“If God has birthed a vision in your heart, the day will come when you will be called upon to make a sacrifice to achieve it. And you will have to make the sacrifice with no guarantee of success…Obey God at all costs. Hold your vision in an open hand. And watch for him to intervene. A true visionary does not try to control their vision – they pursue it.”
Andy Stanley in Visioneering; God’s Blueprint for Developing and Maintaining Vision
Emily and I read this quote during our phase II training. It has brought us much encouragement as we contemplate the next steps for our family. We just met with a Realtor about selling our house. In our minds this step has officially stepped us out into the unknown. It is extremely exciting and frightening at the same time. But we know that God is good and his faithfulness will always remain no matter what the future holds.
I wonder what this quote means in your life?
