Advent: Day 18 – Enter the gate

She walks in because even though it is comfortable there in the palace and inside the gate it’s secure and at ease, she was not as safe and neither were her family. Esther knew that the bad man wanted them all dead and she was born for such a time as this. God gives us gifts and position not to set in a comfortable place all proud with what we have received inside the gate, but rather, He sets us in such places with such things to touch those around us for Him. To reach those who are outside the gate. Why? Because we have what another lacks …..So we GIVE! He gave His life so that we might live!

ADVENT – the dying so that in dying life may live abundantly

Special gifts -things giving to me. I have a way with words. I like too write out, share, help, sing, listen, encourage those outside the gate. Those in need of a little encouragement. I call out: “you can do it!”

Christ is their HOPE

He is here




….would you but ask?

I see what they have that maybe they cant yet see

let me share to awaken that sight

and I love the surprise face

of understanding what is in themselves

just yielding to Him

when He calls to come join Him

in serving and loving

equipping the saints

Journal this or at least ponder and lift your thoughts to God:

What are your special gifts? How might God want to use you to reach those outside the gate?

All is grace,


Thank you for sharing your thoughts with me.
