“Gravity” by Landry Cantrell

“When the world is spinning out of control Your love is like my gravity. When I am overboard and going under, Your love will come and rescue me. And somehow You find a way to reach me, when I can’t see the road before me. When the world is spinning out of control Your love is like my gravity, holding me down.”

Does the world seem “out of control” to you? Whether it’s the daily news, or the latest family news, again and again we are faced with hard things that we cannot control, things that seem totally out of control. So where do we turn, when the world and our personal world is spinning out of control? This song has an answer. Turn to God’s love; know that he is in control, even when things seem out of control. It is his love that can be the gravity that holds us down, keeping us grounded in this spinning world. His love rescues us when we feel hopeless and helpless. His word comforts us in hard times. Spend some time reading the Psalms and note how David responded when he was being pursued by Saul who was ready to kill him. God’s love was his gravity, just as it is for us today. When you can’t see the road before you, trust in God’s unfailing love, just like David did.

Psalm 52:8b, 9 “I trust in God’s unfailing love for ever and ever. For what you have done, I will always praise you in the presence of your faithful people. And I will hope in your name, for your name is good.”

Questions: Is there something spinning out of control in your life right now? Will you trust in God’s unfailing love to steady you in the midst of the spin?

Prayer Power: Dear Lord, thank you for your love that holds me steady in the midst of this spinning life. Help me to always look to you and seek you in your word. Thank you for rescuing me when I’m feeling like I’m “going under.” Amen.
