Two years ago I wrote in my journal:
Here’s what happened. When a story starts like that, you know it’s gonna be good.
So I was intrigued to learn that’s how the book of Esther begins. Beth Moore always teaches/preaches right at me, so I am quite sure some interesting things are to come over the next weeks of this study.
That, and I do love a good story about a queen.
1 This is what happened during the time of Xerxes, the Xerxes who ruled over 127 provinces stretching from India to Cush: 2 At that time King Xerxes reigned from his royal throne in the citadel of Susa, 3 and in the third year of his reign he gave a banquet for all his nobles and officials. The military leaders of Persia and Media, the princes, and the nobles of the provinces were present. (NIV)
Do stay tuned!
30 Days Of Grace
What a strong woman Esther was…… Strong, but full of Grace.
I look forward to getting to know her. Sounds like quite an inspiration!
