Trust Me

"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." (Romans 15:13)

Today on my flight back home to Texas, I sat next to a girl who was absolutely terrified of flying. She insisted that it was far too cloudy for the pilot to see where he was going & with every bump we hit, she would grab onto the armrests and tell me, "This isn't good, this can't be good."

Sensing she desperately needed it, I took it as my mission to comfort her. For the entire two-and-a-half hour flight, I repeatedly told her, “You will be fine. We will get through the clouds and be on the ground before you know it.” As we finally approached landing, she asked if she could hold my hand. I agreed to and we safely made our arrival. Relieved and a little embarrassed, she gratefully thanked me as we parted ways. 

A little while later I began pondering the whole situation and how this compares perfectly to my relationship with Jesus. So often I panic whenever I hit a small “bump" or find myself in the thick "clouds" and can't see where I'm going or what exactly is going on. It is then though, that I have 2 choices: will I cling to the armrests in fear, stating, “This can’t be good,” or will I listen to Jesus as He holds out His hand and says, “Trust me” and know that He has everything under control? I hope to always make the second choice with confidence & peace in knowing that Jesus already has my “flight” mapped out. 


Prayer: Lord, I confess that I try to be the pilot of my own life when I need to give over all control to You. Rid me of all anxiousness and timidness, and remind me that you have me in the palm of your hand and have everything worked out for good. Allow me to cling to You when I feel fear creeping in, and trust wholeheartedly in the path You have prepared for me.

Suggested Reading: Psalm 9:10
