For such a time as this...

That is one of my favorite phrases from the Bible. I use it frequently when I see God's hand in something and how He works stuff out, etc. Well, of course, that is a central phrase in the book of Esther.

We [various blog buddies and I] have been talking about getting more into the Word this year. I LOVE God's Word. It excites me!!! BUT, do I read and study and meditate on it like I should? Well...[ahem] not always. I have lately really been craving MEAT from the Word. Last fall, our ladies group did a Beth Moore Bible study on the Psalms of Degrees and it was AWESOME.
Do you want to hear Moore? We just started the study on Esther today. Yes, it is a Beth Moore study, hence the play on words above. I go to a big church and the Bible study is given 3 times a day 6am, 9am, and 7pm. I usually go to the 7pm one, but tonight I have to be somewhere else so I went to the 6am one. This study is going to be a great one too! We started by getting the whole ladies group together last Friday evening to watch 'One Night With the King', which is a movie based on the book of Esther. So, I am EXCITED about this study and diving deeper into the treasures of God's Word.
Course, I have the Veggie Tales version of Esther where she is a green onion and Mordechai is played by Pa Grape. Yes, I AM that hopeless...
Where has God been leading you in His Word?


  1. I would love to join you in the Esther study! Too bad you live so stinkin' far away!

    I have been getting huge things out of tidbits lately...a verse here and a verse there - maybe just one verse --but the Holy Spirit uses that one verse to speak VOLUMES to my heart!

  2. I haven't done a beth moore study, but have read her books. I am doing the bible in a year, and if I miss a day trying to catch up sometimes means i just read it instead of absorbing it.
