  • "Dream:Seize Your Tomorrow Today."
  • 00:03:09.472 --> 00:03:12.642
  • David: When we thinkof great dreamers,
  • 00:03:15.144 --> 00:03:16.846
  • we think of peoplelike George Lucas,
  • 00:03:16.879 --> 00:03:19.015
  • Elon Musk, or Walt Disney.
  • 00:03:19.048 --> 00:03:22.252
  • I mean, anyone who's seena Star Wars movie,
  • 00:03:22.285 --> 00:03:25.121
  • read about electric cars,or visited Disney World
  • 00:03:25.154 --> 00:03:28.191
  • knows that great accomplishmentsbegin with one person's
  • 00:03:28.224 --> 00:03:32.829
  • larger than life imagination.
  • 00:03:32.862 --> 00:03:36.833
  • Walt Disney's dream beganwith cartoon sketches,
  • 00:03:36.866 --> 00:03:40.670
  • two failed companies, anda borrowed book on animation.
  • 00:03:40.703 --> 00:03:45.141
  • In time, he broughtbeloved characters to life.
  • 00:03:45.174 --> 00:03:48.511
  • He created classic filmsand built Disney World,
  • 00:03:48.544 --> 00:03:52.849
  • Disneyland,and the Epcot Center.
  • 00:03:52.882 --> 00:03:56.252
  • He created the happiest placeon earth,
  • 00:03:56.286 --> 00:03:59.555
  • and became known as the manwho made dreams come true.
  • 00:03:59.589 --> 00:04:05.428
  • When Disney was diagnosedwith lung cancer,
  • 00:04:05.461 --> 00:04:08.264
  • he was still planning movies,developing theme parks,
  • 00:04:08.298 --> 00:04:11.501
  • and mulling overhis newest idea,
  • 00:04:11.534 --> 00:04:14.237
  • an experimental prototypecommunity of tomorrow, or Epcot.
  • 00:04:14.270 --> 00:04:20.343
  • As he lay on his deathbed withhis brother Roy sitting nearby,
  • 00:04:20.376 --> 00:04:23.780
  • Walt looked upat the hospital ceiling tiles,
  • 00:04:23.813 --> 00:04:27.116
  • raised his finger,and every fourth tile
  • 00:04:27.150 --> 00:04:31.120
  • he said representeda square mile.
  • 00:04:31.154 --> 00:04:33.423
  • Using that mental map,he suggested routes
  • 00:04:33.456 --> 00:04:36.659
  • for his envisioned highwaysand monorails.
  • 00:04:36.693 --> 00:04:40.797
  • Having said all that, I believeWalt Disney's dreams
  • 00:04:40.830 --> 00:04:43.066
  • were too small.
  • 00:04:43.099 --> 00:04:44.967
  • Believe it or not,you and I can dream
  • 00:04:45.001 --> 00:04:47.303
  • bigger dreams thanDisney ever conceived.
  • 00:04:47.337 --> 00:04:50.940
  • It's one thing to investone's life in a magic kingdom,
  • 00:04:50.973 --> 00:04:54.644
  • and it's quite another to playa part in the kingdom of God.
  • 00:04:54.677 --> 00:04:59.449
  • As followers of Christ,we can cultivate a dream
  • 00:04:59.482 --> 00:05:02.819
  • for our lives that outlaststhe world,
  • 00:05:02.852 --> 00:05:06.155
  • transforms time,changes eternity,
  • 00:05:06.189 --> 00:05:08.658
  • and advances his causeand his kingdom for his glory.
  • 00:05:08.691 --> 00:05:14.664
  • In fact, that's the storyof the Bible.
  • 00:05:14.697 --> 00:05:18.468
  • The Bible is filled with peoplewho saw what life could
  • 00:05:18.501 --> 00:05:22.638
  • look like in God's kingdom,and then moved forward in faith.
  • 00:05:22.672 --> 00:05:28.211
  • All these stories, the dreamsof men and women of God
  • 00:05:28.244 --> 00:05:31.714
  • thousands of years ago,still inspire and guide
  • 00:05:31.748 --> 00:05:36.386
  • and affect us more than we know.
  • 00:05:36.419 --> 00:05:39.355
  • They remind us to keep dreaming.
  • 00:05:39.389 --> 00:05:41.624
  • There's always moreout in front of us,
  • 00:05:41.657 --> 00:05:44.627
  • always a reason to look forwardto tomorrow.
  • 00:05:44.660 --> 00:05:48.831
  • By the way, when I'm talkingabout a dream,
  • 00:05:48.865 --> 00:05:52.568
  • I'm not describing a self-madevision of your life apart
  • 00:05:52.602 --> 00:05:56.372
  • from God's will.
