God's Gyroscope

At certain times, over the years, I have suffered from motion sickness... as a child on a fast spinning not-so-merry-go-round! (Nausea can quickly condition one to avoid certain things!) Then, as an adult, on a cruise ship navigating 9 to 12 foot seas... Just to simply walk we were hanging on to walls and rails...quite a memory! However, far worse...on an airplane, in the middle of a thunderstorm! Or even in the seat of a larger-than-life IMAX theater!
Our sense of balance, developing even before we are born, incorporates at least 3 of our other senses and keeps us functional from morning till night, from the cradle to the grave. A well developed sense of balance, like an internal gyroscope, is crucial to our overall coordination and continued well-being. (Hopefully, keeping our tummies settled, too!)
Many frequent travelers know that keeping on eye on the horizon can help settle a rolling tummy.  The key is to pick out a focal point in the distant, keep your eye fixed on that, until a sense of balance is restored and your inner gyroscope is recalculated.
Life has a way of throwing us off balance... distracting us, distressing us and disorientating us... hence we need a strong, never-changing focal point... Jesus!
Today's devo, coming from Hebrews 12:2 tells us to "fix our eyes on Jesus, the One who never changes." (120) Why is that so important?
That is our only way to maintain a sense of balance, a sense of direction and, must likely, a good sense of humor, too!

  1. Dawn this is so true! So much in this fallen world doesn't make sense, , the world trying to mold us into its ways.But then we must look to Jesus. And we realize He knows what we are going through.: He takes our hand and gently helps us step off the merry go round and leads us to solid ground. To peace, love and security. I thank God for becoming Jesus and His work on the Cross.

  2. Well stated, Jen! Thanks for your comments and many blessings to you!
