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?
