Rough Landing

Several years ago, I experienced a rough landing. The wind was fierce and our pilot had a difficult time landing the plane. The lady seated next to me grabbed my arm tightly and started crying. While trying to calm her down, we heard someone vomit loudly a couple of rows in front of us. As we taxied to our gate, the flight attendant murmured to her coworker, "that was really rough, I wasn't sure we were going to make the runway." Since we were seated in the back row, the smell of fresh vomit was pungent. I exclaimed, "Oh, someone got sick; I can smell it from here!" A muffled voice in front of us responded, "Sorry." I giggled from embarrassment as well as relief that we were on the ground in one piece

Casting Crowns sings: "And I'll praise You in this storm; And I will lift my hands; That You are who You are; No matter where I am”. (Praise You in This Storm)

Heavenly Father, I was really scared when that happened. But, deep down, I knew You were right there.(When I am afraid, I put my trust in You. Psalm 56:3). I openly thank You for allowing us to make the runway. But, even if we hadn't made it and died, You would've had a purpose and a plan. Amen.

This I declare that He alone is my refuge; He is my God and I am trusting Him. Psalm 91:2
