Just a Little Update

I would like to highlight just a couple of blessings and a continued prayer request.

I wanted to mention a couple of weeks back that I had been having some issues with my truck.  She is getting elderly but keeps kicking! Two paychecks in a row I have had to spend $200 to keep her running.  As frustrating as it can be to have a downed vehicle, I have to be honest and say that I enjoy learning more and more about my truck and how to repair it.  The last event, my truck was “smoking” as if it was overheating but it ended up just being a small leak in my coolant hose and a free fix.  I am so thankful for my co-worker Ryan who has really gone out of his way to help me and answer any questions I have.

This past weekend I was asked to speak at a prayer breakfast of sorts and share my passion for the ministry God has called me to. Of course, I was honored to be asked and deeply encouraged by the opportunity.  The event is called Faith Forum and is hosted by Dick Haines, a friend from my home church, New Monmouth Baptist Church. Dick is an older gentleman and his heart and passion for making Christ known to the community is inspirational.

The small group of 12 seemed very attentive and even participated with questions.  At the close of the meeting, several people donated funds equaling $120.  As I was getting into my truck to leave, a friend saw that I was in need of replacing a bad tire and decided to bless me with 4 new tires and an alignment! What a true blessing!!!  Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart! You know who you are.

It was so good to be home and spend time with some very dear friends while I was there.  I hope to visit again soon.

This weekend, I have made plans to attend a women’s retreat at America’s Keswick with some ladies from my church.  I am looking forward to it.  America’s Keswick is where I worked this past summer so I trust I will see many friends and have a blessed time getting to know others.  I pray that I will have the opportunity for some extended quiet time with the Lord. That would be nice.

My prayer request is that I would have divine wisdom and guidance regarding the completion of my private pilots license.  I know the Lord will make it clear in His time. I just want to be wise with the funds people have graciously donated and make the right decision.

Thank you all for your prayers and concern,

Love,

Liz 🙂

 

 

 

What a Crazy Day!

Today was so productive and overall, really great.  I got a lot accomplished. After everything was done, I had my heart set on using a couple gift cards to buy some things I needed.  It was about 7pm.  I got about 12 minutes from my house and my truck started overheating. I ventured back home. Within moments, I realized that I am coming down with a cold.  I went on my computer and lo and behold, I got a virus! Very thankfully, it was as easy as switching the date and time back to their correct places.  Boy, oh boy! What a ride!

My truck doesn’t have long to live, I am quite sure.  So, I look..and try to keep trusting.

My cold…well, I take some raw garlic and honey tea and hope for the best.  Going to bed early never hurt anything either.

Thankfully, the house is nice and clean 🙂  And, I got things done today before I got sick.

Going to bed thankful 🙂

God is good and He has a plan,

Dark Moments

Sometimes the road gets so hard.  Sometimes I want to quit.  Last night was one of those nights.  I considered packing it all in.  I can’t though.  His love compels me.

I was plagued by fear last night.  All weekend really.  It was a dark oppression. It seems that even if you know an attack is from The Enemy, it doesn’t help much.  He knows just the right things to say that shake you to the core.  I thought to myself, if I just give up then He will leave me alone.  The thoughts were so real.  The road has been so long.  But then, I immediately thought about the girls being abused.  I just know ONE DAY it WILL be worth it!!! I am sitting here with tears filling my eyes because the fight is so real and I so badly long for that day to come where I can rescue just one girl.  God has placed this desire so strongly on my heart.  He is the only reason I have not walked away.

I heard a lady on K-Love tonight who gave testimony about her young son who struggled with anxiety.  He prayed to God before He went to bed that night, that God would take away all his fears.  The next morning, he woke up and felt so much better.  His teachers even noticed and said he was like a different person. I was so blessed by that.  If God can do it for that little boy, He will do it for me.  This boy had so much faith.  He held nothing back, even in His prayer.  He asked God to take away ALL His fears.  God is Faithful.

To all of you who have ever prayed for me.  Thank you.  It means so much.

Love,

Liz 🙂

WOW!!! Welcome to Infinity Flight Group :)

It has been a season of great trial (due to a personal refining that God is doing in my heart and life) coupled with great joy as I see doors swinging open wide and dreams being realized.  Tonight, I was offered the Dispatcher position at the Trenton-Mercer Airport.  According to Wikipedia, the Trenton-Mercer Airport is the 4th busiest airport in NJ.  This past week another airline joined Frontier at the T-M airport, Allegiant Air.  It is a very busy place!  The flight school that I will be working at has 15 planes, 14 instructors and 85 active students.  It is a fast-paced environment and I am looking forward to it very much.

My job is, more or less, a front desk position.  I will be scheduling flights, assisting students and flight instructors with any needs they may have, checking flights in and out and trying to promote business for the flight school when I can.  It will be a full-time position, Monday-Friday.

A huge perk to the job, for me, is that I will receive discounted flight training. From what I understand, it will be a significant savings.  I will also be able to fly either before or after my shift.  I am so thrilled about that!

I will be looking to relocate to the area so I am praying about housing and a new church home.  I have been blessed to be a part of Calvary Chapel in Silverton.  They have wrapped their arms around me and supported me since the first time I visited.   Getting to know them, especially the ladies, has been a huge blessing to me.

Well, I will keep you posted.  Check back often!  And, thanks for reading 🙂

Thank you Father!

Woohoo!!!

It happened.  My solo flight to Cape May took place today.  It was so peaceful and I felt like the Lord was guiding each step of the way.  I guess most of all I just felt blessed to be flying at all.  It is only by the grace of God, the support of SO MANY and some persistence on my end that I am flying today.  A dream is becoming a reality and one day soon, I hope to be transporting my first survivor of sex trafficking to a place of safety.  Only God knows…and my dreams are at His feet.

My Little Ride

I was pretty happy. It was a sunny, beautiful day!

In the early 1940’s this was an active Naval Air Station. There is now a museum here. I have not yet been but would like to go sometime.

I was hoping to go into the terminal to get something from the vending machine but they were doing renovations. I will have to come back when they re-open. There is a restaurant here. Anyone want to join me for lunch? 🙂

N99HR a.k.a. Hot Rod.  She cruises at about 107 MPH.

If God Wills…

After waiting 21 days for everything to line up, I think my solo flight may actually happen tomorrow. The winds are projected to be lower tomorrow.  I need them to be under 10 kts.  Right now, they are projected to be between 7 and 15 kts along my route.  The great thing is, I have a personal relationship with the Maker of the winds so, I am confident that if it doesn’t work out, there is a good reason.  But, I look forward to being able to accomplish this flight.

For those who haven’t heard yet, I had 2 great interviews with a flight school in Ewing, NJ who is looking for a dispatcher.  More or less it is a customer service/sales position.  I am very excited about it.  It would be a huge blessing and could benefit me in many ways.   After my flight tomorrow, I was told that I could go to this flight school and shadow an employee  for this potentially new job.

I hope to find out tomorrow if the job is a good fit for both the company and myself.

So, apart from the election, there is a lot going on tomorrow.  And, whatever happens in our country and in my life, I will know that it is for my good and His glory.  God is so Good like that.  Thank you Jesus for your everlasting kindness toward us.  We are grateful.
