Y'all! Today has been crazytown! I missed my flight to SEA this am due to some unexpected traffic in Nashville. Got rescheduled to a later flight but will miss my connection in SEA going to Wenatchee! The only available option was 11:15pm tonight 🙈
Why is it that things NEVER seem to go as planned, especially when I travel?! I think the Lord is trying to reiterate the fact that He is ultimately in control of EVERY aspect of my life, including travel. And that's so amazing but also really hard for me. I'm in a growing season with the Lord right now. A season of letting go + I'm gonna be real honest y'all, it's hard. It's hard to be called out in your sin. It's hard to ask God to make you aware of your sin... + then He answers with things like - materialism, self righteousness, fear of failure, lust of success + financial security - it's like a punch to the gut. But, the awesome thing about God is that He loves us enough to make us aware of these things because he doesn't want us to stay there. He wants to shower us with his grace + mercy + love. He relentlessly pursues us + urges us to become more + more like Christ. So, during this difficult season, through the struggles, through the mess, He is right there saying "Brandy, do not fear." "Brandy, Don't be anxious...come talk to me." "Brandy, Your identity is in ME...not those other things that you place before me like your job, house, status, approval." "Brandy, My grace is sufficient for you." I'm not sure what God's plans are, but I know that they are good. So, today, in the midst of all the crazy, by the grace of God I am at peace + I am hopeful because I know who holds my future. 🙌🏻 PS - I'll be spending 9 hours in SEA-TAC, most likely stuffing my face with chips + queso from Qdoba, so if you see a lonely red head come by + say hello!
