Not Sweating the Journey

20140207-055556.jpgI am on vacation, visiting my mom and friends in my old hometown. While traveling yesterday on the last leg of my flight, the flight attendant, while giving the customary welcome and flight instructions stated our destination then second guessed it. She unclicked the intercom button, softly laughed, and asked the passengers nearest her if the stated destination was the right one before proceeding with the flight instructions. She knew she was on the right plane, and although she’d briefly forgotten the details of the trip, she trusted the pilot and co-pilot to get us there. The only thing she really concerned herself with was fulfilling her purpose.

The incident made me think of our Christian experiences. Although we may not know the details of our journey through life, we trust we’re on the right path, and we trust our Pilot and Co-Pilot.
