Stormie Omartan once said that she didn’t truly feel open to God even though she had let Him into her life. Then she realized that the problem was that she had only let Him into one section of her life. He wanted all of her and so she had to start opening the doors to other parts of her life. Finances. Family. Loss. Gain. Relationships. Work. Dreams. Each time she opened a door God would embody that part of her and then knock on the next door. What about us? Are there doors we are keeping closed to God? What are you afraid to let Him take control of in your life? What am I afraid to let Him take control of in mine? Don’t forget, not ever! God loves you! He wants you and wants to take care of you! It’s His choice, and He chose to create you. Don’t forget that.

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.
