Week of February 3-7, 2003
It was a
mild summer day in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina
when I boarded United Airline flight 7318 to
Washington, DC. Like usual, I promptly
located my window seat, with no doubts that the
pilots would safely take me to my destination.
as I sat gazing out of the window waiting for
take-off, certain questions unfolded in my mind.
I wondered, Who are these pilots that I
wholeheartedly entrust with my life?
I wondered about my surety of knowing that they
would, or could take me to my destination. I
also pondered on Why it is that I -- or we
as individuals, trustingly and unwaveringly allow
others to continuously pilot our lives without
questions or reservations?
other people to pilot our lives while we
unquestionably find our seat near the window
just watching watching our lives
quickly pass by. We lack faith in
ourselves, because too often, we allow other
people such as bosses, friends, family and even
enemies, to navigate our lives. We allow
them to pilot our lives because of their negative
words. We allow them to pilot our lives
because they claim to know what is best for us.
We live on autopilot without a clue as to where
we are headed, or how we will get there.
declare that we will no longer allow others to
take control of our lives or of our
future. No matter how cloudy things look,
no matter how dark our past is, we must remember
that God is in control. Allow God to be
your pilot -- as you co-pilot your own life into
a prosperous and promising future.
Declare: I will no
longer sit back and allow others to control my
life into an uncertain and discontented future.
The past is behind me, and only the best is yet
