Over the course of our lives we have gone through peeks and valleys of good times and bad. Its life’s natural roller coaster of highs and lows. Each of us have had many different experiences which in turn has created us to be who we are today. We all are created with a certain purpose. Our lives hold value and meaning. Throughout our journey we sometimes forget this and tend to dwell in a self centered pool. We will float along and want things to go our way or have things handed to us. Just a normal human tendency I suppose. Sometimes we are so excited about our lives, we want to share this with everyone and other times we are so disappointed with our lives we tend to pull back and hide. But once again, this is all in that swimming pool of our self centered lives.

With that being said, I have a question to ask you. Have you ever been disturbed? You know…you are doing something and someone comes along and interrupts you or stops you. Sometimes its a good thing…you needed a break and sometimes it just annoys you to be disturbed. The definition of Disturbed is having had its normal pattern or function disrupted. God likes to disturb us sometimes….when we get comfortable within our every day, day to day lifestyles, he will come along and disturb us. It’s his way of pushing us out of our norm. To push us to grow. If we were to stay in the same place all the time, how would be have the opportunity to become better. To be better.

So when you get disturbed sometimes, maybe you need to stop and listen a moment and hear what God is speaking. Of everything in this world, He is the one we need to be disturbed the most by. Being disturbed out of our self centered lives helps us and reminds us of the bigger picture. Life truly isn’t about us…it’s about what is not us. Taking ourselves out of the equation and seeing what we can do to give back and offer others is one of the keys in a successful life. Remember that you get to experience what you bring to any relationship…..in all facets of life.

Psalm 43:5
Why, my soul, are you downcast?
Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,
for I will yet praise him,
my Savior and my God.

Peace and luvs to ya.
