I took time today to prayerfully reflect on the vision of IAFR, asking God to help me see what he intends to do in and through IAFR so that I can be sure that our organizational compass is pointing us in the right direction.
I don’t know about you, but taking time to think and pray about vision is hard work. While the vision might be an unmistakeable force residing in my gut, it is hard work finding words that do it justice. I have to intentionally set aside the more pressing (and often easier) demands on my time and energy and reflect on where we’ve been and where we’re going.
It’s hard work. But I know if I persevere, it carries its reward.
Notepads and flip chart paper were helpful as I thought and listened.
As I fly to Toronto tomorrow for meetings with the leadership of IAFR Canada, I had to hit the pause button on my thoughts before I found the clarity I am seeking. But I’m confident it will come when it’s time.
