Hi friends! We’re currently on a plane on our way to Utah for a convention! I just wanted to share some of my thoughts on traveling & trusting God through every little thing.
I always love flying, but once I get on the plane, I’m kind of a mess. Don’t get me wrong, the view from way up here is absolutely gorgeous, but the ride up is not my favorite part. We’re going through a little rough patch as I write this now, and it made me think of a few things.
Sometimes, when we’re in a great place, without any “bumps” in life, we don’t fully praise God for what He’s done & we take for granted a lot. The second the bumpiness happens though, we panic and try to take control even though it only stresses us out and doesn’t help with anything. We go to God and ask Him to make things easier and expect Him to do so even though it seems the only time we praise Him is when we go through trials. It’s important to be praising God in the ups and downs in life. It’s so comforting though to know that God is in control during the smooth and the bumpy. Life is hard and often the best places require some hard climbs. Jesus is right here, doing life with us. I’m listening to a song called “I am Yours”, and it’s probably one of my favorite songs to listen to while traveling. There’s a verse that says,
I see Your fingerprints, the work of Your hands. It’s all in Your hands. I see the evidence, leaving nothing to chance The world’s in Your hands, so I rest in Your promises. Now I am sure of this, I’m Yours. So let the waters rise, I will stand as the oceans roar. Let the earth shake beneath me, let the mountains fall. You are God over the storm and I am Yours. Even the thunder and the wind obey at the command of my Father. I set my feet upon Your mighty name, so let the rain fall harder.
If there’s one thing Gods been teaching me, it’s how faithful He is. I’m definitely not as faithful as I should be sometimes, and it amazes me that God is still so faithful despite my unfaithfulness. I’m still trying to learn everything I write about because I definitely don’t have all this down yet. It’s a learning process, but I do know that trusting God in the big & little things of life is so much easier than trying to do things on my own.
Thanks for reading & I hope y’all have a great week!
