Dawn, in an article for Campus Life magazine, Susan Smart describes her third and nearly last solo flight. She had been practicing a maneuver at 5,000 feet when she lost control and her Cessna 150 began spinning wildly toward earth. After several seconds of panic, she recalled her instructor's words: "If you ever go into a spin in a Cessna 150, just let go of the controls. It's built to fly on its own." Susan shouted to herself several times, "let go!" Finally, she yanked her hands from the controls and covered her face. After some wild yawing and pitching, the plane returned to level flight. She had fallen more then half a mile, but she survived because she had the faith to let go. Her experience vividly illustrates what it means to trust God in a time of crisis.
I know that's hard to do when it feels as if everything in our lives is spinning wildly out of control. Our feelings cry out for us to panic, to doubt His promises, to ignore or disobey His instructions and to try to solve things without Him. Dawn, I don't know how much faith you have? I have been going through a very trying time with ch and shadows for almost seven months. If it weren't for my faith and some of the people on this message board I think I would have ended my life two months ago. Bottom line is I won't give up, no matter how much pain I must endure! I'm learning to let go and asking for His help.
