Right Place, Right Time, Right Purpose

“Go, gather together all the Jews who are in Susa, and fast for me. Do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my attendants will fast as you do. When this is done, I will go to the king, even though it is against the law. And if I perish, I perish.” -Esther 4:16 😳

So powerful. When opportunity meets position and purpose, God’s people can do amazing things.

Sunday Notes from @thomasroad

A couple of things – I’ve drawn Esther before but she looks totally different than I drew her here. I’m not a character designer but I’m wondering if I should try to keep the drawings of the characters consistent across my page or switch it up? Kinda like how Wonder Woman can be drawn by many different artists but you can still tell it’s Wonder Woman. I’d love your feedback on this! 🙌

Also – I included my live notes that I took at the building. You can see how things can change drastically when I take a little time to reflect on my notes. In this case, I felt the need to highlight Esther way more than I originally did. 

God bless you all!

Esther

“I will go to the king even if it is against the law. If I perish, I perish.”

My series on unsung biblical heroes has morphed into my series on the 7 biblical prophetesses! Today is Esther, the beloved queen who saved the Jewish people from total annihilation. Having read this book with different eyes – the bravery and tenacity of both Esther and Mordecai is astounding as the odds were totally against them and the consequences dire. With the only the promises of God; Esther was able to not only save her people but allow them to fight against their enemies who hated them. The description of the Jewish victories is intense; and reading between the lines it sounds like it was quite the series of battles. ⚔️
