Courage: mental or moral strength to venture, persevere, and withstand danger, fear, or difficulty.
To be perfectly transparent? This trip terrified me. The thought of flying on an airplane wasn’t my favorite. In fact I really had some serious fear concerning flying. I’d avoid it at all costs unless it was something I HAD to do and then I’d be hyperventilating or my stomach would be in knots the entire time.
The thing is, I know God does not want His children living in, or managing fear. His word says perfect love casts out fear and if you’re living in fear then His love has not become fully matured in you. 😳 yikes. Which means I needed breakthrough and a revelation of His immaculate, and perfect love in my life. Right? On top of that in 40 days there will be a set of little eyes that will watch what I do for the rest of her life. What example was I going to set if I just managed fear in my life? How much was I going to set myself back by this? I didn’t want to find out. I want to accomplish all He has for me to do in this life and know with certainty I did everything He has asked of me.
And allll these thoughts started happening when two of my closest sister friends started talking about NY for their birthdays. Then the excuses rolled in, “oh you just got engaged you have to use ALL your funds for the wedding.” “Yeah, no you definitely shouldn’t go it’s wisdom to save money, duh.” Then the Holy Spirit speaks, kindly and profound as He does: “So this has nothing to do with flying to New York?” And it was then and there that I decided I would be a slave to nothing and trust Him in everything.
I had the most anxiety free flight for the first time in a long time. Little did I know that on the other side of that flight was more breakthrough than I would have imagined. But that’s the thing about God—it’s never about the one thing with Him. There is always more. The question is, are we going to be courageous enough to find out what the more is? I hope this inspires someone to take the step. Book the flight, take the trip. And friend trust Him, it’s the best idea I’ve ever had.
My love letter to my dearest,
Five years ago, you were a different kind of person.
You were short-tempered. You never promised me forever.
I never meant to change you either, but somehow you change.
Over time, you become incredibly patient and loving. Indeed you never promised me forever, but you show me that you ain’t giving up on me, no matter how hard the situation is, no matter what gets in our way. You always aim for my happiness, even if it means to sacrifice yours. You go extra miles when it comes to loving me. It’s never in a form of words, but it’s your action that says a lot.
To someone that I can look up to;
someone that I know I can rely on;
someone that I can share joy and sorrow;
someone that I find comfort in;
someone that never leaves me even when the world turns its back on me;
someone that believes in me more than I believe in myself;
someone that encourages me to be better and push me to the limit to achieve those stars;
someone that truly cares about my well-being, spiritual and mental growth, and long-term goals;
someone that I never asked for, but God indeed saved the right one for me;
Thank you for being the best partner I could ever ask. Words fail to describe how much I am grateful for you and in love with you.
Whippin that work on this little owl I made yesterday. I know as tattooers there are little tricks or sections in a piece we’re in the middle of that are especially gratifying. For me it’s building textures up and contrasting them. What’s your’s?
