Enjoying Time with Esther

I've just recently started Beth Moore's Esther bible study. I am really enjoying it!

We've been talking about "beauty".... and the difference between surface beauty and inner beauty. And how hard it is to be a women in a world that is obsessed with outward appearances.

Beth made a comment tonight on the video about a card that she keeps on her desk at all times, with 3 verses on it: (she has taken the liberty to personalize them, and so have I....)

They are:

Colossians 2:10 - I am complete in Christ

Song of Solomon 7:10 - I am my beloved's and his desire is for me

Psalms 90:17 - Let the beauty of the Lord be upon me. (KJV)

Ironically enough - the Psalms 90:17 is also the verse our deaf ministry has declared for ourselves:

"May the favor of the Lord be upon us. Establish the work of our hands, yes, establish the work of our hands" (ESV)

I am grateful for Beth's reminders, and grateful for the richness of the book of Esther.
