Last week, I was catching a flight from an undisclosed country, while we boarded the plane and jeered to move, suddenly an announcement from the pilot came through.
It was said that there is a technical problem that the plane had suddenly encountered, that we will have to alight (after arranging all our back bags and handbags and fixing our seat belts) and board a new plane that will be arranged for us.
Most of the passengers turned out furious, disappointed, and sad. They kept complaining through their murmurs.
But something different struck me. I chose to instead appreciate the sudden and unexpected changes as a plan from God.
Then, while in the plane and on the queue of disappointed passengers, I raised my voice and said;
“Instead of y'all complaining and blaming the airline company, why not instead thank God that we haven't taken off?”
If we had been in the air and a technical problem arises, our chances of survival would have been fractionated, bifurcated, halved.
We would have had our faith decided with no feet on the ground. We would have been closer to the angels than our loved ones on the ground. We would have been breathing with our shaky lips and fidgeting heart.
They all immediately calmed the echoes of their disappointment and some part of the passengers chorused; “That's true oooo, thank God”.
We alighted, got moved by the airline buses, and a new plane was immediately arranged for us.
In peace, we landed at our destination.
Moral Of The Story:
Everything happens for a reason. The delay you have in marriage, the delay you have at your place of work, the traffic that kept you away for hours, the single minute that made your bus delayed, your wait for bearing a child your delay in getting visa, every struggle you have encountered in life, they all happen for a reason.
Instead of burying yourself in the pool of complaints, why not instead see the good sides of all these delays and appreciate God for a blessing in disguise?
I would have probably become history today if our plane had found itself in the air. Maybe it's just a single minute that kept me and others alive today.
Note: This is not a fictional story, it's a true life event that happened to me (SmilingPen), exactly a week ago. I would love to retain the name of the airline so as not to smear or tarnish their brand.
