Up in the sky-The Lord is my shepherd


Travelling by air is both worrisome and scary.  From the time one enters into an airplane to the time the plane lands; one cannot but anticipate anything to happen.

Granted, once one is up in the sky and the plane is flying without any hiccups, there is a feeling of joy and excitement. The same however cannot be said when the plane is taking off, experiences some turbulence while in the sky or when it’s landing. Such moments are tense.

The other part that causes panic is when the steward/stewardess starts giving both instructions and demonstrations on what to do in case of an emergency. Useful as that part of their work is important, I do not pay attention to it at all. Not a good thing to do.

The only thing that provides me with the calmness that I so need every time I fly is the realization that, “The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them.” (Psalms 34:7). Besides that, Psalms chapter 23 gives an added security. It reads:

“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over.  Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life;

And I will dwell[a] in the house of the Lord Forever.” (Psalms 23:1-6)

Do you get scared whenever you travel by air? Any time you fly, know that the good Lord is so much alive and that He will travel with you. Claim the promises of the above passages as well.
