Okay, I am going to stop posting my flight information because the Lord has plans I am not aware of. I arrived at the Indy airport for my flight to Kansas City. I had been forwarned that Southwest Airlines doesn't do assigned seats. You get an "A," "B," or "C," stamped on your ticket and you line up accordingly.

If you are in the "A" line you get on first. The "B" line second, and so on. I was in the "A" line, and was first or second in line. I was going to get my choice of seats! (I like to be up front so I can get off quickly)

The time came to board, but there was no plane. The time came to leave, but no plane. Then, a voice over the loudspeaker... "if your final destination is Tulsa, please come to the desk. I had to relinquish my amazing spot in line for who knows why!

I get to the desk, and am told, "We don't know whent this plane is coming, and we are rerouting you to Chicago. You will catch the same flight there that will head to Kansas City." "What about my luggage," I ask? "We will ship it to you if it does not arrive in Tulsa. You can tell them that Patty said so." I am thinking "I don't think they will care what Patty in Indy said when I arrive in Tulsa. I tell her, "but I'll be in Mexico." A distraught desk clerk does not know what to say to me.

She is busy getting my tickets ready. She is doing so using the 'hunt and peck' method of typing. One finger at a time! She retyped my name. I was no longer Brent, now my name is Robert. If my plane goes down, my wife and daughters will not know it, because Robert Higgins died, not Brent Higgins.

She handed me my ticket. I have been bumped from an "A" to a "C." "I can't fly as an "A," I ask? "I don't have "A" cardstock, I am sorry."

Great! I am going to Chicago as Robert Higgins, and I am flying as a "C," no doubt at the back of the plane.

I sit down, and it hits me. "Your disappointment is God's Divine appointment." I wasn't too thrilled to remember that, at that moment. Frustrated, I look around and begin to pray for His leading.

I arrive in Chicago, scurry to my next gate, and get in the "C" line. The "A" and "B" lines extend for "infinity and beyond." I am thinking... "back of the plane." After what seemed like hours, my turn comes to get on the plane. To my utter amazement, the first row of seats has 4 vacancies!

I sit down, and my swirling brain is trying to calm down. I had a strong sense from the Lord that my front row seat was His way of showing me that He was in control, and I needed to be ready.

Seated in my row, two seats over sits a lady in her 50's or 60's. A conversation begins. We begin talking about her family. Her son is in graphic design and works for the "WatchTower."

That was my cue. I knew why I was sent to Chicago. That publication is put out by "Jehovah's Witnesses." When she finishes her story, I share mine. I share about BJ's journey. His love for Christ, and his laying down his life for His purposes.

She is a very sweet lady, and I hope to meet her again. We discussed scripture. I asked her how she was saved. She said "by works." I showed her Ephesians 2:8-9, and she read it from her Bible, as I followed along in mine. She talked of James writings that "faith without works is dead." I told her that "works are the result of a love relationship with Jesus, and not a means to salvation." I reiterated the Ephesians passage, that "We are saved by grace through faith, and not by works so that no man may boast."

In the end, she asked if I would take a book she had on the the Bible. I told her that I would, but that I didn't agree with the theology, and that I beleived Jesus was fully God and fully man. I showed her scripture on that, and she debated, and said Jesus was not God. We had a wonderful conversation. I am not sure she understood what I was saying, but thankfully, that is up to the Holy Spirit, and not me. Another seed was planted. But she would probably say the same of her conversation with me. The difference is, "I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that He is able, to keep that which I've committed unto Him against that day."

Glory Lord Jesus!
