Today I had a kind of surreal moment. We had a special guest in church today. Teen Challenge from Davie, Florida. Director Rick Fernandez and I have been friends for nearly 23 years. When I came to Coral Springs, he has just arrived as the new director. Both of us were in the same boat. Struggling with organizations who needed inspiration.
I had just arrived from Central Florida where I served as an associate/youth pastor. I didn't know much, but one thing I remember was a slogan that the pastor used to inspire people. He got it from the senior pastor he used to work for in West Virgina.
Vision Becoming Reality
I had made a banner with the same phrase on it. Ricky saw it and took a picture of it with his group. In today's service, Rick said that was the one thing that inspired him in those early days. I was floored. Today they have a wonderful center of women located on 2 acres. That was a long time ago and vision is still becoming reality.
What vision has God given you? Did you know that He wants it to become a reality as much as you do?
PRAY: Dear Jesus, what do you want to become a reality in my life today? AMEN
