Monday Motivation: Feeding the Hunger

Anyone who knows me knows I love Aviation and all things about the industry. It has taught me patience, that there’s nothing set in stone, and to go with the flow.

The biggest thing I had to learn is probably the most important, to constantly keep myself ‘fed’. Early on I found out I could literally starve while working, because the airline industry doesn’t add in Lunch breaks. And I didn’t want to listen to everyone telling me to pack a lunch bag.

Spiritually I began to get thirsty as well, raised in a christian home, going to church was apart of my routine. When I started going to Collision I began to eat on my own (the meat of the Word, not just the milk).

Brothers, I could not address you as spiritual but as worldly—mere infants in Christ. I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you are still not ready.
-1 Corinthians 3:1-2

Being a Flight attendant your average work day can change in a heartbeat. You must keep yourself fueled for the day, and it cannot be ‘junk’ chips, soda, fast food etc. basically any airport food. The fruit, protein, meats are going to last longer, and not fill you up for a hour and leave you.

Same with the Word, you will not survive on the Sunday sermon alone. Eventually you will become hungry and may not always have someone to feed you. We must learn to do it ourselves. I think God takes great pleasure in us when he sees His child grow. And by doing so we could be preparing ourselves for a future battle, a new path, or simply to know our Father more closely.
