 It’s not that I have some sort of insight into the future regarding exactly what the days ahead hold for my mom, but I do have a hope and expectancy I have not had in a while.  And for anyone who was at the same prayer meeting I was tonight, how could you not have been stirred up?  Pretty powerful stuff! 

God can do anything, you know – far more than you could ever
Imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams!
-        Ephesians 3:20 (Message)

It can be far too easy to forget in impossible situations that I serve a God who specializes in impossibilities.  He parts seas, heals the blind, causes previously crippled legs to jump and dance, raises the dead . . . He has and does and will do so much.  Big.  Small.  Whatever it is, for Him it’s never impossible.  And because of this we really can give thanks in all things (1 Thessalonians 5:18).

I'm not sure what it says about me, that as soon as I saw the title "Stirred" and the glass of clear liquid, I thought, "But not shaken."

1. I'm far more of a James Bond fan than I realized.

2. Apparently my mind is not on things above nearly as much as it is on cinema catchphrases.

3. Anyone who mistakes what is obviously a tumbler full of water for a martini glass needs to put on her eyeglasses BEFORE booting up the computer.

So, anyway, I was not at the prayer meeting you referenced, but I do agree that we need to be stirred up by God's ability to do the impossible. And at the same time, we ought never be shaken, because He is always in control.

I actually thought of the 'shaken, not stirred' bit too! But I thought 'what the hey' and went with what I posted anyway. ;-) I like your 'stirred, but not shaken'. :-)

Thanks for commenting. I really appreciate it and I'm thankful to count you as a friend.
