Yesterday and today could have been very difficult travel days, indeed. I had bought my round-trip tickets to Malta separately from my round-trip tickets to Rome. I had planned a 4 hour layover to claim my bag and check in to my other flight. If anything went wrong with my Malta flight, it could have cost me the flight back to Milan. (Remember my post from April titled Six Hours Late?)
Likewise, the potential for problems loomed for today’s travel. I will be meeting Nina at the airport after she drops off her son’s fiancée at another airport. If there is a traffic snarl or something goes wrong, and Nina doesn’t get there in time, what do I do? Go ahead and check in? Give up my ticket and wait? And Buck will be meeting us at the airport in Sofia, and driving us to The Promised Land Complex, about 2 ½ hours away.
Such travel plans fraught with possibilities for problems used to keep me awake at night. But this time I prayed about it, and decided to leave it all in God’s hands whatever happens. I slept very well both nights, and yesterday morning before traveling, God told me very clearly that His message to me for the day’s travel is Psalm 81:6, “I removed the burden from their shoulders; their hands were set free from the basket.” God is promising to carry my luggage for me because I’ve let go of my baggage. By that I mean that since I decided to just trust Him, He is promising to take care of me the whole way.
Your might be wondering what is today’s travel promise from God. Proverbs 3:6, “In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths.”
And He has! God is good! Whatever comes, God is good!
