Linking up with Lisa Jo for 5 minutes of free writing....unscripted, unedited (ugh!)....the word this week is: Here.
Vertigo: the illusion that you or your surroundings are moving.
An illusion. Deception. That's what vertigo amounts to.
You are not moving, objects are not spinning. You are upright although your body feels upside down and sideways all at the same time.
Life feels this same way at times. Things are spinning. Things are changing. Things appear to be upside down. Your soul feels restless, out of sorts.
It is an illusion. Deception by the devil. A tool in his tool box that goes back to the beginning of time.
If you are His child, have no fear. Your soul can not be shaken. You are redeemed by the blood of Christ and that will not change.
Even while life changes happen you need to be at peace. Keep God as the center of your being, your gyroscope in the world and no matter what outward circumstances look like, inward circumstances will not change.
Just as Mary stood at the foot of the cross when her God man was crucified, so you can stand here in this promise.
PS...I have to explore this idea of spiritual vertigo more!
