analogy has just occurred to me. Let's call it Flight #171
destination "life's purpose". Departure time 7:05, it is now 8:15
the plane is packed and still you haven't taken off. Imagine all the
discontent and irritability going on, you can hear the crowd
grumbling, "what' s going on up there, why don't they just do their
jobs and take off?". Some are fretting over connecting flights still
others about their own agendas, whatever they may be, the impatience
levels are growing. Perhaps one or two are simply making good use of
this time, in the holding pattern. That's where I feel I stand
today, in the holding pattern.
Allot has changed, my schedule has been interrupted. I'm waiting,
for what and why I don't know. What is it that is going on up there?
Okay, I'm tapping my feet pacing back and forth, what's the hold up?
Isn't it just like us to start pacing in the wait or complaining or
questioning. Sometimes I simply go to sleep, watch mindless TV or
just sit there doing nothing. God has given me a place in which to
wait. He says I must be prepared in season and out. He says I must
prepare myself for the battle. He has given me a set of guide lines.
He has shown me a place where I can rest. He tells me when I listen.
He allows me to see when I open my eyes. Still, I ask, "what's the
Have you ever been there? Do you know of the wait?
Then, after the wait, it seems to never end, the pilot announces
over the speaker," folks, thank-you for your patience, we've just
been given clearance for take-off and we'll be taxing in 5 minutes.
We'll arrive in one hour and twenty minutes, so jut sit back and
enjoy your flight and once again thank-you for flying with us". All
of a sudden everything seems a bit better; excitement returns.
Anticipation is restored.
Jesus is my pilot, the voice from the tower is my Father. My Father
has said, "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord,
"plans to...give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11.
Pray with me, read and study the word, make good use of your time
and then above all enjoy your life flight!!!
