I first had the idea of launching a one minute radio program teaching Biblical time management in 1986. But our first program didn’t air until 2003. So what was happening during those 17 years in between?
Most Christians would look back and say, “Well, it just wasn’t God timing.” But I’m not so sure that’s true. I believe many times we miss opportunities to launch new ventures to advance God’s Kingdom simply because we fail to do the focused praying and planning necessary to make it happen.
In 2002 I spent an afternoon in a hotel room in Carson City Nevada seeking God for a strategy to launch the program. I did my thinking on paper that day, and as best I could, determined the pathway God would have me take. Within months, over 500 stations were carrying the program.
Maybe you need a Carson City hotel moment for your dream project. If so, don’t waste 17 years like I did. Do it today so you’ll redeem the time.
