Stepping Stones: Does the World Make You Dizzy?

Stepping Stones: Does the World Make You Dizzy?

Transformational Tip

On the playground, there was a ride that was a bout 15 feet in diameter and you could spin it really fast. It was a lot of fun whizzing around, but then I would be really dizzy. One day, I was told to fix my eyes on a certain point(a tree was easiest) while you are spinning around and I didn’t get dizzy anymore. The world is changing faster than we can measure…that’s an understatement. It is a time of instability, yet we have this yearning for permanence; for that eternal, invisible reality. Yearning for permanence is a good thing. It will keep us from getting distracted then dizzy spinning around the merry-go-round of life. A lot of times we feel permanence is too predictable, expected, conventional, even boring. We think spontaneity, surprise, new, different, unique is more desirable, exciting and soothing. Interesting though when we go on vacation, we don’t sleep as well, have some GI upset, need a nap, feel a little discombobulated, and then come back home and don’t feel rested. Lots of people bring sleeping pills, tums, or other GI meds to help get them through vacation. It’s because we are out of our routine. We lose site of what is steady and true.
Today, if and when you feel you are on wobbly ground, turn to the only place where you will find a firm place to stand. Know He has stood the test of time, is dependable and wants to stabilize your mind and heart. Turn to the one who never changes, your Lord. As you stand on the foundation He has provided, you can watch the world change with an entirely different perspective.

Dear Father,
I know that in this time of unrelenting change that You are the one who never changes…You are the Alpha and the Omega. Sometimes my head spins with all the changes in the world going on around me. The more I focus on the changes the more unsteady I become. While I long for stability and permanence I know I will not find it in this world. I turn to You Father. I know only You can give me a firm place to stand. Draw near to me and my seeking heart.
I pray in the name of the Rock of my Salvation, Jesus – AMEN!

The Truth
He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life.”
Revelation 21:6
The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
Psalm 18:2
