I am not a frequent flyer or traveler, so I am not used to handling delays or the unexpected on flights. Today, as we sat waiting to de-ice the plane, the procedure that the captain said usually takes 15 minutes, or up to 30 minutes on a busy day, took 2 hours. Needless to say, I counted the hours as they passed, knowing that our connecting flight would take off before we landed. That's when the stress of not knowing what to do sets in, but should we worry?
There are times in our lives when we are reminded that we need to let go and allow God to take care of us. It can be hard as we may try to be "proactive" or fix things on our own. During times when we seem to lose control or not have control, we can be assured that God is still working in our lives. We can remember that we need to place all things in His hands. Once we do that, we have no reason to worry or stress. Instead, after we let go, we can just praise Him!
Put things in God's hands and then let go and praise Him!
Thank You for having control and for loving me. All praise to You and Your power in my life. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