  • 00:05:56.406 --> 00:05:58.608
  • And I'm not using the wordas the ancient prophets did,
  • 00:05:58.641 --> 00:06:01.511
  • when supernatural visionsof inspired revelation
  • 00:06:01.544 --> 00:06:04.580
  • came across them.
  • 00:06:04.614 --> 00:06:06.516
  • I'm not talking about seeingheavenly creatures
  • 00:06:06.549 --> 00:06:09.385
  • or having apocalyptic dreams.
  • 00:06:09.419 --> 00:06:11.988
  • No, instead I'm talking aboutenvisioning the next step
  • 00:06:12.021 --> 00:06:15.892
  • or the next stage of your life.
  • 00:06:15.925 --> 00:06:18.728
  • A dream or a vision is simplya picture of what you feel
  • 00:06:18.761 --> 00:06:24.400
  • God wants you to do next.
  • 00:06:24.434 --> 00:06:29.305
  • Let's talk for just a momentabout the power of a dream.
  • 00:06:29.338 --> 00:06:34.243
  • For hundreds of years,Israel had worshiped around
  • 00:06:34.277 --> 00:06:37.146
  • the frayed remainsof the tabernacle,
  • 00:06:37.180 --> 00:06:40.049
  • the elaborate tentthat was constructed
  • 00:06:40.082 --> 00:06:42.318
  • in the days of Mosesas a portable house of worship.
  • 00:06:42.351 --> 00:06:45.855
  • But now, the nationwas occupying
  • 00:06:45.888 --> 00:06:48.791
  • the land God had promised,and Jerusalem was its capital.
  • 00:06:48.825 --> 00:06:53.095
  • So, David began dreamingof a permanent place,
  • 00:06:53.129 --> 00:06:56.399
  • where people could worshipfor centuries to come.
  • 00:06:56.432 --> 00:07:00.036
  • David's story revealsthe principles
  • 00:07:00.069 --> 00:07:02.138
  • that you and I can followas we build our own dreams.
  • 00:07:02.171 --> 00:07:08.077
  • Principle number one,root your dream in history.
  • 00:07:08.110 --> 00:07:13.449
  • In 2 Samuel 7, David toldthe prophet Nathan,
  • 00:07:13.483 --> 00:07:18.754
  • "See, I dwell ina house of cedar,
  • 00:07:18.788 --> 00:07:22.425
  • but the ark of God dwellsinside tent curtains."
  • 00:07:22.458 --> 00:07:28.764
  • So, David grabbed holdof his dream
  • 00:07:28.798 --> 00:07:30.700
  • and began moving forwardto see its fulfillment.
  • 00:07:30.733 --> 00:07:33.769
  • But David's idea to builda temple didn't just poof
  • 00:07:33.803 --> 00:07:36.339
  • into his head likean exploding nebula.
  • 00:07:36.372 --> 00:07:39.509
  • Oh no, it was rootedin the history of Israel.
  • 00:07:39.542 --> 00:07:42.912
  • You see, centuries before Godtold Abraham to offer his son
  • 00:07:42.945 --> 00:07:46.649
  • Isaac as a sacrifice and burntoffering on a distant mountain.
  • 00:07:46.682 --> 00:07:51.287
  • And God was specificabout the mountain,
  • 00:07:51.320 --> 00:07:53.956
  • not just any hilltop would do.
  • 00:07:53.990 --> 00:07:56.225
  • No, it had to be Mount Moriah.
  • 00:07:56.259 --> 00:07:59.929
  • A thousand years later,when David and then Solomon
  • 00:07:59.962 --> 00:08:02.765
  • planned to buildthe Jewish temple,
  • 00:08:02.798 --> 00:08:05.167
  • they placed it on that verymountain, Mount Moriah.
  • 00:08:05.201 --> 00:08:08.738
  • David's vision for the locationof his temple had roots
  • 00:08:08.771 --> 00:08:11.574
  • as deep as Genesis 22.
  • 00:08:11.607 --> 00:08:14.544
  • It was grounded in the storyof Abraham's willingness
  • 00:08:14.577 --> 00:08:17.346
  • to sacrifice his only begottenson as a burnt offering.
  • 00:08:17.380 --> 00:08:21.751
  • And it's no coincidencethat 1.000 years after David,
  • 00:08:21.784 --> 00:08:25.087
  • Jesus Christ gave himselfas an offering for sin
  • 00:08:25.121 --> 00:08:28.324
  • on or near that very ridge.
  • 00:08:28.357 --> 00:08:31.928
  • From Abraham and his sonto David and his temple
  • 00:08:31.961 --> 00:08:35.765
  • to Christ and his cross.
  • 00:08:35.798 --> 00:08:37.967
  • Everything was linkedand each event had it's roots
  • 00:08:38.000 --> 00:08:41.404
  • the one that preceded it.
  • 00:08:41.437 --> 00:08:43.940
  • You see, the best dreamsdon't start with us,
  • 00:08:43.973 --> 00:08:46.842
  • but instead are planted in usby God.
