Once while I was working as an airline flight attendant, one of our jet's engines exploded at 36,000 feet. I was so busy helping to calm others, that I did not think about being afraid. We landed safely, but there were four large holes in the fuselage; and it had been a close call. I developed a sudden fear of flying, which was not at all good because I did not want to quit my work.

I reached out to God to help me, and this passage from the Bible came to me: "The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms" (Deut. 33:27). I held to that statement as a spiritual law governing everyone. On each flight I felt safer, as if someone were holding my hand. Then I began to understand I had always been supported by God's almighty hand. I continued praying and working all my scheduled flights, confident that God would destroy my fear. In a few weeks it was gone, and I enjoyed working with the airline for three more years.
