    Esther was a purposeful and focused woman. She was privileged by divine favor to become a queen during her time and she did not disappoint God even at the expense of her own life. Thus,she was honored having a portion in the Bible we are reading today. We are where we are in order to fulfill God's purpose. Remember, you are already writing a book now.Will it edify like Esther?

    Ren; God is not willing for anyone to perish, and He has made every provision for ALL men everywhere to benefit from His Gift of reconciliation and salvation from sin through His Son Jesus Christ. But men have their part as well, to prove whether they are of the truth by hearing Jesus' voice, repenting of sin AND quitting them, and believing; and continuing steadfast unto the end. Read Jude 1:5