  • 00:08:46.876 --> 00:08:51.180
  • If it isn't rooted, it's rotten.
  • 00:08:51.213 --> 00:08:53.849
  • We stand on the shouldersof others.
  • 00:08:53.883 --> 00:08:56.018
  • We are links in a chain,that we build on
  • 00:08:56.052 --> 00:08:59.221
  • what others have done,even as future generations
  • 00:08:59.255 --> 00:09:02.258
  • will build on the workthat we have done.
  • 00:09:02.291 --> 00:09:05.595
  • That's why it's all rightto look around for ideas
  • 00:09:05.628 --> 00:09:07.697
  • and see what other peopleare doing.
  • 00:09:07.730 --> 00:09:09.765
  • We get ideas from historyand from how others
  • 00:09:09.799 --> 00:09:12.301
  • are inspired to act today.
  • 00:09:12.335 --> 00:09:15.204
  • To develop your dream,think about your heritage,
  • 00:09:15.237 --> 00:09:18.808
  • what you love to do,your life experiences.
  • 00:09:18.841 --> 00:09:21.577
  • Think about your background.
  • 00:09:21.611 --> 00:09:23.479
  • Everything in your life hasprepared you for the next step,
  • 00:09:23.512 --> 00:09:27.183
  • so look at what's alreadyhappening in your life
  • 00:09:27.216 --> 00:09:29.652
  • and in your church,and start where you are,
  • 00:09:29.685 --> 00:09:32.221
  • and work outward and forward.
  • 00:09:32.254 --> 00:09:36.225
  • Root your dream in history.
  • 00:09:36.258 --> 00:09:39.328
  • Second, reproduce your dreamin a picture.
  • 00:09:39.362 --> 00:09:42.665
  • As ideas and intentions beginto bubble up in your heart
  • 00:09:42.698 --> 00:09:46.936
  • and mind, you need to figureout where to begin and
  • 00:09:46.969 --> 00:09:50.206
  • how to implement your dream,so you have to nudge
  • 00:09:50.239 --> 00:09:52.908
  • the abstract burdeninto a real life plan.
  • 00:09:52.942 --> 00:09:55.778
  • Let me tell youwhat I've learned.
  • 00:09:55.811 --> 00:09:57.313
  • Visionaries have an uncannyability to see their dreams
  • 00:09:57.346 --> 00:10:00.883
  • and convey them in images.
  • 00:10:00.916 --> 00:10:04.153
  • That's how David builtthe impetus needed
  • 00:10:04.186 --> 00:10:06.422
  • for his temple project.
  • 00:10:06.455 --> 00:10:08.758
  • As we have seen,David's dream began
  • 00:10:08.791 --> 00:10:11.093
  • when he told the prophet Nathan,quote,
  • 00:10:11.127 --> 00:10:14.363
  • "See now, I dwellin a house of cedar,
  • 00:10:14.397 --> 00:10:16.832
  • but the ark of God dwellsinside tent curtains."
  • 00:10:16.866 --> 00:10:22.338
  • The temple wasn't someabstract concept.
  • 00:10:22.371 --> 00:10:26.075
  • No, it was a vision that filledDavid's mind in Technicolor.
  • 00:10:26.108 --> 00:10:29.745
  • He was able to convey that imageto others and motivate them
  • 00:10:29.779 --> 00:10:32.715
  • to action by drawing a contrast.
  • 00:10:32.748 --> 00:10:35.851
  • "Look at my palacewith its paneled walls
  • 00:10:35.885 --> 00:10:38.020
  • and glorious bulwarks.
  • 00:10:38.054 --> 00:10:39.822
  • And look at that frayed tentcalled tabernacle.
  • 00:10:39.855 --> 00:10:42.525
  • Shouldn't God's house be betterthan any home of yours or mine?"
  • 00:10:42.558 --> 00:10:47.530
  • You see, the ability to seewhat could be in the future
  • 00:10:47.563 --> 00:10:52.001
  • is essential to strainingforward toward the realization
  • 00:10:52.034 --> 00:10:55.404
  • of your dream.
  • 00:10:55.438 --> 00:10:57.573
  • Don't worry if you can't seethe final fulfillment
  • 00:10:57.606 --> 00:10:59.709
  • of your long term dreams.
  • 00:10:59.742 --> 00:11:01.343
  • We will walk throughthe practical steps toward
  • 00:11:01.377 --> 00:11:03.612
  • reaching successin the time to come.
  • 00:11:03.646 --> 00:11:07.416
  • But for now, what matters isbeing able to imagine your dream
  • 00:11:07.450 --> 00:11:11.687
  • in a way that captivates both,others and you.
  • 00:11:11.721 --> 00:11:17.159
  • And then number three, reinforceyour dream with determination.
