Some thoughts for today.

"Our difficulties, our trials, and our worries about tomorrow all vanish when we look to God" [My utmost for His Highest, italics added]

"Wake up yourself and look to God. Build your hope on Him. No matter how many things seem to be pressing in on you, be determined to push them aside and look to Him." [My utmost for His Highest, italics added]

So true. But that is so hard to do and remember when you have a huge problem looking you in the face.


[From a study note in my Bible on Esther] "Among Jews, women were expected to be quiet, to serve in the home, and to stay on the fringe or religious and political life. But Esther was a Jewish woman who broke through the cultural norms, stepping outside her expected role to risk her life to help God's people. Whatever your place in life, God can use you. Be open, available, and ready because God may use you to do what others are afraid even to consider." [italics added]

Hmmmmm...... something else to think about.

"In the book of Esther, we clearly see God at work in the lives of individuals and in the affairs of a nation. Even when it looks as if the world is in the hands of evil people, God is still in control, protecting those who are His. Although we may not understand everything happening around us, we must trust in God's protection and retain ourintefrity by doing what we know is right...... No matter how hopeless our condition, or how much we would like to give up, we need not despair. God in is control of our world" [Study note on Esther, Italics added]

Well that finishes up Esther. I am not sure what book I am going to study next. I will have to think about it.


Yesterday I started reading a book called "Every life is a plan of God" by J.Oswald Sanders. I haven't gotten to far in but it looks like it will be a good book.

Anyways, that is all I have to say for now.

God Bless!
