musings of a hopefilled soul

Stewardship Prayer

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 have sailed to close to the shore.

Disturb us, Lord when with the abundance of the things we possess, we have lost our thirst for the water of life.

Stir us, Lord, to dare more boldly, to venture on wider seas, where storms will show your matery; where losing sight of land, we shall find the stars.  We ask your to push back the horizons of our hopes and to push us into the future in strength, courage, hope and love.

Open your hearts to the love God instills in them.  God loves you tenderly.  What he gives you is not to be kept under lock and key, but to be shared.  The more you save the less you will be able to give.  The less you have, the more you will know how to share.  Let us ask God, when it comes to ask God for something, to help us to be generous.      Mother Teresa
