What is my purpose?

Okay so I must admit I am still trying to figure it out. I will say though, it is becoming more clear everyday. The past few weeks we have been getting ready for a program at our church and I have been studying Esther. You may know Esther as King Xerex Wife, Mordecai's cousin and many would consider her a hero among the Jews. During my studies I came across this verse: " If you keep quiet at at time like this, deliverance and relief for the Jews will arise from some other place, but you and your realtives die. Who knows if perhaps you were made queen for such a time as this?" Esther 4:14. Wow! What this verse is saying is, maybe Queen Esther was put in this place by God for a reason. This was her purpose, to save the Jews from death, to use her power and position to save her people. She risked her life for others and obeyed the Lord and His plan for her.

This really got me thinking. What is my purpose? Why am I here and in this place I am in now? What is it that God wants me to do? I'm sure many of you have these questions and just like Esther had, I have a little fear to go forth and well prosper. Lately I have been wondering why am I in these certain places? Why do I  have the job I have, the friends I have, the chruch I am in. Even though I don't know what eactly it is I am supposed to do or be (yet), I do know that I am in these places for a reason. It's up to me to now do my part. Diligently seeking God through prayer and reading His word. Yup I will admit it, I haven't been doing that every day like I should, but my eyes have been so open lately that I have a thirst for God. I want to seek him and please him. I want to live this life he has given me according to his plan. One of these days he will show me what it is I am here for and I can't wait. Until then, I will serve him and follow through with all that I set out to do.

" For such a time as this , isn't it much too great a risk. I've never flown from the edge of a cliff, never walked on the water. But If I turn away, how will I know what I have missed. Have a I waited all of my life for such a time as this. Somtimes the thrill of soaring has to begin with the fear of falling"

  1. Tia, faith that surpasses all understanding is the theme of my life these days. In the midst of a ton of unknowns and walking through the desert I realize that my life is always going to be changing and uncertain and full of scary, overwhelming moments, BUT, I find such great Peace (that passes all understanding) when I believe Gods promises for me. "I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future." We have this mighty, wild, loving God who has our best in mind and who never fails. I love Ester's obedience and faith to follow through amidst crazy circumstances. You are amazing Tia, for such a times as this. xo
