God has funny ways of talking sometimes.
I read through my Bible from front to back. I don’t have a reading plan where I bounce around. I can’t do that for some reason. Just doesn’t work for me. So I just go through it and pick it up where I am at on a given day.
The day after we found out the date when Clara was leaving our house, I picked up my Bible and it was time for me to read out of the Book of Esther. Really God…
Some of you may not know about Esther (great Veggie Tales movie about Esther, FYI). Esther was a Jew, who had been part of a group that had been kicked out of their homeland. They were conquered by another people and were living in a country not their own. She was living with her uncle, because her parents were gone.
The king of this country wanted to new Queen so he had young girls brought in to check out. Esther was one of them.
Why do I tell you all this? Picking up my Bible and seeing it was time to read Esther and knowing this story gave me some peace. God knows all about little girls living in difficult circumstances. Often, he uses these situations for His Glory. Like in the story of Esther. It really is a good story, finish reading it here; or go get the Veggie Tales movie. Either way, it would be worth your time.
