Off to Lubbock

Today we are flying to Lubbock. Paul has to go to Texas Tech to do some recruiting for work and so Charlie and I are coming along so we can all spend some time with Paul's brother and his family.

If you would, please keep us in your prayers as we travel. If you keep up with me, you know my fear of flying, and I would just ask that you pray for peace and for safety. I'm feeling a lot better about this trip after having such a good experience on our last trip, but those nagging chains of fear are still creeping in. I call them chains because I am realizing that's what they are. When I fear, I am not living in the freedom in Christ that I have been given- freedom from death and the fear of death. When I think with an eternal perspective, I know that the Lord is with us, He already knows today's events, and all the days of my life. He is in charge and nothing has ever or will ever happened without His knowledge. I would greatly appreciate your prayers as I struggle to maintain that eternal perspective for the hour or so that we are in the air (I know, its only an hour!!!).

"God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, even though the earth be removed and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; though its waters roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with its swelling. Selah." Psalm 46:1-3
