Too often it is easiest to focus on the negative things in life. We lose focus of what is most important, and we begin to focus on our circumstances. Fear can have some long-reaching consequences, as we will learn from this week’s story.
Have you ever walked into a thick fog? From the outside it looks so dense! Once you step foot inside the fog, you realize it is not what it seemed from the outside. Fear is similar. When we dissect our fears, we will discover that there is no substance to it.
The story of Esther is a the story of a young woman with great courage. She was brought up from obscurity and put into a place of influence. She faced many fearful events in her life, but she was able to face her fears and use her divine appointment for great good.

There is a great temptation, because it is so easy, to design our lives so we have as little contact as possible with those who do not share our faith.

The Apostles Creed begins with believing in God the creator. God has made Himself plain in creation and sometimes we are too close to creation to recognize the creator.
Humanity has a desperate need for meaning. Jesus offers us that meaning and a life abundant.
