Life in a snowglobe

Last week, I was having lunch with a friend and I realized, as I was describing to her what life was like right now, that my life is like being in a snowglobe. It seems like someone has picked up my world and shook it, sending everything flying all around me. Everything is spinning around and changing before my eyes. However, I myself have not gone anywhere because my feet are firmly planted on the rock of the snowglobe. I have my feet planted on Christ. So it doesn't matter what happens around me, I am stable. The world may be spinning and changing right before my eyes, but I trust that I will not be moved and that eventually everything will settle down. And when things settle down, they may look differently than before, but that's ok. My feet will still be planted firmly on The Rock!

On Christ, the solid rock I stand. All other ground is sinking sand.
