Might a Peril be a Blessing in Disquise?

A blessing in disguise... Are you kidding? How can that be?

Well, let me tell my story about what happened in the first phase of my flight training. 


In San Jose, CA after only ten hour of flight training, I found myself in a stall while taking off from the runway. Ordinarily one can recover from a stall if the correct procedures are followed. But for a beginner, and not having gone through "stall recovery" training, it was my worse nightmare.


I had just taken off from the runway and climbed to a good altitude but noticed the plane had stopped climbling. I checked my instruments when I discovered I had applied "full flaps" and the plane would not continue to climb with full flaps on. So I did what any novice would do with little training: I immediately brought flaps up and the plane went nose down plummeting toward the ground.


I did everything I knew that might control my descent but nothing worked. It only got worse. I pulled back on the control wheel, I used right and left rudder. I moved elevator up and down. Now I have gone from being frightened to P A N I C.


When I realized there was nothing I could do to avert this impending peril, the strangest thing happened. I resolved that I was going to die; immediately, I became calm, euphoric and said to myself and God, (without fear) I am ready.


My next recollection was my crawling on the ground having been thrown out of crumpled Cessna 150 with only a scratch and a bruised ego.


Just as some of you have learned great lessons from life's perils and difficulties, I learned two significant lessons from this crash: (1) the value of recognizing "limits" before we reach the point of No Return and (2) When I get to the end of myself and trust God for the outcome, I have peace...and joy.
