“For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father’s house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” Mordecai spoke these words to Esther after asking her to get the king to do something about the decree issued to murder all the children of Israel in the land. I keep hearing these words each time I look at the images of the mothers in Nigeria crying and begging an unstable government that is apparently incapable of protecting their people from terrorist to bring their daughters back.
Approximately two weeks ago over two hundred Nigerian girls were kidnapped from their school. Reports have been made that some of the girls have already been sold into marriage or sexual slavery. Generally, I steer clear of politics and I have never undertaken any type of project related to anything that looked political, but this isn’t political this heart breaking. I can’t stand by and watch this happen and I hope that you feel the same. While our Secretary of State John Kerry has stated that the U. S. will help support the Nigerian government in getting these girls back home; he has not explained how and when this aid would come. They can’t wait.
I don’t know Kerry and I don’t Obama. Even if I did I doubt that I could have reached them fast enough to help these girls, however I know the King of Kings and Lord of Lords and I know that He is concerned about whatever concerns me. I believe that we have been prepared for a time such as this.
