You are mine on earth
You are mine hands
You are mine legs
Your voice is my voice
I cannot be there without you for some seasons
Give me your all to use
And, I will reward you eternally in time and eternity
15 Then Esther sent this reply to Mordecai: 16 “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.”
We are where we are because we made efforts. However, behind and before these efforts is the power of God.
Things do not happen without reasons behind them. Like Esther, God has placed us where we are to help someone or others. If we fail to do this, we will miss great glories in eternity.
We Africans, especially those of us who happen to land into great positions need to become greatly aware of this truth. Being aware of this will make us to become purpose fulfilment focused instead of money focused which makes us end up stealing monies belonging to the state and people.
Life is very short, but one cannot see the shortness of it till the times available to us are gone. We can make lives better and the best time must be now as Esther did.
