Queen Esther is called “for such a time as this” – a time that is difficult and uncertain. We all need this reminder: Each day we have breath in our being (no matter how hard that day may be), we have been called for such a time as this.
You, beloved, have each been called in your skin, gender, status and context. You have been called, not as Esther, not as me, but as you. You are the person God has created to live and move and have your being, in no other time but now. This time is holy simply because it holds your every living and holy breath. So here we are…called for such a time as this.
I pray we discover and realize that we and this time are unapologetically holy.
