Thanksgiving, married at the end of January 2014 and they had their baby girl in September 2014. Ruby knew that God had truly blessed her.
She knew that her husbands calling was music and watching him grow has been a roller coaster that they continue to let God control. Through the storms and test of time they formed and created OmniGod Music. Seeing the impact that OmniGod has on the world as well as the unique interactions and communications, has made for an incredible experience. Using her photography degree to bless the ministry has proved to be a God thing. Ruby is also the Content Manager of OmniGod Music. This is the way that she keeps things cleaned up and organized. Her part is essential to the operations at OmniGod Music.
Moving forward Ruby is reaching out to other women in ministry. Knowing that facing different paths is something that happens to all of us, but we are all here for God's purpose and we are victorious.
So whether you are an artist, girlfriend, a wife or just a friend. Ruby wants all to reach out to her. She wants to be a joyful encouragement to you! Through OmniGod Music we are an army reaching out for the world around us. No matter what remember you are a Conqueror.
Her husbands favorite question is "Did you ever think that you would be married to an Ex-con, Former gang banging, womanizing thug?
Ruby replies with this "When Steven asks the question about who I thought I would marry, I can tell you growing up I probably didn’t even have those words in my vocabulary. Looking at it now and continually having God confirm things in His unique way, I am sure that I am right where God wants me to be. Learning about street life and hip hop in a whole new way every day.”
I can tell you as a writer and a small piece in this ministry, Ruby has been every bit of the Godly woman she is known to be. Her part in the ministry plays a huge part in what we do. I titled this the way I did because of her commitment to God.
Waiting for the right man to come into her life was faith driven. She didn’t let the world change her beliefs and she was blessed for that. This is why Ruby Williams is a perfect spotlight.
Her constant loyalty to God paved a way for her path that God created. We thank you for all you do and for all you are to us here at OmniGod Music.
