Ester....A Beth Moore Study


I recently enrolled in the Ester....Beth Moore Bible Study at my church. I am a member of Sherwood Oaks Christian Church in Bloomington Indiana. This is one of the most enlightening studies I have taken. Ester, I have learned is a remarkable, head strong woman, similar to a lot of women I know today. She had trials in her life that seem too great for me to bear. Raised by her cousin, I can only imagine all that she learned. As each chapter unfolds in this remarkable New Testament story, I can only know that as bold as Ester was, her story is one of great humility & discernment. She 'softly' moved about the kingdom, trusting God to accomplish His purpose in and through her, which is exactly what He did. Oh God, make me like Ester. A beautiful scripture verse that I learned this week is Colossians 2:10...You are complete in Him. I hope that this gives you a sense of fulfillment today. Nothing can make me happier knowing that I am complete in Him. Blessings for a wonderful evening.

Your post reminded me of my grandma. Her name is Ester and she is turning 93 in April. She too is strong and loved by so many. She has 4 children 15 grandchildren and 20 great grandchildren!

It is a fabulous study, isn't it...I love the book of Esther. Always have since the first time I read it...Can't wait to get back into the study if we would just quit having 2 hour delays that cancel it....
