  1. Lucretia, I love this story! I think our understanding of the Great Commission could be greatly enhanced if we read “Go into all the world” as “As you go into all the world. . . .” We’re always going, and we always need to be demonstrating that we have faith in something higher, larger, stronger than we.

    Thanks so much for all the ways you share your faith!

  2. I have been sitting here and crying and thanking Jesus for all he does for us and for others if we will only trust him and believe him. We can spread our Faith in small ways and not even realize it. Thank God that has given us this Faith to trust in him.

    • Hi Julia!
      I agree. How we live our faith speaks louder than our words about our faith.

      Thank you so much for reading and appreciating my story.

      May your light continue to shine brightly.

      Shalom

  3. First, should we ever share a flight in the future, I call dibs on the seat next to you. And second, you are incredible, and I thank you for giving me much food for thought about how my actions can tangibly represent God’s Word and truth to others through life’s ups and downs. Love you!

    • Hi Kristen!
      You are too funny!

      How we live our faith speaks louder than the words we say about our faith.

      Thank you so much for reading and appreciating my story.

      May your light continue to shine brightly.

  4. Lucretia, my God is So Good moment was in August of 2009. My husband and I were flying for a business trip. We had been in the air for about 20 minutes and the pilot spoke over the intercom that we had experienced a bird strike to the left engine. I looked over my shoulder and could see flames. Passengers started screaming and crying. Three young girls that were seated separate from their parents were crying out to their dad. The flight attendants were calling out to bend over, heads down. My husband took my face in his hands and kept saying, I Love You, I Love You, do you hear me? All I could say is, God is Good, over and over and over. Everyone was holding hands even across the aisle and began reciting The Lord’s Prayer. Nothing, absolutely nothing could have convinced me that we would experience a crash. The pilot landed away from the airport so the fire trucks could put out the flames and we all cheered for a safe landing. God is So Good and I pray for those that are afraid to put their trust in him. What a comfort to feel his presence. May others see Jesus in me 🙂

    • WOW Kimberly!!
      I am so happy to know that you were able to feel God’s tangible presence in the midst of chaos. How we live our faith speaks louder than the words we say about our faith.

      Thank you so much for reading and appreciating my story. And thank you for sharing your incredible story!

      May your light continue to shine brightly.

      Shalom

  5. This was a very interesting story about how our faith can effect others. I am totally afraid of flying and this person’s calmness and
    assurance from God that all was okay was very inspiring to me.

  6. Lucretia,

    I have had the same thoughts as you about sharing our faith. These words keep popping up “watch how you act for the world is watching you.” Most days I do my best to shine His light & love to others. Trying to embody Christ to my co-workers, patients & their families. Want to make disciples by being a good example of Christian like you were. I messed up big time one day at work-due to being tired, going through changes (new interim manager, etc.) & co-workers issues. I was upset with myself for not showing more of Jesus. Now I’m going through a huge change at work-they are closing my unit for how long I don’t know. This is the second time in two years due to staffing issues. Deep down in my heart I know God has this! I will be fine. Just need to pray & ask God for discernment. It is well!!

    Blessings 🙂
