Have you ever had one of those dreams where you’re falling? It seems so real despite the fact that you’re laying on your bed only 2 feet off the floor. The sensation you feel seems real, though it’s so very untrue. It’s only your imagination stirring fear.
Sometimes it feels as if we are being tumbled through our day, falling endlessly into a dark abyss without any comfort, or tossed on a sea without rest or safety. “When will it end?” we ask.
For the child of God, the answer is that you’re not really falling. It’s simply the way it feels in your imagination. The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms (Deuteronomy 33:27).
