At Catalyst, Andy Stanley quoted Michael Hammer in the quote below. I now have it in my office. This quote has challenged me about my own life vision… my dreams… my future.
When your memories exceed your dreams, the end is near.
I have a good friend (Mike). Mike is one of the most encouraging people I know. I worked with him in Albuquerque. There was this one phrase he said often that stuck with me. Anytime we were getting ready to do anything he would say, “Let’s make a memory.” Living with that mindset one is always looking toward the future. Do you live with vision or do you live with the memories?
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
