Any time I'm flying and we run in to turbulence, my instinctive reaction is to close my eyes and grab the hand of the person sitting next to me.

Turbulence is unexpected, unsettling, unnerving, unrest.

In flying lingo its "violent or unsteady movement of air or water or some other liquid; instability in the atmosphere."

We go through turbulence in life don't we?

  • When you're job hunting but there's no job in sight
  • When you have more bills than cash at the end of the month
  • Dealing with a sudden death of a loved one
  • Sickness
  • A difficult relationship
  • A tenuous time in your marriage when you seem disconnected
  • When your children are disrespectful 
  • When it seems like everyone is against you

The next time you're going through turbulence, don't go it alone.  Close your eyes and reach out to Someone who can guide you through.

When hard pressed, I cried to the Lord; he brought me into a spacious place. 
The Lord is with me; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me? 
The Lord is with me; he is my helper. I look in triumph on my enemies.
It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in humans. Psalms 118: 5-8

Are turbulent times getting the best of you?

  1. They did 6 years ago for a time, but I did just what you said above, I closed my eyes, prayed, and reached for that righteous right hand of His (Isaiah 43:10). He pulled me out of a miry clay and set my feet upon solid ground. Praising God all the way!
