I made it! He is our stronghold in time of trouble (Psalm 37:39)

"The salvation of the righteous is from the LORD; he is their stronghold in the time of trouble." - Psalm 37:39

Well I made it. And while this verse may be more about evil-dooers vs. those who trust in the Lord, I still think it applies.

I wanted to rejoice for a minute that the Lord pulled me through the 2nd most miserable trip of my life (One time I flew consecutively from Tirana Albania, to Vienna, to Beijing, to Los Angeles, to Denver... with a 7 hour layover in Vienna, 12 hour layover in Beijing and 10 hour layover in Los Angeles... I wanted to die, and blame this for my unreasonable dislike of flying).

My precious daughter flew wonderfully well and screamed only for a few minutes in the whole 40+ hour extravaganza. I did everything I could to look to the Lord, but credit your prayers and the Lord's grace.

I made it, I was calm, I wasn't miserable, I didn't want to die. And best of all I was reminded of my calling and the heart the Lord has given me for these people.

I'll be around, but need to get back to my kid and wife. Just wanted to say a big thank you for the prayers, and a big praise God for His grace. He is our stronghold, He is our salvation.
