Yesterday I attended a farewell service for
Rev. Laurie Haller, who has served as our District Superintendent for the last six years. Laurie's message to us yesterday was much like her ministry -one of encouragement, challenge, and inspiration. She preached from Habakkuk 2, where God instructs the prophet to 'write the vision' that God would show him. One of the first comments Laurie made was: 'you cannot be what you cannot see.' What a challenging thought!
Do you have a vision for your children's ministry? Have you prayed that God would show you what His plans are for its future? Have you written it down, so that it is plain to see? Do your co-workers know the vision, so that you are each working toward that common goal? Laurie shared four important points about vision: write it; wait for it; work toward it, and stay on course. Friends...work on your vision, because if we can see it, we can be it!
Write down clearly on tablets what I reveal to you, so that it can be read at a glance.Put it in writing, because it is not yet time for it to come true. But the time is coming quickly, and what I show you will come true. It may seem slow in coming, but wait for it; it will certainly take place, and it will not be delayed.
Habakkuk 2: 2-3
