Today was an on the feet all day, day. It was a good day and lots of fun, but only part way through my feet hurt…a lot. My task was not complete but my body didn’t want to continue. Now what? I chose to take some time to sit, not much time, just enough so that I could feel my soles again and continue on.
How often do we feel like our spiritual feet simply can’t go on? We push and push, trying to keep moving forward but find it is too much. Then we pray and ask God what to do and He directs is to His word:
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
God calls us to rest and regain our strength through Him so we can get back up and keep moving forward. He is good to us and cares for us, don’t forget that. God is not a task master, He is our king. He gives us the strength to go on. Count on Him, trust in Him.

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.
