I live alone with my preschooler in an off-grid cabin on a remote island off the coast of British Columbia.

Prayer is like a window
With the passing of the years I have learned that the winter season gives the sacred space of quietness. I appreciate this time to nurture the silence within me and prayer is an important part of that process. Recently I felt the specific need to pray for the salvation for my partner who left me when I was five weeks pregnant. Initially I resisted but than I followed the prompting and within two weeks a wondrous change came over me. The bitterness and anger I have unknowingly carried toward's him left me and when it did I realized I had forgiven him. In hindsight I realize the bitterness was telling me I needed to continue to accept the love of Jesus within. I praise God for reaching out to me and healing me! The closer I walk to Him the more he creates in me something beyond self - and gives me more than what I could ever do on my own - Him. May you too continue to grow in love.
