Have Faith : विश्वास रखें
He was on a long flight. The first warning of the approaching problems came when the sign on the airplane flashed on: "We shall not be serving the beverages at this time as we are expecting a little turbulence. Please be sure your seat belt is fastened."
As he looked, it became obvious that many of the passengers were becoming apprehensive. Later, the announcer said, "We are so sorry that we are unable to serve the meal. The turbulence is still ahead of us."
And then the storm broke. The ominous cracks of thunder could be heard. Lightening lit up the darkening skies and within moments that great plane was like a cork tossed around on a celestial ocean. One moment the airplane was lifted on terrific currents of air; the next, it dropped as if it were about to crash.
He confessed that he shared the discomfort and fear of those around him. Nearly all the passengers were upset and alarmed. Some were praying. The future seemed ominous and many were wondering if they would make it through the storm.
And then, he saw a girl to whom the storm meant nothing. She had tucked her feet beneath her as she sat on her seat and was reading a book. Everything within her small world was calm and orderly. Sometimes she closed her eyes, then she would read again; then she would straighten her legs, but worry and fear were not in her world.
When the plane was being buffeted by the terrible storm, when it lurched this way and that, as it rose and fell with frightening severity, when all the adults were scared half to death, that marvelous child was completely composed and unafraid.
He couldn't believe his eyes. When the plane finally reached its destination and all the passengers were hurrying to disembark, he lingered to speak to the girl whom he had watched for such a long time.
Having commented about the storm, he asked why she had not been afraid.
The sweet child replied, "Sir, my Dad is the pilot and he is taking me home."
When you have faith in the Savior, your confident level is steady and you you do it
