Feeling Tomorrow Today (thoughts on preparation)

Posted on July 27, 2012


One of the gifts of visionary leaders is the ability to feel things in advance. Leaders see things in advance and then figure out ways to get a group of people to that point. This is probably one of the biggest areas of growth for me since we started Center City Church.

I know where I want to us be next year. I know where I want to be in six months. But I’ve learned that just because I’m feeling something for tomorrow doesn’t mean that we will arrive there today. I have work to do today that will prepare our church family for tomorrow.

Seasons are a funny thing. I have learned (and continue to learn) that the actions of today lead to the health of tomorrow. So that’s where I find my motivation for the current season that we are in at Center City. I believe that I am putting my hands to work today on things that will be realized in the next several months.

Don’t neglect today’s work in the hopes of tomorrow’s blessings. I am grateful for so many that have spoken into my life to let me know it’s ok to have a vision for the future as long as steps are being taken today to get there in a healthy way with a firm foundation.

What are you working on today that will bring to pass what you see and feel in your heart for tomorrow?
