My final blog observation from my recent gliding experience (this will be my last gliding related blog… for now) is about rising on thermals.

This was one of the main things I wanted to experience in my gliding adventure but, ironically, was actually the thing that cut the experience short… but teaching me something along the way!

What I had not anticipated was that in order to rise on a thermal, the pilot would circle the glider round and round many times – if I’d known this in advance I might’ve thought to take an anti-sickness tablet prior to the flight!!!

Here’s the thing though… before we knew it, we had risen 500 feet higher than where the aeroplane had dropped us off. What had felt to me like just going round and round in circles was actually what took us higher.

Maybe you feel like your life is going round in circles? Maybe God is actually taking you higher!

I pray that you would know today that God is at work in every situation in your life (maybe even the things that make you nauseous) to take you to a greater level of who He has made you to be.
