It continues to amaze me at time, just how much some people are actually able to cram in to a single day in terms of activity and productivity, leading to completed to-do lists and putting serious dents in the tracking of completed goals.
I read an online blog post the other day on an effective method to practice to help break the cycle of procrastination and upon completing it, thought to myself, I need to find the time to do that, so that I can get more done in my day!
There is a great struggle in each one of us, between the dream-able, the do-able and reality. Yet, it's a necessary process to experience, for anyone looking to build and expand their life and what has been completed and accomplished to-date. It's a dynamic process as an individual or family; it's a frequent process in the corporate environment and a difficult process when it comes to ministry.
Often hindered by finances, resources and people, the process of figuring out what would be great to accomplish versus what can be reasonably accomplished is daunting and often very different. In addition, both need to be considered in light of one's current reality It's not that dreams are bad or impossible or should be dismissed entirely, but there is a balance and an understanding to be required as we face reality while striving for greatness. Now, more than ever, church leadership must seek the face of God during this process and His plans and will and trust that He will provide to bring about the impossible and perform the miraculous.
Pray, this #deaconThursday, as leadership and church operations cast vision and dream great dreams. May they know and understand the calling and purpose God has for them and the best way to pursue and implement plans moving forward. Pray the miraculous provision of resources and abilities, as people come together to fulfill and complete what is necessary to make dreams their new reality. Pray for grace during these times of change; that their would be a balance in the process and a continual seeking of God for His direction and sovereignty as plans unfold.
