"In God's perfect timing", is the usual answer of most cabin crew aspirants when we ask them when they will become a flight attendant. I couldn't agree more with them. Indeed, their time will come in God's perfect timing, and this time will all depend on them. As you see, we pray to be a flight attendant, but before it is granted, God answers our prayers by first making sure we are ready to take on the job.
How then will God grant our wish to be flight attendants? If He feels that it is meant for you as early as now, then applying may be a breeze and you may get it in one shot. If He feels you are not yet read though, trials come your way, not to stop you, but to mold you to be a cabin crew. You may be pushed to the ground and to the limit, not only to prepare you for the job, but to also prepare your character, emotions, mindset, and physically for a cabin crew lifestyle. He may teach you lessons on humility, He may give you tough trials for you to change for the better, and until you change, He will never grant it just yet.
Your time will come when you are ready, and that is God's way of answering your flight attendant prayers. When we say "my time will come to be a flight attendant", that simply means "my time will come to be a flight attendant after God has prepared me".
So when you face challenges and trials in your journey to be a cabin crew, always remember that God is simply preparing you, and that is His perfect time for you.
Never forget, in His time, and not ours.
Good luck future flight attendant!
