"For Such A Time As This"

Life has been moving at full speed and I do mean full speed. I took a position on staff at our church as the Women's Ministry Director. I am having the time of my life. It is a wonderful thing to be right in the center of God's will doing what I love.  I feel like God has been preparing me all of my life for such a time as this....serving others, encouraging others and getting the opportunity to pour my life out for others. I am so very humbled that God would let me be a part of so many amazing women's lives. 

I think of Esther. She had endured hard times. She had lost both of her parents and lived with a cousin, whom she loved. She was paraded before a King for the purpose of him choosing a bride. I wonder what his qualifications were. Was she pretty enough, smart enough..... just enough. Then to be chosen to be his bride. Then to learn there was a wicked man who wanted to kill her and her people. Esther had her share of hard days...... yet the Bible tells us she was right where God wanted her to be "for such a time as this."  

Esther 4:14

14 For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father's house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?

What is God calling you do today .... "for such a time as this?" Maybe it is raising young children..... a long list of to-dos. Like cleaning toilets and mountains of laundry and sticky floors. Maybe you are teaching in a classroom or homeschooling your children. Maybe it is facing an illness or walking along someone who is fighting. Maybe it is serving in the ministry or teaching Sunday School. We all have our assignments given to us by God. I want to encourage you today that no matter how big or small the assignment, you are where you are because God has placed you there "for such a time as this."

Esther did not allow herself a pity party. She stood with courage and grace and obeyed God. She saved an entire nation. You never know just what God has in store for your life right now, right where you are...... "for such a time as this."
