When in training I had wondered how it would work having a big dog with me onboard the airplane. I would be flying home with McQueen from the Guide Dogs of the Desert school and trying him out for the first time in airports. The trainers told me that he would just sit under my feet and ride there keeping his tail free from being run over by the drink cart. I couldn't imagine what that might look like, but they assured me that it would work and that McQueen would fit. Sure enough, he fits. McQueen squeezes his 80+ pound body under the seat in front of me with his head laying on my feet.
How well does he travel you might ask? Better than some children. He usually sleeps the whole ride (which is his favorite thing to do anyhow). He rests at my feet through the whole experience of take off and landing. When we hit turbulence, McQueen inches in as close as he can to my feet. It seems like the closer he can get to me, the more peace he feels.
This sounds a lot like the relationship I have with my Lord Jesus Christ. In the comparison, I'm the dog. I enjoy resting at Christ's feet. When fears alarm me, I can squeeze into Jesus as close as I like and He gives peace. I pray that you too know the peace and rest that comes from having Jesus as your Saviour and being close to Him as your Friend.
