From Here to There

“Vision,” by definition, requires anticipation of things that are not yet real. It’s the ability to look past the moment and see in your heart and mind what’s possible. God gives visions in the Bible (sometimes literally) to communicate His redemptive plan. That’s still true today. Yet when God gives a vision, He usually doesn’t include a detailed roadmap. Rather, the Lord asks us to “walk by faith and not by sight.” Faith in the His sovereignty, wisdom, and goodness. Faith that He is in us through Christ. Faith that He will use each right step to accomplish His purpose — and redeem the missteps. Faith that He knew what He was doing by giving you the vision in the first place!  Read

Course Adjustment

Over the last year or so, the Lord has been been revealing and refining a vision in my heart: using media and technology to accelerate movements of disciples making disciples in communities, cities, and regions worldwide. This vision is far bigger than me, and quite daunting… I honestly have no idea about the how, only the Who. As with any big step of faith, there’s bound to be twists and turns, setbacks and jumps forward that must be taken in stride.  Read
