shaken, not stirred!

I know most of you are familiar with the signature James Bond statement, “Shaken, not stirred.” Today I’m going to put a new twist on it that I hope you will remember the next time you hear it. Sometimes things go on around us that shake our faith. As I’ve said in the past few blogs, it’s easy to let life get in the way of God. A few things have happened to me lately that really shook the foundations of my faith and even tempted me to question God. My wife and I stood strong in faith though and were fortunate enough to see God come through in a way we did not expect.

One definition of stirred is “to cause to move or shift.” Although it is ok to be shaken, what is not ok is for us to allow situations to stir in our minds and convince us to give up, or to stir us into moving out from under the umbrella of God’s peace. Remember that He is bigger than you and His plan is bigger than yours.

My faith may get shaken, but I will not allow my spirit to be stirred.
