How to Overcome the Fear of Flying

Today I was scared.

I’m rarely ever scared, even when trying new things. I’m usually anxious, but never scared!

Today was the contrary. As I am driven to the airport to go to Chicago to embark on the beginning of a new chapter that is opening in my life. I was TERRIFIED. Alligator tears streamed my face like the Niagara Falls.

I knew the moment I got on that plane, things were going to change…and they did.

This assignment was chosen for me, by my Heavenly Father, why me, I don’t know! So I was definitely going to do it, albeit while shaking in my boots, but it’s getting done. As I approach the TSA check-in, I make a detour to the bathroom and I ball my eyes out and my mom who’s with me, does what she does. She prayed. It worked.

As I head to check in, each step gets easier. It gets lighter. I begin to feel like I’m floating. As the plane took off, a settled finished feeling consumed me.

Guess what God was with me every step of the way. He showed me his hand with his favor and I am forever grateful.
