Answered Prayer – Plane Ticket!

“The One who calls you is faithful, and He will do it.”

~I Thessalonians 5:24

I love when God answers prayer. I have learned so much about the power of prayer over the course of the last year. He continues to amaze me in the ways He provides.

First of all, MY TICKET IS BOOKED! I depart for China on Tuesday, March 13, 2012, which means that I will be arriving in China on my 26th birthday. What better way to celebrate it right? As excited as I am, please keep my anxiety in your prayers. I have SO much to do in the next 2 months. A verse the Lord continues to place on my heart is Philippians 4:6-7. It’s been a favorite of mine for years, but especially the last few weeks.

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

~Philippians 4:6-7

I have been looking at tickets for months. God has been telling me for the last 2 weeks that it is time to buy it. As I’m researching tickets, the prices are ever changing. After a while, it feels like a mind game. I found a great deal but unfortunately it was to an airport that wasn’t the most convenient. After looking at tickets for a few hours and driving myself crazy Tuesday night, I knew I need to stop, give it to God, get some sleep, and look again the next day.

On Wednesday I spent all day just praying over my ticket. Praying that God would provide a good ticket, at a good price, to the right airport, and with an arrival time a convenient time. I finally just decided to just get the $940 ticket. I’d budgeted in $1,000 for my airfare, so that would be fine. I looked up the tickets after work, clicked to $940 one to “book it” and it all of a sudden switched to $778!!! God is SO good! This the cheapest ticket BY FAR that I have come across in the last few months and it is the EXACT flights that I was looking at the last few weeks but $170 cheaper! It was just another reminder of His provision. I got tears in my eyes with thankfulness to Him. His fingerprints have been all over this trip to China. God is so good.
