I am sitting at the airport in Dallas eating an “Art Vandelay” (yes I wrote that correctly) while waiting on my flight, which was supposed to leave at 12:25 and is now backed up till 3:40. Missed seeing my husband last night because his flight was also backed up due to bigger things going on in NYC than us, till there were no more flights to be had. After waking refreshed and ready for my trip this morning I receive a text from my ride letting me know he couldn’t take me to catch my flight due to work conflicts. Life is full of changes in our plans, and this is a completely normal part of life. I have realized in my forty-three years that trying to control thing is “futile.” So I will sit back and recapture a blog I lost after the last Apple update, which I’m sure was designed to make things easier…😁
Unexpected change and disappointment happens every day. It’s life and if you cannot handle sudden change then you will be very stressed, anxious and “yes” even angry. We humans have a keen desire to control things; like our kids, our jobs, traffic, flights, other people, our destiny, I could go on and on.
Recently I have taken another look at the one who is really in control! I feel as if I’ve been re-introduced, although He has been right here all along. Now I know Him as Master of the Universe, and my loving Father who knows what I do not know and what I think I know, while He is teaching me gently and patiently. The one who has made provision way in advance for my life and has filled me up with Himself in Christ.
Because of this I am able to sit here at Dallas-Love Field and enjoy an “Art Vandelay” totally relaxed. I am able to learn that when you park in long term parking you should always get a ticket… 😏 (another story for another time). I can navigate speed bumps in life and trust that my Heavenly Father has a better understanding of My life and my world than me. I can rest knowing that His grip on me and my life is bigger and more secure than I have on my life. Knowing this fact allows me to relax, release my grip and let Him have complete control. I trust Him, faith is easy when you know the Master of the Universe. God has answers before we ever have problems. He will fulfill his purpose. You might as well sit back and enjoy the ride.
