Day Seven – For this purpose

Today’s Scripture: Exodus 9:16 Someone said that the two most important days in a person’s life are the day he was born and the day he discovers why.

Day One – Born at the right time

Today’s Scripture: Esther 4:1-17; Psalm 139:16 Have you ever wondered if you were born at the right time? Born too early—before your time? Or born too late?
