In the last couple of months I’ve spoken several times about how I’ve felt as if I’m running on auto pilot. But do you understand what i mean?
A pilot is normally associated with aeroplanes, however a pilot is really just described as someone who leads or guides. So for me what that meant was, I was going through the motions, doing and saying all the things I was supposed to without really feeling as though I was really there or really in control of what I was saying or doing…I was there in person but my mind was definitely elsewhere thinking about my Dad and my Aunt Mae who died within 6 weeks of one another earlier this year.
I am just thankful that particularly in these last couple of months, I’ve had a great pilot to guide me…Jesus!
I’m reminded of a chorus we used to sing:I have a pilot who guides me Night and day; Through cloud and sunshine I trust him, Come what may. Dangers may threaten but I never fear; I’m full of confidence while he is near; I have a pilot who guides me Along life’s way.
I have certainly found those words reassuring in the last while, I hope you do too.
