What’s you passion?
I remember a fantastic meeting 2 years ago when someone had a picture of Jesus riding in on a exciting, great, wild and fantastic horse, with a flock of wild horses, calling us to ride with him, and he with us, in an adventure of faith. A journey into the unknown over the hill to reach the lost, hurting, lonely and broken.
What is your wild horse?
What is it that God has put on your heart? And will you ride out your horse with Jesus?
Take a moment to think what it is the dream, the song, the longing within your heart?
Is it the dream of God within you?
Is this going to be a dream that remains a ‘nice idea’ or ‘a dream’ that with Christ will seek and strive to see it come into being, becoming reality, riding that adventure of faith beyond the horizon of our comfort zones.
I’ll leave us with a great prayer attributed to Sir Francis Drake…
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.
