So many days I find myself saying “this is crazy! I shouldn’t be okay!”
Yet, I am. The world is literally falling apart, I can’t see past my own nose when it comes to the future and yet…I’m okay. Why?
Answer, Jesus. Jesus is the own reason I am okay, without Him I’m sure I would be depressed and imploding like so many around the world are somehow, I don’t know, but somehow Jesus makes it feel like things will be okay. Isn’t that what Paul said?
(For Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses for when I am weak I am strong) <paraphrased from 2 Corinthians 12:10
Even from prison Paul said that he was okay because of Jesus. Even when we aren’t okay, we are with Jesus.

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.

Yes, Jesus will never leave us nor forsake us. He is with us in the midst of every storm. All His promises are yes and amen! Good word.
