Disturbed…to super-size!

Animusic – Pipe Dreams and some borrowed thoughts about dreams for a New Year

‘borrowed with great respect from

Sir Francis Drake says…

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

This is one of my favorite quotes…

In fact as a pastor or ministry leader we should be asking the Lord to disturb us. We should be asking the Lord to super-size our dream.

Is your dream “your” sized or is it “God” sized? Does it keep you up at night? Does it drive you to your knees to seek Him?

It it’s not….it’s not a God-sized dream. And it will not produce the faith necessary to glorify God. God wants us to dream dreams that only He can make happen. When that happens He is glorified and we are not.

What size is your dream? Is it disturbing you?
