“The best work we can do is so important, so big, so visionary, that it cannot be completed in a lifetime” –Mel Lawrenz

As you approach the New Year, how do you see things?  Do you have telescopic vision?  What I mean to ask is, can you see the entire year?  Look at your calendar and start making plans for the ending as well as the beginning.  Vision requires seeing things far off.  Mel Lawrenz said, “Sometimes, instead of asking if our vision is big enough, we should be asking, is it far enough? The best work we can do is so big, so important, so visionary, that it cannot be completed in a lifetime.”

As another year begins, look at the end, not just the beginning.  Anyone can look ahead far enough to see the starting line, but only those with the right kind of patience, strength, vision, and fortitude will see the finish line.  See the big picture and plan accordingly.

Look through the telescope at each month, each week, and each day.  What do you want to accomplish?  Where do you want to be in a year’s time?  What about five years from now, or ten, or twenty?  Pray and plan something so big that it is bound to fail unless God intervenes.

E. Paul Hovey said, “A blind man’s world is bound by the limitations of his touch; an ignorant man’s world by the limit of his knowledge; but a great man’s world is bound by the limitation of his vision.”
