Think of a car driving on a curvy mountain road. There are two items on the dashboard: a bobblehead and a compass.
With each turn or bump, the bobblehead shakes and wiggles wildly. It is designed to exaggerate the motion of the vehicle and has no focal point to remain steady upon.
The compass, on the other hand, is designed to remain steady on one point, and that one point alone. Yes, a bump will shake it up a bit and it will take a few moments to regain its bearings. But its magnets will alwyas pull it northward again.
If you are in Christ, you are designed to be a compass, not a bobblehead. You have a focal point, so though bumps and turns may shake you up a bit, your motion is not controlled by your situation. You are rooted in Christ, so let the magnets of his grace pull you in the right direction no matter what hits you: to Him.
