Lent devotional 17
There will always be people who want to stomp on your light and squash it out. But remember that -like a glow stick- when stepped on, part of your light will stick to them as they walk away. Even when they hurt you, because your light scares their darkness, God can use that moment to stick a bit of Himself to them so that eventually they find Him and their darkness fades with His glory. Don’t be afraid of the negative moments that you have with people, because if you show yourself a true believer and respond by turning the other cheek it will scare the negative people off, because they don’t know how to deal with that. And you never know what God has done through you in that moment.

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.
