Chapter 17 - The Very Next Choice We Make

"Unsettle Me"

I do think this could have been the title for this chapter. 

We can get too "settled" into our daily lives.  We let the "routine" of life take over our days, nights, time off, etc.  But let something break into that routine and we began to wince, sigh, moan, ok.......complain, stomp our feet, throw up our hands.....and then, maybe then, we cry out to God.

Don't get me wrong here.  I too like to be comfortable.  I enjoy a day that flows in peace, children that obey, husband that conforms (smiling here), dogs that are truly housebroke, budget that works, etc....you get the picture.  But in all reality, it's when those things get out of sync I realize my need to move closer to Him.  It's when your cup gets "unsettled"  that you can really see what's in that cup.

My prayer for you today is that you will read and re-read Lysa's prayer and add to it where you know He needs to unsettle you.

I'm not sure I have much to add to what you have here. I don't like to be unsettled either. It takes courage to utter such a prayer, "Unsettle me."
