Chapter 2: Who is Esther?

Esther was:

A captive

An orphan

Beautiful: lovely in both form and features-her physical traits AND how she held herself-form

There for at least 4 years!

Patient!

full of favor from God-Hegai gave her 7 maids and the best room in the place!

(devout in her faith)

Obedient-to Mordecai, did not reveal her family background

Open to suggestions on how to improve-wore only what Hegai suggested, and it worked!

In good care: though her own parents were dead, she was obedient to the father God had provided her. He took care of her from childhood and walked, every day, back and forth to see how she was doing. 4 years!

Made queen-given a crown and a royal position

Honored by her king-even though he did not believe as she did, he honored her because of who she was

Given a great banquet and a holiday-it is likely that she appeared at the feast after the coronation, maybe receiving the praise of obedience where Vashti had taken the blot of disobedience

Humble-she gave credit to Mordecai

Still obedient to the father of her youth

Chapter 3: What we don’t want

Yes yes yes!

Guess who received some awesome prophecies tonight? Yep, the whole LG gang! We invited some strong women, April and Amy to help us prophecy over our members, and man were we on a roll. I had never conducted a prophecy night before, but I love how the Holy Spirit was with us for over 3 hours and we merely had to ask. I heard some great words about humility, my future in ministering to women, and all kinds of crazy stuff. Praise God! I am super excited! I love Him! Do you? Thank you to Amy Middleton for coming and sharing her faith with us. Thank you to Ross Middleton for sharing his wife with us. And thank you to the Middleton boys, for donating their mother for a few hours. Thank you April Lupo for letting God use you! I love you all!

later family!

LG-Joy Part 2

So…Life Group. Um, I guess it went well. I feel like I talked way too much, but eh, I’m still learning. We had 4 girls and then the 3 leaders, the usual crowd. It was a semi-difficult lesson to teach. I could see that understanding the difference between happiness and joy was hard to grasp. I also feel like I dominated the lesson, which is fine, but I’ll try to work out double-teaming better with my other leader(one of them is leaving). So yeah, working on it. Haha. Perfect.

Anyway, I think it went okay. I hope they got it. We dabbed into spiritual warfare and salvation and identity. All in all, a fun-filled night. Pointers welcome.

I love my LG.

I enjoy leading. I like having answers. And my group of girls, though inconsistent, are very fun when they pay attention. Tonight the lesson is Joy. Pray that God speaks through me and guides me. I’m excited for it. Give you guys an update later! Oh, and my roommate has a headache, pray for her to feel better. Okay, bye for real now.
