Not all stories end like Esther…or Cinderella.
Sometimes when we do what is right – in the midst of a bad situation – things get worse.
That’s what today’s video is all about…

One final observation…
Esther was a woman of courage – she risked her life to save the lives of her people. But her courage goes further than just going to the king and asking for him to save her and her people.
Esther did this IN the presence of the guilty man who orchestrated all of this. She outed Haman –to his face! Wow! That takes strength.
It would have been easier for Esther to ask to be alone with the King and use some manipulative womanly ways to woo him. But Esther did not mince words. She spoke openly and boldly right in the presence of Haman.
May we have courage – no matter what the outcome – to face our fears right in the face.
To speak truth that sets people free.
To confront darkness with the light.
To trust God with our very lives. And not give in to the fear of man.
To be able to say the very words of Esther, “If I perish, I perish.”
Walk with the King,
