Today I was watering my grandpa’s flowers and when I came around the corner, in the far back away from every other plant, I saw this small and dehydrated pansy. Obviously I poured some water on it and watched it spring back up. I felt happy as I watched the flower regain it’s zuberince. Then I realized how like us that flower is, we have dry moments, sometimes even dry years, where we feel like we are separated from everyone else and that nobody notices Us and nobody cares. Suddenly, just as we feel we are about to fade away, God delivers us from our drought and pours his healing water on us, and we are able to stand once again. Jesus never looks away, and he always sees us, Even in our times of testing in trial, Even in our times of dryness, he is taking care of us and he never lets us fade away. Right when we don’t think we can take anymore he pours his healing water on us and we come alive again. Don’t let your times of drought make you feel like the father doesn’t care or isn’t watching, sometimes we have to become dry so we can grow in him. Even if you can’t feel his presence today, he is watching and caring for you, and loves you.

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. View all posts by carriedinthecross
