Live in your vision
I was going over some things recently, looking at some stuff I’d done in the past previously, and things meant to come. It suddenly came to me…In order for someone to get to a place, there is a journey. This being said, after the journey is completed, there is more to come in most cases. Only by living in your vision, can you progress and continue to move forward. Living in your vision is the only way the vision will remain reality to you.
It is easy to forget what you desire to do if you never surround yourself with it. Once you are surrounded in it, the real nature of it comes back. I was recently talking with someone about the way people are enslaved today. This is because there is no vision, the Bible says without a vision the people perish…Where there is no vision, there is no life. People may not understand this, however the principle is very clear. When there is nothing to look to, how do you expect where you are currently to be exciting or productive?
Living in your vision keeps you challenging yourself daily to be better. The passion is still there and you are motivated about the steps you are walking into. True passion comes from doing what you know you need to, not doing something for someone else. Jesus could talk the talk about being a servant for the people because he knew he was destined to provide the ultimate service for the world. I know teachers who have limited themselves, just teaching in any capacity. I have seen friends who were gifted in sports/athletics let go of these ambitions for trivial things. How many times do you ask yourself, are you doing the right thing? How many times do you review what you have done/are doing and decide whether you’re actually doing what you need or are just settling. If you never make yourself accountable to something, you can easily lower your standards and soon you will be on the ground.
