_to write darkness

A man can no more diminish God’s glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, ‘darkness’ on the walls of his cell. _c.s. lewis

Disturbing In Process.

Posted by abramjanson on March 4, 2009

Passed on to me from my lovely sister.


“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 efforst to build a new earth
We have allowed oru 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.”
_Sir Francis Drake
That will preach.
Traveling mercies.
