As much as I enjoy 007 movies, no this is not about James Bond or how you like your martinis.

There is a lot of bad stuff that happens in our world – war, famine, disease, abuse, neglect. And perhaps closer to home – rejection, job losses, financial uncertainty, broken relationships, and more.

There are two ways we can respond to it…

We can allow our faith and our hope to be shaken.

We can throw our hands up and say, “Where is God?!? How could He let this happen?!? Life stinks and it’s not getting any better!


We can be stirred.

We can know that there is hope… We are the hope. Ordinary people are making a difference one day at a time, one person at a time.

When confronted by your own personal problems or the problems of this world, will you be shaken or stirred?
