A young man was learning to fly a single engine airplane. It was time to learn about landing the plane so the instructor said: ‘Are you ready to go down?’ And the student said, ‘yes, let’s do that’. So, the plane began to descend. The instructor looked over at the young man and he wasn’t sweating at all, he was completely cool. The instructor thought, this guy will make a good pilot. Suddenly, the plane hit the ground with a thud and bounced back up 50 feet into the air, then came down again and bounced up again, and then it landed off the runway where it stopped. The instructor said to the student: ‘son, I have been teaching pilots for many years and that is probably the worst landing ever done by a student pilot.’ He replied: ‘me? I thought you were landing the plane!’
I think a lot of people feel that way about the world today. They wonder who is in control of this planet. But be reminded that God is in control, no matter what is happening or how things look to us.
God is landing the plane. He is bringing events to their appointed end. His prophetic timetable happens to be exactly right on schedule.
I hope you all will have a good summer. But what will make it a good summer? Good summers don’t usually just happen all by themselves. So what are you going to do so that at the end of summer, you will hopefully be able to say: ‘that was a great summer!’ Part of the answer is by setting great goals for yourself or family. No matter what your age or station in life, always have some great goals you are pursuing.
