Disturbing?

The following is a truly amazing poem written by the explorer, Sir Francis Drake. It carries the cool title: "Disturb us Lord".  What I love about this is the concept of dreaming bigger and larger.  For most of us, just getting through tx is a pretty big dream.  And that's legit.  But when we get the chance, we should dream outrageously and... well, like the man says: "Losing sight of land, we shall find the stars!"  Give it read.    J
 
Disturb us, Lord, when We are too pleased with ourselves, When our dreams have come true Because we dreamed too little, When we arrived safely Because we sailed too close to the shore.   Disturb us, Lord, when With the abundance of things we possess We have lost our thirst For the waters of life; Having fallen in love with life, We have ceased to dream of eternity And in our efforts to build a new earth, We have allowed our vision Of the new Heaven to dim. Disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly, To venture on wilder seas Where storms will show Your mastery; Where losing sight of land, We shall find the stars. We ask you to push back The horizons of our hopes; And to push back the future In strength, courage, hope, and love. This we ask in the name of our Captain, Who is Jesus Christ.
