Usually Seasoned Fiction is a post about Milly and Paper Wrappers. But let’s pause a moment and do something a bit different. I don’t generally go for poetry. It’s not what I find is my strength. That said, I ran across this poem I wrote in 2009 after reading the book of Esther and book about the book of Esther. I thought I’d share it today.

“For Such a Time as This”
For such a time as this
God has put me in this place.
I didn’t know when I awoke
That I could be His tool of grace.
I am just an ordinary me
Nothing special about I
But the fragrance of God
Has poured from my life
For such a time as this.

The moments of my life
Are routine and mundane
I am only one who struggles through this world
My star shines for Him
To risk without gain
To know that all I do is
For such a time as this.

My Lord has permeated each day.
Each breath and each step
Though ordinary it seemed
His plan was so great
Though I could not see
As He placed me His stage
For such a time as this.
