Patience…Everything is in His Hands

Sunday, January 26th, 2014

Message by Rev. Don Gardner, Lead Pastor

As we look at Esther’s story, patience is in His hands, which is basically saying don’t worry so much, take it Easy. God is in Charge. Esther was a woman who’s very intelligent, bold, courageous, was willing to make quick and right decisions, was very dependent on God for leadership, and she found advice from Mordecai. When it comes to things and events going around you, what you learn is very much important in life.
