Safe in Midland

A Guest Post by: Christine Laporte

Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me your right hand will hold me fast.
(Psalm 139: 7-10)

Knowing the Lord is our keeper

We talk to Him in our minds

There’s still some anxiety welling up

As into the skies we climb

But take off is part of the process

Wheels up and into the air

The whole time we try to imagine

The hand of God carrying us there

The flight itself can hold promise

Because we all need a timely word

And the Lord is in the habit

Of placing the right people onboard

Time to rest, catch up with each other

An excellent chance to read

The time in between destinations

Can provide the stillness we need

There’s also a view from the heavens

Making mountains and rivers look small

We see the majesty of His hands;

His power reigns above all

Finally approaching the airport

It’s reassuring knowing we’ll land

Wheels down then retrieving our luggage;

Texting we’re safe in Midland.
