About the Wilder Waters Abstract
I love the water, and while I'm mostly (by location) a Lake-girl, the vast and beautiful Ocean (and my friends near it!) has a big piece of my heart. At first, this painting was of serene water. However, after coming home from a date night on night, I saw this painting on my dining table and just knew it needed something more. I was painting pretty much in a post-bedtime dark house, so when I woke up and saw this painting the next morning, it was kind of surprised at what I saw! Apparently, the Lord was intending this painting to be of wilder waters than the ones I was imagining! The Disturb Us, Lord poem is also available.
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.
