echoes of Esther

"for such a time as this"
and what, Lord, does this mean?
I am in a transitory position
neither here nor there
still struggling to comprehend
the recent past
while simultaneously trying to plan
a too-quickly approaching future
so what position have I come to
that You would say
"for such a time as this"?
yet at every stage in my life
I have complained of being in-between
without solid knowledge of
where I am or where I'm going
but isn't that life?
I claim to travel a dark path
carrying a Flashlight that reveals
only just the next footfall
and my immediate surroundings
perhaps I should stop
to gaze around every so often
perhaps then I would know where I stood
that God should say
"for such a time as this"
