Katie's FB update ...

"Disturb us, Lord, when we are too well pleased with ourselves. When our dreams come true because we dreamed too little. When we arrive safely because we have sailed too close to the shore. Disturb us, Lord."
-Sir Francis Drake

There is a lot to think about in this comment ... I don't want to dream to LITTLE and I don't want to be so close to the SHORE than I don't absolutely have a need for the LORD ... I SIMPLY WANT TO BE DROWNING IN NEED FOR HIM ... He gives my days clarity and direction (WHEN I LET HIM) ... It is a choice each to desire Him in a country that gives us so many THINGS ... It is easy to lose that URGENCY AND DESIRE for Him if we are not careful ... Being w/ Katie last week was refreshing, refueling, and SCARY ... Her daily life is so much more than I could handle everyday and yet she does it EVERYDAY and I know why ... She swims in the deep end and dreams big AND IS ALWAYS DISTURB BY THE THINGS THAT DISTURB THE LORD !!! 


thankful to have people in my life that get it and hope that I can encourage others to JUMP ON IN !!!
