Steph was invited to a close friend’s wedding in Kentucky. I had made it home from dropping her off at the airport and just crawled into bed when the phone rang. I heard a distressed voice on the other end of the line. “Mom, my flight was delayed and we missed the adjoining flight and now I am stuck at the airport in Chicago. I’m exhausted, cold, and hungry. I’m standing near the end of a really long line waiting to book my fight for the morning. They are putting us up in a hotel for the night. This line is going to take hours to get through.”
Just then I remembered a story a speaker told about getting stuck at an airport and I said. “I will pray that you get through that line in a hurry.”
“Okay,” Steph said in that same tired voice, and we hung up.
I thought about what the speaker had said. He told us that they were at the back of the ticket line and it was going to take a long time to get through and they had to get to a conference in the next city. They prayed and believed God would take care of it and a lady took them to the front of the line and opened up a new counter. Their tickets were processed and they were on their way. They got to their conference on time.
Within a couple of minutes the phone rang again. Steph said, “You’ll never guess what happened. A lady came and got me and took me to the front of the line and opened up another desk. I’m done and heading for my hotel room.
God is good.
