Rose asked me about the inspiration for the Words that I gave away and here goes!!
"You were born for such a time as this" is from the book of Esther in the Bible. She was a Jewish girl that was made Queen, (The king did not know that she was a Jew). She found out there was a plot by Haman to have the Jews killed. So she asked for a 3 day fast from her people and after 3 days she made a plea to the King to save her people and tell about the evil plan from Haman, and in the end the gallows that Haman had built to kill the Jews was used on him and his family. She saved her people by fasting and prayer.
Her uncle said to her in Esther 4:14 that "For if you remain silent at this time, liberation and rescue will arise for the Jews from another place, and you and your father’s house will perish [since you did not help when you had the chance]. And who knows whether you have attained royalty for such a time as this [and for this very purpose]?”
So we also have been born for Such A Time As This......we all have a Special purpose and a meaningful life to live, with PURPOSE!!
and on to the next Verse:
"It is well with my soul" It is a song that I LOVE. I have attached a video from the Mormon Tabernacle Choir that narrates and sings about the life of the Spafford Family and Horacio's making of this song.
Please listen to the whole thing...it is a moving story and one of great Faith