  • 00:11:17.193 --> 00:11:24.100
  • David discovered that everydream faces discouragements.
  • 00:11:24.133 --> 00:11:29.038
  • I can give testimony to that.
  • 00:11:29.071 --> 00:11:31.540
  • That's part of the processof proving its validity.
  • 00:11:31.574 --> 00:11:34.310
  • David's dream for the templeexcited him like nothing else
  • 00:11:34.343 --> 00:11:37.379
  • in his whole life.
  • 00:11:37.413 --> 00:11:39.148
  • He was fired up, ready to go,eager to lead
  • 00:11:39.181 --> 00:11:41.150
  • the campaign to build.
  • 00:11:41.183 --> 00:11:42.885
  • He could see it in his mind'seye every time he looked
  • 00:11:42.918 --> 00:11:45.187
  • from his palace rooftoptoward Mount Moriah.
  • 00:11:45.221 --> 00:11:47.256
  • He was ready to seehis dream accomplished.
  • 00:11:47.289 --> 00:11:52.294
  • But then, if you know the story,the roof caved in.
  • 00:11:52.328 --> 00:11:56.599
  • God told David he wouldnot be allowed
  • 00:11:56.632 --> 00:11:59.468
  • to build the templebecause of his violent past.
  • 00:11:59.502 --> 00:12:02.738
  • Here's what God said.
  • 00:12:02.772 --> 00:12:06.275
  • "David, you shall not builda house for my name,
  • 00:12:06.308 --> 00:12:08.778
  • because you have been a manof war and have shed blood.
  • 00:12:08.811 --> 00:12:12.414
  • It is your son Solomon who shallbuild my house and my courts."
  • 00:12:12.448 --> 00:12:19.288
  • You talk about the deathof a vision.
  • 00:12:19.321 --> 00:12:22.224
  • But David didn't pout for long.
  • 00:12:22.258 --> 00:12:24.226
  • I love this story, he toldhimself something like this.
  • 00:12:24.260 --> 00:12:27.263
  • "Well, if I can do it myself andif God has appointed the task
  • 00:12:27.296 --> 00:12:30.499
  • for my son Solomon,then I'll just do all I can
  • 00:12:30.533 --> 00:12:33.502
  • to help him succeed."
  • 00:12:33.536 --> 00:12:35.371
  • In refusing to give upon the project
  • 00:12:36.005 --> 00:12:37.973
  • because he was taken outof the driver's seat
  • 00:12:38.007 --> 00:12:40.910
  • David illustrated a corevalue of dream building.
  • 00:12:40.943 --> 00:12:44.079
  • No dream is ever realizedwithout a huge measure
  • 00:12:44.113 --> 00:12:47.149
  • of determination.
  • 00:12:47.183 --> 00:12:48.984
  • If you're going to seeyour dream through,
  • 00:12:49.018 --> 00:12:50.920
  • you have to be determined.
  • 00:12:50.953 --> 00:12:53.022
  • Number four, reconcileyour dream with its cost.
  • 00:12:53.055 --> 00:12:59.128
  • Dreams are costly, as Davidfound out when God led him
  • 00:12:59.161 --> 00:13:02.231
  • to purchase some landfor the temple at a high spot
  • 00:13:02.264 --> 00:13:05.634
  • in the area.
  • 00:13:05.668 --> 00:13:07.203
  • Here's the story.
  • 00:13:07.236 --> 00:13:08.537
  • Because he was the venerableking of Israel,
  • 00:13:08.571 --> 00:13:10.439
  • I mean, he could have seizedthe land,
  • 00:13:10.472 --> 00:13:12.842
  • he could have just taken it.
  • 00:13:12.875 --> 00:13:14.510
  • But David saidin 2 Samuel 24:24,
  • 00:13:14.543 --> 00:13:17.813
  • "No, no, no, I will surelybuy it from you for a price,
  • 00:13:17.847 --> 00:13:22.685
  • for I will not offer burntofferings to the Lord my God
  • 00:13:22.718 --> 00:13:25.754
  • with that whichcosts me nothing."
  • 00:13:25.788 --> 00:13:30.759
  • Big dreams are expensive.
  • 00:13:30.793 --> 00:13:32.828
  • If you've experienceda fulfilled dream,
  • 00:13:32.862 --> 00:13:34.930
  • you know what I'm talking about.
  • 00:13:34.964 --> 00:13:36.765
  • The cost comes in moneyand energy, in criticism,
  • 00:13:36.799 --> 00:13:40.269
  • in unbelief,in unplanned obstructions,
  • 00:13:40.302 --> 00:13:43.739
  • in unfaithful helpers,and a multitude of other
  • 00:13:43.772 --> 00:13:47.877
  • very discouraging things.
  • 00:13:47.910 --> 00:13:50.179
  • You have to reconcileyour dreams with cost.
