Out of Control or Not?!?!

Spinning Out of Control
Have you ever felt like life was spinning
out of you would be
thrown off of the proverbial
"merry-go-round of life" so to
speak any second? I know the
feeling. I have felt that way
many times before.
It is only after careful
consideration of all the "things" 
in my everyday life that clutter
up my mind that, I am able to 
take a deep breath & stop  for a
moment...even if it means
dragging my feet on the asphalt to
come to a screeching halt, that I
realize how much more is going
on in the world around me than
just the menagarie in my head.
Every day new life has made its
way into the world through the
birth of a new-born child.
Everyday there are occasions to
stop and spend a moment in
quiet give true
thankfulness for the gifts so
freely bequeathed unto me.
Everywhere I look around me,
there are blessings that I don't
deserve, yet still were graciously
bestowed upon me by my
heavenly Father.
He alone, can stop my mind
from spinning
out of control...from seeing
only the spiraling & reeling back 
& forth between the known
& the unknown-which leads to
fear, anxiety and self-doubt.
That is when He brings back the
scripture to my mind
that is threatening
to spin out of control:
"Great peace have they which love
your law and nothing can make
them stumble." (Psalms 119:165 NIV)
This one simple scripture assures me
that when my mind seems to be
spinning out of control, I can still
be grounded in the love of God...
I can allow Him to guide me when
I feel ready to stumble & fall...for
"God is my refuge & strength, a
very present help in trouble."
Psalms 46:1 (NAS)
