Dick Weidner, of the Legacy Ventures Network (a partner with IBEC), shared the following quote from George Barna’s book The Power of Vision. It seems to be a wonderful thought for the start of the new year.

“There is great power in dreaming big. God’s vision for your life is grand. It is not likely to
be accomplished in a year or two. Once you grasp His vision, it will outlive you. Your role
is to grasp it, articulate it and see that it gets acted upon. Your responsibility is not to see
that it comes to a conclusion. Work toward that end, but do not feel incomplete if it is not
fully accomplished in your lifetime. Along the way, simply being part of making that vision
become reality will earn sufficient reward.
Dreaming big, through God’s enablement, is also one means of allowing the church to see
and to follow God’s power and majesty. His desires are so much better and more
meaningful than our own, and when we envision them, and fully support them, the
spiritual and emotional empowerment is incredible. People become genuinely excited over
grand possibilities. The magnitude of the task is dwarfed by the realization that He wants
to do it. He intends to make it happen through us.”
