Ministry Musings 2009 - Vision & Progress

With 2009 drawing to a close, I think it's a good time to share some ministry observations I've revealed over the past year in the form of status updates posted on my Facebook profile. This post is the first of 3 and its theme is "Vision and Progress".

"We can’t just see things as they are, but what they can be, and how we can help make it happen."

"True vision cuts through the clutter of opinions, arguments, & agendas to see God's purpose for our life and ministry."

"Ideas with the absence of initiative are completely worthless."

"Authentic Vision is realizing what God has shown you, and acknowledging what He hasn't. Doing what someone else thinks you ought to do will always hinder the things God has actually purposed for you to do."

"Don't ask for opportunity if you're not ready and willing to seize it."

"Age isn't always an accurate indicator of wisdom. God bestows wisdom & vision on some beyond their years. So before you cast aside the contributions of someone because they have yet to live the "full life" you have, beware. You may be casting aside the very instrument God has ordained to spearhead a great Kingdom movement that would impact many, including yourself."

"Ministry is something like owning a house: for you to move on, someone has got to move in, and both come with a cost."