  • 00:13:50.212 --> 00:13:53.115
  • If you're looking for a cheap,easy way to get where
  • 00:13:53.148 --> 00:13:56.185
  • you want to go, just stop rightnow, there is no such thing.
  • 00:13:56.218 --> 00:14:00.489
  • To realize your dream,if it's a God-given dream,
  • 00:14:00.522 --> 00:14:03.759
  • there's a price to pay.
  • 00:14:03.792 --> 00:14:06.028
  • But I promise you it is a priceworth paying.
  • 00:14:06.061 --> 00:14:11.634
  • Finally, release your dreamto your legacy.
  • 00:14:11.667 --> 00:14:16.939
  • Looking back on this periodof Israel's history,
  • 00:14:16.972 --> 00:14:19.875
  • one thing jumps out at me,and here it is.
  • 00:14:19.909 --> 00:14:22.778
  • This was David's dream,and it ended up being called
  • 00:14:22.811 --> 00:14:26.181
  • Solomon's Temple.
  • 00:14:26.215 --> 00:14:28.083
  • David's dream, Solomon's Temple.
  • 00:14:28.117 --> 00:14:31.153
  • You see, David notonly accepted that,
  • 00:14:31.186 --> 00:14:34.890
  • he made that happen.
  • 00:14:34.924 --> 00:14:37.026
  • It was his dream all right,but when the dream
  • 00:14:37.059 --> 00:14:40.262
  • was not going to be realizedin his life and God said,
  • 00:14:40.296 --> 00:14:42.898
  • "Pass it on to your son,"David refused to allow
  • 00:14:42.932 --> 00:14:46.368
  • his dream to die when he died.
  • 00:14:46.402 --> 00:14:49.505
  • And although he was notallowed to build the temple,
  • 00:14:49.538 --> 00:14:51.540
  • the Lord gave himthe construction details,
  • 00:14:51.573 --> 00:14:54.410
  • which he passed onto his own son Solomon.
  • 00:14:54.443 --> 00:14:57.680
  • I could imagineDavid transferring
  • 00:14:57.713 --> 00:15:00.049
  • that information from God ontoan architectural blueprint,
  • 00:15:00.082 --> 00:15:03.652
  • and laying it outbefore Solomon, and saying,
  • 00:15:03.686 --> 00:15:05.854
  • "Here it is, boy.
  • 00:15:05.888 --> 00:15:07.790
  • God gave this to me, and this iswhat you're going to build."
  • 00:15:07.823 --> 00:15:12.328
  • David had dreamed of buildinga permanent place
  • 00:15:12.361 --> 00:15:14.863
  • where God could be worshipped.
  • 00:15:14.897 --> 00:15:17.132
  • And he determined to leavesomething behind
  • 00:15:17.166 --> 00:15:19.935
  • that would honor the Lord.
  • 00:15:19.969 --> 00:15:21.870
  • It was his dream,and the resources he put
  • 00:15:21.904 --> 00:15:24.640
  • in that place that allowedhis son Solomon
  • 00:15:24.673 --> 00:15:26.909
  • to move quickly towardthe construction of the temple.
  • 00:15:26.942 --> 00:15:30.746
  • And David's instructions to hisson Solomon have been a charge
  • 00:15:30.779 --> 00:15:34.149
  • to pastors and missionaries andChristian workers ever since.
  • 00:15:34.183 --> 00:15:38.687
  • 1 Chronicles 28:20, "Be strongand of a good courage,
  • 00:15:38.721 --> 00:15:43.092
  • and do it.
  • 00:15:43.125 --> 00:15:44.593
  • Do not fear, nor be dismayed,for the Lord God,
  • 00:15:44.626 --> 00:15:46.996
  • my God, will be with you.
  • 00:15:47.029 --> 00:15:49.598
  • He will not leave younor forsake you,
  • 00:15:49.631 --> 00:15:51.767
  • until you have finishedall the work for the service
  • 00:15:51.800 --> 00:15:55.571
  • of the house of the Lord."
  • 00:15:55.604 --> 00:15:58.307
  • One Sunday afternoon in 1771,a man named Valentin Hauy
  • 00:15:58.340 --> 00:16:07.950
  • ducked into a restaurantin Paris for dinner.
  • 00:16:07.983 --> 00:16:10.919
  • He sat near the stage,and the show that evening
  • 00:16:10.953 --> 00:16:13.689
  • featured blind peopleand a comedy routine.
  • 00:16:13.722 --> 00:16:16.725
  • They were objects of ridiculeand cruelty.
  • 00:16:16.759 --> 00:16:20.195
  • And the act was designedto make fun of their blindness.
  • 00:16:20.229 --> 00:16:23.532
  • Deeply offended, Hauy began todevelop a burden for the blind.
