I may be afraid of my situation, But I am more afraid of losing heart in all this.-N
Fear. What an odd word. It’s one syllable, four letters, and has several contexts that it can be put into. Even though ‘fear’ is such a small word, it is a huge emotion. I once heard pain be refered to as the obliterator, because it takes away everything else. Pain and fear have the same result, they take away everything else. Fear clogs your senses, takes over your heart and mind until you have nothing else to give. Fear causes us to lose heart. Once we lose heart everything else slips along with it, our passion, our courage, our joy. Jesus said, “Take heart, for I have overcome the world.” Because He knew that human hearts were weak and we could easily lose ourselves in our fear. But Jesus has overcome fear and doubt, and when our hearts are in Him, we cannot lose hope.

I am a young woman who grew up in British Columbia. In BC was all I ever wanted; I had my poodle (Max) and all my friends, Saturdays at the Vancouver Aquarium and Sunday afternoons at one of my favorite beaches it was paradise. But God had a different plan for my life and my dad's job landed us in Alberta and now where I remain, in small town Souris Manitoba. The transitions from paradise to prairie were difficult and I will admit that now 10 years later I still refer to home as Abbotsford BC. Through this crazy pathway trek across Canada I have had one true constant, God; and though none of it was easy, everything that has happened in my life has formed in me a true lasting friendship with the one I call Immanuel. Because no matter how far from home we are God is with us, and thanks to God I have found an almost completely over looked beauty in Manitoba. If you open your eyes you will see that God has planted wondrous things everywhere you go.
