Mark and I are on a journey. We’ve been here before, so I have a good idea of the ups and downs, as well as the destination. It’s this agonizing, yet motivating, look at our realities vs. our potential. It’s coming face to face with what we plan on doing with our limitations when we know that we serve a God without limits. It’s this phase in leadership where we sense the Holy Spirit pushing us to rethink our boundaries.
Basically, it’s that same question you’ve been asked since you were a kid…what would you do if you knew you could not fail? Here’s the dilemma…we serve a God whose agenda will not fail. Therefore, if we are in tune with that agenda, it is logical to reason that anything we attempt within that agenda is not only possible, but plausible.
It’s looking in the mirror and saying, “Am I dreaming big enough to measure up to a limitless God?” Obviously, that answer will always be no, but the question itself makes you dream far beyond where you currenly are. Although our dreams were once challenging beyond belief, the fact of the matter is, we’ve accomplished many of them. Now, once again, it’s the feeling deep inside that it’s time to dream farther, reach deeper, and believe more.
I can’t tell you, yet, the specifics of what God has for us, but I do know this, if we will submit to the process and allow God to mold and shape our hearts and minds, our limits diminish. And that goes for you as well.
