Hadassah

Esther 4:14
"if you don't do the job you were meant to do, some one else will do it. but you will waste away. and who knows? you just may be in the position you are in by design"

that's my paraphrase...btw.

esther is an interesting book. it is a (true) story about a young, common (and jewish) lady who, thru the whim of the king, marries him and becomes queen.

meanwhile, a governmental authority named haman *hisssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss* plots against the jews...to comepletely destroy them.

it is in this context that hadassah's (esther's jewish name) uncle gives her this warning. you should read the rest of the story...it's quite good.

but in the meantime, please know that God (who knows all things) has a plan for your life...to do His work...it may not be as dramatic as esther's...but He still wants you to do it. He can (and will) raise up someone else...the hamans *hissssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss* of the world cannot win...but you will lose out.

and that would be a shame.
