I bought a four dollar eraser at Pottery Barn. They have a nice selection of desks, journals, and of course, writing utensils. I couldn't let the eraser go. It had one word on it, "delete."
My eraser reminds me of a flight simulator. When a pilot learns how to fly and has to get in all of his hours for his training, he will fly a simulator. As far as I can remember, it can take hundreds of hours for a pilot to complete his training. And when the flight doesn't go as planned, there's the delete button. Actually, the "back up" button. He can start over, at just the place where the flight took a wrong turn.
In life, we run into detours and even make some wrong turns. But God helps us to get back on track. God, in His grace, takes us where we are and moves us forward. He is the wind we need for our wings to fly again. He is the sustaining power that helps us to get through each day.
Do your wings need some wind beneath them today? Remember this, "But those who wait on the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint." Isaiah 40:31 (NKJV)
