Whoe Lotta Shakin' Going on

I don't know about where you live, but where  I live and in my life there's a whole lotta shakin' going on!  Heres what my friend Ron Brakin says about it at 'How shaky R U today?
I can’t think of anyone I know who is not “going through it.” Shaky job. Shaky marriage. Shaky kids. Shaky finances. Shaky health. Shaky spirit.

There’s just a whole lot of shakin’ goin’ on. Everywhere on the face of the earth.
And we are surprised.

Even after God warned us in Hebrews 12 that, “Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.” The words ‘once more’ indicate the removing of what can be shaken—that is, created things—so that what cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our ‘God is a consuming fire.’”....

.....Get it? Everything’s being shaken. But these are also wonderful words of comfort and encouragement. He’s assuring us that we don’t need to be shaky, even when everything around us is being tossed like a salad.
