I Will Not Be Shaken

truth be told, some days i just don’t want to move. i’m so tired. beaten down by the every day things while still trying to deal with the fringe that seems to constantly cover me.
i was woken up out of a sound sleep the other night with 3 words ringing in my ear. no significance to me but i was not able to go back to sleep until i wrestled with them for a little bit … “shaken not stirred” … hmmm … this is what i came up with:

sometimes i think i am shaken. everything jumbled, harshly mixed up, no order, choppy. comes with a headache and a wondering of what goes where, nothing is in order, nothing makes sense. 

on the other hand, i am stirred. smoothly mixed, with purpose and with an Instrument not under my control. designed to be mixed and smoothed out, for Him. everything blended into one while the whirling takes place. no headache but dizzy from the ride.

He has a purpose for everything. i will gladly choose to be stirred not shaken, any day!

for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose. ‭Philippians‬ ‭2:13‬

In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, Ephesians‬ ‭1:11‬

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. ‭Romans‬ ‭8:28‬
