Actually, when I read this WORLD magazine interview with Phil Vischer (yes, the VeggieTales guy), it reminded me so much of my own process of wrestling with a dream. It also reminded me how easy it is to lose sight of your core values in pursuit of that dream.
In the interview, Vischer relates that as his Big Idea company became successful, it quickly took on a life of its own and he soon found himself ambitious in all the wrong ways. Eventually in 2003, the roller coaster ride ended--in bankruptcy. And Vischer lost the rights to the very characters he had created.
But it's just like our God to give second chances, and so several tumultuous years later, a humbled Vischer is starting over, this time with different governing dynamics and a commitment to let God lead. The lesson for us is this: go ahead, dream big but make sure that you remember who gave you the dream in the first place and trust Him make it a reality.
