Don't misread the 'holding pattern'
When you are a passenger on board a commercial airplane flight, you know that the pilots and the ground crew have your safety as their top priority. If you find your plane is in a holding pattern, you know it is for your protection, that the crew are waiting until the airspace is free for you to land safely. You don’t worry that the air tower has forgotten about you, or that you will run out of fuel before landing, or that there is no runway below, because you trust the crew cares enough to get the plane down safely. They are in charge because they have the skills to accomplish the tasks at hand.
I think this analogy can relate to our journey in life, and our relationship with God.
