For Such a Time

One of my favorite books in the bible is Esther.  I relate to her because of the powerful question that we all have to answer:  were you born for such a time as this?  I also found solace in how she went through a long preparation period before she found her king.  It was a year in waiting, a year of preparation, a year of saying the right things.  That is how I read it.

Recently, without knowing my affinity for the story, someone mistakenly called me Esther. In that moment I realized that just like animal encounters can guide you, so too can other elements that are attracted to you:  like names and stories.

What or who has been attracted to you lately?  What lessons did you learn?
