Just when we wonder, “Where is God in our lives or our families or our communities,” Esther reminds us that God never abandons us. He is faithful. If you have never read or studied Esther before, now is a good time to start. Esther is about trusting in God, interceding in prayer and receiving strength to stand firm amid Life’s challenges. It is about gentle leadership and discernment from God in difficult times. Most importantly, Esther is a dramatic story of how God can bring reversals in circumstances for you and your family – that’s turnarounds in situations and relationships. In Esther’s case, fifteen reversals in circumstances and relationships gave joy and consolation to God’s people resulting in the annual Jewish celebration of the Feast of Purim. Esther is a book of faith, hope and joy! Click here for Esther Podcast #1. Scroll down for the Bookmarks and Podcasts.
