The Hidden Wing

"Where are you headed?"

"Columbus."

"Columbus, Ohio?"

"No. Columbus, Georgia."

I had never been to Columbus, Georgia. In fact, I had never heard of it. Imagine my surprise when I learned that there was an airport there? 

In spite of my shock, I was so excited. There's nothing my God can not do  When I booked my flight from the West Coast back to the East Coast, I purposefully set myself up to fly into Columbus, Georgia.

After boarding at 10:40pm for an 11:00pm departure from San Francisco, we safely arrived in Atlanta as scheduled at 6:22am.  When I looked for my connecting flight, I saw that the status was listed as "At Gate."

I was having an internal panic attack. What exactly did that mean? Perhaps it meant there was an indeterminate delay. I walked up to the gate and looked out the window but didn't see anything and there was no attendant present. After taking a short walk to pull myself together, I returned to the gate. This time, I saw an attendant and was able to ask for clarification on the status. She smiled and informed me that the aircraft was already sitting there at the gate. Upon second glance, I saw the wing peeking out from behind the jet bridge. 



It's so easy for us to miss the little things in the midst of so many bigger things.  This was even evident in John 6:9, which reads, "There is a lad who had five barley loaves and two fish, but what are these for so many people?"

God can do much with little. Getting to this little city on this little aircraft will allow me to see my little girl dominant on the gymnastics floor.

Don't miss the little things God uses to bless your life!

Don't Harbor Unforgiveness

“ His mother left him and his father turned his back on him .” These words struck me like a bolt of lightening. They were words spoken directly to me. They depict a part of my life that I failed to acknowledge. A part of my life that I suppressed. A part of my life that I chose to ignore. Failure to acknowledge. Suppression. Ignoring. None of these things cause the past to flee. These things do not cause the past to change. Nor do they allow for full ability to walk into true purpose and authority. This is not an isolated story. With a human service and child welfare background, I know firsthand that this story is one in a million. But we also see it every day. If you're like me, you sometimes find your escape in movies and television series. Instead of spending time in your own realities, you spend time watching scripted realities. It's an opportunity to disengage ourselves from the characters on the screen. It's a way to passively accept or criticize the s
