Thoughts on Esther

It’s Friday which means it’s time for our weekly roundup of thoughts about “Esther: It’s Tough Being A Woman” except this week I’m going to let y’all go first and share your thoughts in the comments and I’ll chime in later.
Doesn’t that sound good?
So, here’s the real story. I’m in Houston right now after attending a fun event with some blogging friends and I forgot to bring my “Esther” book with me.
And you know what would help me talk about what I learned from “Esther” this week?
Having my workbook.
I’ll be back this afternoon with my thoughts on the week. I know I loved it, that much is certain.
How about y’all? What did you think of the first week of homework?

    Well, I just watched the Week 3 session with our group last night and am truly loving every single minute of. Although last night was a huge wake up call for many of us.
    I can’t wait to get to know Esther better.

    We’re in week 1 and I am so glad that Beth warned us against bashing the men. By the time I was on Day 3, I had had it with Motor Mouth Memucan! But of course there’s always a personal lesson if with look for it. My take away lesson was centered around King Xerxes rallying his troops and confidants to get some advice about Queen Vashti. How often do I do the same thing? When something happens or is said that I don’t like, do I “rally my troops” and make a bigger deal of it than is necessary? Or do I cry out to God, ask for His help? Here’s to working on making the latter my first response.

    The last paragraph of Day 1, just spoke to my heart about God using all things in my life and the charge to “don’t just wait and see. Live and see.” I found my prayer at the end of the day being, “Lord, Let it be me, one to live and see.” And then in the video when Beth talked about not amputating our history from our destiny – the Lord is just speaking to me!
    My fourteen year old daughter is taking the study with me, and she has already read the entire book! Yes, we just finished week one. She is also quite impressed with Mrs. Beth’s high heels – I had not even noticed them!
