Off balance

You know that feeling you get when you've gone on a really fast roller coaster with twists and turn and loops that make you feel all dizzy? It's a good feeling for a minute or two but then your adrenaline kicks in and everything feels normal again. Imagine having that dizzy feeling for several days. Every time you turn your head, stand up or sit down you feel like you're back on the roller coaster. Unfortunately, that is exactly what my last week has been like. Swelling in my inner ear created an issue with my equilibrium and gave me the 'fresh off the roller coaster' feeling for 4 days!

I've not always been a fan of roller coasters, but I have always enjoyed spinning and twirling! I remember as a little girl I loved to spin on the carousel playground equipment. I would shriek in delight as my playmates spun me faster and faster until the world was just a huge blur. I learned that all I needed to do to make the world stop spinning was put my feet on the ground. The world would suddenly stop spinning (although the headache would hang on for another half hour or so).

I have the same opportunity today that I did as a little girl. When my world is spinning out of control and I'm feeling disoriented and confused, I speak God's word over the situation. God is my foundation so speaking His truth grounds me again. The spinning stops and things begin to make sense. This past week anytime I was feeling dizzy and out of control I just put my foot on the ground and thanked God for providing firm foundation. I felt centered again and the spinning stopped.

Have you been feeling dizzy lately? Are situations in your life spinning beyond your control? Do you feel off balance and disoriented? God's got a cure for that! Ask Him to give you scripture to hold onto so you can be instantly grounded in Him when you begin to feel disoriented. The roller coaster of life can make your head spin, be sure you know exactly Who grounds you!

Be blessed,
Jennifer
