Last month TransAsia airways Flight GE222 crashed while attempting to land on the resort island of Penghu in Taiwan. The accident took the lives of 48 people. There were 10 survivors of the crash, including 34-year-old Hung Yu-ting. Hung escaped the wreckage through a hole in the fuselage. She then made her way to a nearby home where she used the telephone to call her father, who fortunately lived just a few hundred yards from the crash site. Hung asked that her father come right away to get her.
It isn’t always the case that our earthly father will be so near at the time of our greatest disaster. However, our heavenly Father is always close by, and he is always available to help us, any time we call on him.
“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me…”—Psalm 23:4.
