Who’s in Your Control Tower?

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

They flew on a collision course.
The pilot didn’t know
Till one controller in the tower
Called to tell him so.
 
He quickly changed his altitude.
His passengers were scared.
They’d seen no sign of danger, so
They were caught unprepared.
 
Compartments broke wide open.
Things flew about, inside.
The passengers were frightened, screaming,
Fearing for their lives.
 
They had no way of knowing
That such a scary move
Was not, itself, the greatest danger.
It’s what pulled them through.
 
And life is sometimes like that
When God is in control.
It seems the worst has happened
To rock us to the core.
 
But God, in His omniscience,
Can see what lies ahead.
And rather than catastrophe
Allows a drop, instead.
 
Our limited perspective
Might lead to fear and doubt.
But we can trust God’s will and way
Will always work things out.
 
So with Him in the tower,
Faith’s always our best choice.
God knows just what He’s doing. Trust!
And listen to His voice.
 
 
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not rely on your own understanding;
think about Him in all your ways,
and He will guide you on the right paths.”
Proverbs 3:5-6 HCSB