  • 00:16:23.565 --> 00:16:29.972
  • Sometime later, he spotteda sightless street urchin
  • 00:16:30.005 --> 00:16:32.741
  • who was begging for coinsoutside a Parisian church.
  • 00:16:32.775 --> 00:16:36.445
  • Giving the boy some money,Hauy was amazed to see
  • 00:16:36.478 --> 00:16:40.049
  • the boy feel the raised markingson the coins
  • 00:16:40.082 --> 00:16:42.651
  • and distinguish the amounts.
  • 00:16:42.684 --> 00:16:45.454
  • That gave Howie an idea.
  • 00:16:45.487 --> 00:16:47.189
  • Why couldn't books be writtenwith raised letters,
  • 00:16:47.222 --> 00:16:49.892
  • like images on coins?
  • 00:16:49.925 --> 00:16:52.194
  • Why couldn't people learnto read with their fingers?
  • 00:16:52.227 --> 00:16:54.630
  • Hauy took the boyoff the streets,
  • 00:16:54.663 --> 00:16:56.899
  • offered him food and shelter,and devised a plan
  • 00:16:56.932 --> 00:16:59.835
  • with wooden blocks and numbers,and taught the boy to read.
  • 00:16:59.868 --> 00:17:03.138
  • In 1784, Hauy startedthe world's first school
  • 00:17:03.172 --> 00:17:07.376
  • for blind children.
  • 00:17:07.409 --> 00:17:09.044
  • It was in Paris,and one of the first teachers
  • 00:17:09.078 --> 00:17:11.313
  • was the blind boy rescuedfrom the streets.
  • 00:17:11.346 --> 00:17:15.050
  • But that's just the beginning.
  • 00:17:15.084 --> 00:17:16.752
  • Several years later,another boy named Louis
  • 00:17:16.785 --> 00:17:19.288
  • was born in the villageof Coupvray, France.
  • 00:17:19.321 --> 00:17:22.224
  • His father was a farmerand a harness maker.
  • 00:17:22.257 --> 00:17:25.661
  • And as a toddler,Louis loved watching his father
  • 00:17:25.694 --> 00:17:28.630
  • work with leather tools.
  • 00:17:28.664 --> 00:17:31.266
  • But tragedy struck in 1812when 3 year old Louis
  • 00:17:31.300 --> 00:17:34.203
  • began playing with the leftoverscrap of leather,
  • 00:17:34.236 --> 00:17:36.805
  • trying to punch holes in it.
  • 00:17:36.839 --> 00:17:38.540
  • His hand slipped,and the sharp tool punctured
  • 00:17:38.574 --> 00:17:40.709
  • and put out his eye.
  • 00:17:40.742 --> 00:17:43.178
  • And infection set in that spreadto the other eye,
  • 00:17:43.212 --> 00:17:45.414
  • and little Louis ended upblinded in both eyes
  • 00:17:45.447 --> 00:17:49.151
  • for his whole life.
  • 00:17:49.184 --> 00:17:51.353
  • A local minister namedJacques Palluy loved the boy
  • 00:17:51.386 --> 00:17:54.756
  • and began visiting himto read him the Bible.
  • 00:17:54.790 --> 00:17:57.860
  • Seeing the boy had a good mind,Father Jacques determined
  • 00:17:57.893 --> 00:18:00.963
  • he could receive an education.
  • 00:18:00.996 --> 00:18:02.931
  • So, at age ten, Louis wasenrolled in the school Hauy
  • 00:18:02.965 --> 00:18:06.268
  • had established in Paris,where he proved to be
  • 00:18:06.301 --> 00:18:09.138
  • a brilliant student.
  • 00:18:09.171 --> 00:18:11.273
  • Eventually, Louis began teachingother students
  • 00:18:11.306 --> 00:18:14.510
  • in the Paris Schoolfor the Blind.
  • 00:18:14.543 --> 00:18:16.578
  • He studied Hauy's methodof reading.
  • 00:18:16.612 --> 00:18:18.981
  • He also became aware of asystem of military communication
  • 00:18:19.014 --> 00:18:22.117
  • develop by a French army captainthat allowed soldiers
  • 00:18:22.151 --> 00:18:25.187
  • to communicate in the darkby running their fingers
  • 00:18:25.220 --> 00:18:28.123
  • over a series of dotsand dashes.
  • 00:18:28.157 --> 00:18:31.326
  • Though still a teenager,Louis Braille began adopting
  • 00:18:31.360 --> 00:18:36.598
  • these systems into a programof his own.
  • 00:18:36.632 --> 00:18:39.168
  • And in 1829 at age 20,he published a little book
  • 00:18:39.201 --> 00:18:42.337
  • on the Braille methodof reading.
  • 00:18:42.371 --> 00:18:45.874
  • The school resided in a dampbuilding by the river Seine.
