Worshiping The Source Of My Strength!

This picture was taken on my first flight over.  My flight attendant loved that I was a first time flyer (as an adult) and made a big deal about it.  Believe it or not it actually helped to know that others were watching and I wanted to honor the Lord.  I found as I stepped out in my actions God began changing my heart. 

I love you, Lord; you are my strength.  You are my rock, my fortress, and my Savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection.  He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety.  I called on the Lord, who is worthy of praise, and he saved me from my enemies. ~ Psalm 18:1-3

Boarding my flight home out of Memphis

As I sit this morning sipping my coffee and lingering with my Lord, I am overcome with such a deep gratefulness for His faithfulness.  

This past week as I stepped out in faith (though there was still fear in the beginning) and flew to Raleigh, NC, God did a work in my life that can only be supernatural.
Two of my three flights were on these tiny airplanes.  They held 28 passengers and we felt every air pocket, every bit of turbulence.

  After years of living with a hidden fear of flying God not only removed the stark terror, he faithfully replaced it with a love!  On the way home I sat in such contented peace knowing that no matter what my life is in His hands.  There was such surrender that it wasn't even a peace about saving my life but surrendering it to Him no matter what. 

Oh, to live like this on a daily basis.....

He is God and He is GOOD!



  1. Mary - this post had so much more meaning because you had shared your story of flying with us. I am glad you had a good journey home. I had one of those "puddle jumper" airplanes on the way home and I was sitting with a college student. She was nervous and we talked all the way home. It was good to be reminded of our smallness and God's power as we hit each air pocket. He is faithful. - I am glad that your expierence strengthened you! - Maricel from Oregon

  2. Maricel, I would LOVE to read and follow your blog. Will you post it? I prayed for you yesterday as you traveled home. I hope you are rested and reconnected! XOXO Mary
