Doug Firebaugh, Author, Trainer, Network Marketing Guru once said, “The greatest thing in this world is not so much where we are, but in what direction we are moving." I fully agree with him. I have given my best to the ministry in the last ten years. I have stretched my intellectual and physical capacity and put into practice every single ministry strategy that I knew. I have seen the Lord blessing the work of my hands together with the people that I have served with. The Lord has blessed me with a wonderful team of leaders both on the national and international level. There have been good and bad moments but like Joshua, today I can faithfully say that not one of all the promises that the Lord gave me, has not been fulfilled.
Well, In Proverbs 29:18 King Solomon says, "Where there is no vision, the people perish.” Bob Moore, The Effectiveness Coach ®, author of Turning Good People into Top Talent, adds on this and says “Vision without action is a daydream, Action without vision is confusion”. Brothers and Sisters, It’s time for me to move on. History will judge me harshly if I do not take another step of faith and achieve what I wholeheartedly believe that the Lord is leading me to. I feel that I need to make a bold move and finish my studies. So my prayer and request to all my friends is that you may join me in praying for God’s will to be done in this important step in my life.
I fully agree with Lord John Dalberg Acton who said “A wise person does at once what a fool does at last. Both do the same thing, only at different times.” On the same note, Oliver Wendell Holmes said "Every day do something that will inch you closer to a better tomorrow."
Pray that God’s will may done in my life and family. Thanks for being my friend.
