In the 1920s, the term Mayday originated and was first used by Frederick Stanley Mackford, a radio officer for London’s Croydon Airport. Its origin is French for M’aidez, which translates to help. In a state of emergency, Mayday was shouted three times, to signal signs of distress, much like other popular phrases such as “SOS”, “Houston, we’ve had a problem here”, and “Call 911”. It’s so easy to find ourselves in trouble, much by our own doing, but most times, it’s almost impossible to get out. Situation after situation, we call on others for help, but our cries often go unheard. Having our backs against the wall and not seeing any other way out, we call on mom and dad, because we just know they are going to help, but sometimes, even they don’t answer. Needless to say, it doesn’t matter which term you use, nor how many times you use it, when you call for help, God always respond! It may take Him longer than you’d like, but don’t lose hope, because your rescue is on the way.

Until next time my NOTE takers!
