We began our journey with the realization of how potential and purpose are the keys to being the essence of who we are. Now let’s discover how having a proper perspective accompanies us as we continue on this journey.
Typically a landing approach begins at least 30 minutes in advance to properly align an aircraft to land on the assigned runway. This alignment requires correct TIMING and keen FORESIGHT.
Every approach is different depending on the location, length and condition of the runway. Many adjustments must be made according to the capabilities of a particular aircraft’s rate of speed upon descent, weight and braking power to ensure a successful landing.
Airline pilots must adhere to checklists to guide them through executing initial descent, which is the first phase of landing and final approach, when only a few minutes remain before touchdown. Even though the cockpit crew possesses state of the art instruments to guide them, they must maintain visual alertness during each aspect of an approach.
THE FLIGHT PATTERN IS THE STANDARD PATH TO LAND AN AIRCRAFT AND THE APPROACH INDICATES THE INTENT TO LAND
Many factors are involved in having a proper perspective of ourselves at any phase of life. Our thought patterns, (paths) often align or misalign us with our goal of fulfilling purpose. Having a specific viewpoint has been controlled by situations during our growth process that tend to misalign our view of what we can accomplish.
We come into proper alignment when we perceive from God who we are according to Him. There is a checklist from the beginning to the end that guides us through each segment of our existence.
Our perspective is to understand that He has equipped us with capabilities to reach the appointed destination according to His plan regardless of the circumstances we encounter. It is vitally important to be vigilant to determine if our approach is centered appropriately at the right time to guarantee a wonderful landing.
Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord.” They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
