Disturb Us, Lord

Melissa posted this poem on the LPM blog a few weeks ago. Sometimes the vision gets cloudy then the Lord will use a scripture, a word from someone, a song, or even a poem to help us to re-focus. This is one of those type of poems.

Disturb Us, Lord, when
We are too well pleased with ourselves.
When our dreams have come true
Because we have 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 wider 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 into the future
In strength, courage, hope and love.

(Sir Francis Drake)

Do you need a little something to set your mind on worshipping the Lord this morning?! Click on this link The LPM Blog then scroll down to the Sept. 1st post about the simulcast and watch the video. It's beautiful to watch, but don't miss the words to the song.

The redeemed will sing forever, Jesus saves! Hallelujah!
