Spiritual Sundays




I am sharing from an She Seeks Devotional today. I pray it blesses you as it did me! To join with Spiritual Sundays go here

{faithfulness flies in}
thoughts from a girl who experienced it
Mascara streamed down my face. I was an emotional wreck. Sitting at the gate I watched the plane pull out onto the tarmac. Earbuds in, I sobbed. The dam holding back my tears exploded.

Clearly, my emotions got the best of me. I watched a man I had just met board a plane and fly home to his family, as I was stranded overnight in the airport. My connection flight home had left right as my current flight landed, causing me to become stranded nine hours in the airport, waiting for my new flight.

I sat down in the food court to eat some dinner. Prayers spiraling up to heaven, my burdened heart unloaded. I needed to see God in this moment, especially since I am afraid of being in unknown places. Panic seized me. What if I was not safe?

A pilot sat down in the booth next to me. Eating his dinner he struck up a conversation. Since the news of my dreaded sleepover had not quite set in I was still numb to the situation. I shared with him my circumstances and asked him how long he had been flying. The conversation continued and there it was: a God moment.

The pilot told me that I was safe in the airport. He pointed out the security team and proceeded to talk about where I could sleep to remain safe, giving voice to exactly what I had prayed about! He continued to touch on things I had sent up to God in my prayers, out of fear. It was like this man could see my heart. We continued talking and I shared my heart for ministry. And then he told me he had been a pastor for ten years.

Smiling, the pilot got up to leave and said to me "I never sit in the food court. In my years of flying I have always eaten at the gate. We must have had a divine appointment. Rest tonight in the reality that you are safe with Him."

Jeremiah 29:13-14 says, "Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all of your heart."

God is in the business of listening to and answering prayers, sometimes in ways that we least expect it. In a moment when I felt abandoned and alone, He was there.

Have you ever had a moment where you clearly saw God's faithfulness? Can you recall a time when He gave you "a God moment" to sustain you? I love that he is waiting. He is waiting to hear from you. I am convinced he loves to reveal Himself to His children. Wait and see.

Psalm 57:9-11
I will praise you, Lord, among the nations;
I will sing of you among the peoples.
For great is your love, reaching to the heavens;
your faithfulness reaches to the skies.

Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;
let your glory be over all the earth.

Dear Loren, What an amazing post; a lesson that we all need to remember. The story of a Divine Appointment gave me chills; I wonder how often God works this way and we don't see it.
Girl, I can't wait for you to meet your new grandson-will be praying about a safe and timely entrance. You are the best Noni around I'm sure. What a delight the grands are. I know if we lived near each other we'd hang out and have so much fun.
Have a joy filled weekend.
Love, Noreen

Great post. I have had so many of those moments through the years when I have "seen" God's faithfulness. In fact, if I spend much time thinking about it I get all emotional. God is good!

Wow, Loren, what a wonderful encouraging post. God is amazing.
Just curious. Have you had trouble opening my Charlotte's Weblog blog? Or is it just the AZ one?
Blessings to you my friend.

Hi Loren,

Thank you for sharing such a powerful devotional with us! GOD is so faithful!

I pray that you are feeling better DAILY. Sending my love and prayers!!!

Charlotte

Good morning dear Loren,
I'm glad you were able to open my blog this time. My goodness. That seems strange that the www. would make the difference. I'm looking at your address at the top now and there is no www. Wonder why that made the difference. Just a computer fluke I guess. Anyway, I think it is a miracle you were able to see that so easily this time.
Have a wonderful day.

I had a lot of those "divine moments" countless times...If we learn to trust in His faithfulness, any fear just will not have any room in our hearts and mind. That's a beautiful story. Have a great week ahead sister and praying all is well and you're healing faster, recovering your strength with your shoulders!!! God bless and love you in Christ.
