For Such A Time As This...

For such a time as this.... I love these words from the book of Esther and I hold them and the ladies who walked through them with me so so close to my heart. When plopping myself down in bible study (Esther: It's tough being a woman by Beth Moore ) I am so sure that God laughed out loud at me. I was going to the study to grow yes, but I wasn't going to be completely turned upside down and shaken! I can only imagine how God must laugh with his sweet children when we act without having a clue of how HE is getting ready to shape us! The story of this woman's conviction, boldness and use of the blessings she had been given sparked a fire and urgency in me that can not be put out. It has been a hard year, one full of heartache, dissapointment, waiting, crying, pain, asking why, and begging for God to come in and clean house. Yet it has been a year of growth, a year of shifting from self dependance to an "all in" type of consuming faith in the fact that God is who He says He is and that HE is enough. It's been a change of mindset of what it means to follow Him fully, to be willing to risk all to go the path HE asks us to go. It's been about submission and transformation. It's loosing my need to be in control and giving myself freely to walk by faith, not by sight. It's been a year of trusting daily without being able to see the big picture and knowing that even if I walk alone on this earth, I will never be out of the hands of my GOD and HIS provision and blessing are absolutly enough.