  • 00:18:45.908 --> 00:18:49.778
  • It was cold and unhealthy,and the food
  • 00:18:49.811 --> 00:18:51.680
  • and conditions were poor.
  • 00:18:51.713 --> 00:18:53.715
  • Louis got tuberculosis,but he continued working
  • 00:18:53.749 --> 00:18:56.251
  • on his system of reading,which began catching on,
  • 00:18:56.285 --> 00:18:59.188
  • and soon was being exportedall over the world.
  • 00:18:59.221 --> 00:19:02.925
  • As his health failed,Louis said,
  • 00:19:02.958 --> 00:19:06.128
  • "I am convinced my mission onearth has been accomplished.
  • 00:19:06.161 --> 00:19:10.832
  • I ask God to carry me awayfrom this world."
  • 00:19:10.866 --> 00:19:15.270
  • Now, pause for just a momentwith me and think
  • 00:19:15.304 --> 00:19:17.606
  • of the chain reactionof that cascading dream.
  • 00:19:17.639 --> 00:19:22.978
  • One man developed a burdenfor the blind when
  • 00:19:23.011 --> 00:19:26.081
  • he saw ridiculed actors on stageand a beggar boy on the streets.
  • 00:19:26.114 --> 00:19:31.987
  • His burden led him to establisha school and attempt
  • 00:19:32.020 --> 00:19:34.690
  • a system of reading.
  • 00:19:34.723 --> 00:19:36.825
  • Then a local pastor developeda burden for a blind boy
  • 00:19:36.858 --> 00:19:39.861
  • in another village andtaught him the Bible,
  • 00:19:39.895 --> 00:19:41.964
  • and longed to send himto school.
  • 00:19:41.997 --> 00:19:43.966
  • And that blind child,Louis Braille,
  • 00:19:43.999 --> 00:19:46.335
  • developed a burden to improveand expand Hauy's work,
  • 00:19:46.368 --> 00:19:49.638
  • and the world was changed,and as a result,
  • 00:19:49.671 --> 00:19:52.007
  • millions of sightless souls haveexperienced the joy of reading
  • 00:19:52.040 --> 00:19:55.744
  • the Bible and other booksfor themselves now
  • 00:19:55.777 --> 00:19:59.514
  • for almost two centuries.
  • 00:19:59.548 --> 00:20:03.719
  • We may never create a languagefor the blind or build a temple
  • 00:20:03.752 --> 00:20:07.189
  • for the Lord, but pleaseremember there are no small
  • 00:20:07.222 --> 00:20:11.293
  • tasks in the Lord's workand no insignificant dreams.
  • 00:20:11.326 --> 00:20:16.832
  • Our work is never routine,our labor is never wasted,
  • 00:20:16.865 --> 00:20:23.171
  • and our legacy is capableof outliving us.
  • 00:20:23.205 --> 00:20:27.676
  • I've always loved radioand everything about radio.
  • 00:20:27.709 --> 00:20:32.547
  • From sitting next to the radioas a child with my ear
  • 00:20:32.581 --> 00:20:35.917
  • to the speaker so I could listento "The Lone Ranger"
  • 00:20:35.951 --> 00:20:38.387
  • or "The Shadow," to puttingtogether night radio kits
  • 00:20:38.420 --> 00:20:41.790
  • as a teenager,
  • 00:20:41.823 --> 00:20:43.625
  • for reasons I can't explain,I have always loved radio.
  • 00:20:43.659 --> 00:20:49.331
  • And radio has had a mysterioushold over me as far back
  • 00:20:49.364 --> 00:20:52.934
  • as I can remember.
  • 00:20:52.968 --> 00:20:55.137
  • When I became a student atCedarville College in 1959,
  • 00:20:55.170 --> 00:20:58.840
  • I was given the radioopportunity of a lifetime.
  • 00:20:58.874 --> 00:21:02.611
  • A new Christian FM station wasbeing launched in Springfield,
  • 00:21:02.644 --> 00:21:06.181
  • Ohio, just 15 milesfrom my home.
  • 00:21:06.214 --> 00:21:09.651
  • I don't rememberhow it happened,
  • 00:21:09.685 --> 00:21:11.753
  • but I was able to audition foran on-air announcing position,
  • 00:21:11.787 --> 00:21:15.857
  • and I got the job.
  • 00:21:15.891 --> 00:21:17.859
  • I did the news, I hostedthe call-in music shows,
  • 00:21:17.893 --> 00:21:22.130
  • I queued up and playedradio programs like,
  • 00:21:22.164 --> 00:21:24.833
  • "Back to the Bible"and "Unshackled."
  • 00:21:24.866 --> 00:21:27.102
  • When I was asked to help starta radio station on the campus
  • 00:21:27.135 --> 00:21:30.639
  • of Cedarville College,I teamed up with Paul Gaffney,
  • 00:21:30.672 --> 00:21:34.309
  • a college classmate,and my girlfriend
  • 00:21:34.343 --> 00:21:37.346
  • and soon to be wife,Donna Thompson,
  • 00:21:37.379 --> 00:21:38.947
  • and we launched WCDR FM.
