-A quote, question, and some music to brighten your day

"Disturb us, O Lord, when we are too pleased with ourselves; when our dreams come true because we dreamed too little; when we have arrived in safety because we have sailed too close to the shore. Disturb us, O Lord, when with the abundance of the things we possess, we have lost our thirst for the water of life; when having fallen in love with time, we have ceased to dream of eternity: and in our efforts to build the new earth, have allowed our vision of the new heaven to grow dim. Stir us, O Lord, to dare more boldly, to venture on wider seas where storms shall show thy mystery and, where losing sight of the land, we shall find the stars. In the name of Him who pushed back the horizons of our hopes and invited the brave to follow, even the name of Christ Jesus Our Lord."
Sir Francis Drake

Here is our thought provoking question for the day. If you have any thoughts, feel free to share them in a comment below.

How important is it for us to dwell in God's love on a daily basis, if we expect to grow in our Christian walk? Why? How does it affect and change us? Would you agree or disagree with the statement that "the love of God is the soul of the gospel"?

Have a delightful day,
