If you have followed my blog for a while, you know my fear of flying, and how difficult it can be for me to get on a plane most of the time. It really comes down to me not being in control. My life is ultimately in the hands of God, but in the pilot, [...]
I should have been walking in the confidence of His love after reflecting on His hesed love all week. But a perfect storm, left me walking off a plane, deeply knowing that if the plane had closed the doors with me on it, I would have been in a full-blown panic attack on the way [...]
