Vertigo- either physical or spiritual – throws me into a space of uneasiness.
The world is spinning around me. The intensity of perceived movement creates a nausea that reaches down to my soul. My heart thumps rapidly as I wonder if it will stop.
God, you are that spot in the horizon that helps me gain perspective. You are the foundation in a world that seems wobbly. Give me the clarity to find slower and more steady spaces surrounding me.
