When Turbulence is Staring YOU in the Face

Hey Fam,

How’s everything going? I pray that all is well and it’s Thursday evening! You’ve made it over the hump and Friday is almost staring you in the face, so hold on!

Initially when I sat down in the airport to write this, I was going to talk about love. I’ve been on a super love kick lately… nothing wrong with that lol but I got sidetracked by a flying bird and my confusion as to how it got stuck inside the airport overtook my commitment to my thoughts lol

Anyway, once on the plane my thoughts wandered and I tried to sleep, but couldn’t so I began editing pictures from a shoot I did last weekend. As we were about 25 minutes out from landing we started experiencing turbulence and the seat belt signs came on. As soon as the plane began shaking everyone stopped talking. What started as a chatty (at a respectable level) plane became pin drop quiet.

Initially I wasn’t worried, I’ve been on bad flights before. Then it got worse so I began playing cookie jam on my phone, looking for a distraction since I had to have my laptop closed and tray table up. Then it got worse, so I began to pray…

When I was praying, I was reminded of how important it is to stay in prayer constantly. We love to pray when things are going well, or once we’ve tried other things and exhausted our capabilities… distractions. Why wasn’t prayer my first reaction to worry? And I use the term worry loosely bc deep in my heart I honestly knew we’d be okay, but really… did I? And I was reminded of something else too, when affliction is staring you in the face, you cannot afford to be quiet!

Prayer works Fam! It changes situations/circumstances/outlooks/perspectives/ it changes hearts… anyway, I pray you all have a great Thursday Afternoon/Evening and an incredible weekend. I love you all and I leave you with this…

Romans 12:12 NLT
Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.

Thanks again, God bless and One love.
