The link above is a Greek word lexicon that gives information of the word stir.
As I type I hear the words of the song:
"There's a stirring, deep within me.."
I realize that the last couple of weeks that I have been stirred by God. When we get comfortable, or complacent, or whatever, I believe that God will stir us to get …