  • 00:21:38.980 --> 00:21:43.885
  • But in time, that station grewto a network of stations
  • 00:21:43.919 --> 00:21:47.322
  • that literally coveredthe entire Miami Valley
  • 00:21:47.356 --> 00:21:50.492
  • with great Christian musicand the message of the gospel.
  • 00:21:50.525 --> 00:21:53.562
  • When I was a junior in college,God called me into the ministry.
  • 00:21:53.595 --> 00:21:58.700
  • It was absolutely, definitelyclear to me that I was
  • 00:21:58.734 --> 00:22:02.504
  • to become a preacherof the gospel,
  • 00:22:02.537 --> 00:22:04.573
  • so I immediately enrolled inDallas Theological Seminary.
  • 00:22:04.606 --> 00:22:09.111
  • Donna and I got married rightafter graduation from college,
  • 00:22:09.144 --> 00:22:12.147
  • and we headed offto Texas for four years
  • 00:22:12.180 --> 00:22:14.549
  • of postgraduate learning.
  • 00:22:14.583 --> 00:22:17.219
  • My greatest regret, if I couldcall it that, was this.
  • 00:22:17.252 --> 00:22:21.323
  • I loved radio.
  • 00:22:21.356 --> 00:22:23.258
  • I had spent most of my lifeinvolved with radio.
  • 00:22:23.291 --> 00:22:27.396
  • Yet, now it appearedGod was leading me
  • 00:22:27.429 --> 00:22:29.264
  • in a totally different directionin terms of my vocation
  • 00:22:29.297 --> 00:22:32.300
  • and lifelong calling.
  • 00:22:32.334 --> 00:22:35.170
  • Radio was put on holdfor four years
  • 00:22:35.203 --> 00:22:37.172
  • while I workedon my masters degree.
  • 00:22:37.205 --> 00:22:39.608
  • But what happened after thatis one of the most
  • 00:22:39.641 --> 00:22:41.843
  • amazing stories of my life.
  • 00:22:41.877 --> 00:22:44.446
  • After a short stint asa youth pastor in New Jersey
  • 00:22:44.479 --> 00:22:47.516
  • and 12 years as a pastor ofa startup church in Fort Wayne,
  • 00:22:47.549 --> 00:22:51.086
  • Indiana, I accepted the call toShadow Mountain Community Church
  • 00:22:51.119 --> 00:22:54.756
  • in San Diego.
  • 00:22:54.790 --> 00:22:57.325
  • And the next year, I begana local five day a week
  • 00:22:57.359 --> 00:23:00.162
  • teaching program on a Christianstation in San Diego,
  • 00:23:00.195 --> 00:23:04.032
  • Salem Radio's KPRZ
  • 00:23:04.065 --> 00:23:07.335
  • and the rest is history.
  • 00:23:07.369 --> 00:23:10.439
  • Today, "Turning Point" hitsthe airwaves on more than
  • 00:23:10.472 --> 00:23:13.809
  • 3.000 radio stationsin the United States.
  • 00:23:13.842 --> 00:23:17.345
  • "Momento Decisivo," the Spanishedition of "Turning Point,"
  • 00:23:17.379 --> 00:23:21.016
  • is heard in every countrywhere Spanish is spoken.
  • 00:23:21.049 --> 00:23:24.186
  • So, you can seeGod did not call me
  • 00:23:24.219 --> 00:23:28.256
  • into the ministry to takemy dream away.
  • 00:23:28.290 --> 00:23:30.892
  • He called me into the ministrybecause my dream was
  • 00:23:30.926 --> 00:23:33.562
  • way too small.
  • 00:23:33.595 --> 00:23:35.630
  • He had a much better anda much bigger plan for my life.
  • 00:23:35.664 --> 00:23:39.100
  • And as a result ofthose experiences,
  • 00:23:39.134 --> 00:23:40.902
  • I've learned I can trust Godwith my dreams,
  • 00:23:40.936 --> 00:23:44.706
  • even as I move forwardtoward his plans for my life.
  • 00:23:44.739 --> 00:23:48.677
  • And I've told you allthe stories and shared
  • 00:23:48.710 --> 00:23:51.046
  • all of this gospel message fromthe Bible to tell you one thing.
  • 00:23:51.079 --> 00:23:54.416
  • You can trust Godwith his vision for your life.

  • "God put it in my heart."

  • And when God puts somethingin your heart and gives you
  • 00:24:03.024 --> 00:24:05.293
  • a dream, never stopuntil you've realized it,
  • 00:24:05.327 --> 00:24:09.197
  • and you will bethe most blessed person
