Runway or Running Away

Esther: Shining In A Dark Place

Esther: Shining In A Dark Place

    Esther: Shining In A Dark Place     Esther’s name means star. Esther 2: 7 describes her as “..lovely in form and features ..” She is beautiful, but most likely all the girls brought to the palace are beautiful.  What makes Esther different? Why does she stand out from the others?

He does promise  “There has no temptation taken you but that which is common to man but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above what you are able but will make a way of escape so that you can bear …

A Passionate Trust

A Passionate Trust

“I waited patiently for the Lord; He turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear and put their trust in the Lord.” Psalm 40:1–3 (emphasis added) Have you ever been so unsure of your next step that all you know to do is hang on to Jesus and desperately hope that you …
