Hey guys! I have some great tips for some of you who struggle with this certain area. This frustrating field is that of “getting carsick”. First tip: Don’t move from flat land to reeeally hilly/mountainous land, like from Texas to Pennsylvania. There’s no good transition there.
Secondly, don’t try to text anybody or change the time zone on your iPod, because that’s a really bad idea. Don’t even try it to prove that I’m right.
Third, don’t close your eyes. That just makes it WORSE. Want to know how I know all of these things? Can you say “lots of personal experience”?
Ok, so now serious. 🙂 I get motion sick, and a form of it is getting carsick. I can’t read, do something that requires looking down, etc. So today, I had an hour car ride through the hilly back roads, and for me it was not fun. But, I discovered a tactic that helped temporarily. I was able to stare at the sky (which was so beautiful… I get side-tracked easily), and that eased the churning of the brain and stomach somewhat. Since I get side-tracked so easily, I’m also prone to find serious tips out of odd object lessons. My weird brain suddenly compared the carsickness and keeping my eyes fixed on the sky, to that of life being so crazy and chaotic, and keeping my eyes fixed on the Lord.
There are seriously days when it’s like life is just whizzing by, everything’s happening so fast, and there’s no way to slow it down. Nothing seems to be steady or stable, and it’s a chaotic craziness that sometimes seems like it won’t end. Keep your eyes steadily fixed on the Lord. He is the only thing that will never change, and that’s the only stable, steady thing that we can really hold on to. I know y’all already know this, but I’ve heard it for forever, too, and I still need that reminder. When life is whizzing by and you can’t slow it down, keep your eyes on the Lord; He is the only thing that we can hold on to that will never change.
