“Welcome to flight QF505…make certain that your seat belt is fastened, your tray table is stowed and your seat is in an upright position for takeoff and landing. In the event of a sudden drop in cabin pressure, an oxygen mask will appear in front of you…”
It is always comforting to know that every time you board a plane a great deal of thought has been put into what would happen if that plane, for one reason or another, had some difficulties during the flight. As I was flying to
Brisbane this week I thought about the fact that there was a ‘brace’ position, a plan for a water landing, and even a protocol for making certain that my ipod didn’t interfere with the sensitive navigational equipment. (A thought which troubles me no end!) These protections are in place to account for the ‘worse case scenarios’ which unfortunately do happen from time to time.
We all want our lives to be free of troubles, trials and turbulence. The problem is that every life will face these at some point or other. The question is, “Do you have safety procedures in place?” Are you ready for when things go wrong? How are you going to handle it?
I have a safety procedure in place that I would recommend. This could easily become yours as well…all you have to do is ask!
“God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear.” Psalms 46:1
