FIGHTING TO KNOW JESUS IS RIDDLED WITH JOY AND DIFFICULTY, AS IS MOTHERHOOD. IF WE EMBRACE THIS, IT WILL BRING US TO A PLACE THAT ONLY GOD CAN BRING REST TO AND SUSTAIN US IN. THIS IS WHERE DEEP JOY IS FOUND.

This is your moment...

This is your moment...

Your life is comprised of thousands of little moments that, when combined together, create a tapestry of individuality and astonishing beauty like no other. 

The problem is we often get tangled in the threads of comparison to other people's lives...

which leaves us wishing our design was more...

Most of us can see all the giftings and talent in someone else but honestly believe we have been skipped over by God in that department. 

The ache within us for purpose and significance still remains...

Esther was leading a normal and comfortable life as queen when God opened her eyes to see the peril her people were in. When I read these words that her uncle spoke to her... 

Something resounds within my soul...

“If you keep quiet at a time like this, deliverance and relief for the Jews will arise from some other place, but you and your relatives will die. Who knows if perhaps you were made queen for just such a time as this?””
‭‭Esther‬ ‭4:14‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Perhaps you were hand plucked by the God of creation to be in the...

family 

neighborhood

city

church

And place in time that you are...

Because He has made you...

 

...to rise up in "such a time as this."

 

The tapestry God has woven you into through each and every life situation is for a purpose...

 

This is your moment.

 

You are in the exact place God wants you.

There are people who need you to move beyond your comfort so they can experience the freedom God offers.

Your past is not a combination of mess and regret but a billboard that God is real and invades the details of our disaster to bring order and hope to it.

If you are willing to see the peril that's surrounding you...

Who knows if perhaps you were placed purposely to be part of the rescuing of those in your life circle...

 

For such a time as this.

One God, One people, One Word.

One God, One people, One Word.

You could have done more... You should have been better...
