Two nights ago I was on a plane, there was turbulence and the only thing I could see out the window was darkness and clouds. Yeah, get ready for the really deep synopsis of my experience because it’s coming!
But first, on the plane my first thought was to pray. Ironically enough I was reading a book that speaks of faith “The battle belongs to The Lord” by Joyce Meyer. Before I get all deep and profound on you guys – I was scared.
I was on a plane much smaller than I’m used to. Everything indicated trouble, from the rattling of the plane to the rain splashing against the window and the looks on the faces of my fellow passengers but I prayed anyway.
This pilot, some Middle Aged guy with a quaint smile that nodded at me as I entered the plane now held my life in his hands – like dude, I don’t even know you that well. So here I am, doing what I do each time I fly – trusting.
We don’t know who our pilot is when we hop on a plane but we fly anyway. We do however; as believers, know God. We may be flying blind, but dang nabbit Richard (no idea who Richard is) we are flying with an almighty God that sees and knows all things!
I’ve learned to fly blind and not think twice about it. I may not know the weather conditions, I may not know the state of the aircraft or the fuel levels but I know God is the pilot of my life and as long as He’s in charge – I don’t mind flying blind!
“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”
Isaiah 40:31 KJV
Live a little, love a lot, be a blessing!
