In collaboration with #CanadaHope150, many people are sharing their stories of hope. A brief summary of my life (an interview with Les Moore) will be aired tonight, June 22, on AM700 The Light (CJLI) at 6:45 p.m. For those who aren't local, listen online at http://cjli.streamon.fm/. If you miss it tonight, it will be posted on the www.hope150.ca website in a few days.
This is not really about me, but rather it is the story of how God has carried me throughout life, in joy, in despair and everything in between. We are transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit in us. Sharing these stories with each other helps us see all the ways God heals, encourages, strengthens and leads. As followers of Jesus, we are not exempt from anything. What matters is our response to what happens and learning to trust God when we walk through trauma or through the valley of the shadow of death, or when we are in despair. There is always hope. The Lord is holding you even if you can't sense it. Hold on.
"Lord, to whom would we go? Only you have the words of eternal life."
-the Apostle Peter (John 6:68)
