Sometimes, our lives need to shaken up. Sometimes, we need to be a little uncomfortable. Sometimes, we need to be quickened. We need to be resurrected from our pain and our suffering. We need to be resurrected from our doubt and unbelief. We need new life. We need new perspective. We need newness. The book of Psalms encourages us to ask God to quicken our souls towards God's righteousness and lovingkindness.
