Vision … is essential for survival. (Charles Swindoll, pastor and author)

Swindoll continues: “[Vision] is spawned by faith, sustained by hope, sparked by imagination and strengthened by enthusiasm. It is greater than sight, deeper than a dream, broader than an idea.” We all like to see the end before we begin, but that takes faith and is accomplished by persistent effort.

Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it. (Habakkuk 2:2)
