A sure sign that things are not well between a husband and wife is when he comes home and after two or three attempts to greet her, he’s met with a neutral acknowledgement of his presence. That something is seriously wrong can be quickly confirmed with a simple question, “honey, what’s wrong?” If the response is, “nothing”, you can bet your last dollar, something is wrong. Until that silence is broken and silence is replaced with some provocative words, its going to be a cold evening in the household for quite some time. The best thing to do is to stir up a conversation to arrive at the conflict resolution before a perfectly wonderful evening is spoiled by unspoken tension.

Stirring things up within our life is just like stirring up certain dishes when cooking for example grits. If you have ever cooked grits, you know that the key ingredient to having the grits turn out the way that you want them is to constantly stir them. If you don't stir them, they will get lumpy and they won't turn out the way you want. This is how it is within our lives. We have to continue to stir up moments so that they don't become lumpy grits that we don't want to eat.

In the bible, it speaks of spurring one another towards love and good deeds (Hebrews 10:24). This is what God wants us to do in order to reach our goals and live life abundantly. He knows that we are going to have trying times within our life. He knows that things are going to get a little difficult. This is why he tells us to stir things up. Don't let the grits get lumpy. Take the time to stir them up so that you can enjoy your meal. Stir up your life so that you can enjoy it as God intended for you.

Here is your weekly challenge, the next time you are having your morning coffee (if you are not a coffee drinker, substitute tea) and you have added your sugar and creme, don't stir it up just drink it and see what it taste like. This is how your life will be if you don't stir it up. Blessings to you all.
