I never thought I’d ever be barred from boarding a plane. Worse, to watch the rest of my family board without me.
But I awoke to a miraculous event- Immigration said my case might take a week or more to process, but while I slept, God worked, and it was approved overnight.
I lay in bed, my heart heavy, still.
“Oh God, and the extra financial costs. Please rain down Your mercy,” I groaned inwardly.
I didn’t feel like leaving home. But I felt a push-
When I reached F45, a young lady and I were assigned to the same team. She was new, and I knew it’d be a struggle. (Saturday workouts are always a beast, even for regulars!) I turned back on my laps to help her through some of the gym stations. She thanked me profusely-
– But it was I who was blessed when she said, “I’m having a fan-girl moment. Your talks have been a blessing. Your words have done so much for me.”
As tears gushed out of her large, beautiful eyes, she said, “I’d like to pay for your rescheduled ticket back to Canada. You have done so much for others, your family has been so generous. I want and NEED to do this. PLEASE let me.”
Goosebumps filled my skin.
“What if it’s a lot?”
“Money is only money if it’s spent. Please buy the earliest flight out to be reunited with your family.”
I began to tear too, as I felt God telling me, “I have cancelled your debt.”
For all my foibles and failings, He cancelled my shortcomings and placed favor in the gap.
Over the months, as Cliff and I worried about the financial dent this epic trip of faith would leave us with, we received 2 love gifts that helped cover a great part of it. When we obey, He provides.
To those of you who have sent textes, DMs, songs, drawings and sticky/virtual hugs, thank you for being a witness to God’s love. 🏽 When we can’t see His hand, we can trust His heart. 💛🔥
Thank you for continuing to pray for breakthrough as I wait on flight tickets, and for Cliff & the girls’ well-being as they adjust to a new world. 🙏🏾
