That did it.
Until then, I had been fine. Really calm. Excited. Looking forward to our departure. Then all of a sudden the anxieties flooded my chest and I started feeling stressed.
And I look at that now and think,
Really--THAT got you?
Caused you to stumble?
Oh boy am I in trouble.
But God is so good.
One of the verses I came across this weekend
(actually the morning before I realized I needed more luggage)
was Psalm 94:19
"In the multitude of my anxieties within me,
your comforts delight my soul."
And I started thinking and delighting in His comforts.
He will never leave me.
He will never forsake me.
His mercy is new every morning.
His grace is sufficient.
His power is made perfect in my weakness.
And I called a couple friends to borrow that luggage.
