“This time in my life taught me there are many things I can’t control but I have a Father who will hold me and love me through this life.”
I was born in Calgary and raised in a family that loved Jesus. Wee College to Youth Group, I loved every bit about being in church, where I would be able to learn about Jesus and worship. I gave my life to Jesus at the alter of my home church when I was 7.
I struggled with fear in my childhood. My Dad had his first heart attack when I was six years old, then over the years he had two open-heart surgeries and a heart transplant. It was terrifying as a child to think all the time that your father could die and there was nothing you could do about it. But God was with me. He is so very faithful. Some times I would just say His name over and over till I had peace. He always brought peace. As I’ve grown up, I have never doubted how much He loves me and how much I need Him. This time in my life taught me there are I can’t control but I have a Father who will hold me and love me through this life. He wrapped my fear in His love and taught me to trust. He is a great Father.
