On Wednesday morning, I flew up to Seattle. On the plane ride up, a gal was sitting in my row with an empty seat in between us. I knew I was supposed to talk to her about God. I asked for an opportunity, but basically chickened out and didn’t make the effort. I then went to the pastor’s gathering where I preached on “courage” of all things. The whole time, I was struck by my failure that morning on the plane.
After speaking, I went right back to the airport to fly home. When I arrived at my seat, guess who was seated RIGHT NEXT TO ME! Do you know how impossible that is? For her to be on the same flight was already amazing, but for her to be seated right next to me was near impossible! Even she had to know it couldn’t have been coincidence. I was able to then share with her why I believed God placed her next to me. She opened up about her life, and we had a great conversation. The greatest part is that she had to know that God Himself was pursuing her. As for me, it was another reminder that God is constantly walking with me.
